Non-contractile tails are made of one major shaft or tube protein and contractile tails have a second major protein, the sheath protein, that forms a cylinder around the central tube. Tails also have small numbers of varied specific proteins at both ends. Those at the end distal from the head form a structure called the tail tip (Siphovirus) or baseplate (Myovirus) to which the tail fibers are attached. The tail fibers bind to the first-contact receptors on the surface of susceptible cells. Fibers or baseplates may include proteins with endoglycosidase or peptidoglycan hydrolase activity that aid in gaining access to the cell surface and entry of DNA into the cell.
The modules of sequence that constitute the mosaic are typically individual genes, but they can also be parts of genes corresponding to protein domains, or small groups of genes such as prohead assembly genes. The mosaicism is evidently the result of non-homologous recombination during the evolution of these viruses. The novel juxtapositions of sequence produced in this way are spread through the population and reassorted with each other by means of homologous recombination. Regardless of mechanism, the overall result is as if each phage had constituted its genome by picking modules from a menu, choosing one module from each of perhaps fifty columns, each of which has alternative choices.
