Genes 34, 35, 36, and 37 code for the major structural proteins of the phage T4 long tail-fiber (diagram of the long tail-fiber structure is adapted from Fig. 1 of [38]). The residual stocks contained two point mutations resulting in changes to the amino acid sequence of domains D5 and D7 of the long tail-fiber.
