1 Involvement of the membranes in ϕ6 entry There are receptor-binding spikes on the ϕ6 virion surface that are made of protein P3. These spikes are anchored to the virion through the integral membrane protein P6. For ϕ6, the receptor is the side of a type IV pilus (host pathogenesis factor) extending from the host cell surface (Fig. 3H; Mindich, Sinclair, & Cohen, 1976; Roine, Nunn, Paulin, & Romantschuk, 1996; Roine, Raineri, Romantschuk, Wilson, & Nunn, 1998; Romantschuk & Bamford, 1985, 1986).

One more proposed genus belonging to Lipothrixviridae is “Deltalipothrixvirus,” which includes a single isolate—Acidianus filamentous virus 2 (AFV2). Although AFV2 shares morphological similarity and Figure 5 Lipothrixviruses.

The asymmetric distribution may be a consequence of the shapes and charges of different phospholipid molecules and their interactions with the surrounding membrane proteins. In addition, the membrane proteins may affect the lipid composition locally driving the selective uptake of the lipids from the host pool. , 2013; Fig. 3A and B). The process is initiated by specific recognition of the cellular receptor (IncP plasmid-encoded DNA transfer complex) by the receptor recognizing fivefold spike protein P2 (Grahn, Caldentey, Bamford, & 30 Nina S.
