(A) Major structural components of bacteriophage T4. (B) A schematic of the phage T4 infection process: (I) Phage T4 recognizes the host cell and binds to the cell membrane using the long tail fibers. (II) The baseplate undergoes a large conformational change from a dome-shaped to a star- shaped structure and the short fibers attach to the cell irreversibly. (III) The sheath contracts from the extended state to the contracted state. (IV) During sheath contraction, the rigid tail tube pierces the cell host outer membrane and then initiates translocation of DNA into the host.
