Figure 16-1: The genomic segments of Φ6. Proteins P7, P2, P4 and P1 comprise the inner core particle. Proteins P6 and P3 are the host attachment apparatus while P10 and P5 are involved in host cell lysis. P5 is also involved in host penetration. P9 is the major membrane protein, which is inserted into membrane through the action of P12. P8 forms a shell around the inner core particle. Each segment has a unique pac region near the 5 end of the plus strand.
