Abstract: By in vitro complementation we have determined that gene 13 product functions during φ29 morphogenesis after the formation of 11− particles, specifically in the functional assembly of the tail protein, p9. Protein p9 from 8− but not from 8−13− extracts assembles in vitro into either 11−13− or 12−13− particles. The action of gene 13 product on p9 for its correct assembly has to take place in vivo; no complementation of 12−13− and 9− lysates occurs in vitro. Protein p9, isolated from φ29-infected cells, copurifies with the 13+ activity and it is present both in 13+ and 13− extracts as an aggregate with dimensions similar to those of the tail assembled in mature phage.
