    The ability of phages to infect specific bacteria has led to their exploitation as bio-tools for bacterial remediation and detection. Many phages recognize bacterial hosts via adhesin tips of their long tail fibers (LTFs). Adhesin sequence plasticity modulates receptor specificity, and thus primarily defines a phage's host range. Here we present the crystal structure of an adhesin (gp38) attached to a trimeric β-helical tip (gp37) from the Salmonella phage S16 LTF. Gp38 contains rare polyglycine type II helices folded into a packed lattice, herein designated "PG II sandwich." Sequence variability within the domain is limited to surface-exposed helices and distal loops that form putative receptor-binding sites. In silico analyses revealed a prevalence of the adhesin architecture among T-even phages, excluding the archetypal T4 phage. Overall, S16 LTF provides a valuable model for understanding binding mechanisms of phage adhesins, and for engineering of phage adhesins with expandable or modulated host ranges.
