>Dear Mark,
>from my point of view, it can not be predicted "how large a polypeptide can be
>expressed, fused to the N terminal of the gene III product, without
>significantly affecting its function".
>As you know, the N-terminus of pIII is important for phage infectivity, I
>think that the size of the N-terminal fusion is not the only thing that has
>to be considered, also its expression, folding, capability to be translocated,
>composition, stability in E. coli are very (if not more...) important.
>A "strange" peptide could be worse than a large protein for pIII function.
>Best wishes for your work.
