Virus T4 genome is synthesized within the host cell using Rolling Circle Replication. The tail fibres are also important in recognizing host cell surface receptors, so they determine if a bacterium is within the virus’s host range.

The T4 genome is terminally redundant and is first replicated as a unit, then several genomic units are recombined end-to-end to form a concatemer. J “et al” Bacteriophage attachment methods specific to T4, analysis, Overview.
