Induction by mitomycin or high-temperature treatment resulted in the production of bacteriocins and phages in both phases of Xenorhabdus nematophilus A24, indicating lysogeny. Phage DNA purified from X. nematophilus A24 hybridized to several fragments of DraI-digested A24 chromosomal DNA, confirming that the phage genome was incorporated into the bacterial(More)
Lysogeny has previously been described in the entomopathogenic bacteria of the genus Xenorhabdus. Screening of a X. nematophila prophage DNA library on blood agar resulted in the identification of a 5.7-kb locus that caused a haemolytic phenotype when cloned in Escherichia coli, but not in the E. coli sheA null mutant, lacking the SheA cryptic haemolysin.(More)
