The coding regions of six putative open reading frames (ORFs) identified near the phage phi31 late promoter and the right cohesive end (cos) of lactococcal bacteriophage phi31 were used to develop antisense constructs to inhibit the proliferation of phage phi31. Two middle-expressed ORFs (ORF 1 and ORF 2) and four late-expressed ORFs (ORF 3 through ORF 6)(More)
A novel system that leaks beta-galactosidase (beta-gal) without a requirement for secretion or export signals was developed in Lactococcus lactis by controlled expression of integrated phage holin and lysin cassettes. The late promoter of the lytic lactococcal bacteriophage phi31 is an 888-bp fragment (P(15A10)) encoding the transcriptional activator. When(More)
