Comparison of eight lambdoid phages, including three Shiga-toxin converting phages, has been carried out with respect to the immunity region, especially the recognition helices of their repressor and CRO proteins on the one hand, and operator sequences on the other. Some as yet unassigned components of the regulatory circuits have been inferred by computer search. The cross immunity phenomenon shown by phages VT2-Sa and lambda is explained on the basis of similarity in their sequences. In… CONTINUE READING
