A secondary attachment site for bacteriophage lambda in trpC of E. coli.

We have determined the nucleotide sequence of a secondary lambda attachment site in trpC. Direct sequence analysis of lambdatrp transducing phage DNA fragments carrying the two prophage attachment sites reveals a 6 nucleotide homology in the crossover region which is a subset of the 15 nucleotide core sequence in the primary lambda attachment site… (More)
