Analysis of the morphogenetic cluster and genome of the temperate Lactobacillus casei bacteriophage A2

Abstract

 The genes that encode the morphogenetic proteins of bacteriophage A2 are clustered and expressed as a single operon which originates a late transcript of more than 20 kb. This DNA stretch is analyzed in the context of the whole phage genome, which presents the following peculiarities: a) the head presents two major proteins that share their NH2 termini, i… (More)
