Nine strains of Brevundimonas vesicularis were isolated from surface water of three ponds in Bielefeld, Germany. With those strains as indicators seven bacteriophages with different host ranges were isolated. Molecular characterization showed that all phages contained linear double-stranded DNA with a similar genome size of about 37 kb. Restriction analysis and hybridization of phage DNAs revealed that three of these phages are closely related to each other. These phages had morphologies… CONTINUE READING
