Cloning , Sequencing , and Genetic Characterization of Regulatory Genes , rinA and rinB , Required for the Activation of Staphylococcal Phage + 11 int Expression ZHI - HAI


The int gene of staphylococcal bacteriophage +11 is the only viral gene responsible for the integrative recombination of +11. To study the regulation of int gene expression, we determined the 5' end of the transcript by S1 mapping. The presumed promoter is located just 22 nucleotides upstream of the int open reading frame in a region which is conserved… (More)
