Morphologically identical phages PZA, PZE , phi 29, and phi 15 can be distinguished by the neutralization test with rabbit antisera and by host range specificity. Each member of this phage group contains 18 kb double-stranded linear DNA carrying proteins covalently attached to its 5' ends. Physical maps of their DNA constructed with the use of restriction endonucleases EcoRI, HpaI, HindIII, BspRI, and XbaI and DNA-DNA hybridization experiments show a closer relationship between phi 29 and PZE… CONTINUE READING
