Single-stranded RNA (ssRNA) bacteriophages of the family Leviviridae infect gram-negative bacteria. They are restricted to a single host genus. Phage PRR1 is an exception, having a broad host range due to the promiscuity of the receptor encoded by the IncP plasmid. Here we report the complete genome sequence of PRR1. Three proteins homologous with those of other ssRNA phages, i.e., maturation, coat, and replicase proteins, were identified. A fourth protein has a lysis function. Comparison of… CONTINUE READING
