We report the complete 40,938-bp genome sequence of a cyanophage, Pf-WMP4, which infects the freshwater cyanobacterium Phormidium foveolarum Gom. Nine of the forty-five potential open reading frames in the Pf-WMP4 genome share similarities with the genes found in T7-like phages. Using in vitro transcription, we found that seven promoters at the leftmost end of the genome can be recognized by the host RNA polymerase. By blocking transcriptional and translational inhibitors, we found that Pf-WMP4… CONTINUE READING
