Escherichia coli has been used as an indicator of the fecal contamination of water and food, identifying potential health hazards. In this study, an E. coli-specific bacteriophage, T4, was used to detect E. coli bacteria. The T4 phage small outer capsid (SOC) protein was used to present green fluorescent protein (GFP), an easily detectable marker protein… CONTINUE READING
