A new temperate actinophage from Streptomyces galilaeus ATCC 31133 was purified after that strain was crossed with S. peucetius ATCC 29050. Sensitive hosts became lysogenized and yielded turbid plaques of 2 to 3 mm in diameter. Host-range analysis indicated that 16 of 27 Streptomyces strains tested were sensitive to infection on solid medium. S. lividans and S. coelicolor A3(2) were among those not infected by this new actinophage. The new actinophage, designated phi SPK1, belongs to the… CONTINUE READING
