Murein hydrolases appear to be widespread in the virions of bacteriophages infecting Gram-positive or Gram-negative bacteria. Muralytic activity has been found in virions of the majority of a diverse collection of phages. Where known, the enzyme is either part of a large protein or found associated with other structural components of the virion that limit enzyme activity. In most cases, the lack of genetic and structural characterization of the phage precludes making a definitive identification… CONTINUE READING
