Physicochemical characterization of cyanophage SM-2


Cyanophage SM-2 which infects two unicellular cyanobacteria, Synechococcus elongatus UTEX 563 and Microcystis aeruginosa NRC-1 (Synechococcus sp. NRC-1) UTEX 1937 has a buoyant density of 1.483 g/cm3, a DNA buoyant density of 1.729 g/cm3 and a guanine + cytosine (G+C) content of 69–70%. The protein patterns of cyanophage SM-2 particles showed 11 bands, as… (More)
