Related repressor specificity of unrelated phages

Abstract

Phage 16-3 of the nitrogen fixing bacterium Rhizobium meliloti is a typical temperate phage as are the lambdoid phages of Escherichia coli. To date there is no genetic or physical evidence to indicate that 16-3 is related to the lambdoids. The genome of 16-3 is regulated by two repressors which bind to their operators1—9 (Fig. 1 a). Here we report that one… (More)
