We have sequenced and characterized two R-plasmid-dependent single-stranded RNA bacteriophages (RPD ssRNA phages), C-1 and Hagl1. Phage C-1 requires a conjugative plasmid of the IncC group, while Hgal1 requires the IncH group. Both the adsorption rate constants and one-step growth curves are determined for both phages. We also empirically confirmed the lysis function of the predicted lysis genes. Genomic sequencing and phylogenetic analyses showed that both phages belong to the Levivirus group… CONTINUE READING
