The temperate Yersinia phage PY54 belongs to the unusual group of phages that replicate as linear plasmids with covalently closed ends. Besides Escherichia coli phage N15, PY54 is the only member of this group to be identified. We have determined the complete sequence (46,339 bp) of the PY54 genome. Bioinformatic analyses revealed 67 open reading frames (ORFs) with good coding potential located on both DNA strands. The comparison of the deduced PY54 gene products with known proteins encoded by… CONTINUE READING
