Bacteriophage GIL01, infecting Bacillus thuringiensis serovar israelensis, possesses a linear dsDNA genome of 14,931 bp with proteins attached to its 5' extremities and terminal inverted repeats at both ends. Viral particles are sensitive to organic solvents, suggesting that a lipid membrane is present in the capsid. All these characteristics are reminiscent of those found in members of the Tectiviridae family. Sequence analysis of GIL01 revealed the presence of two open reading frames (ORF25… CONTINUE READING
