The genome of BCJA1c: a bacteriophage active against the alkaliphilic bacterium, Bacillus clarkii

Abstract

The sequence of the genome of the first alkaliphilic bacteriophage has been determined. Temperate phage BCJA1 possesses a terminally redundant genome of approximately 41 kb, with a mol% G+C content of 41.7 and 59 genes arranged predominantly into two divergent transcriptons. The integrase gene of this phage is unique in that it contains a ribosomal slippage… (More)
