Shewanella putrefaciens has been identified as a specific spoilage organism commonly found in chilled fresh fish, which contributes to the spoilage of fish products. Limiting S. putrefaciens growth can extend the shelf-life of chilled fish. Endolysins, which are lytic enzymes produced by bacteriophages, have been considered an alternative to control bacterial growth, and have been useful in various applications, including food preservation. We report here, for the first time, the complete… 
Characteristics of Two Lysis-Related Proteins from a Shewanella putrefaciens Phage with High Lytic Activity and Wide Spectrum.
The present work is to the authors' knowledge the first report on lysis-related enzymes encoded in the Shewanella phage and presented extraordinary potential to control S. putrefaciens; it is hoped that these proteins can be developed as novel antibacterial agents in further research.
The Vibrio parahaemolyticus-infecting bacteriophage qdvp001: genome sequence and endolysin with a modular structure
The results showed that the purified endolysin LysqdVP001 had a high hydrolytic activity toward Vibrio parahaemolyticus and a broader spectrum compared to that of the parental bacteriophage qdvp001, which has a potential to be used as an antibacterial agent in the future.
Complete Genome of a Novel Lytic Vibrio parahaemolyticus Phage VPp1 and Characterization of Its Endolysin for Antibacterial Activities.
The results contribute to the potential for development of novel enzybiotics for controlling V. parahaemolyticus by determining the antibacterial activities of the recombinant endolysin (LysVPp1) derived from this phage.
Isolation and Characterization of Shewanella Phage Thanatos Infecting and Lysing Shewanella oneidensis and Promoting Nascent Biofilm Formation
Species of the genus Shewanella are widespread in nature in various habitats, however, little is known about phages affecting Shewanella sp. Here, we report the isolation of phages from diverse
A Novel Benthic Phage Infecting Shewanella with Strong Replication Ability
This study represents the first report of a benthic phage infecting Shewanella, which also sheds light on the phage–host interactions in coastal sediments.
Characterization of a broad-spectrum endolysin LysSP1 encoded by a Salmonella bacteriophage.
LysSP1 is a broad-spectrum endolysin and has potential as an antimicrobial agent against Salmonella and other foodborne pathogens and has a broad range of hosts including Gram-negative bacteria and Gram-positive bacteria.
Isolation and Characterization of a Shewanella Phage–Host System from the Gut of the Tunicate, Ciona intestinalis
In vitro biofilm assays demonstrated that lytic phage infection affects biofilm formation in a process likely influenced by the accumulation and integration of the extracellular DNA released during cell lysis, similar to the mechanism that has been previously shown for prophage induction.
Characterization of the novel T4-like Salmonella enterica bacteriophage STP4-a and its endolysin
Bacterial challenge assays showed that different serovars of Salmonella enterica were susceptible to STP4-a infection, providing essential information for the development of novel phage-based biocontrol agents against S. enterica and Escherichia coli.


Characterization of LysB4, an endolysin from the Bacillus cereus-infecting bacteriophage B4
LysB4 is believed to be the first reported L-alanoyl-D-glutamate endopeptidase of this type to target B. cereus-infecting bacteriophages and a good candidate as a biocontrol agent against B. Cereus and other pathogenic bacteria.
The Murein Hydrolase of the Bacteriophage φ3626 Dual Lysis System Is Active against All Tested Clostridium perfringens Strains
The cell wall lysis system of C. perfringens were sensitive to the murein hydrolase, whereas other clostridia and bacteria belonging to other genera were generally not affected and might be useful for novel biocontrol measures in food, feed, and complex microbial communities.
Genomic, Proteomic and Physiological Characterization of a T5-like Bacteriophage for Control of Shiga Toxin-Producing Escherichia coli O157:H7
Phage AKFV33 is a unique, highly lytic STEC O157:H7-specific T5-like phage that may have considerable potential as a pre- and post-harvest biocontrol agent.
Bioinformatic analysis of the Acinetobacter baumannii phage AB1 genome.
Gene Cloning and Expression and Secretion ofListeria monocytogenes Bacteriophage-Lytic Enzymes inLactococcus lactis
Bacteriophage lysins (Ply), or endolysins, are phage-encoded cell wall lytic enzymes which are synthesized late during virus multiplication and mediate the release of progeny virions and the vector is compatible with the native lactococcal plasmids.
wksl3, a New Biocontrol Agent for Salmonella enterica Serovars Enteritidis and Typhimurium in Foods: Characterization, Application, Sequence Analysis, and Oral Acute Toxicity Study
The strong, stable lytic activity, the significant reduction of the number of S. Enteritidis bacteria after application to food, and the lack of clinical symptoms of this phage suggest that wksl3 may be a useful agent for the protection of foods against S.Enteritidis and S. Typhimurium contamination.
Characterization of Modular Bacteriophage Endolysins from Myoviridae Phages OBP, 201ϕ2-1 and PVP-SE1
Peptidoglycan lytic enzymes (endolysins) induce bacterial host cell lysis in the late phase of the lytic bacteriophage replication cycle. Endolysins OBPgp279 (from Pseudomonas fluorescens phage OBP),
Characterization of five novel endolysins from Gram-negative infecting bacteriophages
Five globular endolysins encoded by a set of Gram-negative infecting bacteriophages show a lower enzymatic and antibacterial activity, in comparison to modular endolySins, and it is suggested that the latter should be favored for antibacterial applications.
