Modeling the fitness consequences of a cyanophage-encoded photosynthesis gene

Bragg, Jason G.; Chisholm, Sallie W.


BACKGROUND Phages infecting marine picocyanobacteria often carry a psbA gene, which encodes a homolog to the photosynthetic reaction center protein, D1. Host encoded D1 decays during phage infection in the light. Phage encoded D1 may help to maintain photosynthesis during the lytic cycle, which in turn could bolster the production of deoxynucleoside triphosphates (dNTPs) for phage genome replication. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS To explore the consequences to a phage of encoding and...[Show more]
