Morphology of temperate bacteriophage SfV and characterisation of the DNA packaging and capsid genes: the structural genes evolved from two different phage families

Allison, Gwen; Angeles, D; Huan, P; Verma, Naresh


The entire genome of SfV, a temperate serotype-converting bacteriophage of Shigella flexneri, has recently been sequenced (Allison, G.E., Angeles, D., Tran-Dinh, N., Verma, N.K. 2002, J. Bacteriol. 184, 1974-1987). Based on the sequence analysis, we further characterised the SfV virion structure and morphogenesis. Electron microscopy indicated that SfV belongs to the Myoviridae morphology family. Analysis of the proteins encoded by orf1, orf2, and orf3 revealed that they were homologous to...[Show more]
