Serotype-converting bacteriphages and O-antigen modification in Shigella flexneri

Allison, Gwen; Verma, Naresh


O-antigen modification (serotype conversion) in Shigella flexneri, which is an important virulence determinant, is conferred by temperate bacteriophages. Several serotype-converting phages have been isolated and preliminary characterization has identified the genes involved in O-antigen modification, and has also provided insight into the molecular biology of these phages.
