ABSTRACT: Salmonella bacteriophage ? is a member of the Siphoviridae family that gains entry into its host cells by adsorbing to their flagella. We report the complete 59,578-bp sequence of the genome of phage ?, which together with its relatives, exemplifies a largely unexplored type of tailed bacteriophage.
Project description:Det7 is a Myoviridae bacteriophage that gains entry into its Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium host cells by adsorbing to O-antigen polysaccharide. We report here the complete 157,498-bp sequence of its genome. Det7, together with its Vi01-like relatives, are distantly related to phage T4.
Project description:Escherichia coli bacteriophage Utah is a member of the chi-like tailed phage cluster in the Siphoviridae family. We report here the complete 59,024-bp sequence of the genome of phage Utah.
Project description:The virulent double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) bacteriophage 9NA infects Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium and has a long noncontractile tail. We report its complete 52,869-bp genome sequence. Phage 9NA and two closely related S. enterica serovar Newport phages represent a tailed phage type whose molecular lifestyle has not yet been studied in detail.
Project description:Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis has remained a major food-borne pathogen in humans. We isolated a virulent S. enterica serovar Enteritidis bacteriophage, SE2, which belongs to the family Siphoviridae. Phage SE2 could lyse S. enterica serovar Enteritidis PT-4, and its virulence was maintained even at ambient temperature. The genomic sequence of phage SE2 was composed of 43,221 bp with close similarity to those of Salmonella phage SETP3 and Salmonella phage SS3e. The strong and stable lytic activity of this phage might enable its use as a therapeutic or biocontrol agent against S. enterica serovar Enteritidis.
Project description:A novel lytic bacteriophage, SA11, infecting Staphylococcus aureus was isolated, and the whole genome was sequenced. It belongs to the siphoviridae based on electron microscopic observation. It has a linear double-stranded DNA genome of 136,326 bp. Genomic analysis showed that it is distantly related to Staphylococcus phages A5W, K, ISP, Sb-1, and G1.
Project description:The bacteriophage 100268_sal2 was isolated from water buffalo feces in southern Italy, exhibiting lytic activity against several subspecies of Salmonella enterica This bacteriophage belongs to the Siphoviridae family and has a 125,114-bp double-stranded DNA (ds-DNA) genome containing 188 coding sequences (CDSs).
Project description:Bacteriophage f18SE was isolated from poultry sewage in Olmue, Chile, and lytic activity was demonstrated against Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis and serovar Pullorum strains. This bacteriophage has a 41,868-bp double-stranded DNA (ds-DNA) genome encoding 53 coding sequences (CDSs) and belongs to the family Siphoviridae, subfamily Jerseyvirinae.
Project description:The bacteriophage LSPA1 was isolated from hospital sewage (Kunming, China), and lytic activity was demonstrated against the Salmonella enterica serovar Paratyphi A CMCC50973 strain. This bacteriophage has a 41,880-bp double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) genome encoding 58 coding sequences (CDSs) and belongs to the family Siphoviridae.
Project description:Bacteriophage P8625 is a lytic bacteriophage that infects the verrucomicrobial strain IMCC8625, a marine bacterium affiliated with Verrucomicrobia subdivision 4. Both the bacteriophage and the host bacterial strain were isolated from surface seawater samples collected off the east coast of Korea. The phage particle has an icosahedral capsid with a diameter of ~47 nm and a long tail of ~75 nm in length, showing the distinctive morphology of the Siphoviridae family. The complete genome sequence of phage P8625 is 32,894 bp long with 51.0 % G?+?C content. This is the first report of the complete genome sequence of a lytic phage that infects the Verrucomicrobia, for which the name "verrucophage" is proposed.
