Temporal Analysis of Bacteriophage Felix O1 Gene Expression
MetadataShow full item record
All of the 115 putative open reading frames (ORFs) studied were found to be functional. 53.0%, 9.6%, and 18.3% of the ORFs investigated were found to initiate expression early, middle or late in the lytic cycle, respectively. Expression of the remaining 19.1% ORFs was evident when the amount of total RNA was increased and when samples were taken at a later time point. Comparisons between bacteriophage Felix O1 and the phage with the most shared homologs, phage T4, revealed many similarities in times of gene expression.
