Inheritance of prophage P2 in bacterial crosses



Inheritance of prophage P2 in bacterial crosses



Virology 6(2): 357-381



Prophage P2 may be located on the genetic chromosome of the host cell (Escherichia coli strain C) by crossing genetically marked lysogenic strains. At lysogenization, prophage P2 establishes itself at a specific locus (location I or preferred location). In the process of double lysogenization by means of super-infection of a singly lysogenic strain, the second prophage establishes itself at a different locus. Two such second-choice locations are recognized. In superinfection of doubly lysogenic strains, substitution of the prophage in location I occurs more often than substitution of the prophage in the second-choice location. A temperate phage closely related to P2, but belonging to a different immunity class, behaves like P2 in respect to location choice. In doubly lysogenic strains the prophage in the preferred location contributes more heavily than the other prophages to the phage yield of the lysogenic cells.
