Abstract: BackgroundVibrio cholerae O139 Bengal is the only serogroup other than O1 implicated in cholera epidemics. We describe the isolation and characterization of an O139 serogroup-specific phage, vB_VchP_VchO139-I (ϕVchO139-I) that has similar host range and virion morphology as phage vB_VchP_JA1 (ϕJA1) described previously. We aimed at a complete molecular characterization of both phages and elucidation of their genetic and structural differences and assessment of their genetic relatedness to the N4-like phage gro… Show more

“…The existence of terminal repeats was suggested during sequence analysis by the identification of a localized area in the genome which had twice the read depth compared with the rest of the genome. Identification of phage genome ends by this approach has been reported for other phages (Fouts et al, 2013; Li et al, 2014). The existence of the terminal repeats was verified by PFGE, which indicated that the size of genome obtained from sequencing is within the correct range (Figure 2).…”

“…One of the characteristics of N4-like phage genome is the presence of short direct terminal repeats with variable lengths (390–440 bp) at the 3′ protrusions [5], [6], [28]. In this study, we isolated a N4-like Escherichia coli bacteriophage, IME11, and sequenced its genomic DNA by high-throughput sequencing (JX880034).…”

“…Intein-containing haloviruses were described recently in metatranscriptomic analysis of the hypersaline community (46). Bacteriophage that carry inteins are also prevalent and were reported for Bacillus (47,48), Mycobacteria (49), and Caulobacter (50), among others (16,(51)(52)(53).…”
