Characterization and complete genome sequence analysis of a novel virulent Siphoviridae phage against Staphylococcus aureus isolated from bovine mastitis in Xinjiang, China.
Electron micrographs of oEU-3 phage showed an icosahedral head with a diameter of ~71.42 nm and a 214.28 nm long non-contractile tail (a character of Siphoviridae phages).
Tailed phages are the most abundant group among reported phages and represent 96% of the total; within this group 61% belong to Siphoviridae family, 25% to Myoviridae and 14.5% to Podoviridae [24].
El orden Caudovirales esta conformado por tres familias: Myoviridae, con cola rigida, larga y contractil; Siphoviridae, cola no contractil, larga y flexible, y Podoviridae, cola no contractil y corta (Monk et al.
the contract is to develop a chemical carrier of bacteriophages to their external use in infections associated with diabetic foot ulcers and to identify the biological and genetic phage typed as components of the product (25 bacteriophages mainly from the family siphoviridae and myoviridae).
Siphophages or siphoviridae phages infect methanogens such as Methanococcus Methanobrevibacter and Methanobacterium spp.
TEM observation of the phage [PHI]MSP revealed that it had an icosahedral head/capsid and a noncontractile tail and was similar to the members belonging to Siphoviridae family according to the guidelines of the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses.
Muchos fagos han sido aislados en BAL y, en su mayoria, corresponden a la familia Siphoviridae (tipo B), la cual se caracteriza por la existencia de fagos virulentos y DNA bicatenario de alrededor de 35[+ o -]3.0 kpb sin extremos cohesivos (Caso et al., 1994; Saturio y Klaenhammer, 2002).
Los colifagos somaticos incluyen una gran variedad de fagos que pertenecen a las familias Myoviridae, Siphoviridae, Podoviridae, Microviridae (Okafor 2011).
