  3. Other strains of Bacillus bacteria that phage are known to infect include B.

  4. Singletons are phage that have no significant nucleotide similarity to others.

  5. One group of gene that is highly variable between Bacillus phage are tRNA genes.

  7. Brown wanted to adopt existing knowledge about phage therapies and use them in the United States.

  8. Clusters are groups of related genomes with the 12 clusters showing at least 50% homology between phage.

  9. The DNA polymerase of Bacillus phage phi29 is a unique and efficient polymerase with proofreading activity.

  10. More than 1,455 bacillus phage have been discovered from many different environments and areas around the world.

  11. A Bacillus phage is a member of a group of bacteriophages known to have bacteria in the genus Bacillus as host species.

  12. The role of phage tRNAs largely depend on their bacterial host, hence the number could widely differ depending on the specific strain of bacteria.

  13. Félix d'Herelle's isolation of bacteriophage during World War I initiated a long line of research focused on phage viruses and the bacteria they infect.

  14. The total sequence length ranges from 7,826 (in phage pMC8) to 509,170 bp (in phage pHS181) with the GC content of these phage being an average of 38.25%.

  15. The recent and escalating problems caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria has stimulated a renewed interest in the use of bacteriophages and phage therapy.

  16. The most conserved genes within the Bacillus phage include those that encode tail proteins and other structural proteins, holin, and a site-specific recombinase.

  17. Viral enzymes aid in the breakdown of the cell membrane, and, in the case of the T4 phage, in just over twenty minutes after injection over three hundred phages could be released.

  18. The host range of some bacteriophages is limited to a single strain of bacteria and they can be used to trace the source of outbreaks of infections by a method called phage typing.

  19. In nature, these enzymes protect bacteria against phage infection by digesting the phage DNA when it enters the bacterial cell, acting as part of the restriction modification system.

  20. DNA's role in heredity was confirmed in 1952 when Alfred Hershey and Martha Chase in the Hershey–Chase experiment showed that DNA is the genetic material of the enterobacteria phage T2.

  21. In phage T4, the increase in mutation observed after PUVA treatment was found to reflect translesion synthesis by wild-type DNA polymerase, likely due to imperfect proof reading capability.

  22. Upon exposure to vesicles containing receptors, transduction of pBT163 (a cat-encoding plasmid) occurs, resulting in the expression of the SPP1 receptor protein, opening the receptive bacteria to future phage infection.
