Abstract

A bacteriophage that lysed Desulfovibrio salexigens cells was isolated from marine sediments and preliminarily characterized by electron microscopy and electrophoretic analysis of structural proteins and genomic nucleic acid. The bacteriophage had an icosahedral head and a long flexible tail, and the buoyant density of the bacteriophage particles was 1.468 g/ml in cesium chloride. The particles consisted of a double-stranded DNA molecule about 33 kilobase pairs long and at least 11 structural proteins.
