Abstract

A complete nucleotide sequence of the new Pseudomonas aeruginosa Luz24likevirus phiCHU was obtained. This virus was shown to have a unique host range whereby it grew poorly on the standard laboratory strain PAO1, but infected 26 of 46 clinical isolates screened, and strains harboring IncP2 plasmid pMG53. It was demonstrated that phiCHU has single strand interruptions in its genome. Analysis of the phiCHU genome also suggested that recombination event(s) participated in the evolution of the leftmost portion of the genome, presumably encoding early genes.
