Bacteriophage Mu targets the trinucleotide sequence CGG

Academic Article


  • Target specificity for bacteriophage Mu was studied using a new phage derivative that enabled cloning of Mu-host junctions from phage DNA. Insertions distributed throughout the chromosome showed no orientation bias with respect to transcription or replication polarity. Genes with a high frequency of the triplet CGG were preferred targets. Copyright © 2005, American Society for Microbiology. All Rights Reserved.
