Abstract

The host range of the virulent bacteriophage Cog among several strains of amino acid-producing corynebacteria is limited to LP-6. Cog is a typical corynephage of the family (B1 morphotype) with an isometric head of 52 nm and a medium length, striated tail of 190 nm. It has a linear genome of 39·7 kb with cohesive ends and 53% G+C; a restriction map is presented, including regions of DNA homology (by hybridization) with the inducible phage particle 𝜙GA1 .
