Abstract

The strongest of five ‘early’ promoters of phage SPP1 was localized in a DNA restriction fragment by analysis of RNA polymerase binding and R-loop formation. The nucleotide sequence of the promoter region was established. The signal structures identified were similar to those recognized by the RNA polymerase of . . The promoter precedes an open reading frame with 51 codons. A protein with the predicted from the nucleotide sequence was identified in minicells.
