Abstract

Bacteriophage BFK20 was isolated from a strain that had become contaminated during industrial fermentation. BFK20 has a polyhedral head 50 nm wide and a non-contractile tail 200 nm long and 10 nm in diameter. The genome of this bacteriophage consists of a linear double stranded DNA molecule of 44–45 kb with cohesive ends. The capsid of phage BFK20 contains nine polypeptides with molecular masses from 22.0–108.0 kDa. BFK20 DNA was used as a donor for fragments carrying promoters and transcription-terminators.
