Abstract

The culture of Streptomyces hygroscopicus JA 6599 producing antibiotic turimycin was found to be lysogenic. Four variants produced from this culture by the inducing with acridine orange did not synthesize the antibiotic but were also lysogenic. Temperate phages isolated from the parent culture and from its four variants were identical by their main biological properties. Therefore, production of turimycin is not controlled by the isolated temperate phage.

Bacteriophage: Phage Therapy

Phage therapy uses bacterial viruses (bacteriophages) to treat bacterial infections and is widely being recognized as an alternative to antibiotics. Here is the latest research.
