- ... Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P. aeruginosa) infection has imposed a great threat to patients with cystic fibrosis. With the emergence of multidrug-resistant P. aeruginosa, developing an alternative anti-microbial strategy is indispensable and more urgent than ever. In this study, a lytic P. aeruginosa phage was isolated from the sewage of a hospital, and one protein was predicted as the depolymerase-li ...

- ... Lytic Enterococcus faecalis bacteriophage IME-EF3 was isolated from hospital sewage, and its genome was sequenced using high-throughput sequencing. Genomic analysis and electron microscopy suggested that IME-EF3 was a member of the family Siphoviridae. The phage has an isometric head and a long non-contractile tail with a 41 kb linear double-stranded DNA genome. The genome encodes 69 putative prot ...
