Abstract

An Aeromonas punctata bacteriophage, named as DH1, was isolated from East Lake, Wuhan city, China. Morphologically, phage DH1 showed a typical Myoviridae structure consisting of an isometric head (50 nm in diameter) and a visible tail. The bacteriophage had a latent period of about 90 minutes and an average burst size of about 125 PFU•Cell-1. Restriction enzyme pattern of the bacteriophage’s genome showed that the genome is a double-stranded DNA and about 34kb in size. The sequenced genomic fragments showed highly similarities to gp04 and gp16 sequence of other Myoviridae bacteriophages at protein level.

Keywords: Myoviridae, bacteriophage, Aeromonas punctata.
