Prophage F116: Evidence for Extrachromosomal Location in Pseudomonas aeruginosa Strain PAO


F116 is a temperate-generalized transducing phage of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Genetic evidence leads to the conclusion that F116 prophage DNA is maintained extrachromosomally as a plasmid. Preliminary physical evidence is presented to support this hypothesis.
