Abstract

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus-related infections have become a serious problem worldwide. Bacteriophage therapy is an alternative approach against this threat. S. aureus phage JD007, which belongs to the Myoviridae family according to transmission electron microscopic imaging, could lyse nearly 30% of the S. aureus strains from Ruijin Hospital, Shanghai, China, and was isolated from chicken feces in Shanghai, China. The complete genome showed that JD007 is a linear, double-stranded DNA phage 141,836 bp in length with a GC content of 30.4% encoding 217 open reading frames. A BLAST search of the JD007 genome revealed that it was very similar to that of phage GH15.
