Nucleotide sequence of the lysozyme gene of bacteriophage T4. Analysis of mutations involving repeated sequences.


The nucleotide sequence of the lysozyme (e) gene of bacteriophage T4 and approximately 130 additional nucleotides on each side has been determined. The 5'-end of the gene for internal protein III appears to be located about 70 base-pairs from the 3'-end of the lysozyme gene. Nucleotide sequence analysis of mutant e genes confirmed that three identified hotspots of frameshift mutations are runs of five A nucleotides in the wild-type gene. The endpoints of two deletions are direct repeats of eight base-pairs in the wild-type gene. Two frameshift mutations with high reversion frequencies are duplications of five or seven base-pairs. The cloning and nucleotide sequence determination of the lysozyme gene will facilitate further study of the molecular biology of T4 lysozyme.
