Abstract

An operon expressed late in the lytic cycle of the Streptomyces temperate phage phi C31 was shown to be transcribed from an inducible promoter, phi 1p (phage late promoter), which resembled the previously reported early promoters. mRNAs initiated at phi 1p were processed at the 3' end (and possibly also the 5' end) of a tRNA(Thr)-like sequence, resulting in leaderless polycistronic mRNAs.
