Abstract

A novel Siphoviridae family Phage BS5, which infects Pseudoalteromonas atlantica, was isolated from the surface waters of the Yellow Sea. Morphological study by transmission electron microscopy revealed that the novel phage belongs to Siphoviridae. The complete genome sequence of PBS5 contained a linear, double-strand 39949-bp DNA molecule with a G + C content of 40.6% and 65 putative open reading frames. Twelve conserved domains were detected by BLASTP in NCBI, and of these the functions of 5 were known. The genome was grouped into four modules as follows: phage structure, phage packaging, DNA replication and regulation, and some additional functions.16 S rDNA sequence analysis was also applied to identify the host bacteria. After initial characterization of bacteriophage PBS5, it was found that the optimal pH was 7.0, the optimal temperature was 30 °C, and the burst size was about 95 virions per cell. This information will provide an important benchmark for further research on the interaction between bacteriophages and their hosts.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 21 April 2017.
All research outputs
#7,502,134
of 9,719,571 outputs
Outputs from Current Microbiology
#569
of 861 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#187,298
of 261,403 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Current Microbiology
#18
of 28 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 9,719,571 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 12th percentile – i.e., 12% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 861 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.1. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 261,403 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 16th percentile – i.e., 16% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 28 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 21st percentile – i.e., 21% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
