functional analysis of the lysis genes of staphylococcus aureus phage p68 in escherichia coli.double-stranded dna phages of both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria typically use a holin-endolysin system to achieve lysis of their host. in this study, the lysis genes of staphylococcus aureus phage p68 were characterized. p68 gene lys16 was shown to encode a cell-wall-degrading enzyme, which causes cell lysis when externally added to clinical isolates of s. aureus. another gene, hol15, was identified embedded in the -1 reading frame at the 3' end of lys16. the deduced hol15 protein ha ...200516000723
