Brachmann 2 Lysogenic Cycle No progeny phage particles are produced Prophage: The phage DNA when it is inserted into bacterial chromosome (red in figure above) A phage DNA molecule is transmitted to each bacterial progeny cell upon normal cell division Lysogen : surviving bacterial cell that is resistant to subsequent phage infection prophage can be induced into the lytic cycle (irradiation) H&J 7.22

The recipient becomes leu+ but doesn’t die from a phage infection. Why doesn’t it die?

They tried infecting sheep with E. coli O157:H7, but two days later they couldn’t isolate the bacterium from the sheep. A student realized that the protection could come from a phage in the animal’s intestine. Isolated CEV-1, a bacteriophage.
