Unformatted text preview: A. generalized transduction host bacterium B. lysogenic conversion phage 3. What is the functional (not structural) difference between an insertion sequence and a transposon? insertion sequence = inverted repeats flanking transposase transposon = insertion sequences flanking a real gene like antibiotic resistance 4. What is the difference in outcome (not mechanism) between phase variation and classical antigenic variation? phase variation - 2 possibilities only: on/off or A/B antigenic variation - numerous possibilities 5. What characteristic must a bacteriophage have to be able to carry out specialized transduction? integrate into host genome...
