Bacteriophage lambda l

Bacteriophage lambda (l)

Transcriptional switches can regulate cellular decisions


Bacteriophage lambda l

Lysis or Lysogeny

  • Lysis: Infection by phage produces many progeny and breaks open (lyses) the host bacterium

  • Lysogeny: After infection, the phage DNA integrates into the host genome and resides there passively

    • No progeny

    • No lysis of the host

    • Can subsequently lyse (lysogeny)

  • Bacteriophage lambda can do either.

Repressor structure

Repressor structure

l repressor is a dimer; monomer has 236 amino acids.

l repressor can bind cooperatively

to operator sub-sites.
