Example text

Bacteriophages of Vibrio Cholerae Viruses that attack bacteria, bacteriophages, have been identi- fied for Vibrio cholerae. These bacteriophages (or phages, for short) are either temperate or virulent. Temperate phages can integrate their genetic material into a bacterial host. When this integration occurs, the host bacterium has obtained new DNA from the infecting virus that can be passed down during multiplication. This process is called lysogeny, and the temperate phage is said to be lysogenic.

Temperate phages can integrate their genetic material into a bacterial host. When this integration occurs, the host bacterium has obtained new DNA from the infecting virus that can be passed down during multiplication. This process is called lysogeny, and the temperate phage is said to be lysogenic. Virulent phages do not integrate their genetic material into the host bacteria they attack. Usually, virulent phages kill their host cells by causing them to lyse, or burst. This is called a lytic infection.
