Abstract

Bacteriophage JBP901, isolated from fermented food, is specific for Bacillus cereus group species and exhibits a broad host spectrum among a large number of B. cereus isolates. Genome sequence analysis revealed a linear 159,492-bp genome with overall G+C content of 39.7 mol%, and 201 ORFs. The presence of a putative methylase, the large number of tRNAs, and the large number of nucleotide-metabolism- and replication-related genes in JBP901 reflects its broad lytic capacity. Most of the ORFs showed a high degree of similarity to Bcp1, Bc431v3 and BCP78, and various comparative genomics analyses also consistently clustered JBP901 with orphan (unclassified) Bacillus phages in the subfamily Spounavirinae of the family Myoviridae, supporting the presence of a distinguishable group in the subfamily.
