Control of Gene Transcription in T-even Bacteriophages: Alterations in RNA Polymerase accompanying Phage Infection

Abstract

The RNA polymerase in E. coli cells infected with T4 phage is not identical with that in uninfected E. coli. A T4 phage protein is probably required to modify the host polymerase.
