Abstract

Phage ΦM12 is an important transducing phage of the nitrogen-fixing rhizobial bacterium Sinorhizobium meliloti. Here we report the genome, phylogenetic analysis, and proteome of ΦM12, the first report of the genome and proteome of a rhizobium-infecting T4-superfamily phage. The structural genes of ΦM12 are most similar to T4-superfamily phages of cyanobacteria. ΦM12 is the first reported T4-superfamily phage to lack genes encoding class I ribonucleotide reductase (RNR) and exonuclease dexA, and to possess a class II coenzyme B12-dependent RNR. ΦM12's novel collection of genes establishes it as the founder of a new group of T4-superfamily phages, fusing features of cyanophages and phages of enteric bacteria.

Altmetric has tracked 3,634,360 articles across all sources so far. Compared to these this article has done particularly well and is in the 94th percentile: it's in the top 10% of all articles ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,301 articles from this source. They typically receive a little less attention than average, with a mean score of 3.0. This article has done particularly well, scoring higher than 98% of its peers.
Older articles will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this score to the 109,411 tracked articles that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This article has done particularly well, scoring higher than 92% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this article to 27 articles from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This article has done well, scoring higher than 88% of its contemporaries.
