Value 50 bp/sec
Organism Bacteriophage T7
Reference García LR, Molineux IJ. Rate of translocation of bacteriophage T7 DNA across the membranes of Escherichia coli.J Bacteriol. 1995 Jul177(14):4066-76. p.4074 right column 3rd paragraphPubMed ID7608081
Method (abstract) Translocation of bacteriophage T7 DNA from the capsid into the cell has been assayed by measuring the time after infection that each GATC site on the phage genome is methylated by cells containing high levels of DNA adenine methylase
Comments For a mutant that lacks bp 393 to 808 of T7 DNA.
