have the ability to insert themselves into the chromosomal DNA of E.
We use the concept of transporter of malware DNA in the cloaked form and it was inspired in the prophage
Highly variable phage (with the exception of annotated prophage
regions), mobile elements, and intergenic regions were excluded from this portion of the analysis.
The genome possesses 8 to 10 prophages
and nonfunctional phage remnants.
To promote their own survival within bacteria, phages have acquired additional genes not necessary for their lifecycle but provide a selective advantage for the host bacterium when the phage has integrated into the bacterial genome and is now a prophage
. These fitness genes are known as "morons" and make the bacterium more competitive in the intestinal environment.

and phage-like elements," BMC Microbiology, vol.
They are contained in a large prophage
and have confirmed the characterization of isolates in wild ungulates .
report that the IS605 element family has homology at the protein level with orfB (putative transposase gene) ; this gene is present in a Salmonella prophage
and contributes to virulence during bacterial infection .
Unexpectedly, the major differences in gene content and allele diversity were contributed by exogenous, mobile genetic elements, such as prophage
. (38,39) Thus, these genomics data demonstrated that many of the long-recognized differences in strain virulence, disease phenotype, and epidemic behavior of GAS strains from different serotypes are likely due to genes encoded on prophage
, rather than on the core chromosome.
In addition, the fur mutation displayed an increased synthesis of PBSX defective prophage
