The nucleotide sequence of the lysozyme (e) gene of bacteriophage T4 and approximately 130 additional nucleotides on each side has been determined. The 5'-end of the gene for internal protein III appears to be located about 70 base-pairs from the 3'-end of the lysozyme gene. Nucleotide sequence analysis of mutant e genes confirmed that three identified hotspots of frameshift mutations are runs of five A nucleotides in the wild-type gene. The endpoints of two deletions are direct repeats of eight base-pairs in the wild-type gene. Two frameshift mutations with high reversion frequencies are duplications of five or seven base-pairs. The cloning and nucleotide sequence determination of the lysozyme gene will facilitate further study of the molecular biology of T4 lysozyme.
