The thymidylate synthetase gene of B. subtilis bacteriophage Phi 3 T, when cloned in plasmids pSC101 or pMB9, is expressed in E. coli. The promoter of the cloned gene is likely to originate in Phi 3 T. Rearrangements of hybrid plasmid sequences during the cloning have been noted. B. subtilis strains can be transformed with hybrid DNAs. The transformants contain sequences of Phi 3 T, but not those of plasmid vectors.
