We present the nucleotide sequences of two genes whose products are required for bacteriophage N4 adsorption. The nfrA gene encodes a 122-kDa outer membrane protein which presumably serves as the phage receptor. The nfrB gene encodes an 85-kDa inner membrane protein and may be a component of the receptor.
