Future animal health applications for bacteriophages
Gene products used as antibiotics alternatives show potential in fight against antimicrobial resistance.
Bacteriophages reproduce by utilizing the host cell’s machinery to replicate viral proteins and genomic material — this kills the bacteria in the process. Understanding the molecular processes of their life cycle, particularly the cell lysis steps, has led to the isolation of viral proteins. With the continued drive to reduce…
