Phi11, a temperate bacteriophage of Staphylococcus aureus, has been found to harbor a cro repressor gene which facilitates Phi11 to adopt the lytic mode of development. The Cro protein has been found to bind very specifically to a 15-bp operator DNA, located in the Phi11 cI-cro intergenic region. To investigate the effects exerted by different ions upon the interaction between Cro and its cognate operator DNA, we have employed gel shift assays as well as circular dichroism spectral analysis…
