Abstract: We have determined the sequence of a 827 bp region comprising gene 26 of bacteriophage T4. The coding region consists of 624 bp directing the synthesis of a polypeptide 208 amino acid residues long, with a calculated molecular mass of 23.9 kDa. The upstream sequence contains the consensus sequence for T4 late promoter.
