Virulent Cronobacter sakazakii bacteriophage ES2 was isolated from swine fecal samples, and the genome sequence by was determined GS-Flx. Bacteriophage ES2 had a double-stranded DNA genome with a length of 22,162 bp and a G+C content of 50. 08%. The morphological characteristics under a transmission electron microscope indicated that bacteriophage ES2 belongs to the family Myoviridae. The structural proteins, including the phage coat protein, were separated by SDS-PAGE and identified by Q-TOF. Bioinformatics analysis of the bacteriophage genome revealed 30 putative open reading frames (ORFs). The predicted protein products of the ORFs were determined and described. To our knowledge, the genome of the newly isolated bacteriophage ES2 was not significantly similar to that of any previously reported bacteriophages of members of the family Enterobacteriaceae.
