The state of a temperate virus when it is integrated into the host genome.
A lysogenic bacterial virus which is integrated into the host cell DNA.
The genome of a lysogenic bacteriophage when it is integrated into the chromosome of the host bacterium. The prophage is replicated as part of the host chromosome.
A prophage is a bacteriophage (often shortened to `phage`) genome inserted and integrated into the circular bacterial DNA chromosome or existing as an extrachromosomal plasmid. This is a latent form of a phage, in which the viral genes are present in the bacterium without causing disruption of the bacterial cell.
