Abstract

Summary

Incubation of bacteriophage φX174 with isolated bacterial cell walls in tris HCl. MgCl solution results in disruption of the phage with partial release of virus DNA. After incubation for 5 min., particles which sedimented heterogeneously at about 50 were formed. These particles were infectious for spheroplasts, but not for whole bacteria. Incubation for 40 min. produced 70 particles which contained less DNA than intact phage. Similar results were obtained when φX174 virus particles were incubated with starved bacteria.
