Abstract

SUMMARY

The properties of a new brucella phage isolated from culture fluids of and designated the Weybridge phage, were examined. The phage was lytic for smooth and cultures but there was no lysis of or strains. The host range, adsorption pattern, chemical stability and particle morphology were similar to those reported for brucella phages M51 and S708. However, phage neutralization tests established that Weybridge phage was serologically distinct from M51 and S708 although the three phages possessed antigenic determinants in common with each other and with the Tbilisi reference phage. One-step growth experiments of Weybridge phage on and are described. No evidence of lysogeny was found although the origins of the phage were suggestive of this.
