Abstract

SUMMARY

A bacteriophage containing DNA and which is active on CV6 has been shown to attach to the flagellum of the motile cell type. Attachment to the flagellum appears to be a necessary preliminary step to irreversible attachment to the cell wall at the base of the flagellum. The possible use of such a phage in the study of cellular differentiation in this diphasic bacterium is suggested.
