Abstract

SUMMARY

A bacteriophage which infects and lyses 19213 was isolated from the soil. The phage produces lysis on nine strains of tested but did not lyse a or strain, nor any of eight strains tested. Physical characteristics of the phage including morphology, size, thermal and pH stability, and buoyant density were examined. The nucleic acid is a double-stranded DNA of mol. wt. 41.7 × 10 and 36 to 38.5 mol percent guanine plus cytosine (G + C).
