Abstract

SUMMARY

A new phage-host system is described in which phage α 3a grows on stationary phase mutant strains. Characteristic clear plaques are formed, at an e.o.p. 10 to 10, on already confluent bacterial lawns of the mutant strains. Phage growth is sensitive to aeration and growth only occurs under micro-aerophilic conditions. Lysates prepared on the mutant strains cannot transduce in contrast to transducing lysates prepared from wild type strains.
