Abstract

SUMMARY

Bacteriophages were isolated from twelve lysogenic strains of . Based on sensitivity data and antiserum neutralization tests, the phage isolates were divided into two distinct but related groups. All twelve phage changed the colonial morphology of from mucoid to matt. Possible phage-mediated effects on virulence are discussed.
