Abstract

Summary

Lipopolysaccharide was isolated from a strain susceptible to the killing action of bacteriocin 45, from two resistant mutants and from a wild strain, none of which adsorb the bacteriocin. The carbohydrate composition of the lipopolysaccharide of the sensitive organism differs from that of the resistant strains. Neutralization tests and electron microscopy showed that this phage-tail-like bacteriocin only adsorbed to the cell wall or the lipopolysaccharide fraction of the sensitive strain. Adsorption was accompanied by triggering of the bacteriocin particle.
