Abstract

Summary

Seven temperate coliphages recovered from naturally occurring lysogenic strains of were found to lyse C but not K12. Four of these C-specific phages produced mutants () able to grow on K cells. The K cells harbouring HK253 and HK183 were converted so that they could adsorb and be lysed by three other nonmutant C-specific phages. HK253, HK183 and two other phages were shown to recombine with phage lambda.
