The EITor typing phage D10 was characterized. The adsorption kinetics of the phage on MAK757 strain were biphasic in nature. Intracellular growth was characterized by an eclipse period, latent period and burst size which were 20 min, 25 min and 80 particles per cell respectively. The phage yield was dependent on the concentration and time of addition of DNA synthesis inhibitors such as nalidixic acid and novobiocin, and RNA synthesis inhibitors such as rifampicin. The 32 ± 0.2 kb linear double-stranded DNA molecule has unique termini. A restriction map of the phage DNA was constructed with the enzymes HI, dIII and I.
