Abstract

SUMMARY: In S-1, -galactosamine and -rhamnose comprised a phage receptor for phage J-1. A mixture of -galactosamine and -rhamnose effectively inactivated phage J-1, and a J-1-resistant mutant strain, S-1/J-1, lacked -galactosamine in its surface component. The phage-inactivating effects of -galactosamine and -rhamnose were strongly dependent on the concentration of each substance and on temperature.

It is suggested that the receptor for phage J-1 involves both -galactosamine in the cytoplasmic membrane and -rhamnose in the wall of the host bacterium s-1, which lacks teichoic acid in its wall.
