Abstract

Toxin production in types C and D is governed by specific bacterio-phages. Prior passages of a phage controlling type C toxin production caused subsequently lysogenized bacteria to become variably toxigenic. This appears to be one of the causes of the decrease in toxigenicity which is common in some type C and D strains. The morphology of bacteria was also changed from rod-shaped to filamentous by infection with a successively propagated phage.
