Abstract

Electron microscopy revealed that IncI plasmids determined thick pili as well as the thin flexible ones previously detected. Phage PR4, which typifies the broad host-range, plasmid-specific, lipid-containing bacteriophages, formed plaques on bacterial strains carrying derepressed IncI plasmids, and adsorbed to the tips of the thick pili rather than the thin ones.
