Abstract

Summary: A mutant of 168 was isolated which resists infection by all the group III temperate bacteriophages except SPR, while allowing full infection by phages of the other groups (I, II and IV). The mutation conferring this phenotype, , shows 52–54% PBS1-mediated cotransduction with the marker, mapping therefore in the and region of the chromosome. Nevertheless, it does not affect the infection by phages sensitive to mutations.
