Abstract

SUMMARY: Three temperate bacteriophages of were isolated from soil samples and analysed, together with all the other known temperate phages of this organism, with respect to their host range, immunity, serology and DNA restriction pattern, and by other tests. The results show that the newly isolated phages are new members of the immunity sub-group I of the group III of temperate bacteriophages. We named these new phages IG1, IG3 and IG4.
