Abstract

Five temperate phages were isolated from strain 4042B of subsp. The phages, which were heteroimmune, could also be distinguished by their host ranges, plaque and particle morphologies, serological specificities, and locations of restriction endonuclease cleavage sites on their chromosomes. Besides maintaining a stable lysogenic relationship with the 4042B host strain, each phage formed a stable lysogen with
