Abstract

SE-3 is a virulent bacteriophage isolated from a large-scale culture of , an erythromycin producer. The host range of the phage is narrow, limited to some strains of this species. Another strain of , and a strain of , are able to adsorb phage particles but do not sustain their complete multiplication. SE-3 is closely related to the phage SE-5 as shown by DNA restriction mapping. The differences between SE-3 and SE-5 genomes are apparently limited to two DNA segments flanked by short inverted repeats, visualized by electron microscopy.
