Abstract

Thirty strains of were exposed to mitomycin C to induce lysogenic bacteriophages. Lysis curves typical for lysogenic strains were obtained with 19 strains. Indicator strains were found for 17 of these phages. Five were characterized by electron microscopy, lytic spectrum, molecular masses of the proteins, sequencing of five N-terminal amino acids of the two major proteins and DNA analysis (restriction patterns, cross hybridization). The results revealed a very close relationship between the phages. Hybridization experiments between the DNAs of the temperate phages and the appropriate lysogenic strains revealed phage-related sequences in the DNA of the lysogenic strain.
