Abstract

SUMMARY: Sex incompatible (F −) strains of have a lower acid agglutination point, a stronger affinity for a basic dye and a greater stability in broth cultures as compared with F + strains of corresponding phenotype. These findings indicate a correlation between some surface properties and sex compatibility. These surface properties and the F + state are transmitted infectively from F + to F − strains at the same time. Screening for cultural behaviour of infected strains yields results fully consistent with screening for sex compatibility.
