Abstract

SUMMARY: Four strains of avirulent for mice were found to be capable of acting as gene acceptors in transduction experiments. An attempt was made to transduce virulence to three strains, using a typical mouse-virulent strain of as donor. Two of the strains which are adenine-dependent were successfully made virulent by transduction and simultaneously became adenine-independent. The other strain M206, whilst possessing the typical antigenic structure of and being non-exacting nutritionally, was not made virulent by transduction.
