Abstract

SUMMARY: A study of the inactivation of coliphage T3 by its bacterial receptors indicates that the resistance of the phage is variable and conforms to a log normal distribution. Receptor activity can be conveniently assayed using probits to obtain a linear relation between phage survival and receptor concentration. This method is sufficiently sensitive to distinguish between the reactivity of receptors prepared from different bacterial hosts.
