Abstract

A temperate bacteriophage named which forms plaques on F- strains but not on F+strains of k 12 has been isolated. This phage adsorbs equally well to F+ and F-strains, which indicates that some later step of the growth cycle is inhibited by the presence of the sex-factor The frequency of lysogenization of the phage is also affected by the factor. The genetic material of phage may be DNA. The phage is 40–50 mμ in diameter.
