Abstract

Summary: We have discovered different host specificities in the z 20 and cf2004-6 strains of a particular O4 serotype. The host specificities are controlled by a chromosomal locus linked to threonine. They are differentiated on the basis of results from plating efficiencies of phage ⊘,04, conjugation, and generalized transduction. The host specificities of strains k12 and cf2004-6 seem to be similar and distinct from that of z20.
