"Pseudolysogenization" by RNA phage Q beta.


We isolated fairly stable lysogenic-like bacteria from a lysogenic state established between an amber mutant for the maturation protein gene of RNA phage Q beta (Q beta am 205) and its nonpermissive host BE110. These bacteria contained few mature phages intracellularly (less than 10(-3) plaque forming unit per cell), continued to grow with a potentiality to… (More)
