Culture Age and Extrinsic Factors Affect Formation of T 4 Bacteriophage Infective Centers in Stationary Phase Escherichia coli ZK 126

Abstract

Studies of Escherichia coli performed using fresh or log phase cultures may not accurately represent the stationary phase characteristics of such cells in nature. The interaction between E. coli host cells and T4 bacteriophage is known to change in stationary phase. This study uses a standard plaque assay to observe the effects of E. coli ZK126 culture age… (More)
