Degradation of Citrobacter O-Serogroup Ci23Vi+ murein with Vi phages.

Abstract

Dialysable products resulting from the digestion of the Citrobacter O-Serogroup Ci23Vi+ murein with Vi phages show a decrease of their reducing power/muropeptides. It is accompanied with an increase of free amino groups amount/muropeptide when compared to the one obtained after the lysozyme treatment. It leads to a suggestion, that Vi phage particles possess two enzyme activities: "lysozyme-like" and deacetylase which might be a transacetylase.
