INHIBITORY ACTION OF PHAGE K ON STAPHYLOCOCCAL DEHYDROGENASES II

In tests of a given cell preparation, the dehydrogenase levels of the phage-sensitized fractions were found to be close to, or even lower than, the level of the spontaneously sensitized fraction, suggesting that in S. aureus K1 the sensitized state is associated in some manner with a reduction of the dehydrogensase activity to a critical level.

Bacteriophage T4-Mediated Release of Envelope Components from Escherichia coli

The main conclusion derived from the data is that phage, as part of the process of adsorption and injection of DNA, cause an increased release of envelope substance from the cells.

Cation Fluxes and Permeability Changes Accompanying Bacteriophage Infection of Escherichia coli

Leakage was caused by heavily irradiated phage as well as by normal phage; therefore, the intracellular functioning of the bacteriophage DNA was not required and was supported by experiments which showed phage-induced leakage in the presence of chloramphenicol or sodium cyanide.

Enlargement of Escherichia coli After Bacteriophage Infection II. Proposed Mechanism

The findings suggest that the effect on host cell size is only in part an osmotic phenomenon and that it also reflects continued growth of the surface of the infected cell in the absence of cell division.

LYSIS FROM WITHOUT OF S. AUREUS K1 BY THE COMBINED ACTION OF PHAGE AND VIROLYSIN

Evidence is presented that neither phage nor lysin alone causes LFW and that sensitization by phage prevents virus synthesis.

Bacteriophage T4 Inhibits Colicin E2-Induced Degradation of Escherichia coli Deoxyribonucleic Acid II. Inhibition by T4 Ghosts and by T4 in the Absence of Protein Synthesis

This report deals exclusively with the inhibition of E2 produced by T4, or T4 ghosts, in the absence of protein synthesis, and finds that the fractional inhibition, [i], where y(i) and y(o) represent the inhibited and uninhibited rates of solubilization of DNA, respectively, produced by a given T4 multiplicity is independent of the multiplicity of E 2.

Studien über die Adsorption und Injektion von durch Protamin inaktivierten T5-Phagen

It may be concluded, that protamine inhibits the penetration of DNA into the host cell, probably by altering the tail enzyme of the phage.
