The lysogenization of Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO by phage D3 results in derivatives which are resistant to superinfection by phage D3c by virtue of the fact that homologous phage cannot adsorb to these cells. The serologically and morphologically unrelated phage E79 showed a markedly decreased adsorption rate to the lysogen PAO(D3). Since both of these phages are lipopolysaccharide specific, these results suggested lysogenic conversion of the phage receptor. The lipopolysaccharide was extracted… CONTINUE READING
