Streptococcus lactis ME2 is a dairy starter strain that is insensitive to a variety of phage, including phi18. The efficiency of plating of phi18 on ME2 and N1 could be increased from <1 x 10 to 5.0 x 10 and from 7.6 x 10 to 2.1 x 10, respectively, when the host strains were subcultured at 40 degrees C before plating the phage and the phage assay plates… CONTINUE READING
