|Title:||Adsorption of bacteriophage PBS 1|
|Authors:||Wilson, Jeffrey James|
|Abstract:||<p>The adsorption of Bacillus subtilis bacteriophage PBS 1 was studied by electron microscopy. It was demonstrated that the site of final adsorption and DNA injection is the flagellar base. A multistage process of adsorption is proposed. It was also shown that primary adsorption is not species-specific as PBS 1 adsorbed to the flagella of various PBS 1-resistant Bacilli. The role of motility in adsorption is discussed.</p>|
