Abstract

The dependence on salt concentration of steady-state total and irreversible adsorption of T2r phage on isolated bacterial cell walls was studied. Solutions of NaCl, KCl and MgSO4 of different molarity were used and a difference between the total and the irreversible adsorption at lower concentration of NaCl and KCl, but not in MgSO4 solutions, was found. The effect of KCl on total adsorption was similar to that of MgSO4 in which case the adsorption begins at lower molar concentrations than with NaCl.
