The initial, chloramphenicol-sensitive phase in the transduction ofSalmonella typhimurium

  • J. HubáČek
  • I. Málek


It was found that a cell which accepts a transductive fragment of phage deoxyribonucleic acid divides without the appearance of cells with phenotypically expressed new marker. The initial phase after the adsorption of phage to the cell, before the first division of the potentially transduced cell, is dependent on proteosynthesis or on some other chloramphenicol-sensitive process which takes place in bacteria in the resting state. The basic mechanisms of the transduction process are discussed.
