Figure 2

Lysogenic 8325-SR (black bars) and non-lysogenic JH978 (grey bars) strains were exposed for 24 h to a phage lysate obtained from 8325-4 SaPI at MOI=0.1 (a) or 1 (b) after which the total number of bacteria, transductants and phages were determined by plating without (bacteria) and with antibiotic selection (transductants) or by spotting for phage titers (phage). Error bars=s.d., n=3. ***P<0.001 (t-test).
