UNSPECIFIED (1994) POPULATION-DYNAMICS OF PHAGE-HOST INTERACTIONS AND PHAGE CONVERSION OF STREPTOMYCETES IN SOIL. FEMS MICROBIOLOGY ECOLOGY, 14 (1). pp. 25-32. ISSN 0168-6496Full text not available from this repository.
The fate of Streptomyces lividans lysogens was studied in sterile and nonsterile soil microcosms. It was found that in sterile soil lysogens grew as well as the parental strain. However, in nonsterile soil, numbers of the lysogen decreased rapidly, indicating a decreased fitness when compared to the original organism. In addition, the release of this phage from a lysogen and its subsequent infection and lysogenisation of a recipient strain was demonstrated in sterile soil.
