Abstract

A unique phage taillike particle from Clostridium saccharoperbutylacetonicum ATCC13564 has been studied by electron microscopy using negative staining. It was observed in the lysate of phage HM 3 and in the mitomycin C-induced lysate with an inducible phage taillike bacteriocin, clostocin O. It was striated rod 28 nm in diameter and 450 nm in length, ending in three helical or wavy fibers (230 × 12 nm) which ended in special structures like suckers or funnels. Its contracted sheath was estimated to be 350 nm in length and 32 nm in width.
