...ignificantly reduced the plaques count as compared with the control negative (P<0.05) in all the tested modes of action. The current experiment revealed that the alcoholic extracts of N. sativa (50 µg/ml) could increase the viability of infected cells, and curtail the cytopathic effects of PPRV. N. sativa seed extracts should be explored in field conditions for the control of PPR.

circular single plaques, without halo of 3 mm in diameter. Electron microscopy of
Salmonella bacteriophage particles (St-1) indicated that the phage particle has an
isometric head of about 69.6 nm in diameter and non contractile tail of 243.5 nm in
length and 17.4 nm in width. The Salmonella bacteriophage (St-1) has a narrow
host range since, it was infectious to Salmonella typhimrium ATCC25566 and S.

... as group V showed clear plaques and were able to infect many of Rhizobium species and strains. The other group of phages was less virulent and showed turbid plaques implied as group L. This was also determined by one-step growth experiment. It was found that rhizobiophage (V) group had the attachment and latent period after 30 min and burst size of 28. On the other hand, rhizobiophages (L) group had the attachment and laten...

The formation of plaques (clear zone) on the lawn of Pseudomonas spp confirmed lytic action. The bacteriophage showed plaques on Pseudomonas sp. isolated from other sites also. The isolation of Pseudomonas aeruginosaphages from residential wastewaters is a promising molecular tool in combating the global antimicrobial resistance threat.

...e 0.33. The formation of plaques (clear zones of inhibition) on the lawn of the plates of Escherichia coli was confirmed. The isolation of Escherichia coli phages from residential and farm wastewaters is a promising molecular tool for E. coli tracking in the environment.
