Abstract

Mutations in the Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium ompC gene conferred resistance to Gifsy-1 and Gifsy-2 bacteriophages. Selection for complementing plasmids yielded clones of ompC. Introduction of an ompC clone into Escherichia coli conferred the ability to adsorb Gifsy phage. These data show that OmpC is the receptor for Gifsy-1 and Gifsy-2 phages.
