Abstract : Mutability of the plague microbe (EV strain) was established as a result of the influence on it of sera against enteric bacteria. A characteristic for the plague microbe, subjected to the influence of the stated sera, was the acquiring of features, inherent to the causative agent of rodent pseudotuberculosis. The observed mutation of the plague microbe was not accompanied by changes in the DNA nucleotide composition.
