The penetration of T3 bacteriophages that are attached to the host cells may be delayed or entirely prevented by antiserum against T3 phage. The antiserum-sensitive period of the attached phages reases at lower temperatures. The degree of inhibition increases with antiserum concentration and with early exposure to anti serum. Bacteriophages T1 and T4 are not affected by antiserum in this manner T7 reacts similarly to T3.
