Studies of kappa-type phage The host range, serological properties and electron microscope morphology of kappa-type phage which is produced specifically by the Celebes type El Tor vibrio were investigated. Kappa-type phage inducing effects of ultraviolet light and mitomycin C were also examined. Lysogenicity of kappa-type phage in El Tor vibrio appeared to be unstable. A kappa-type phage detection method for rapid diagnosis of Celebes type El Tor vibrio carriers was deviced. Application of fluorescent antibody technique to cholera studies Applicability and limitation of fluorescent antibody technique on diagnosis of cholera vibrio, and cross staining reaction of various vibrios including NAG vibrios and V. parahemolyticus with fluorescent antibody technique were surveyed. Biochemical properties of so-called water vibrios Biochemical properties of 43 strains of water vibrios were studied and compared with those of known vibrio strains.
