Figure 3

(a) Effect of calcium ions on adsorption rate of phage and VREF. (b) Effect of magnesium ions on adsorption rate of phage and VREF. Divalent metal ions had positive effect on the binding of phage to bacterial cell surface receptors as evident by decreased number of free phages in comparison to controls.
