The DNA complement of bacteriophage lambda is infective if certain conditions of bacteria and "helper" phage are satisfied (Kaiser & Hogness, 1960). However, after infection of sensitive bacteria by lambda phage, most of the injected DNA appears to lose its infectivity, at least as measured under these conditions. Little infective DNA can be recovered from the infected cell until mature phage appear or just prior to this time (Dove & Weigle, personal communication).
