The phenotypic properties conferred to Yersinia pseudotuberculosis cells by the genetical determinants of a 25Md fragment of the plasmid pVM82 coding for the modified cellular immune response in the infected organism. The fragment was shown to determine the conjugative properties of the plasmid, the resistance of bacterial cells to a number of hydrophobic agents and cellular ability to absorb the Congo red dye. The latter confirms the presence of additional structural components in the cell wall of the strain harbouring the plasmid pVM82. The increased resistance of the plasmid-containing strain to bactericidal effect of the blood plasma was demonstrated as compared with the resistance of the strains harbouring the p57 plasmid lacking the 25Md fragment or no plasmid at all.
