The phage enzymes can lyse the host in which they resides, but it is not yet known whether they show any effect on the non-susceptible hosts on solid media (Consortia). It is observed during our studies that the consortial lawn on the solid medium shows clear plaques irrespective of their specificity to the inoculated phages. The consortial studies indicate the combined application of phage enzymes for controlling pathogenic organisms. Our experiment thus proves the non-specificity of phage enzymes towards host cell components and states that the activity of phage enzymes is totally substrate (cell wall components) specific and is independent of host type.
