Abstract

A total of 112 strains representing protein I serogroups WI, WII, and Will and six auxotypes were tested for their ability to reduce nitrite. All strains reduced 0.001% (wt/vol) potassium nitrite (KNO) within 24 h and 0.01% (wt/vol) KNO within 48 h. None of the strains reduced 0.1% (wt/vol) KNO even after incubation at 37°C for 5 days, and the strains could not be cultured from these tests after incubation for 24 h. Thus, all of the . strains tested were nitrite sensitive but were able to reduce subtoxic concentrations of KNO. Nitrite reduction is a species characteristic for .
