Abstract

SUMMARY

Chemostat studies were made of an antibiotic-producing strain (S6), a similar, but antibiotic non-producing strain (S6), and a sensitive indicator strain of sp. (M7). Pure and mixed continuous cultures were investigated at low population levels (in 0.1% peptone water) and at higher levels (in 0.5% peptone water). Strain S6 antagonised the growth of strain M7 when its colony count was maintained above 10 per ml, while strain S6 remained unaffected.
