Abstract

Summary

Lincomycin has a differential effect on exoprotein production by . The production of some proteins, such as cholera toxin and deoxyribonuclease, is stimulated by low concentrations of the drug while production of other proteins, such as protease and alkaline phosphatase, is unaffected. Possible mechanisms of the lincomycin effect are discussed.
