Abstract

SUMMARY

Biochemical tests were made on several strains representing each of the twelve known serotypes of . The use of the fermentation reactions with arabinose and trehalose to distinguish the A and T biotypes was found to be more reliable for T than for A strains, since some strains of biotype A in all serotypes, except serotype 11, failed to ferment arabinose within 14 days. Mannose and salicin were fermented by strains of biotype T, but by only 1 (mannose) or 2 (salicin) out of 30 strains in biotype A. Lactose and xylose were fermented by A strains only. All strains reduced nitrate and gave negative reactions in the methyl-red and Voges-Proskauer tests.
