Abstract

SUMMARY

A chloroform-soluble, extracellular product of was obtained from sloppy-agar cultures. Pyrogallol 1-monomethyl ether, 1-methoxyphenazine, 1-hydroxyphenazine and pyocyanin were chemically synthesised and also tested for an inhibitory effect on mitochondrial respiration. It was found that the substance and 1-hydroxyphenazine inhibited the uptake of oxygen by mouse liver mitochondria utilising sodium succinate.

In a infection this substance would be released into the bloodstream, accumulate in the liver and cause cytolysis, thus contributing to the complex mechanism of pathogenicity.
