Abstract

Summary

A strain of isolated from an infected wound showed firmly linked resistance to penicillin and kanamycin. Variants sensitive to both these antibiotics were produced spontaneously and at a high frequency during storage for a few days at ambient temperature.

Both sensitive and resistant variants produced a highly coloured diffusible pigment.
