Abstract

Summary

Strains of and produce metabolites which inhibit their own growth and that of other members of the group, but not that of , Providence or . These metabolites are dialysable, volatile and inactivated by ether and by chloroform. They are active in solid media for a long time after excretion. These properties are like those of the negative chemotaxic metabolites that have been held responsible for the swarming of proteus organisms. These metabolites do not influence parallelstreak tests for syntrophism between auxotrophs of .
