Abstract

SUMMARY

Production of β-lactamase by 15 strains of has been investigated. All the strains produce a constitutive β-lactamase, which readily hydrolyses penicillin G, ampicillin, and cephaloridine. The β-lactamase produced by these strains is indistinguishable from the type-IIIa enzyme commonly found in strains of . The β-lactamase gene has been transferred from the enzyme-producing strains of to strains of and a strain of .
