Abstract

SUMMARY: The level of free glutamic acid accumulating within cells of certain Gram-positive cocci is lower in growing cells than in ‘resting’ cells, other conditions being equal. Part of the glutamic acid assimilated by growing is condensed into peptides or proteins, thus accounting for this apparent drop in glutamic acid accumulation. Sulphathiazole interferes with this condensation of glutamic acid into peptide form.
