Abstract

SUMMARY: A highly radioresistant bacterium was isolated from the faeces of a giant panda (). When the organism was subjected to gamma irradiation in phosphate buffer, the induction dose and D values were 846 and 345 krad, respectively, for cells grown on PCNZ agar, and 700 and 460 krad, respectively, for the enlarged cells grown on 5 % (v/v) horse blood brain heart infusion agar. The D value of the former cells was about 1·8 times higher than that of grown on PCNZ agar.
