Abstract

Growth of was markedly inhibited by novobiocin and bacitracin A but unaffected by sodium-penicillin G, vancomycin or -cycloserine. The antibiotic activity of these latter three compounds, however, decreased appreciably on incubation with the growth medium alone over a period comparable with that of the doubling time for this bacterium.
