Abstract

Motility in WU163 was dependent on the pH of the medium; addition of EDTA or treatment of the medium with a chelating resin was also required. Motility was improved by the addition of Ca but not by Mg; both Zn and Cu abolished motility at low concentrations. Chemotaxis was demonstrated to -arabinose, -ribose, -xylose, -glucose, -fructose, mannitol, sorbitol, dulcitol, lactose and cellobiose. The organisms were not chemotactic to either sucrose or trehalose under the conditions used.
