Abstract

Summary: Biochemical reactions of 153 Providence (29911 type) and 63 Proteus cultures were examined. Providence cultures are included in the genus , as their cultural characters are similar; this relationship is strengthened by the production of -amino acid oxidase and glutamic acid decarboxylase by both. Ornstein nov.comb. is the name proposed for Providence cultures.
