Abstract

Growth of in Stainer & Scholte medium in which the NaCl had been replaced by one of several inorganic or organic salts resulted in a large decrease in adenylate cyclase activity, histamine-sensitizing activity and in the amounts of two cell-envelope polypeptides of 28000 and 30000. Although some variation between strains was observed, there was never a case where one of these properties was lost independently of the others. Cultures in which these properties were lost had decreased amounts of extracellular cAMP when compared to NaCl-grown cultures. Adenylate cyclase activity was detected in three locations of cultures (extracellular, extracytoplasmic but cell-associated, and cytoplasmic). After growth in medium containing high concentrations of MgSO, enzyme activity was decreased to a similar extent in all three locations.
