Summary: The results of a physiological study of the interaction between NHCl, inosine, and the stereoisomers of alanine during germination of spores of T are presented. Detailed kinetics for the germination of unheated spores in moderate concentrations of L-alanine (in the absence of auto-inhibition due to alanine racemase) are established, as is the specificity of the stimulatory effect of NHCl in relation to other salts, amines, and germinants. The results suggest that NHCl and inosine affect an early step in germination closely related to the function of an L-alanine receptor.
