Abstract

SUMMARY: The sensitivity to various antibiotics of certain facultatively anaerobic bacteria when growing under aerobic or anaerobic conditions was compared. The antibiotics tested were: dihydrostreptomycin, penicillin, chloramphenicol, erythromycin, carbomycin, chlortetracycline, oxytetracycline, tetracycline. Dihydrostreptomycin was unique amongst the antibiotics tested in being less active against facultative anaerobes when they were growing anaerobically than when growing aerobically. Dihydrostreptomycin was relatively inactive against and , and its action was governed by the inoculum size. Dihydrostreptomycin is not a useful selective agent for the isolation of .
