Abstract

SUMMARY: grows best at temperatures about 32°. Growth occurs at 37° only on certain media. The organism is more susceptible at 37° than at 32° to the inhibitory effects of oleic acid added to a simple defined medium. This appears to explain the failure of more complex media to support growth at the higher temperature.
