Abstract

Summary: Glutamine is not required for staphylococcal growth, and was found to be synthesized by staphylococci from NH and glutamic acid in the presence of glucose. The amount of glutamine found was, however, much less than that of the NH reacting. Similar relationships were found in and was, however, outstanding in possessing a powerful glutaminase which could easily be separated from the cells; in this it differed markedly from Glutaminase activity was also demonstrated in yeasts, where its occurrence has been previously a matter of dispute.
