Abstract

Summary: Three strains of coagulase-positive staphylococci, grown at temperatures between 35° and 43°, showed no significant change in mass of growth or in yield of α-haemolysin and the Panton-Valentine (PV) leucocidin. Staphylokinase production, however, decreased by 18% (per mg. dry weight) for each degree rise in temperature. The amount of hyaluronidase produced at 37° was five to eight times greater than that produced at 41°.
