Abstract

SUMMARY: Fimbriae were seen with the electron microscope on each of 79 strains of when these were in the haemagglutinating phase, but were absent from the non-haemagglutinating phase. All strains were variably fimbriate. The fimbriate mutant became dominant under anaerobic or relatively anaerobic cultural conditions. The non-fimbriate mutant became dominant under aerobic conditions. The properties of Proteus fimbriae are compared with those of and The fimbriation change is correlated with other mutations in Proteus strains.
