Abstract

SUMMARY:

The vitamin requirements of 63 strains of and 18 of were examined. and responded in most cases to thiamine, biotin, and calcium pantothenate. Strains of and the slow-growing rhizobia sometimes responded to biotin, but not to the other vitamins. An unknown growth factor, active for the slow-growing rhizobia, was detected. Three strains of required thiamine.
