Abstract

SUMMARY

Methods are described for the growth of in submerged culture. In experiments with intact organisms D-galactose was oxidized by an inducible enzyme system; D-fucose was a poor inducer of this system. Mutants isolated by their failure to grow on galactose as sole carbon source were defective in the oxidation of galactose.
