Abstract

SUMMARY: Marcescin, a thermostable polypeptide isolated from a strain of inhibits the growth of at 0.01 μg./ml. and at 0.1 μg./ml. It is produced in good yield in 18–36 hr. at 24° in an aerated ammonium citrate glycerol medium. It was very toxic to mice and in sublethal doses failed to protect mice against sensitive organisms. It is very strongly adsorbed by bacteria so it is not possible to say whether it is bacteriostatic or bactericidal in high concentration.
