Abstract

Surmmary

Tris and EDTA combined to form a homologue which has far greater chelating ability than EDTA alone. The weaker serine and NHCl homo-logues of EDTA replaced EDTA+tris in causing toxicity and permitting lysozyme lysis in Serine could effectively substitute for tris in these systems for These compounds had relatively little effect on The toxicity of EDTA+tris for these organisms could be alleviated by pre-incubation in physiological saline (0–15 M-NaCl). Subsequent lysozyme lysis was prevented by this treatment. The removal of metals from cysts by EDTA+tris was also inhibited. The EDTA+tris+metallo chelate complexes were inactivated (dissociated) by saline.
