Abstract

SUMMARY: The growth requirements of a strain of were studied by auxunographic and tube tests. The organism grows satisfactorily on a glucose + mineral salts medium containing asparagine and ammonium sulphate, provided also that inositol, pantothenic acid, nicotinic acid, biotin, histidine, methionine and adenine are added. Complex interactions between adenine and guanine were found, and for this reason cannot be regarded as a suitable test organism for the assay of adenine.
