Abstract

Summary: A strain of has been isolated which requires glucose specifically for optimal spore germination. Cyanide, fluoride, iodoacetate, citrate, oxalate, azide, and 2:4-dinitrophenol were ineffective as inhibitors of germination in glucose, while 8-hydroxyquinoline inhibited completely at 10 m. The inhibitory effect of glucose on sporulation of the organism in liquid and solid media is described.
