Abstract

SUMMARY The capillary tube method is found to be better than the hanging drop method for examining the motility of cultures of Clostridia in different media.In the capillary tube, and moved away from air and oxygen gas-phases at the meniscus. Reasons for the failure to show this negative aerotaxis in C. are discussed. The motility of C. was activated by -arginine.
