Abstract

SUMMARY

Growth of intact plaques of dextran-forming strain -1 was linear both on a dry weight and DNA basis. Growth of broth cultures of dextran-forming strains -1 and -49 was linear with sucrose but exponential with other sugars; non dextran-forming strains 44 and 8 grew exponentially with all sugars tested. When dextranase was added to slowly growing cultures of dextran-forming strains -1 and -49, growth became rapid. Linear growth of strains -1 and -49 with sucrose is ascribable to extracellular dextran synthesized by the organisms.
