Abstract

SUMMARY

The concentration/growth rate relationship of thiamine-requiring was examined. Data suggest a diffusion-limited mechanism characterized by an apparent Michaelis constant for growth of 4·7 × 10 . This relationship was obtained from continuous culture at steady state and tested by a non-steady state procedure and in batch growth. It was concluded that most natural water systems have sufficient thiamine to support some thiamine-requiring micro-organisms at above rate limiting concentrations.
