Abstract

SUMMARY: At low concentrations (0·03 to 3 g./10 cells), purified prymnesium toxin lysed penicillin and lysozyme-EDTA spheroplasts of and and protoplasts of and . Intact and were unaffected by the toxin (3·3 g./ml.), but was lysed by prymnesium toxin in the presence of EDTA. The activities of selected detergents against spheroplasts and EDTA-treated were compared with the action of prymnesium toxin.
