Abstract

SUMMARY: Bacteria possessing active amino-acid decarboxylases, isolated from horse-stomach and sheep-rumen contents, were classified within the genus . One strain, studied in detail, was a homolactic fermenter, the lactic acid formed being optically inactive; lactose was not fermented. Of twenty-six named strains belonging to eight species of the genus, only two possessed amino-acid decarboxylases, namely, one strain of and one strain of .
