Abstract

SUMMARY: Protein synthesis by both laboratory-grown bacteria and isolated nodule bacteroids of (strain wu8) is inhibited by d--chloramphenicol, the bacteroid form being the more sensitive to the antibiotic. A comparison between the two forms of the uptake of [C]chloramphenicol showed that the bacteria always attained a lower intracellular chloramphenicol concentration. It is proposed that the sensitivity difference is due to a difference in membrane permeability between the two forms.
