Abstract

SUMMARY: It has been shown that when the Gram-positive micro-organisms and were grown under conditions in which their cellular lipid was increased a corresponding increase in their resistance to the penicillins benzylpenicillin, cloxacillin, methicillin and quinacillin was produced. Likewise cell-wall lipid depletion caused a corresponding increase in sensitivity.
