A protocol for the combined biochemical and serological identification of the Ames mutagen tester strains as Salmonella typhimurium.


Previously published reports have noted biochemical reactions atypical of Salmonella among the Ames tester strains of Salmonella typhimurium, and an inability to assign the strains to a specific Salmonella O (heat-stable cell wall) antigen group. We studied the biochemistry and serology of strains TA97, 98, 100, 102, 104, 1535, 1537, and 1538 in an attempt… (More)
