Cell size, macromolecular composition, carbohydrate utilization patterns, and O2 concentrations were measured throughout the growth stages of Naegleria gruberi in agitated culture in a complex medium. Biphasic logarithmic growth occurred during the intial 83 hr of growth and the mean generation time was 7.0 hr and 19 hr during initial and secondary log growth stages, respectively. The maximum yield was 5 X 10(6) amebae/ml. The pH rose rapidly (1 pH unit) during the secondary log growth phase… CONTINUE READING
