On the basis of morphological, nutritional, physiological and other properties, the characteristics of an “ideal biotype” have been defined, which can be used to distinguish Rps. capsulata from similar purple bacteria. In this connection, two properties of Rps. capsulata are of particular note: a) sensitivity to penicillin G is 103–105 times greater than… CONTINUE READING
