A comparison has been made of total exoprotein formation by Staphylococcus aureus (Wood 46) in a tryptone soya broth (TSB) medium and a casein hydrolysate-yeast extract-containing (CCY) medium in which exponential growth occurred with doubling times of 3.0 and 1.3 h, respectively. It was found that the differential rate of exoprotein formation was biphasic in each case, increasing after the cessation of exponential growth by a factor of 4 in TSB and 7 in CCY medium. Although this relative… CONTINUE READING
