The DNA base composition and other characteristics of 54 bacterial cultures isolated from refrigerated foods, human clinical specimens, and other sources, designated asP. putrefaciens by one or more investigators were determined. On the basis of % G + C content and ability to grow in 6.0% NaCl two species were clearly distinguished. The first, consists of 37 isolates all but one incapable of growth in 6.0% NaCl. The DNA composition of these isolates falls within the range of 47.8 to 50.8% G + C… CONTINUE READING
