Effect of linear gramicidin on sporulation and intracellular ATP pools of Bacillus brevis


When Bacillus brevis ATCC 8185 was subjected to nutritional shiftdown from a rich medium to one completely devoid of a nitrogen source, sporulation could be stimulated by the addition of linear gramicidin. Gramicidin-induced sporulation occurred after a considerably longer lag period than the earlier described tyrocidine-induced process (Ristow and Paulus… (More)
