Bacillus brevis strain Nagano and its gramicidin S-negative mutant, BI-7, were compared with respect to germination of their spores produced in several media. Germination initiation occurred in the presence of nutrient broth orL-alanine but not with inosine, glucose, glycerol or fructose; the process was activated by heat. Parental and mutant spores behaved similarly in these experiments. During outgrowth, parental spores remained in this phase of germination much longer than did mutant spores… CONTINUE READING
