In vitro stimulation ofBacteroides fragilis growth byEscherichia coli

Abstract

The interaction betweenBacteroides fragilis andEscherichia coli was investigated by following their growth kinetics in an in vitro mixed culture system. In Bacto-peptone or in a semisynthetic medium (SSM-M)Bacteroides fragilis could initiate growth only when a small number of viableEscherichia coli initially coexisted for a short period of time. Both Bacto… (More)
