Unlike other gram-negative enteric bacteria, Vibrio cholerae cells were equally susceptible to penicillin and ampicillin and in general more susceptible than Escherichia coli to most of the beta-lactam antibiotics. The turbidity of penicillin-treated cultures contained to increase exponentially for about 3 h, although the cell viability declined rapidly within 30 min of penicillin addition. Prolonged treatment with beta-lactam antibiotics produced cells resistant to these antibiotics. A… CONTINUE READING
