Iron in Neisseria meningitidis: minimum requirements, effects of limitation, and characteristics of uptake.

Abstract

A simple defined medium (neisseria defined medium) was devised that does not require iron extraction to produce iron-limited growth of Neisseria meningitidis (SDIC). Comparison of this medium to Mueller-Hinton broth and agar showed nearly identical growth rates and yields. The defined medium was used in batch cultures to determine the disappearance of iron… (More)
