The nutritional requirements for 439 Campylobacter jejuni isolates and 46 Campylobacter coli isolates were determined by using a previously described chemically defined medium, campylobacter defined medium. With this medium, 45% of both human and nonhuman C. jejuni isolates demonstrated auxotrophic requirements. None of the 46 C. coli isolates studied demonstrated requirements for amino acids on campylobacter defined medium. The most common auxotrophic requirement among C. jejuni isolates was… CONTINUE READING
