Summary It has been shown that S. aureus grown in the presence of subinhibitory concentrations of nafcillin produced a disturbance or disorganization of the cell wall fabric resulting in a marked accumulation of a polysaccharide within the cell. An appreciable polysaccharide response was also found for oxacillin, methicillin and erythromycin. This conclusion is based on data which demonstrate a clear differentiation between such an inhibitor of bacterial wall synthesis as penicillin which… Expand
