Quantitation of bacillus subtilis L-form growth parameters in batch culture.

Abstract

Several methods were used to monitor the growth of a stable L-form in batch culture. The end of the exponential growth phase was determined with greatest accuracy by the amounts of deoxyribonucleic acid per milliliter of culture. Optical density and viable count data were not as reliable because the L-forms began to lyse at the end of exponential growth… (More)
