Endospores of Streptomyces streptomycini B-16 are considerably more thermostable (by 40degreesC) than it was generally accepted. The bulk of populations of the spores (up to 55%) can be subjected to 100degreesC during 10 min but does not germinate under usual conditions as a result of heat damage which may be repaired at a relative humidity of 100% or in water suspensions at temperatures optimal for growth of the actinomycete. The rate of reparation increase upon washing of the heated spores… CONTINUE READING
