Studies on the factors affecting the haemolysin production of Vibrio mimicus isolated from clinical and environmental sources.

The in vitro production of haemolysin by Vibrio mimicus, a newly described aetiological agent for human diarrhoea, was determined using sheep erythrocytes. The effects of medium composition and sodium chloride concentration on haemolysin production and its heat stability were investigated. The haemolysin was produced optimally in brain-heart infusion broth… CONTINUE READING
