The Oxidation-Reduction Potential Requirements of a Non-Spore-Forming, Obligate Anaerobe.

The specification of the reducing conditions which determine the growth of obligate anaerobes has been the object of many investigations. Early observers stressed the maximum oxygen pressure under which the organisms would grow (Clark, 1924; McLeod, 1931) as well as the enhancement of growth by the addition of reducing substances to the medium (Quastel and… CONTINUE READING
