Cultures ofStaphylococcus aureus, which are harvested from the stationary phase of growth, are extremely resistant to lysis by extracts of human blood leukocytes. Such bacteria are, however, rendered susceptible to bacteriolysis when cultivated in the presence of subinhibitory concentrations of penicillin G, nafcillin, or cloxacillin (0.05μg/ml). The lytic effect of the leukocyte extracts on the penicillin-grown bacteria is further augmented by the addition of egg-white lysozyme. Staphylococci… Expand
