  • The organism used in all the experiments was a stock strain of Sh. sonnei which had been kept in the laboratory by repeated subculture for some years. It was morphologically unstable and in any plating an appreciable number of rough variants could be seen. A single smooth colony was cultured on Dorset egg medium at the beginning of the work and all subsequent cultures were made from this stock culture.
