The colonial morphology of some strains of Pseudomonas pseudomallei was correlated with certain biochemical and physiological traits. After 3 days of growth on Wahba or heart infusion agars, smooth-colony strains generated toxic amounts of ammonia. Under the same conditions, the rough strains simultaneously produced oxalic acid which decreased the inhibitory concentration of ammonia. The ammonia-ammonium concentrations in smooth cultures exhibited certain bacteriocin-like characteristics. An… CONTINUE READING
