Abstract

AN organism similar to E. coli isolated in our laboratory was found to grow in a minimal medium containing glucose and ammonium sulphate in the presence of relatively large concentrations of hydroxylamine (up to 100 µgm./ml. of the hydrochloride—amounts which were highly toxic to other organisms). The amine, which was determined by the method of Csaky1, was found to disappear during growth.
