Unfortunately I have not kept my collection of coli-acrogenes[?] cultures and so am afraid that I will not be able to respond
to your request for cultures. Some years ago I had a rather large collection of them, but did not keep it going after I got
immersed in the vitamin requirements of other groups.
The only coli cultures we have are one or two strains maintained just for teaching purposes with the beginning class. They
do not ferment cellobiose.
Sorry that I can not be of any real assistance.
With best wishes to you and your very interesting work. I am yours very truly
