Studies on Bacterial Nutrition: V. The Effect of Plant Tissue upon the Growth of Anaerobic Bacilli
Description:
Over the early 1920s, several researchers in Avery's laboratory at Rockefeller Hospital turned their attention to certain bacteria, such as Bacillus influenzae, which had previously only been grown in media containing blood or blood derivatives. Because of this, the bacteria were termed "hemophilic." In this final article resulting from a long series of studies on bacterial nutrition that Avery conducted, first with Thjotta and then Hugh Morgan, the scientists found that the presence of unheated plant tissue in the media resulted in the growth of certain anaerobic bacteria under aerobic conditions, likely as a result of the presence of growth-related substances and oxidizing-reducing systems in the plant tissue that destroyed toxic peroxides produced by the bacteria.
