Studies on Bacterial Nutrition: II. Growth Accessory Substances in the Cultivation of Hemophilic 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 second article resulting from a long series of studies on bacterial nutrition that Avery conducted with Thjotta and Hugh Morgan, the scientists found that certain nutritional deficiencies in the cultivation of some "so-called" hemophilic bacteria may be overcome by the substitution of particular growth-accessory substances, in lieu of blood, to the culture media. The series on bacterial nutrition began with an article written by Thjotta in late 1920.
