Inhibition of Aspergillus niger growth by m-dinitrobenzene and its reversal by amino acids



Inhibition of Aspergillus niger growth by m-dinitrobenzene and its reversal by amino acids



Proceedings of the Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine. Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine 99(2): 527-530



Growth of A. niger on a glucose-salts medium is prevented when m-dinitrobenzene (2.5 x 10-5 [image]) is added to the culture at any time up to 30 hours' incubation. When [image]-dinitrobenzene is added at any time later some additional growth occurs. The escape from inhibition during the latter period appears to be due to the ability of A. niger to detoxify nitroaryl compounds by reduction to arylamines. [image]-Dinitrobenzene was the most effective of 25 nitro compounds tested and studies with 14 microorganisms indicated that this growth inhibition is apparently limited to molds and is of a static rather than cidal nature. The fungistatic action may be due to depression of energy utilization or of ammonium nitrogen incorporation, and is completely reversible by amino acid mixtures.
