Minimum nutritional requirements for mucinase synthesis by Vibrio cholerae

Minimum nutritional requirements for mucinase synthesis by Vibrio cholerae

Texas Reports on Biology and Medicine 18: 612-619

It has been established that high titer mucinase can be produced by V. cholerae in an aerated, fluid chemically-defined medium. However, the requirements for mucinase synthesis are more complex than those for growth. Although a sucrose-ammonium-mineral salts medium supports good growth of V. cholerae, little or no mucinase is produced unless this medium is supplemented with casein hydrolysate or with certain amino acids, particularly the aromatic ones.
