The preservation of gonococci in liquid nitrogen

, : The preservation of gonococci in liquid nitrogen. Journal of Clinical Pathology 24(2): 122-123

Gonococci suspended in 1% proteose peptone containing 8% glycerol can be snap frozen in liquid nitrogen without detectable loss on thawing. This recovery rate has allowed the use of frozen organisms as the starting inoculum for the bulk growth of gonococci and to preserve gonococci both in urethral pus and after primary subculture for use in studies on gonococcal virulence. The method described for freezing urethral pus on charcoal swabs should make it possible to transport infected specimens from areas lacking adequate laboratory facilities.

Ruminococcus albus 7 has played a key role in the development of the concept of interspecies hydrogen transfer. The rumen bacterium ferments glucose to 1.3 acetate, 0.7 ethanol, 2 CO2, and 2.6 H2 when growing in batch culture and to 2 acetate, 2 C...

Antiproliferative bioassay-guided fractionation of the ethanol extract of the stems of Anisocycla grandidieri led to the isolation of the known alkaloids stebisimine (1), (+)-1,2-dehydrotelobine (2), (+)-2'-norcocsuline (3) and puetogaline B...

Translocations involving the MLL gene on the chromosome 11 (11q23) are frequently observed in acute leukaemia. The detection of this genetic change has a unique significance as a result of its implication of poor prognosis. To reveal the utility o...

Two versatile shuttle vectors for Thermus thermophilus and Escherichia coli were developed on the basis of the T. thermophilus cryptic plasmid pTT8 and E. coli vector pUC13. These shuttle vectors, pTRK1T and pTRH1T, carry a gene encoding a protein...
