Nutrient Requirements

Post by klapausius » Tue Oct 05, 2010 1:32 pm

I plated a colony of S.aureus on a minimal salt agar (l.0g NH4H2P04, 0.5 g K2HPO4, 5.0g NaCl, and 0.2g MgSO4.7H20, pH 7.0) + 0.5% glucose; AND saw no growth on the plate, however using the same minimal agar + 0.5% lactose i was able to grow s.aureus.

from this result, i concluded that s.aureus was not able to utilize glucose. is this true, that s.aureus cannot utilize glucose as a carbon source?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
