PRODUCTION OF FILTERABLE PARTICLES BY CELLVIBRIO GILVUS

By J. D. Tuckett and W. E. C. Moore

Abstract

Reports of viable filterable particles in bacte-rial cultures have often been attributed to artifacts from the media, contaminants, and, in the case of filtration experiments, to laboratory errors (Frobisher, 1928). Since Kleineberger's (1935) observations on L forms, they have re-ceived considerable attention, but their signifi-cance and function remain obscure. It has been suggested that they are part of a complex life cycle serving reproductive or genetic recombina-tion functions (Klieneberger-Nobel, 1951b). It has been hypothesized that the L forms are aberrant cells or involution forms (Heilman, 1941). The failure of many filtration experiments t
