Sporolactobacilli

  • Vijay K. Sharma

Abstract

Bacterial forms sharing characteristics between bacilli (aerobic, spore forming, motile) and lactobacilli (micro-aerophilic, non-sporulating, mainly non-motile) have received considerable attention and bacteria on the borderline of these have been described (Kitahara & Suzuki, 1963; Davis, 1964; Gemmell & Hodgkiss, 1964; Nonomura et al., 1965; Nakayama & Yanoshi, 1967a,b).
