Culture and growth conditions

culture medium

18281TOLI AGAR Kan4yesIngredients: Agar (Difco) 1.5% CaCl2 0.1% Cycloheximide 2.5 mg per 100 ml Preparation / Remarks: pH 7.2 (KOH) autoclaved w-agar with 2.5 mg of cycloheximide per 100 ml, the antibiotic is filter sterilized and added to the agar just before pouring Cycloheximide does not seem to affect growth of myxobakteria, whereas fungi and amoebae are often inhibited. Combine with 250 mg/L Kanamycin-sulfate (sterilized by filtration) Pour the plates and streak autoclaved E.coli cells
