Abstract : This study is a continuation of work on properties of pigment-protein complexes in purple bacteria. The organism under investigation is Chromatium, strain D. Owing to the fact that our culture obviously contained an admixture, we have looked into methods for reisolating Chromatium from our culture. Isolation was successful by applying high concentrations of diphenylamine (DPA) in the culture medium, in which Chromatium appeared to develop much better than the admixture. Experiments performed with our reisolated Chromatium were compared with those obtained with other cultures, all listed Chromatium, strain D. (Author)
