Abstract

The effect of amino acids on the ‘in vitro’ growth of M. tuberculosis (H37Rv)in a synthetic medium has been studied. As single sources of nitrogen the 1 in 100 level of the amino acid was found to be the best for producing maximum growth. The influence of the amino acid in supporting growth could be classified as follows with decreasing order of merit.
