1.  Primary Isolation Of Mycobacterium chelonei Subspecies abscessus from Pus Inoculated into Peptone Broth 
Applied Microbiology  1974;28(6):943-945.
We have described the isolation of Mycobacterium chelonei subspecies abscessus which on two occasions grew out within 4 days in routine cultures after inoculation with purulent material from injection abscesses in a patient with diabetes mellitus. Media isolation and culture characteristics of this organism in comparison to others in the Mycobacterium fortuitum complex are described. Mycobacteria in routine laboratory media can be mistaken for diphtheroids or other “contaminants” or can be overlooked entirely. The possibility of clinical infection of mycobacterial species should be kept in mind when confronted with “sterile” abscesses at injection sites.

2.  Arthrobacter globiformis and Its Bacteriophage in Soil1 
Applied Microbiology  1974;28(6):951-959.
Bacteriophages in soil for Arthrobacter globiformis were rarely detected unless the soil was nutritionally amended and incubated. In amended soil, phage were continuously produced for at least 48 h, and this did not require the addition of host cells. Rod and spheroid stage host cells added to the amended soil encountered indigenous bacteriophage, but added phage did not encounter sensitive indigenous host cells for some time, if at all. The indigenous phage in nonincubated soil seemed to be present in a masked state which was not merely a loose physical adsorption to soil materials but required growth conditions other than lysogeny for them to increase their titers. The possibility is discussed that the indigenous host cells in nonamended soil are present in a nonsensitive spheroid state, with the cells becoming sensitive to the phage in a rate-limiting fashion as nonsynchronous outgrowth occurs for a portion of the spheroid cells.

3.  ELECTROPHORETIC MOBILITY AND AGGLUTINABILITY OF RED BLOOD CELLS: A "NEW" POLYMORPHISM IN MICE 
A quantitative method has been developed to determine agglutinability of mouse red blood cells. Tests with different inbred strains of mice revealed only two phenotypes. The same inbred strains were tested with the cytopherometer to determine the electrophoretic mobility of the corresponding red cells. Again, two phenotypes were uncovered, and faster mobility was found in the red cells that had higher agglutinability. The genetic control of this character is autosomal and codominant, and segregates independently of H-2 and coat color.
