    Abstract

    A stable L-form of Aeromonas salmonicida, which resulted from induction with benzylpenicillin, grew on brain heart infusion agar at 0-5°C. The L-form was stored successfully for 10 months in phosphate-buffered saline supplemented with 150 gl-1 glycerol at -70°C. Reversion of the L-form to parental-type walled cells was achieved by transfer to brain heart infusion broth with incubation at 25°C.
