Abstract

Summary

  • 1.  The effects of metabolic inhibitors on the survival and growth of , DKB strain, with 3 different associate bacterial floras have been studied and evaluated.
  • 2.  Inhibitors active against enzymes containing sulfhydryl groups, as iodoacetic acid and sodium arsenite, are effective in inhibiting the survival and growth of .
  • 3.  Inhibitors active against phosphorylation, such as sodium arsenate are effective in inhibiting the survival and growth of .
  • 4.  Glycolytic inhibitors including iodoacetic acid and sodium arsenate are effective against the survival and growth of . Their inhibitory effects on the amebae are most likely direct. Sodium fluoride, another glycolytic inhibitor seems not to be effective against the survival and growth of the amebae.
  • 5.  Inhibitors active against the enzymes of Krebs tricarboxylic acid cycle, such as potassium cyanide, sodium azide, and sodium fluoroacetate are not effective against the survival and growth of .
