Abstract

The extracellular protease, endopeptidase, and hexosaminidase produced by Staphylococcus, simulans biovar staphylolyticus were neither induced nor repressed by amino acids but required a tryptic digest of casein for their production. Catabolite repression of exoenzyme production by glucose was not affected by exogenous cyclic adenosine 3′, 5′-monophosphate but was partially relieved by di- or monobutyryl derivatives of this compound.
