General description

Tryptone is a general-purpose growth peptone produced by the digestion of casein with the protease trypsin and used as a nitrogen source in culture media formulated for isolating and cultivating fastidious and non-fastidious bacteria, fungi, and some protozoa. It is a refined hydrolysate with high solubility and is used as a microbiological nutrient in laboratory media and fermentations. It is a high-quality source of amino acids and peptides produced by the pancreatic digestion of casein.


Tryptone is recommended for laboratory media and fermentation and has been used in antibiotics, toxins, and enzyme productions. It is also used as a nutrient in vaccine production where a high free amino acid content is required. Tryptone may also be used in STGG (skim milk, tryptone, glucose, glycerol) medium at -80°C, which is used to preserve Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, and Moraxella catarrhalis isolates for at least 3 years.

The availability of rumen-degradable protein (RDP) changes the use of carbohydrates by ruminal microbes. However, the effects of RDP on the simultaneous use of carbohydrate and formation of microbial products are not well described, although such information is needed to

Using an active approach to preventing biofilm formation, we implemented a microfluidic bioreactor that enables long-term culture and monitoring of extremely small populations of bacteria with single-cell resolution. We used this device to observe the dynamics of Escherichia coli carrying

This study was undertaken to find optimum conditions of tryptone, yeast extract, glucose, Tween 80, and incubation temperature for the growth of Lactobacillus casei YIT 9018 and to assess the effects of these factors by use of response surface methodology.

Fructans are an important nonfiber carbohydrate in cool season grasses. Their fermentation by ruminal microbes is not well described, though such information is needed to understand their nutritional value to ruminants. Our objective was to compare kinetics and product formation
