Effect of prebiotics on lyzosymic activity of the Bacillus genus bacteria

М. А. Saveka, О. А. Vasylchenko

Abstract


The influence of prebiotic lactulose on the Bacillus subtilis 39 and Bacillus subtilis 51 lyzosymic activity were analyzed. The dependence of the growth inhibition zones extension on lactulose quantity introduced into cultural medium was displayed.

Keywords
