Effects of chitin and its soluble derivatives on survival of Vibrio cholerae O1 at low temperature.

Abstract

Chitin concentrations greater than 0.04% (wt/wt) protected cholera vibrios against killing at low temperature. This protective effect was detected with both the soluble form of chitin, glycol chitin, and the insoluble particulate form of chitin. Some amino acids or peptides also showed the same protective effect.
