Defined minimal growth medium for Acanthamoeba polyphaga.


Nutritional requirements of Acanthamoeba polyphaga (strain PD) were compared to those reported for A. castellanii. Although A. polyphaga and A. castellanii have essentially the same minimal amino acid requirements--arginine, methionine, leucine, isoleucine, and valine--A. polyphaga cannot utilize acetate as sole carbon source, but A. castellanii can if the medium is supplemented with glycine.
