Abstract

Abstract In an attempt to establish a biochemical and biological tool of multiple potential, we have sought to define the absolute and limited nutritional requirements of Caenorhabditis briggsae. The following has thus far been done: (1) a chemically defined basal medium has been obtained, which sustains life and partial growth but not reproduction, (2) certain biological supplements, which enable the organism to reproduce, have been comparatively evaluated, (3) unexplained freeze-activation of one such supplement has been observed, and (4) through the use of analogues, preliminary suggestions have been derived regarding the action of certain metabolites.
