  • Stab cultures specifically require the inoculation needle and is used to study cell motility, microbial oxygen requirements using Thioglycolate cultures, and the gelatin liquefaction of bacteria. (wikipedia.org)
  • Chemical
  • In enzymology, a S-carboxymethylcysteine synthase (EC is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction 3-chloro-L-alanine + thioglycolate ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } S-carboxymethyl-L-cysteine + chloride Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are 3-chloro-L-alanine and thioglycolate, whereas its two products are S-carboxymethyl-L-cysteine and chloride.

  • reaction
  • The optimal growth temperature range was around 28 to 40 °C, but good growth is still observed at 45 °C, while no growth is observed at 15 °C. S. hominis can be differentiated from staphylococci by its colony morphology and pigmentation patterns, predominant tetrad cell arrangement, poor growth in thioglycolate, low tolerance of NaCl, and carbohydrate reaction pattern.
