In the laboratory indications of proteolytic activity are usually obtained by the power of the various bacteria to liquefy gelatin, fibrin or coagulated serum, to produce indole or H 2 S, to reduce nitrates to nitrites, and to digest milk and meat. The enzymes responsible for protein-cleavage are termed proteases. The process is usually, in the first stages, a simple hydrolytic cleavage of the complex protein molecule as a result THE BIOLOGY OF BACTERIA 31 of which proteoses, peptones and amino-acids are produced.

The plugs must not be removed and placed on the bench during the seeding of the tube. Such a practice is certain to result in contamination.
