Thermo Scientific™ Hippurate Broth (3mL)
Hippurate Broth is used to determine the ability of an organism to hydrolyze sodium hippurate.
Manufacturer: Thermo Scientific™ RE061152
Determine the ability of an organism to hydrolyze sodium hippurate by enzymatic action using Thermo Scientific™ Remel™ Hippurate Broth. Heart muscle infusion and animal tissue peptone supply the variety of nutrients required for the growth of the majority of bacterial species. Sodium chloride maintains osmotic equilibrium. In 1922, Ayers and Rupp used an enriched medium containing hippuric acid to investigate the ability of bovine and human β-hemolytic streptococci to split hippuric acid into benzoic acid and glycine1. In 1951, Leuthardt described hippuricase, the enzyme responsible for the hydrolysis of hippurate2.
