Abstract:

The decline of virulence of B. anthracis, which occurs from the effect of residence in colloid sacs in an animal organism, is accompanied with deep processes of dissociation and with the appearance of various adaptation forms. These adaptation forms are expressed in the differentiation of the chromatin substance into larger complexes that disengage in the form of round and oval corpuscles with sizes of 0.8-1.5 microns. These corpuscles give a positive reaction to the Fuelgen and Rosenbeck thymonucleic test and are stained to a strawberry or red color according to Giemsa.
