I'm confused and hope someone here might be able to enlighten me. I just read in some
medical microbiology book that penicillins and thereby Ampicillin are bacteriocides.
This overthrows my whole view on things like the appearance of satellite colonies -
how do they show up if not by releaved growth inhibition through Ampicillin by means
of beta-lactamase secreted by Amp+ neighbours?
Thanks for any thoughts, Joh
