Enterobacter cloacae, like most enteric bacteria, can grow in the presence of 10% sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS). The bacteria tolerate the detergent and do not metabolize it. In a defined glucose-salts medium the growth rate remained unchanged (G = 55 min) as the detergent concentration was increased from 0 to 10% SDS. However, growth in SDS exhibited a(More)
Our work on bacterial detergent resistance started with the realization that bacteria growing in a sink full of soap must be resistant to the detergents in that soap. We chose sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS) as a model detergent and decided to see how much SDS the bacterium growing in the sink could tolerate. The research program thus initiated has shown that(More)
The enteric bacterium Enterobacter cloacae was grown both aerobically and anaerobically in the presence of up to 1% of the anionic detergent sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS). A continuous energy supply was necessary to maintain cell integrity and cells grown in SDS (0.1-1%) lysed during carbon-limited stationary phase. The respiratory inhibitor KCN (3 mM)(More)
