FT-IR spectroscopic investigation of bacterial cell envelopes from Zymomonas mobilis which have different surface hydrophobicities
Abstract Changes in the cell envelope composition of bacteria Zymomonas mobilis 113S which resulted in varied cell surface hydrophobicity (CSH) were examined using FT-IR-spectroscopy and conventionalExpand
Hydrophobicity of bacteria Zymomonas mobilis under varied environmental conditions
Abstract Changes in the cell surface hydrophobicity (CSH) of bacteria Zymomonas mobilis 113S were examined in response to varied environmental conditions (temperature and phase of growth,Expand
Relationship between the cell surface hydrophobicity and survival of bacteria Zymomonas mobilis after exposures to ethanol, freezing or freeze-drying
TLDR
The results suggest that the CSH could be of value to predict the ability of intact bacteria to endure stress conditions and should be monitored towards lower values during cultivation in order to reduce subsequent unwanted structural and physiological disturbances provoked by multiple stress factors.

Influence of growth conditions on hydrophobicity of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium lactis cells and characteristics by FT-IR spectra
In this study we have found, that the values of cell surface hydrophobicity (CSH) of L. acidophilus LA5 and B. lactis Bb12 cells change in response to varied growth conditions – phase of growth,Expand
The effect of amphiphilic compounds on the secretion of levansucrase by Zymomonas mobilis
Abstract The effect of some aliphatic (n-butanol to n-hexadecanol) and aromatic (benzyl and phenethyl alcohols), anesthetics (procaine) and surfactants (Tween 20 to Tween 80) on the secretion ofExpand
Production of extracellular fructans by Gluconobacter nephelii P1464
TLDR
Obtained at different cultivation conditions characteristics of fructan production, including the biotechnological indices such as the productivity and yield, confirmed, that G. nephelii P1464 could be used as promising strain for commercial production of levan. Expand
Lactobacillus acidophilus La5 and Bifidobacterium lactis Bb12 cell surface hydrophobicity and survival of the cells under adverse environmental conditions
TLDR
The results suggest that the estimates of hydrophobicity, being a generalized characteristic of cell surfaces, are important parameters to predict the ability of intact probiotic bacteria to endure extreme environments and therefore should be monitored during cultivation. Expand
