For the past five years we have been engaged in an investigation of the effect of cobalt on the growth and metabolism of bacteria, especially of Proteus vulgaris. The emphasis on Proteus followed requests for aid in the control of growth of this penicillinand sulfa-resistant organism in cases of peritonitis, cystitis, and eye infections. Interest in cobalt as a growth inhibitor of microorganisms has been extremely limited. Such studies as have been made deal primarily with the concentrations of… 
GROWTH INHIBITORY ACTION OF COPPER FOR MYCOBACTERIUM PHLEI

TLDR
Investigation of differences in the minimal medium routinely used for M. phlei revealed that citrate ion would function in the same manner as an a-amino acid, and more interestingly, that the omission of cupric ion from the trace element solution would permit growth in the usual medium without further additions.
CHARACTERISTICS OF A COBALT TOLERANT CULTURE OF SACCHAROMYCES CEREVISIAE
The literature on the metabolism of cobalt by microoiganisms includes studies on the toxicity to fungi and yeasts (Bokorny, 1912; Perlman, 1948) as well as reports on the absorption of this element
EFFECT OF METALLIC IONS ON THE GROWTH, MORPHOLOGY, AND METABOLISM OF CLOSTRIDIUM PERFRINGENS
TLDR
Cobalt plays an incompletely understood rule in cellular metabolism and some studies have been performed which suggest the mode of action of Co++.
The uptake of cobalt by Proteus vulgaris.
TLDR
Proteus vulgaris, suspended in meat extract broth or in a defined medium, bound cobalt to an extent dependent on the cell concentration and on the concentration of cobalt in the medium, indicating that resistance to cobalt cannot be explained merely on the basis of the cobalt-concentrating ability of the cells.
The effect of ferrous ions on the formation of toxin and porphyrin by a strain of Corynebacterium diphtheriae.

TLDR
Cobaltous ion (Co++), at concentrations only slightly inhibiting growth, caused a marked inhibition of toxin formation and the combined toxin-inhibitory effect of Fe++ Co++ was considerably less than the sum of their independent effects.
Invasion of plant tissue by bacteria under in vitro conditions.
TLDR
The possibility that bacterial contamination could account for the auxin synthesis ascribed to plant tissues in recent reports was dismissed, and surface sterilization procedures were employed and were followed by a thorough washing of the tissue.
The inhibition of microorganisms by heavy metals
This paper examines the effects of heavy metals on microorganisms in the aqueous environment; the mechanisms by which metals may exert toxic effects on microbes and the factors affecting microbial
Effect of growth rate on α-amylase production by Streptomyces sp. IMD 2679
TLDR
The pattern and levels of α-glucosidase (the enzyme degrading maltose) detected intracellularly in each case, indicate that growth rate effectively controls the rate of feeding of glucose to the cell, and thus catabolite repression.
