AIMS In order to investigate the mechanism of bacterial resistance to surfactants, a spontaneous mutant of Escherichia coli, OW66, resistant to a cationic surfactant cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB), was isolated and its physiological properties analysed. METHODS AND RESULTS Strain OW66 grew in M9 medium containing CTAB at 45 micromol l(-1), whereas its parent strain, OW6, did not, even at 15 micromol l(-1). The mutant was also resistant to some other surfactants, antibiotics, heavy… CONTINUE READING
