The aim of this study was twofold: first, to characterize the free extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) and bound EPS produced by Escherichia coli during different growth phases in different media, and then to investigate the role of the free EPS in promoting aggregation. EPS was extracted from a population of E. coli MG1655 cells grown in different media composition (Luria-Bertani (LB) and Luria-Bertani with the addition of 0.5 w/v% glucose at the beginning of the growth phase (LBG)) and… CONTINUE READING
