  • Mutants of Asticcacaulis biprosthecum lacking the ability to attach to various surfaces were selected by serial transfer in liquid media containing cheesecloth, to which wild-type cells attach but holdfast mutants do not. Congo red, incorporated into solid media, distinguishes between colonies of wild-type cells and those of holdfast mutants. Holdfast mutants were characterized and compared to wild-type cells according to their ability to swim, to attach to each other or to wild-type cells, for… CONTINUE READING
