Conditions influencing formation of 16:0/16:0 molecular species in membrane phospholipids of Escherichia coli.

Abstract

Growth of a beta-oxidation-negative (fadE) strain of Escherichia coli in liquid culture with exogenous palmitate leads to the accumulation of 16:0/16:0 molecular species of phospholipid resulting in a temporary decrease in growth rate and lysis of a variable fraction of the cell population. Under the same growth conditions, this behavior is not seen in the… (More)
