  author={S. Abdulkarim and A. B. Fatimah and John G. Anderson},
  journal={Journal of Food Agriculture \& Environment},
The effect sodium chloride (NaCl) and potassium chloride (KCl) concentration on the growth of Escherichia coli cells cultivated at 37 and 44°C was studied in an effort to understand the importance of the salts and glucose in medium to the growth of E. coli. A turbidimetric method was used to measure the growth of E. coli after a 24 hours incubation period. The turbidimetric method used gave a high correlation (R2 = 0.9606) with the traditional surface colony count method. Four sets of salt… Expand

Survival and growth rate of coastal water Escherichia coli isolates in different salt concentrations
It is suggested that salinity at point of isolation can influence salt tolerance, but the use of E. coli as pollution indicator for Lagos Lagoon is affirmed since they exhibited considerable halo-tolerance and survived salt concentrations up to 6%. Expand
The influence of environmental factors on the planktonic growth and biofilm formation of Escherichia coli
Different concentrations of salt, glucose and lactose exhibited inhibitory effect on biofilm formation, but all tested concentrations of lactose showed stimulating effect on formed biofilm of E. coli KGPMF 17. Expand
The effect of various abiotic factors on the survival growth of Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa in bathroom greywater
P. aeruginosa showed better survival in low salinity concentrations than E. coli in bathroom greywater, and cell size and zeta potential were also measured for both species under the test conditions. Expand

A study of low temperature inactivation of fecal coliforms in electrolyte solutions using hot air bubbles
AbstractA novel method to inactivate fecal coliforms in aqueous solutions, using a stream of hot air bubbles, without heating the solution above about 50 was studied in this work. Initially, it wasExpand
The role of zeta potential in the adhesion of E. coli to suspended intertidal sediments.
Investigating the adhesion of Faecal Indicator Organisms to natural suspended intertidal sediments over the salinity gradient encountered at the transition zone from freshwater to marine environments found E. coli strain characteristics were the defining factor in cell-particle adhesion, implying that diverse strain-specific transport and exposure pathways may exist.
