Effect of the growth environment on cell-envelope components of Escherichia coli in relation to sensitivity to human serum.

Abstract

Three smooth strains of urinary Escherichia coli were grown in a chemostat under carbon-limited (C-lim) and magnesium-limited (Mg-lim) conditions over a range of dilution rates (D). Strain LP1674 was resistant to human serum under C-lim but became sensitive when grown under Mg-lim, the degree of sensitivity increasing as D increased. The transition to serum… (More)
