Enhanced Resistance to Several Abiotic Stresses in Vibrio cholerae during Starvation.


In this study, we investigated whether Vibrio cholerae cells exposed to nutrient-limited conditions developed resistance to abiotic stresses because of which most, if not all, starved cells turn coccoid in shape and exhibited marked resistance to freezing, low pH, and chlorine, but not against bile.
