Growth and conversion to the mucoid phenotype by nonmucoid Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1 was studied in a chemostat system under conditions designed to reflect those likely to be present during chronic infection in the lung in cystic fibrosis patients. Mucoid variants were consistently isolated during continuous culture in the presence of 0.3 M NaCl or 5 or 10% glycerol. Mucoid subpopulations were also detected under conditions of carbon, nitrogen, or phosphate limitation. During carbon or… CONTINUE READING
