The vital roles played by metallic ions in the metabolic activities of bacteria are well known. One such ion, magnesium, has been reported to be quite versatile in its relation to the cell. It has been demonstrated to hold a prominent position in oxidative activities which generate high energy phosphate bonds (Goucher and Kocholaty, 1954). It has been… CONTINUE READING
