Inhibition of DNA replication in Escherichia coli by dibromophenol and other uncouplers.


DNA replication in Escherichia coli is inhibited by uncouplers such as 2,4-dibromophenol and 3,3'4',5-tetrachlorosalicylanilide. Inhibition occurs in either aerobically or anaerobically growing cells or in cells made permeable by toluene. With anaerobically growing cells, inhibition by dibromophenol is reversible and occurs under conditions in which there… (More)
