Iron influences liminescence in Vibrio fischeri; cultures iron-restricted for growth rate induce luminescence at a lower optical density (OD) than faster growing, iron-replete cultures. An iron restriction effect analogous to that in V. fischeri (slower growth, induction of luminescence at a lower OD) was established using Escherichia coli tonB and tonB + strains transformed with recombinant plasmids containing the V. fischeri lux genes (luxR luxICD ABEG) and grown in the presence and absence… CONTINUE READING
