Pseudomonas putida CP1 formed clumps of cells when grown on mono-chlorophenols but not on phenol or glucose. An increase in cell numbers for the organism grown on mono-chlorophenols was accompanied by a decrease in the dry weight. The change in shape of the bacterium from rod shape to coccus shape coupled with a reduction in cell size when the organism was grown under nutritional stress was found. This result together with cell aggregation affected the measurement of growth parameters in the… CONTINUE READING
