A DNA repair competent strain of Escherichia coli K-12 showed sensitivity to inorganic salts (at concentrations routinely used in minimal media) after irradiation with broad spectrum near–UV radiation, at fluences that caused little inactivation when plated on complex growth medium. This effect was not observed with cells that had been exposed to 254 nm radiation. This sensitivity to minimal medium was increased by increasing the salt concentration of the medium and by increasing the pH of the… CONTINUE READING
