The effect of heat stress on subsequent duration of the lag time of individual cells of Lactobacillus plantarum was analysed by flow cytometry. The results show clearly that both the mean and the standard deviation of the distribution of the lag time increased after sublethal heat treatment. The distributions of the lag times or the log lag times of untreated and treated cells, respectively, could be described as extreme value distributions. From these distributions, the distribution of the… CONTINUE READING
