On the relationship of intracytoplasmic to cytoplasmic membranes in nitrogen-fixing Azotobacter vinelandii

Abstract

Dinitrogen fixing cells of Azotobacter vinelandii increase the ratio of intracytoplasmic to cytoplasmic membranes surface area linearly by a factor of six when growing in an oxygen controlled chemostat from about 1% to 100% air saturation of the culture medium (Post et al. 1982). In spite of this, cells grown at 1%, 45%, and 80% air saturation exhibited… (More)
