Phenotypic Variations and Molecular Identification of Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhimurium Cells Under Starvation in Seawater


In seawater, enteric bacteria evolve toward a stressed state that is difficult to identify because of major alterations of their phenotype. In this study, we incubated four reference strains of S. enterica serovar Typhimurium in seawater microcosms for 10 months and studied the modifications of their main phenotypic characters. All of the strains lost some… (More)
