The nature of the phospholipids of the various bacteria that have ice nucleation activity in supercooled water has been determined. The seven bacteria studied included Pseudomonas syringae, Erwinia herbicola, three Escherichia coli K-12 strains that are phenotypically Ice+ because they contain plasmids with different amounts of either P. syringae or E. herbicola cloned DNA, and two E. coli K-12 strains without cloned ice gene DNA. All five Ice+ bacterial strains contained small amounts (0.1 to… CONTINUE READING
