The growth rate of Escherichia coli can be limited by the availability of carbon and energy. To impose such a limitation, alpha-methylglucoside (alpha MG), a non-metabolizable analogue, can be used to decrease uptake of glucose by competition for the transport of this sugar. Varying the ratio of glucose to alphaMG allowed shifts in growth rate without simultaneous qualitative changes in the growth medium and permitted examination of the immediate changes accompanying such shifts.
