The effect of growth temperature on the membrane lipid environment of the psychrophilic bacterium Micrococcus cryophilus.

Abstract

The relationship between the delta 9-desaturase activity of the psychrophilic bacterium Micrococcus cryophilus grown at different temperatures and the physical state of its membrane lipids as measured by ESR spectroscopy has been studied. Arrhenius plots of desaturase activity were biphasic with a discontinuity at a temperature which depended upon the… (More)
