The influence of hydrostatic pressure upon biochemical activities of heterotrophic bacteria.


Heterotrophic terrestrial and marine bacterial protein synthetic rates decrease by about 16% of the 1-atm rate for every 100 atm of pressure increment, within the pressure range of 1 to 500 atm. It is proposed that protein synthesis is nore severely inhibited by pressure than are other anabolic or catabolic reactions.
