SUMMARY: Proteus vulgaris, suspended in meat extract broth or in a defined medium, bound cobalt to an extent dependent on the cell concentration and on the concentration of cobalt in the medium. An increase in concentration of cobalt or a decrease in the number of cells per unit volume resulted in a greater amount of cobalt ion bound per unit of cellular material. The composition of the suspending medium with regard to the cobalt combining groups present, as well as the availability of other…

EFFECT OF METALLIC IONS ON THE GROWTH, MORPHOLOGY, AND METABOLISM OF CLOSTRIDIUM PERFRINGENS
TLDR
Cobalt plays an incompletely understood rule in cellular metabolism and some studies have been performed which suggest the mode of action of Co++.
CHARACTERISTICS OF A COBALT TOLERANT CULTURE OF SACCHAROMYCES CEREVISIAE
The literature on the metabolism of cobalt by microoiganisms includes studies on the toxicity to fungi and yeasts (Bokorny, 1912; Perlman, 1948) as well as reports on the absorption of this element

Modelling the Effect of Copper on the Growth Rate of Enterobacter sp. strain Neni-13 on SDS
The introduction of tiny amounts of heavy metals into the environment can encourage the growth of a wide variety of microorganisms. The concentration at which enhanced microbial activity is seen, on
Cationic composition of 22 species of bacteria grown in seawater medium
TLDR
Twenty-two species of bacteria of marine, estuarine, and terrestrial origin were analyzed for cationic content by atomic absorption spectrophotometry after growth in a basal seawater medium, finding major ions were concentrated only occasionally by the cells after washing and trace elements were concentrated from the medium by the following factors on the average.
Characterization of a cobalt-resistant mutant of Neurospora crassa with transport block
TLDR
The partial transport block for cobalt uptake is shown to be primarily due to decreased surface binding of cobalt to mycelia and cell walls, and the characteristics of cor in comparison with wild type N. crassa are discussed in relation to the mechanisms of Cobalt resistance.
The inhibition of microorganisms by heavy metals

COBALT AND BACTERIAL GROWTH, WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO PROTEUS VULGARIS
TLDR
This paper shall consider only those aspects of the growth-inhibitory effect of cobalt on bacteria, particularly P. vulgaris, which are of a cultural rather than of a metabolic nature and the results of these studies will appear subsequently.
ION ANTAGONISMS IN MICROORGANISMS: INTERFERENCE OF NORMAL MAGNESIUM METABOLISM BY NICKEL, COBALT, CADMIUM, ZINC, AND MANGANESE
TLDR
Investigation of the effect of trace elements on the metabolism of Escherichia coli, Aerobacter aerogenes, Torulopsis utilis, and Aspergillus niger showed that some of these effects were influenced by the magnesium level in the medium and that low magnesium concentrations led to heightened toxicity of the foregoing divalent cations.
Cation Adsorption by Bacteria
TLDR
An understanding of the mechanism by which a bacterial cell takes ions from its environment and concentrates them in a limited area around and inside the cell, with an electrical force sufficient to limit their freedom of movement, might help to elucidate some of the laws governing the physiological activity of these organisms.
THE CHEMICAL ALTERATION OF A BACTERIAL SURFACE, WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO THE AGGLUTINATION OF B. PROTEUS OX-19
TLDR
Concomitant changes in the agglutinability of substituted organisms have been observed, without appreciable change in the antibody-combining capacities of the organisms.
The Antibacterial Action of Surface Active Cations
TLDR
Observations on the reversibility of the antibacterial effect of the surfaceactive cations, and on the protective action on bacteria exerted by relatively harmless cations against the action of toxic cations indicate that there is a close relationship between the antib bacterial behavior of metallic and dye cations and that of surface- active cations.
