Length growth of two Escherichia coli B/r substrains.

By M Meyer, M A De Jong, R Demets and N Nanninga


Length growth of synchronized Escherichia coli B/r substrain A (ATCC 12407) and B/r substrain F26 (Thy his) was followed with an electron microscope. Cells were grown with doubling times (tau) of 60 min (B/rA) and of 82 and 165 min (B/rF26). Different length growth patterns were found for the two substrains. In B/rF, the length growth rate increased about midway in the cell cycle. For tau = 165 min, the rate increase was preceded by a short period of slow growth. For B/r A (r = 60 min), this period seemed to occur at the beginning of the cell cycle. The possibility is raised that the different length growth patterns are related to different deoxyribonucleic acid replication patterns of the respective strains
