Mechanisms of adaptation of pathogenic bacteria to environmental factors
Biochemical mechanisms of pathogenic bacteriaYersinia pseudotuberculosis andListeria monocytogenes ensuring their survival in the habitat were investigated. Low temperature and poor trophicity induce synthesis of cold isozymes in bacteria and accumulation of coenzymes of NAD and NADP-dependent dehydrogenases and intensify assimilation of hydrogen, oxygen, carbogen, and nitrogen maintaining energy and constructive metabolism under unfavorable environmental conditions.
