Effect of Electrolytes on Growth of Mutant Bacteria
In many microbial systems, it has been observed that the phenotypes of certain mutants can be corrected by increasing the electrolyte concentration (or in some cases merely the osmotic strength) of their growth medium. The basis of these effects is not fully understood, but an understanding of these phenomena promises to shed light on how cells respond to such enviornmental stress.
