Recovery of Injured Escherichia coli

N. Raja, R.J. Rowbury and D.G. Smith

ED1829ColV, I-K 94, a derivative of Escherichia coli K-12, were injured with hydrogen peroxide, acetic and formic acid for various length of time at acidic pH(s) in Nutrient Broth # 2. The acid injured organicism recovered significantly better in the media containing phosphate than the media without phosphate. Phosphate helped in plating efficiency of the inured bacterial population and somehow expedite the recovery process of the acid stressed organisms.
