Cell density dependent acid sensitivity in stationary phase cultures of enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli O157:H7.

Datta AR, Benjamin MM


Escherichia coli O157:H7, the causative agent of hemorrhagic colitis and hemolytic uremic syndrome, can survive in a highly acidic environment. The acid resistance of this organism, as measured by its ability to survive in low pH, depended on the density of the cells present during the assay. At low cell densities (
