Range of osmolality on which E. coli grows

Range <0.03 to 3.0 Osm
Organism Bacteria Escherichia coli
Reference Cayley S, Record MT Jr. Large changes in cytoplasmic biopolymer concentration with osmolality indicate that macromolecular crowding may regulate protein-DNA interactions and growth rate in osmotically stressed Escherichia coli K-12. J Mol Recognit. 2004 Sep-Oct17(5):488-96. p.489 right column 2nd paragraphPubMed ID15362109
Comments "Remarkably, E. coli grows over a 100- fold range of osmolality, from <0.03 to 3 Osm."
