Method "E. coli B/r strain NF790, a tonA (phage T1-resistant) derivative of wild-type CP14, was used...The cell density (X) was measured as the absorbance at 450 nm (A450). Dense cultures were diluted to give readings below 0.4. The values were converted to bacterial dry weight (dw), using the factor 190 mg/liter A450."
Comments For abbreviations see p.115 table 1 link Lowest specific growth rate (k) value 0.21/hour (doubling time 3hours 18min) on glycolate as single carbon source. Highest value 1.26/hour (doubling time 33 min) on Glucose/casein hydrolysate (doubling times calculated according to t=ln2/k). See note beneath table.
