Abstract

Lipopolysaccharide and protein material were released from cells of on treatment with 10 m-EDTA. Preincubation with up to 15 m-ferrous ions caused increased removal of lipopolysaccharide from bacteria grown in iron-limited medium, but preincubation with calcium, magnesium, or zinc ions was unable to induce this response. Ferrous ions appear to have an important role in the stabilization of the outer membrane of The selective interaction between ferrous ions and lipopolysaccharide may play a part in iron uptake.
