Abstract

SUMMARY: Sodium chloride decreased the maximum specific growth rate of . Chemostat experiments showed this to be largely due to an increased requirement for energy-yielding substrate, apparently linked to maintenance and leading to a decrease in the yield. The increased maintenance requirement is probably concerned with maintaining an intracellular Na concentration ten times lower than the extracellular concentration. NaCl caused much higher concentrations of glucose to be required to maintain any particular glucose-uptake rate; it also increased the production of glycerol.
