The influence of different growth-limiting factors -namely the sources of carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus and the dilution (growth) rate -on the ice-nucleation activity of Pseudomonas syn'ngae CCM 4073 was studied. A higher ice-nucleation activity was observed at a lower dilution (growth) rate ( D = 0.1 h-I) than at a higher dilution (growth) rate (0 = 0.3 h-'). Remarkable differences in icenucleation activity were found in its dependence on the growth-limiting factor. The highest icenucleation activity was o…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
