Effects of Glucose Concentration on the growth of Pseudomonas fluorescens

Original hypothesis

Original Hypothesis

  • High concentrations of glucose in the LB media are enabling biphasic growth.


Experiment 3

Experiment 3

Note: the different lag times between .5 and 2% glucose


Second try experiment 5

Second try…experiment 5

Note: no biphasic growth, long lag times, and lower max OD’s with higher conc. Of glucose and smaller concentrations of LB.


In graph form

In graph form…


New hypothesis

New Hypothesis…

  • Pseudomonas fluorescens can survive high osmostic pressure from high glucose concentrations, however, it must adjust through regulation of it’s genes.


Constant lb and varying glucose experiment 7

Constant LB and Varying Glucose(experiment 7)


Conclusions

Conclusions

  • Pseudomonas fluorescenscan survive more osmotic pressure than previously believed.

  • The biphasic growth was not reproducible.

  • High glucose concentrations increased lag times, indicating some sort of regulatory changes that must be done in order for the organism to survive.

  • Restricting LB media, decreased maximum populations of organism, proving that the organism cannot make it’s some amino acids and vitamins….

  • Continuing research should be done on the molecular level to see what actually enables this organism to live at such extreme osmotic pressure.
