Abstract
The effect of increasing the extracellular magnesium ion content over the range from 5 rmM to 20 mM has been observed on the growth rate, overall rate of synthesis of total cellular proteins, induced synthesis of beta-galactosidase, and on the production of total cellular RNA in E. coli cells. Two strains of E. coli cells (E. coli B and E. coli AS 19) have been employed. E. coli AS 19 is a derivative of E. coli B that is sensitive to the antibiotic rifampin without requiring the additional presence of a chelating agent.
