Figure 2

Effect of betaine on the growth of Escherichia coli in glucose-minimal medium. Without added NaCl the growth rate yield and minimum growth temperature are the same with and without betaine. With 4% NaCl the growth rate and yield are lower without betaine and the actual minimum temperature for growth is approximately 9°C lower than with betaine (K. Krist, unpub. data).
