Adhesion of desulfovibrio desulfuricans and pseudomonas fluorescens to mild steel surfaces



Adhesion of desulfovibrio desulfuricans and pseudomonas fluorescens to mild steel surfaces



Journal of Applied Bacteriology 67(2): 201-208



The adhesion of micro-organisms to metal surfaces has been shown to be important in the corrosion process, but the cell surface structures participating in this adhesion have not previously been identified. Evidence is presented that a bacterial substance taking part in the initial adhesion of Pseudomonas fluorescens and Desulfovibrio desulfuricans (New Jersey) to mild steel is polysaccharide in nature. It is likely that this is present in the outer membrane of the bacterial cells as lipopolysaccharide.
