Characterization of phenotypes in RNase I mutant E. coli by electron microscopy

by Joseph Fabrizio and Anna Byland
A mutant E. coli strain with an RNase knockout gene was investigated for its role in disturbing cyclic nucleotide pathways necessary for cell signaling and biofilm production. Scanning Electron Microscopy and ImmunoEM were used to identify phenotypic changes, such as the presence of flagella, to further identify the changes that these cells encounter to aid in the production of biofilms.
