Pressure-regulated Metabolism in Microorganisms


Pressure-regulated Metabolism in Microorganisms

F Abe et al. Trends Microbiol.


There has been a renewal of interest in the survival strategies employed by deep-sea, high-pressure-adapted (piezophilic) microorganisms as well as in the effects of high pressure on mesophilic, 1-atmosphere-pressure-adapted microorganisms. This is partly the result of a greater appreciation of the adaptations of microorganisms to life in extreme environments and partly the result of the development of new techniques for examining physiological and molecular processes as a function of pressure.
