    Notes: Abstract Previous investigations have reported that bacterial suspension cultures grow to higher stationary concentrations in space flight than on Earth; however, none of these investigations included extensive ground controls under varied inertial conditions. This study includes extensive controls and cell-growth data taken at several times during lag phase, log phase, and stationary phase of Escherichia coli and Bacillus subtilis. The Marquardt-Levenberg, least-squares fitting algorithm was used to calculate kinetic growth parameters from the logistic bacterial growth equations for space-flight and control growth curves. Space-flight cultures grew to higher stationary-phase concentrations and had shorter lag-phase durations. Also, evidence was found for increased exponential growth rate in space.

    Notes: Abstract The role of gravity in the autolysis of Bacillus subtilis and Escherichia coli was studied by growing cells on Earth and in microgravity on Space Station Mir. Autolysis analysis was completed by examining the death phase or exponential decay of cells for approximately 4 months following the stationary phase. Consistent with published findings, the stationary-phase cell population was 170% and 90% higher in flight B. subtilis and E. coli cultures, respectively, than in ground cultures. Although both flight autolysis curves began at higher cell densities than control curves, the rate of autolysis in flight cultures was identical to that of their respective ground control rates.
