Abstract : The oxidation of glucose, acetate, and succinate by variously adapted cells of Escherichia coli, strain B, before and during x-irradiation did not affect the sensitivity of strain B to the irradiation. The stimulation of acetate and succinate oxidation by 2, 4-dinitrophenol (DNP) did not lessen the sensitivity of succinate-grown organisms to x-irradiation. Neither was the sensitivity of acetate-grown E. coli altered by the inhibition of succinate and anabolic potentialities were developed in strain B by adaptation and DNP treatments.
