Figure 4

Fractions of dead, non-motile and motile cells under three medium conditions. Cells whose membrane became permeable to DiBAC were considered dead. The non-motile cells were those whose membrane was still intact, so that the cells were not labeled by DiBAC. Observations were made with SB3860 cells within minutes following the preparation as described under Materials and Methods. The fractions of motile cells were determined prior to the labeling experiments, with the results taken from FigureĀ 3. The numbers of non-motile cells counted in the labeling experiments were 467 in PYE, 1207 in 4% PEG 35000, and 565 in 44% glycerol.
