Abstract

The growth of E. cloacae in 25% sodium dodecyl sulfate is described. The bacterium appeared to tolerate sodium dodecyl sulfate rather than metabolize it. The process was energy dependent, and cell lysis occurred during stationary phase. Extreme detergent resistance may be characteristic of the genus Enterobacter.
