Abstract

In this issue of Molecular Cell, Gutierrez et al. (2017) unravel a bacterial survival strategy that they term “density-dependent persistence” or DDP. The authors demonstrate that the majority of isogenic cells in bacterial populations survive lethal antibiotic doses once bacteria consume nutrients and enter stationary growth phase. In this issue of Molecular Cell, Gutierrez et al. (2017) unravel a bacterial survival strategy that they term “density-dependent persistence” or DDP. The authors demonstrate that the majority of isogenic cells in bacterial populations survive lethal antibiotic doses once bacteria consume nutrients and enter stationary growth phase.
