dc.description.abstractAerobic glucose metabolism by Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilms at various calcium loading rates was investigated. The influence of calcium on specific growth rate, extracellular polymeric substance (EPS) formation rate, biofilm detachment rate, and biofilm calcium concentrations was determined. Calcium accumulated in the biofilm in proportion to the liquid phase concentration. Increasing calcium concentration increased the cohesiveness of the biofilm as indicated by a lower relative detachment rate. Specific activity in the biofilm was the same as that measured in a chemostat and was not influenced by changing calcium concentration. EPS formation rate in the biofilm was unaffected by calcium concentration but was higher than that observed in a chemostat.en_US
