BIS 104 PQ 15 15. In class we discussed the experimental evidence that the enzyme desaturase A is required for a bacterium, such as E. coli, to maintain membrane fluidity so it can continue to replicate at a normal rate when subjected to low temperatures. Describe an experiment or observation that would support the plausibility

Unformatted text preview: of the idea that desaturase A activity might be involved in regulating membrane fluidity. Design an experiment to test the hypothesis that an increase in desaturase A activity is sufficient to allow a cell to maintain its replication rate when subjected to low temperatures. Describe the results of your experiment....
