Archaeal Persisters: Persister Cell Formation as a Stress Response in


PMID 28871247

Abstract

Persister cells are phenotypic variants within a microbial population, which are dormant and transiently tolerant to stress. Persistence has been studied extensively in bacteria, and in eukaryotes to a limited extent, however, it has never been observed in archaea. Using the model haloarchaeon,
