Iodine Staining of Escherichia coli Expressing Genes Involved in the Synthesis of Bacterial Glycogen
The presence of intracellular glycogen can be detected by the following iodine staining technique. Cells with glycogen stain dark brown, whereas in its absence they remain with a pale yellowish color. It is hypothesized that iodine atoms fit into ...
