Paper Title:
Effect of LPS Removal on Electrophoretic Softness of Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans Cells
  Abstract

Applicability of Ohshima’s soft-particle model to evaluate the surface potential of Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans cells is discussed here. The electrokinetic properties were examined by electrophoretic mobility measurements and analyzed using the soft particle electrophoresis theory. As the ionic concentration increased, the mobility of the bacterial cells converged to nonzero values suggesting that the particles exhibited typical soft-particle characteristics. Also, cell surface potentials based on soft-particle theory were lower than those estimated using the conventional Smoluchowski theory. Effect of removal of LPS from the cell surface on surface softness and charge density are investigated and discussed.
