Bacteria dying upon oxygen depletion - From Figure 1 of Arjes, et al
July 2019 - I published my research article "Biosurfactant production maintains viability in anoxic conditions by depolarizing the membrane in Bacillus subtilisabout how a bacterium that needs oxygen responds to oxygen starvation (hint, it's not good - most of the cells die and rupture, but I discovered ~10% remain alive due to a molecule that pokes holes in the cell membrane). This is on BioRXIV here (and currently under review at Current Biology):
