This study investigated the mechanisms of heat resistance in Escherichia coli AW1.7 by quantification of cytoplasmic solutes, determination of ribosome denaturation, and by determination of protein denaturation. To assess the contribution of heat shock proteins and compatible solutes, experiments were conducted after exposure to sublethal heat shock, and(More)
This study aimed to elucidate determinants of heat resistance in Escherichia coli by comparing the composition of membrane lipids, as well as gene expression, in heat-resistant E. coli AW1.7 and heat-sensitive E. coli GGG10 with or without heat shock. The survival of E. coli AW1.7 at late exponential phase was 100-fold higher than that of E. coli GGG10(More)
