Polyamines (PAs) are polybasic aliphatic amines that are ubiquitous in prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms. It is believed that PAs play important roles in cell division, embryogenesis, floral and fruit development, root formation and defense against environmental stress including biotic and abiotic stresses. It has been well documented that PAs are(More)
Strain tolerance to toxic metabolites remains an important issue in the production of biofuels. Here we examined the impact of overexpressing the heterologous groESL chaperone from Clostridium acetobutylicum to enhance the tolerance of Escherichia coli against several stressors. Strain tolerance was identified using strain maximum specific growth rate (μ)(More)
