Production of heat-shock proteins is induced when a living cell is exposed to a rise in temperature. The heat-shock response of protein DnaK synthesis in E.coli for temperature shifts T-->T+DeltaT and T-->T-DeltaT is measured as a function of the initial temperature T. We observe a reversed heat shock at low T. The magnitude of the shock increases when one(More)
