Escherichia coli contains a major cold shock protein, CspA (or CS7.4), whose production is predominantly induced at low temperatures. This bacterium is known to possess five additional genes, each encoding a protein highly similar to CspA (referred to as the CspA family). Here we identified a gene that encodes a cold-shock-inducible analog of CspA and CspB. This newly cloned cspG gene is located at 22 min on the E. coli genetic map, apart from the other cspA family genes. Its gene product (70… CONTINUE READING
