The effects of temperatures of 50 to 60 C on suspensions of a strain of Escherichia coli are described. At these temperatures, the substances which leaked from the cells were determined as pentoses; the amount leaked over a 30-min period increased with increasing temperature. The leakage materials from suspensions heated in water, sodium chloride, sucrose… CONTINUE READING
