Environmental temperature regulates transcription of a virulence pili operon in E. coli.

Abstract

The expression in Escherichia coli K-12 of a pilus-adhesion determinant, obtained through molecular cloning from a pyelonephritic E. coli isolate, was studied at different temperatures. Strain HB101 carrying the recombinant plasmid pRHU845 agglutinated human erythrocytes after growth at 37 degrees C but not after growth at 22 degrees C. Quantitation of… (More)
