In our studies to develop a simple and reliable method for the generation of recombinant adenoviruses (Fotadar et al . 2003), we noted that the E. coli (BJ5183 and DH5alpha) survived a heat‐shock of 45 °C for 5 minutes in 0.1 M calcium chloride. As a result, we investigated the growth of E. coli (DH5alpha) at elevated temperatures. We hereby demonstrate that contrary to previous observations (Cooper et al . 2001 and Bronikowski et al . 2001) E. coli can grow consistently at a temperature as… 

Escherichia coli responses to acid-stress : signal transduction and gene regulation

This study showed that loss of function of ArcA caused an increase in the RpoS activity of the acid evolved strains leading to a general stress resistant phenotype.

Escherichia coli as Model Organism and its Application in Biotechnology: A Review

In conclusion, E. coli are a natural mammalian gut bacteria used as a model organism for scientific research and is the most preferred microorganism to express heterologous proteins for therapeutic use.

Avian Pathogenic Escherichia coli ( APEC ) in Palestine : Characterization of Virulence Factors and Antibiotic Resistance Profile

Improved multiplex PCR has proven to be a useful and rapid assay to identify virulence factor profiles of APEC and the antibiotic resistance profiles ofAPEC strains in Palestine.

Tolerance of biofilm forming bacteria to thermal shock and detergent

Biofilm forming E. coli demonstrated tolerance to high thermal shock and detergent, which can assist in stabilization of anthropogenic-induced environmental imbalance.

Detection of Class I and II integrons for the assessment of antibiotic and multidrug resistance among Escherichia coli isolates from agricultural irrigation waters in Bulacan, Philippines

The results imply that the agricultural water used in Bulacan is contaminated with the fecal material of man or other animals present in the area, and the presence of MDR bacteria, which pose a potential threat to individuals in these areas, is alarming.

Thermal proteome profiling in bacteria: probing protein state in vivo

It is demonstrated that TPP can be used in bacteria to probe protein complex architecture, metabolic pathways, and intracellular drug target engagement, and it is combined in vitro and in vivo TPP to identify targets of known antimicrobial drugs and to map their downstream effects.

Growth and Maintenance of Escherichia coli Laboratory Strains

This unit includes protocols for the growth and maintenance of E. coli in any teaching‐ or research‐associated laboratory, commonly used in both teaching and research laboratories.

Characterisation of Escherichia coli in poultry and their interaction with phytochemicals

Avian pathogenic Escherichia coli (APEC) and commensal E. coli are often found in the intestinal tract of poultry. APEC can cause several types of disease manifesting at various developmental

Microbial responses to extreme radiation environments

The UV-induced activation of the strong oxidant is demonstrated, revealing its severe bacteriocidal effect on microbes, and it is shown to significantly reduce microbial viability when combined with further Martian soil constituents and components required for Photo-Fenton chemistry.

EVOLUTION OF THERMAL DEPENDENCE OF GROWTH RATE OF ESCHERICHIA COLI POPULATIONS DURING 20,000 GENERATIONS IN A CONSTANT ENVIRONMENT

Twelve experimental populations of the bacterium Escherichia coli evolved for 20,000 generations in a defined medium at 37°C to quantify the extent to which they became thermal specialists with diminished performance at other temperatures, and whether antagonistic pleiotropy or mutation accumulation was primarily responsible for any thermal specialization.

EVOLUTIONARY ADAPTATION TO TEMPERATURE. VIII. EFFECTS OF TEMPERATURE ON GROWTH RATE IN NATURAL ISOLATES OF ESCHERICHIA COLI AND SALMONELLA ENTERICA FROM DIFFERENT THERMAL ENVIRONMENTS

Data suggest that these bacterial species are thermal generalists that do not track fine-scale changes in their thermal environments, and even major differences in body temperatures, as great as those between ectothermic and endothermic hosts, may result in the evolution of rather modest changes in thermal properties.
