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… Expand
