The heat shock response in Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans, a capnophilic Gram-negative bacterial species that is implicated in the development of certain forms of periodontitis, was characterized. Different strains of A. actinomycetemcomitans were grown at 37, 42 and 48 degrees C in the presence of 35S-methionine. The bacterial cells were lysed, run on SDS-PAGE and subsequently blotted on nitrocellulose paper. After autoradiography of the blots, several protein bands from the cultures at… CONTINUE READING
