Over expression of inducible proteins in Escherichia coli by treatment with ethanol.

It is reported that ethanol enhances DNA synthesis in E. coli cells [Basu, T and Poddar, R. K. (1994), Folia. Microbiol. 39, 3-6]. This communication reports that during growth of E. coli in the presence of 5% v/v ethanol, the derepressed expression of the cytoplasmic enzymes beta-galactosidase and D-serine deaminase per cell increased approximately three… CONTINUE READING
