We summarize the latest data concerning the reactions of Escherichia coli to nonthermal terahertz radiation. Escherichia coli is the simplest and most convenient model object for studying the effects of terahertz radiation on living organisms. Its genetics and metabolism have been well studied, and its easy accessibity to genetic engineering allows designing biosensors that employ the promoters of genes activated by certain stress factors and the reporter GFP protein. Escherichia coli cells… CONTINUE READING
