The response of an arctic psychrophile Aquaspirillum sp. Res-10 and the psychrotroph Bacillus psychrophilus to heat shock and nalidixic acid was investigated. Both agents induced heat shock proteins (hsps) or stress proteins and cellular filamentation in these bacteria. With Aquaspirillum sp. Res-10, nalidixic acid added to cells at 0° C induced the synthesis of 9 stress proteins, 3 of which were similar to hsps induced during a 0 to 20° C heat shock. Treatment of B. psychrophilus with… CONTINUE READING
