  1. Heitzer A, Mason C, Hamer G. Heat shock gene expression in continuous cultures of Escherichia coli. J Biotechnol. 1992;22:153-69 pubmed
    ..The relative magnitude of the response was found to be both temperature and exposure time dependent, but growth rate independent. Changing medium composition resulted in both different steady and transient state expression levels. ..
  2. Heitzer A, Mason C, Snozzi M, Hamer G. Some effects of growth conditions on steady state and heat shock induced htpG gene expression in continuous cultures of Escherichia coli. Arch Microbiol. 1990;155:7-12 pubmed
    ..From these results a clearly temperature regulated htpG expression during both, steady and transient state growth in continuous culture is evident, which is further significantly affected by the growth condition used. ..

    ..Thus, at the alkA promoter, the Ada protein can act as both a positive and negative modulator of the adaptive response to alkylation damage, depending on the cell's physiological state. ..

    ..Our results indicate that CsgD can modulate cellulose biosynthesis through activation of the yoaD gene. In addition, the positive effect of CsgD on biofilm formation might be enhanced by repression of the fecR gene. ..
