Abstract

Rapid development of competence can be induced in cultures of by incubation at 37 °C after previous growth at 42 °C. This temperature-induced competence was accompanied by an increase in DNA binding capacity and breakdown of donor DNA. Inhibition of protein synthesis prevented the rapid increase of competence. This is probably due to the inhibition of synthesis of a constituent that enables the bacteria to bind DNA.
