Nishiyama, S, Ohno, S, Ohta, N, Inoue, Y, Fukuoka, H, Ishijima, A and Kawagishi, I (2010) Thermosensing function of the Escherichia coli redox sensor Aer. J. Bacteriol. 192:1740-3
Escherichia coli chemoreceptors can sense changes in temperature for thermotaxis. Here we found that the aerotaxis transducer Aer, a homolog of chemoreceptors lacking a periplasmic domain, mediates thermoresponses. We propose that thermosensing by the chemoreceptors is a general attribute of their highly conserved cytoplasmic domain (or their less conserved transmembrane domain).
