Transcriptional profiling of E. coli K-12 and E. coli O157 (Sakai) following heat shock at 45 degree celsius


ABSTRACT: Escherichia coli O157 presents a number of specific problems in terms of food safety and public health. It has been found that E. coli O157 is more resistant to a number of the stresses encountered during food production such as heat, pH and osmotic shock. This greater resistance is thought to contribute to the low infectious dose of E. coli O157 (<100 organisms). Moreover, E. coli O157 is associated with debilitating conditions such as haemorrhagic colitis and haemoytic uraemic syndrome, particularly in children and the elderly. We have been studying the stress responses of E. coli O157:H7 (Sakai) and comparing with a commensal strain of E. coli K-12, MG1655. We found that E. coli O157 (Sakai) is more resistant to heat stress than MG1655. A microarray study of these strains subjected to sub-lethal heat-stress at 45°C was carried out. In E. coli O157 (Sakai), 380 genes responded significantly to the treatment compared to 410 genes in MG1655. Overnight cultures of E. coli O157 (Sakai) and E. coli K-12 MG1655 were grown in Neidhardt's EZ Rich Defined Medium and diluted 1:100 in 50 ml fresh medium in 125 ml Ehrlenmeyer flasks. The cultures were shaken at 37°C until the optical density (OD600) reached 0.4. Each culture was divided into 2 equal parts in identical flasks. One flask flask was transferred to a shaking water bath and incubated at 45°C for 10 min; the other flask was incubated at 37°C for 10 min. After incubation, the cultures were transferred to 50 mL centrifuge tubes and treated with RNAprotect™ to stabilise the mRNA. The experiment was performed 3 times on different days. Six custom-made microarray slides were used in this study; each slide was hybridised with labelled cDNA made from untreated and heated E. coli O157 (Sakai) or MG1655.
