`Molecular thermometer' found in common bacteria

Day, S.
January 1992
New Scientist;1/11/92, Vol. 133 Issue 1803, p19
Reports on research by scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on how cells detect changes in temperature. They believe that a protein detects changes in temperature. Discovered during a study of the `heat shock response' in cells;Details of the discovery.
