Dear Netters!

  I am looking for references or any current information about the htgA 
gene of E.coli.  
  I have the original description: (Dean & James, J.Gen.Microbiol. (1991) 137 )
but nothing more, and I have not been able to find anything else by 
ploughing through the abstract books and C.C.
  It is quite likely that nothing more has been published about this gene but 
if someone is better informed I would be grateful to know.

(For those of you who don't know anything about htgA but just read this
out of curiosity:  htgA is a gene associated with the dnaK heat shock
protein and is essential for E.coli at high temperature)

Thakns !
