Bacteria respond to stress by regulatory networks which modulate gene expression. These response mechanisms are essential for coping with the stress and for adapting to the new conditions. The regulation of the stress response involves several molecular pathways which control transcription, translation, and stability of transcripts and of proteins. These molecular responses are the topic of this chapter, which focuses on adaptation to upshift in temperature (heat-shock response) and to starvation-stationary conditions (general stress response).
