The effects of glucose on biomass and temperature-mediated recombinant gene expression has been studied in Escherichia coli batch cultures. Glucose, above 2 g/L, has inhibitory effects on aerobic cell growth and specially on gene expression. Although lower concentrations have no influences on biomass, a tenuous, but still remarkable concentration-dependent reduction of gene expression levels was observed even at about 0.1 g/L. © 1993 Chapman & Hall.
