Scientists have shown how a bacterial protein senses changes in temperature to slacken DNA strands and boost gene expression in some foodborne pathogens.

The approach may open new avenues to control pathogenic multi-drug resistant bacteria, according to researchers from the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia.
