Abstract

This thesis describes a study of the nature of the responses to stress, particularly acid stress, in Lactobacillus paracasei and Bifidobacterium anitnalis (syn. lactis). The aims of the study were validate the identification of the bacteria being studied, to determine the nature of their stress responses and compare them to known responses and to gain information regarding the proteins up-regulated during stress.
