Comments P.1 3rd paragraph: "Most bacteria, including E. coli and S. typhimurium, can grow over a range of approximately 40°C. The growth rates of most wild-type strains of E. coli and S. typhimurium respond similarly to changes in temperature the particular response of E. coli B/r is shown in Fig. 1. The normal temperature range extends from 21 to 37°C, over which range µ has a value of 13,000 to 14,000 cal/mol (ca. 54,000 to 59,000 J/mol BNID 105004). The maximum temperature at which balanced growth can be sustained by this strain is approximately 49°C (BNID 105002). The minimum temperature for sustained growth of E. coli ML30, and presumably other strains as well, lies between 7.5 and 7.8°C (primary source)."
