    • Staphylococcal Bap proteins build amyloid scaffold biofilm matrices in response to environmental signals 

      Taglialegna, Agustina Upna; Navarro, Susanna; Ventura, Salvador; Garnett, James A.; Matthews, Steve; Penadés, José R.; Lasa Uzcudun, Íñigo Upna; Valle Turrillas, Jaione Upna (Public Library of Science, 2016)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Major components of the biofilm matrix scaffold are proteins that assemble to create a unified structure that maintain bacteria attached to each other and to surfaces. We provide evidence that a surface protein present in ...
    • Staphylococcus aureus develops an alternative, ica-independent biofilm in the absence of the arlRS two-component system 

      Toledo Arana, Alejandro Upna; Merino, Nekane Upna; Vergara Irigaray, Marta Upna; Débarbouillé, Michel; Penadés, José R.; Lasa Uzcudun, Íñigo Upna (American Society for Microbiology, 2005)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      The biofilm formation capacity of Staphylococcus aureus clinical isolates is considered an important virulence factor for the establishment of chronic infections. Environmental conditions affect the biofilm formation capacity ...
    • Staphylococcus aureus pathogenicity island DNA is packaged in particles composed of phage proteins 

      Tormo Más, María Ángeles; Ferrer, María Desamparados; Maiques, Elisa; Ubeda, Carles; Selva, Laura; Lasa Uzcudun, Íñigo Upna; Calvete, Juan J.; Novick, Richard P.; Penadés, José R. (American Society for Microbiology, 2008)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Staphylococcus aureus pathogenicity islands (SaPIs) have an intimate relationship with temperate staphylococcal phages. During phage growth, SaPIs are induced to replicate and are efficiently encapsidated into special small ...
    • Study of the molecular mechanisms underlying Bap-mediated cell-cell interactions in Staphylococcus aureus 

      Taglialegna, Agustina Upna (2016)   Tesis doctoral / Doktoretza tesia  OpenAccess
      La mayoría de los microorganismos son capaces de vivir en comunidades sésiles, siendo esta forma de crecimiento bastante más frecuente que la forma de vida planctónica. En estas comunidades microbianas, conocidas como ...
