    • B regulates IS256-mediated Staphylococcus aureus biofilm phenotypic variation 

      Valle Turrillas, Jaione Upna; Vergara Irigaray, Marta Upna; Merino, Nekane; Penadés, José R.; Lasa Uzcudun, Íñigo Upna (American Society for Microbiology, 2007)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Biofilm formation in Staphylococcus aureus is subject to phase variation, and biofilm-negative derivatives emerge sporadically from a biofilm-positive bacterial population. To date, the only known mechanism for generating ...
    • Bap, a Staphylococcus aureus surface protein involved in biofilm formation 

      Cucarella, Carme; Solano Goñi, Cristina Upna; Valle Turrillas, Jaione Upna; Amorena Zabalza, Beatriz Upna; Lasa Uzcudun, Íñigo Upna; Penadés, José R. (American Society for Microbiology, 2001)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Identification of new genes involved in biofilm formation is needed to understand the molecular basis of strain variation and the pathogenic mechanisms implicated in chronic staphylococcal infections. A biofilm-producing ...
    • The enterococcal surface protein, Esp, is involved in Enterococcus faecalis biofilm formation 

      Toledo Arana, Alejandro Upna; Valle Turrillas, Jaione Upna; Solano Goñi, Cristina Upna; Arrizubieta Balerdi, María Jesús; Cucarella, Carme; Lamata, Marta; Amorena Zabalza, Beatriz Upna; Leiva, José; Penadés, José R.; Lasa Uzcudun, Íñigo Upna (American Society for Microbiology, 2001)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      The enterococcal surface protein, Esp, is a high-molecular-weight surface protein of unknown function whose frequency is significantly increased among infection-derived Enterococcus faecalis isolates. In this work, a ...
