The extradomain a of fibronectin enhances the efficacy of lipopolysaccharide defective Salmonella bacterins as vaccines in mice
(BioMed Central, 2012) Artículo / Artikulua,
The Extradomain A from fibronectin (EDA) has an immunomodulatory role as fusion protein with viral and tumor antigens, but its effect when administered with bacteria has not been assessed. Here, we investigated the adjuvant ...
Genome-wide screening of genes whose enhanced expression affects glycogen accumulation in Escherichia coli
(Oxford University Press, 2010) Artículo / Artikulua,
Using a systematic and comprehensive gene expression library (the ASKA library), we have carried out a genome-wide screening of the genes whose increased plasmid-directed expression affected glycogen metabolism in Escherichia ...
Bap, a Staphylococcus aureus surface protein involved in biofilm formation
(American Society for Microbiology, 2001) info:eu-repo/semantics/article,
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 ...
SarA is an essential positive regulator of Staphylococcus epidermidis biofilm development
(American Society for Microbiology, 2005) info:eu-repo/semantics/article,
Staphylococcus epidermidis biofilm formation is associated with the production of the polysaccharide intercellular adhesin (PIA)--poly-N-acetylglucosamine polysaccharide (PNAG) by the products of the icaADBC operon. ...
Genetic reductionist approach for dissecting individual roles of GGDEF proteins within the c-di-GMP signaling network in Salmonella
(National Academy of Sciences, 2009) info:eu-repo/semantics/article,
Bacteria have developed an exclusive signal transduction system involving multiple diguanylate cyclase and phosphodiesterase domain-containing proteins (GGDEF and EAL/HD-GYP, respectively) that modulate the levels of the ...
Increased biofilm formation by nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae isolates from patients with invasive disease or otitis media versus strains recovered from cases of respiratory infections
(American Society for Microbiology, 2014) info:eu-repo/semantics/article,
Biofilm formation by nontypeable (NT) Haemophilus influenzae remains a controversial topic. Nevertheless, biofilm-like structures have been observed in the middle-ear mucosa of experimental chinchilla models of otitis media ...
