    • 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 extradomain a of fibronectin enhances the efficacy of lipopolysaccharide defective Salmonella bacterins as vaccines in mice 

      San Román Aberasturi, Beatriz Upna; Lasa Uzcudun, Íñigo Upna; Andrés Cara, Damián de Upna; Amorena Zabalza, Beatriz Upna; Lasarte, Juan José; Grilló Dolset, María Jesús; Garrido, Victoria Upna; Muñoz Álvaro, Pilar María; Arribillaga, Laura; García Martínez, Begoña Upna; Andrés, Ximena de; Zabaleta, Virginia Upna; Mansilla, Cristina; Farrán Blanch, Inmaculada Upna (BioMed Central, 2012)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      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 ...
    • Genetic reductionist approach for dissecting individual roles of GGDEF proteins within the c-di-GMP signaling network in Salmonella 

      Solano Goñi, Cristina Upna; García Martínez, Begoña Upna; Latasa Osta, Cristina Upna; Toledo Arana, Alejandro Upna; Zorraquino Salvo, Violeta; Valle Turrillas, Jaione Upna; Casals, Joan; Pedroso, Enrique; Lasa Uzcudun, Íñigo Upna (National Academy of Sciences, 2009)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      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 ...
    • Genome-wide screening of genes whose enhanced expression affects glycogen accumulation in Escherichia coli 

      Eydallin, Gustavo Upna; Montero Macarro, Manuel Upna; Almagro Zabalza, Goizeder Upna; Sesma Pascual, María Teresa Upna; Viale, Alejandro M. Upna; Muñoz, Francisco José; Rahimpour, Mehdi; Baroja Fernández, Edurne Upna; Pozueta Romero, Javier Upna (Oxford University Press, 2010)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      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 ...
    • Increased biofilm formation by nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae isolates from patients with invasive disease or otitis media versus strains recovered from cases of respiratory infections 

      Puig, Carmen Upna; Domenech, Arnau; Garmendia García, Juncal; Langereis, Jeroen D.; Mayer, Pascal; Calatayud, Laura; Liñares, Josefina; Ardanuy, Carmen; Martí, Sara (American Society for Microbiology, 2014)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      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 ...
    • SarA is an essential positive regulator of Staphylococcus epidermidis biofilm development 

      Tormo Más, María Ángeles; Martí, Miguel; Valle Turrillas, Jaione Upna; Manna, Adhar C.; Cheung, Ambrose L.; Lasa Uzcudun, Íñigo Upna; Penadés, José R. (American Society for Microbiology, 2005)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      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. ...
