      Taglialegna, Agustina Upna; Matilla Cuenca, Leticia; Dorado Morales, Pedro; Navarro, Susanna; Ventura, Salvador; Garnett, James A.; Lasa Uzcudun, Íñigo Upna; Valle Turrillas, Jaione Upna (Nature ResearchNanyang Technological University (Singapur), 2020)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Functional amyloids are considered as common building block structures of the biofilm matrix in different bacteria. In previous work, we have shown that the staphylococcal surface protein Bap, a member of the Biofilm-Associated ...
    • 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 ...
