BIOTECHNOLOGY & SYNTHETIC BIOLOGY

Chaetomium globosum CDW7, an endophyte from Ginkgo biloba, is a promising biocontrol fungus against Sclerotinia sclerotiorum in agriculture.

ENVIRONMENTAL MICROBIOLOGY

Incidental mutations occur widely during transposon mutagenesis.

Microbial strains incorporated in the probiotic affected PBMC’ cytokine production and altered the cross-talk between immune and colon cancer cells.

FOOD MICROBIOLOGY

Based on FTIR it is possible to discriminate between smooth and rough colony morphotypes of the pleomorphic strain L. farciminis.

PATHOGENS & PATHOGENICITY

Pseudomonas baetica: pathogenicity and diagnosis.

Four naturally occurring variants of the invasion factor InlB when placed in the same genetic background provided different levels of Listeria monocytogenes accumulation in the liver of intragastrically infected mice.

Season of weaning, weaning weight and age of dam influence survival rate of piglets affected bowel edema caused by an atypical verocytotoxin-producing E. coli serotype.

PHYSIOLOGY & BIOCHEMISTRY

TsdC is a unique lipoprotein from Wolinella succinogenes that enhances specific activity of the bifunctional tetrathionate reductase TsdA in this organism.

This study explores global regulation of Escherichia coli biofilm cultured with and without oxygen.

Microbial sterol catabolism is initiated by conversion of 3β-ol-5-en into the corresponding 3-keto-4-en feature by either cholesterol oxidase requiring molecular oxygen or a NAD(P)-dependent dehydrogenase.

Glutamic acid at 152nd position is important for NDM-5 activity.

Analysis of Escherichia coli lacking combinations of MalP, GlgX and GlgP indicates that they are all involved in glycogen degradation.
