WecD is an essential enzyme in the biosynthesis of enterobacterial common antigen (ECA), an outer membrane glycophospholipid that is conserved among all members of the Enterobacteriaceae family, including Escherichia coli.
Antisense RNA Knockdown and Genomic Deletion of wecD Sensitizes Escherichia coli to Bacteriophage T7 Infection
Deletion of OmpF is Not Sufficient to Confer Sensitivity to Ethylenediaminetetraacetic Acid in Escherichia coli Strain K-12
The MlaA pathway maintains lipid asymmetry in the outer membrane of Gram negative bacteria. OmpF and OmpC proteins both interact directly with MlaA.
Escherichia coli OmpC Mutants Are Sensitive to Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid and Sodium Dodecyl Sulfate Treatment Whereas Double OmpC and OmpF Mutants Are Not
The Mla pathway is hypothesized to be an ATP binding cassette transport system in Escherichia coli that maintains outer membrane asymmetry. Outer membrane proteins C (OmpC) and F (OmpF) have been shown to interact with MlaA, a key lipoprotein in the Mla pathway.
cpxP Deletion Confers Resistance to Misfolded PapE-Induced Cytotoxicity Through Enhanced CpxAR Activation in Escherichia coli
CpxAR is a two-component system that is conserved among Gram-negative bacteria. The CpxAR system is thought to respond to envelope stress derived from a variety of stimuli, including pH, salt and protein misfolding.
Deletion of the Group 1 Capsular Gene wza in Escherichia coli E69 Confers Resistance to the Antibiotic Erythromycin on Solid Media but not in Liquid Media
It has been suggested that the presence of a capsule influences the level of antibiotic resistance of a bacterium, although there have been contradicting studies in the literature.
The Rcs Phosphorelay System and RcsB Regulated rprA Contribute to Intrinsic Antibiotic Resistance in Escherichia coli Exposed to Antibiotics Targeting the Cell Wall
Bacteria orchestrate gene expression to cope with stressful conditions. Physical and antibiotic stressors induce regulators of stress response pathways to allow enhanced bacterial survival.
Expression and Purification of a Potato Type II Proteinase Inhibitor in Escherichia coli Strain BL21(DE3)
Type II proteinase inhibitors (PI2) derived from potato tubers have demonstrated protective capabilities against microbes and insects through the inhibition of foreign proteases.
Identification of fungi from soil in the Nakimu caves of Glacier National Park
The Nakimu caves of Glacier National Park, British Columbia, CA are a remote, oligotrophic karst environment. These caves are swarming sites of endangered little brown myotis (Myotis lucifugus) and northern myotis (Myotis septentrionalis) bat populations.
Yeasts from greenhouse grapes show less phenotypic and genetic diversity than yeasts from vineyard grapes when isolated from grape crush cultured in liquid media
High quality and regional wines are characterized by the use of indigenous species of yeasts in co-fermentation with commercial strains, providing unique and robust flavors and aromas.
Improvement of protocols for the screening of biological control agents against white-nose syndrome
White-nose syndrome, caused by the fungus Pseudogymnoascus destructans (Pd), has become increasingly prevalent in North America since 2006 and has caused mass mortality in many bat populations.
