Colony Immunoblotting Assay for Detection of Bacterial Cell-surface or Extracellular Proteins
Authors:  Timo A. Lehti and Benita Westerlund-Wikström, date: 09/05/2013, view: 20796, Q&A: 1
This simple protocol describes how to detect antigens from agar-grown bacterial colonies transferred to nitrocellulose using specific antibodies. The protocol is well suitable for detection of bacterial proteins exposed on the cell surface or ...

Strand-specific Single-stranded DNA Sequencing (4S-seq) of E. coli genomes
Authors:  Takahiro Masuda, Nobuaki Kono, Masaru Tomita and Kazuharu Arakawa, date: 08/05/2019, view: 598, Q&A: 0
Most bacterial genomes have biased nucleotide composition, and the asymmetry is considered to be caused by a single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) deamination arising from the bacterial replication machinery. In order to evaluate the relationship ...

Biofilm Assays on Fibrinogen-coated Silicone Catheters and 96-well Polystyrene Plates
Authors:  Cristina Colomer-Winter, José A. Lemos and Ana L. Flores-Mireles, date: 03/20/2019, view: 1470, Q&A: 0
Biofilm formation is a well-known bacterial strategy that protects cells from hostile environments. During infection, bacteria found in a biofilm community are less sensitive to antibiotics and to the immune response, often allowing them to colonize ...
