Extraction and Analysis of Bacterial Teichoic Acids
Authors:  Kelvin Kho and Timothy C. Meredith, date: 11/05/2018, view: 123, Q&A: 0
Teichoic acids (TA) are anionic polymers comprised of polyol phosphate repeat units that are abundant in the cell wall of Gram-positive bacteria. Both wall teichoic acid (WTA) and lipoteichoic acid (LTA) play important roles in regulating cell wall ...

Implementation of Blue Light Switchable Bacterial Adhesion for Design of Biofilms
Authors:  Fei Chen and Seraphine V. Wegner, date: 06/20/2018, view: 994, Q&A: 0
Control of bacterial adhesions to a substrate with high precision in space and time is important to form a well-defined biofilm. Here, we present a method to engineer bacteria such that they adhere specifically to substrates under blue light through ...
