Fitness Measurements of Evolved Esherichia coli
Authors:  Migla Miskinyte and Isabel Gordo, date: 09/05/2014, view: 4276, Q&A: 0
Bacteria can adapt very rapidly to novel selective pressures. In the transition from commensalism to pathogenicity bacteria have to face and adapt to the host immune system. Specifically, the antagonistic interaction imposed by one of the first line ...
Evolution of Escherichia coli to Macrophage Cell Line
Authors:  Migla Miskinyte and Isabel Gordo, date: 09/05/2014, view: 4153, Q&A: 0
The genomes of species of Escherichia coli (E. coli) show an extraordinary amount of diversity, which include commensal strains and strains belonging to different pathovars. Many strains of E. coli, which can cause mild or ...

Analysis of the Virulence of Uropathogenic Escherichia coli Strain CFT073 in the Murine Urinary Tract
Authors:  Anna Waldhuber, Manoj Puthia, Andreas Wieser, Catharina Svanborg and Thomas Miethke , date: 02/05/2017, view: 2358, Q&A: 0
This urinary tract infection model was used to monitor the efficacy of a new virulence factor of the uropathogenic Escherichia coli strain CFT073 in vivo. The new virulence factor which we designated TIR-containing protein C (TcpC) ...

Preparation of Purified Gram-positive Bacterial Cell Wall and Detection in Placenta and Fetal Tissues
Authors:  Beth Mann, Lip Nam Loh, Geli Gao and Elaine Tuomanen, date: 12/05/2016, view: 2408, Q&A: 0
Cell wall is a complex biopolymer on the surface of all Gram-positive bacteria. During infection, cell wall is recognized by the innate immune receptor Toll-like receptor 2 causing intense inflammation and tissue damage. In animal models, cell wall ...
