Transformation of Thermus Species by Natural Competence
Authors:  Alba Blesa and José Berenguer, date: 11/20/2016, view: 3239, Q&A: 0
Many Thermus species harbour genomes scourged with horizontally transferred signatures. Thermus thermophilus (Tth) has been characterized as naturally competent. The transformation protocol described here is based on the ...
Cell-to-cell DNA Transfer among Thermus Species
Authors:  Alba Blesa and José Berenguer, date: 11/20/2016, view: 3373, Q&A: 0
The ability to transfer DNA via direct cell-to-cell contact-dependent process similar to conjugation has been described in Thermus thermophilus (Tth). Here, we detail the mating experiment protocol involving the lateral transfer of ...

Induction of Natural Competence in Genetically-modified Lactococcus lactis
Authors:  Joyce Mulder, Michiel Wels, Oscar P. Kuipers, Michiel Kleerebezem and Peter A. Bron, date: 07/05/2018, view: 347, Q&A: 0
Natural competence can be activated in Lactoccocus lactis subsp lactis and cremoris upon overexpression of ComX, a master regulator of bacterial competence. Herein, we demonstrate a method to activate bacterial competence ...
