通过自然竞争法转化栖热菌属细胞
Authors:  Alba Blesa and José Berenguer, date: 11/20/2016, view: 7861, 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 ...
栖热菌属细胞间DNA的转移
Authors:  Alba Blesa and José Berenguer, date: 11/20/2016, view: 7633, 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 ...

Evaluation of Viable Cells in Pseudomonas aeruginosa Biofilms by Colony Count and Live/Dead Staining
Authors:  Magdalena Pezzoni, Ramón Augusto Pizarro and Cristina Susana Costa, date: 09/20/2020, view: 2232, Q&A: 0
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a human pathogen capable to form robust biofilms. P. aeruginosa biofilms represent a serious problem because of the adverse effects on human health and industry, from sanitary and economic points of view. ...

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: 4803, 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 ...

Isolation and Characterization of Membrane Vesicles from Lactobacillus Species
Authors:  Julie C. Caruana, Scott N. Dean and Scott A. Walper, date: 09/05/2021, view: 732, Q&A: 0

Throughout their life cycle, bacteria shed portions of their outermost membrane comprised of proteins, lipids, and a diversity of other biomolecules. These biological nanoparticles have been shown to have a range of highly diverse biological

Acid Hydrolysis for the Extraction of Archaeal Core Lipids and HPLC-MS Analysis
Authors:  Maxime Tourte, Philippe Schaeffer, Vincent Grossi and Philippe M. Oger, date: 08/20/2021, view: 348, Q&A: 0

Lipid membranes are essential cellular elements as they provide cellular integrity and selective permeability under a broad range of environmental settings upon cell growth. In particular, Archaea are commonly recognized for their tolerance to
