Endolysin Expression, Purification and Activity Determination by Zymography
酶谱法进行细胞内溶素表达、纯化和活性测定

作者:Alexander B. Westbye, Paul C. Fogg and John Thomas Beatty日期:08/20/2014,浏览量:13041,Q&A: 0
Endolysins are peptidoglycan-degrading (muralytic) enzymes produced by many bacteriophages for cell lysis of the host bacterium. The enzymatic activity of muralytic enzymes can be assayed qualitatively using a zymogram containing incorporated ...

Quantification of Bacterial Twitching Motility in Dense Colonies Using Transmitted Light Microscopy and Computational Image Analysis
利用透射光学显微镜技术和计算机图像定量分析密集菌落中的细菌蹭行运动
作者:Benjamin Smith, Jianfang Li, Matteo Metruccio, Stephanie Wan, David Evans and Suzanne Fleiszig日期:04/20/2018,浏览量:5152,Q&A: 0
A method was developed to allow the quantification and mapping of relative bacterial twitching motility in dense samples, where tracking of individual bacteria was not feasible. In this approach, movies of bacterial films were acquired using ...
