Transformation of Thermus Species by Natural Competence
Authors:  Alba Blesa and José Berenguer, date: 11/20/2016, view: 7965, 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: 7739, 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: 2344, 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: 4899, 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 ...

An Inexpensive Imaging Platform to Record and Quantitate Bacterial Swarming
Authors:  Weijie Chen, Sridhar Mani and Jay X. Tang, date: 09/20/2021, view: 493, Q&A: 0

Bacterial swarming refers to a rapid spread, with coordinated motion, of flagellated bacteria on a semi-solid surface (Harshey, 2003). There has been extensive study on this particular mode of motility because of its interesting biological and

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: 958, 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
