Preparation and Analysis of Crude Autolytic Enzyme Extracts from Staphylococcus aureus
Authors:  Filipa Vaz and Sérgio R. Filipe, date: 12/20/2015, view: 11745, Q&A: 0
The metabolism of the cell surface during bacterial cell division involves synthesis and degradation of peptidoglycan (PGN), the major component of the bacterial cell wall. Bacteria have to ensure that their surface remains capable of withstanding ...

Tracking the Subcellular Localization of Surface Proteins in Staphylococcus aureus by Immunofluorescence Microscopy
Authors:  Salvatore J. Scaffidi, Mac A. Shebes and Wenqi Yu, date: 05/20/2021, view: 4371, Q&A: 0

Surface proteins of Staphylococcus aureus and other Gram-positive bacteria play essential roles in bacterial colonization and host-microbe interactions. Surface protein precursors containing a YSIRK/GXXS signal peptide are translocated across the
