Department of Biosciences, University of Oslo, Blindernveien 31, 0371, Oslo, Norway.

Trimeric autotransporter adhesins (TAAs) are a subset of a larger protein family called the type V secretion systems. They are localized on the cell surface of Gram-negative bacteria, function as mediators of attachment to inorganic surfaces and host cells, and thus include important virulence factors. Yersinia adhesin A (YadA) from Yersinia enterocolitica is a prototypical TAA that is used extensively to study the structure and function of the type Vc secretion system. Read More

Institute of Medical Microbiology, Virology and Hygiene, University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE), Hamburg, Germany.

Type III secretion systems (T3SSs) are essential virulence factors of numerous bacterial pathogens. Upon host cell contact the T3SS machinery-also named injectisome-assembles a pore complex/translocon within host cell membranes that serves as an entry gate for the bacterial effectors. Whether and how translocons are physically connected to injectisome needles, whether their phenotype is related to the level of effector translocation and which target cell factors trigger their formation have remained unclear.

A versatile remote control system for functional expression of bacterial virulence genes based on the tetA promoter.

Int J Med Microbiol 2019 Jan 16;309(1):54-65. Epub 2018 Nov 16.

Abteilung Mikrobiologie, Fachbereich Biologie/Chemie, Universität Osnabrück, Barbarastr. 11, 49076, Osnabrück, Germany. Electronic address:

The expression of bacterial virulence factors is controlled in response to host or environmental factors and most virulence genes are not expressed under laboratory conditions. Investigations of molecular structures and cellular functions of bacterial virulence factors demand systems for experimentally controlled expression. We describe a simple and robust system that is based on the tetA promoter and the cognate repressor TetR. Read More

Discovering RNA-Based Regulatory Systems for Virulence.

Front Cell Infect Microbiol 2018 25;8:378. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

Department of Molecular Infection Biology, Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research, Braunschweig, Germany.

The genus includes three human pathogenic species, , the causative agent of the bubonic and pneumonic plague, and enteric pathogens and that cause a number of gut-associated diseases. Over the past years a large repertoire of RNA-based regulatory systems has been discovered in these pathogens using different RNA-seq based approaches. Among them are several conserved or species-specific RNA-binding proteins, regulatory and sensory RNAs as well as various RNA-degrading enzymes. Read More

A novel chemical lysis method for maximum release of DNA from difficult-to-lyse bacteria.

Microb Pathog 2019 Jan 8;126:292-297. Epub 2018 Nov 8.

DNA Genotek Inc., 3000 - 500 Palladium Drive, Ottawa, ON, K2V 1C2, Canada.

Molecular detection of microorganisms requires releasing DNA from cells. However, since certain microbial organisms are refractory to lysis by chemical or enzymatic methods, mechanical lysis by bead-beating is typically employed to disrupt difficult-to-lyse microbes. A newly developed chemical lysis method called sporeLYSE enables release of DNA from difficult-to-lyse microbes without bead-beating. Read More

Flagellar motility plays important role in Biofilm formation of Bacillus cereus and Yersinia enterocolitica.

Pak J Pharm Sci 2018 Sep;31(5(Supplementary)):2047-2052

Department of Zoology, Govt. College University, Lahore, Pakistan.

Bacteria live either independently as planktonic cells or in organized surface associated colonies called as biofilms. Biofilms play an important role in increased pathogenesis of bacteria and it is assumed that motility is one of the contributing factors towards biofilm initiation. This study was planned to identify the role of flagella in biofilm formation by constructing flagellated (wild type) and physically disrupted variants (non-motile). Read More

Ethnopharmacological Relevance: In Mexico, plants are an important element of traditional medicine, and many are considered part of Mexican cultural heritage from prehispanic and colonial times. Nevertheless, relatively few systematic scientific studies have been conducted to fully characterize the chemical composition and pharmacological activities of Mexican medicinal plants. Acacia farnesiana is used in Mexican traditional medicine to treat dysentery and tuberculosis and therefore could have bioactive compounds that may explain its traditional use. Read More
