Bond strength of composite resin to pulp capping biomaterials after application of three different bonding systems.

J Dent Res Dent Clin Dent Prospects 2013 30;7(3):152-6. Epub 2013 Aug 30.

Associate Professor, Department of Operative Dentistry, Faculty of Dentistry, Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Legionella bozemanae synthesizes phosphatidylcholine from exogenous choline.

Microbiol Res 2011 Feb 24;166(2):87-98. Epub 2010 Mar 24.

Department of Genetics and Microbiology, Institute of Microbiology and Biotechnology, Maria Curie-Sklodowska University, Akademicka St. 19, PL 20-033 Lublin, Poland.

The phospholipid class and fatty acid composition of Legionella bozemanae were determined using thin-layer chromatography, gas-liquid chromatography, and matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry. Phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanolamine, and diphosphatidylglycerol were the predominant phospholipids, while phosphatidyl-N-monomethylethanolamine, phosphatidylglycerol, and phosphatidyl-N,N-dimethylethanolamine were present at low concentrations. With the use of the LC/MS technique, PC16:0/15:0, PC17:/15:0, and PE16:1/15:0 were shown to be the dominant phospholipid constituents, which may be taxonomically significant. Read More

Departamento de Biología Molecular, FCEFQyN, Universidad Nacional de Río Cuarto, Córdoba, Argentina.

Phosphatidylcholine, the major phospholipid in eukaryotes, is found in rhizobia and in many other bacteria interacting with eukaryotic hosts. Phosphatidylcholine has been shown to be required for a successful interaction of Bradyrhizobium japonicum USDA 110 with soybean roots. Our aim was to study the role of bacterial phosphatidylcholine in the Bradyrhizobium-peanut (Arachis hypogaea) symbiosis. Read More

Expression and physiological relevance of Agrobacterium tumefaciens phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis genes.

J Bacteriol 2009 Jan 31;191(1):365-74. Epub 2008 Oct 31.

Microbial Biology, Ruhr-University Bochum, Bochum, Germany.

Phosphatidylcholine (PC), or lecithin, is the major phospholipid in eukaryotic membranes, whereas only 10% of all bacteria are predicted to synthesize PC. In Rhizobiaceae, including the phytopathogenic bacterium Agrobacterium tumefaciens, PC is essential for the establishment of a successful host-microbe interaction. A. Read More

Virulence of Agrobacterium tumefaciens requires phosphatidylcholine in the bacterial membrane.

Mol Microbiol 2006 Nov 29;62(3):906-15. Epub 2006 Sep 29.

Lehrstuhl für Biologie der Mikroorganismen, Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Bochum, Germany.

Phosphatidylcholine (PC, lecithin) has long been considered a solely eukaryotic membrane lipid. Only a minority of all bacteria is able to synthesize PC. The plant-transforming bacterium Agrobacterium tumefaciens encodes two potential PC forming enzymes, a phospholipid N-methyltransferase (PmtA) and a PC synthase (Pcs). Read More

Synthesis of phosphatidylcholine, a typical eukaryotic phospholipid, is necessary for full virulence of the intracellular bacterial parasite Brucella abortus.

Cell Microbiol 2006 Aug;8(8):1322-35

Departamento de Microbiología, Universidad de Navarra, Pamplona, Spain.

Phosphatidylcholine (PC) is a typical eukaryotic phospholipid absent from most prokaryotes. Thus, its presence in some intracellular bacteria is intriguing as it may constitute host mimicry. The role of PC in Brucella abortus was examined by generating mutants in pcs (BApcs) and pmtA (BApmtA), which encode key enzymes of the two bacterial PC biosynthetic routes, the choline and methyl-transferase pathways.

Brucella abortus synthesizes phosphatidylcholine from choline provided by the host.

J Bacteriol 2006 Mar;188(5):1929-34

Instituto de Investigaciones Biotecnológicas, Universidad de Gral. San Martín (IIB-UNSAM), Av. Gral. Paz 5445, INTI, Ed. 24, 1650 San Martín, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The Brucella cell envelope is characterized by the presence of phosphatidylcholine (PC), a common phospholipid in eukaryotes that is rare in prokaryotes. Studies on the composition of Brucella abortus 2308 phospholipids revealed that the synthesis of PC depends on the presence of choline in the culture medium, suggesting that the methylation biosynthetic pathway is not functional. Phospholipid composition of pmtA and pcs mutants indicated that in Brucella, PC synthesis occurs exclusively via the phosphatidylcholine synthase pathway. Read More
