Insights into the Quorum Sensing Regulon of the Acidophilic Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans Revealed by Transcriptomic in the Presence of an Acyl Homoserine Lactone Superagonist Analog
While a functional quorum sensing system has been identified in the acidophilic chemolithoautotrophic Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans ATCC 23270T and shown to modulate cell adhesion to solid substrates, nothing is known ...
Molecular insights into quorum sensing in Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans bacteria via molecular modelling of the transcriptional regulator AfeR and of the binding mode of long-chain acyl homoserine lactones
Amino acid sequence alignments of the transcriptional regulator AfeR, which is involved in type 1 quorum sensing (QS) in Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans bacteria, with other acyl homoserine lactone (AHL)- dependent QS ...
A Lux-like Quorum Sensing System in the Extreme Acidophile Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans
(Sociedad de Biología de Chile, 2005)
Second Acyl Homoserine Lactone Production System in the Extreme Acidophile Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans
(AMER SOC MICROBIOLOGY, 2007-05)
The acidophilic proteobacterium Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans is involved in the industrial biorecovery of copper. It is found in acidic environments in biofilms and is important in the biogeochemical cycling of metals ...
Quorum sensing detected by atomic force microscopy imaging of corrals surrounding multicellular arrangement of bacteria
Connectivity of the glycocalyx covering of small communities of Acidithiobacillus ferrooxidans bacteria deposited on hydrophilic mica plates was imaged by atomic force microscopy. When part of the coverage was removed by ...
