Functional and comparative characterization of Saccharomyces cerevisiae RVB1 and RVB2 genes with bacterial Ruv homologues
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2007-06)
Expression of yeast RuvB-like gene analogues of bacterial RuvB is self-regulated, as episomal overexpression of RVB1 and RVB2 decreases the expression of their chromosomal copies by 85%. Heterozygosity for either gene ...
Bacterial spot on pepper caused by Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria, Race 2, from the south coast of Puerto RicoMancha bacteriana del pimiento causada por Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria, raza 2, en la costa sur de Puerto Rico
(University of Puerto Rico Mayagüez Campus Agricultural Experiment Station, 1995)
Soil bacterial communities remain altered after 30 years of agriculture abandonment in Pampa grasslands
Old fields are spreading in the world because of agriculture abandonment, and they show a persistence of exotic plant species with little recovery towards the original vegetation composition. Soil biota may also differ ...
Grass dominance drives rhizospheric bacterial communities in a desertic shrub and grassy steppe highland
(Elsevier Gmbh, 2017-05)
The rhizosphere is a dynamic root-soil interface characterized by interactions between soil microorganisms and roots. These interactions can be potential drivers of the structure of the plant and bacterial communities in ...
KatE from the bacterial plant pathogen Ralstonia solanacearum is a monofunctional catalase controlled by HrpG that plays a major role in bacterial survival to hydrogen peroxide
(Frontiers Media, 2020-07)
Ralstonia solanacearum is the causative agent of bacterial wilt disease on a wide range of plant species. Besides the numerous bacterial activities required for host invasion, those involved in the adaptation to the plant ...
Bacillus subtilis EA-CB0575 genome reveals clues for plant growth promotion and potential for sustainable agriculture
Bacillus subtilis is a remarkably diverse bacterial species that displays many ecological functions. Given its genomic diversity, the strain Bacillus subtilis EA-CB0575, isolated from the rhizosphere of a banana plant, was ...
Power analysis for real-time PCR quantification of genes in activated sludge and analysis of the variability introduced by DNA extraction
(American Society for Microbiology, 2003-11)
The aims of this study were to determine the power of discrimination of the real-time PCR assay for monitoring fluctuations in microbial populations within activated sludge and to identify sample processing points where ...
Type VI secretion system in pathogenic escherichia coli: structure, role in virulence, and acquisition
(Frontiers Media, 2019-08)
Bacterial pathogens utilize a myriad of mechanisms to invade mammalian hosts, damage tissue sites, and evade the immune system. One essential strategy of Gram-negative bacteria is the secretion of virulence factors through ...
GeM-Pro: a tool for genome functional mining and microbial profiling
Gem-Pro is a new tool for gene mining and functional profiling of bacteria. It initially identifies homologous genes using BLAST and then applies three filtering steps to select orthologous gene pairs. The first one uses ...
Bacterial taxa abundance pattern in an industrial wastewater treatment system determined by the full rRNA cycle approach
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2007-07)
The description of the diversity and structure of microbial communities through quantification of the constituent populations is one of the major objectives in environmental microbiology. The implications of models for ...
