Cell-envelope remodeling as a determinant of phenotypic antibacterial tolerance in mycobacterium tuberculosis
The mechanisms that lead to phenotypic antibacterial tolerance in bacteria remain poorly understood. We investigate whether changes in NaCl concentration toward physiologically higher values affect antibacterial efficacy ...
Structural associations between organelle membranes in nectary parenchyma cells
Main conclusion: The close association between membranes and organelles, and the intense chloroplast remodeling in parenchyma cells of extrafloral nectaries occurred only at the secretion time and suggest a relationship ...
Daptomycin-resistant enterococcus faecalis diverts the antibiotic molecule from the division septum and remodels cell membrane phospholipids
(American Society for Microbiology, 2013)
Treatment of multidrug-resistant enterococci has become a challenging clinical problem in hospitals around the world due to the lack of reliable therapeutic options. Daptomycin (DAP), a cell membrane-targeting cationic ...
The PmrAB system-inducing conditions control both lipid A remodeling and O-antigen length distribution, influencing the Salmonella typhimurium-host interactions
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 2012-11)
The Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium lipopolysaccharide consisting of covalently linked lipid A, non-repeating core oligosaccharide, and the O-antigen polysaccharide is the most exposed component of the cell envelope. ...
