An anomalous type IV secretion system in Rickettsia is evolutionarily conserved
(Public Library of Science, 2009-03-12)
Background: Bacterial type IV secretion systems (T4SSs) comprise a diverse transporter family functioning in conjugation, competence, and effector molecule (DNA and/or protein) translocation. Thirteen genome sequences from ...
Louse- and flea-borne rickettsioses: biological and genomic analyses
(EDP SCIENCES, 2009-03)
In contrast to 15 or more validated and/or proposed tick-borne spotted fever group species, only three named medically important rickettsial species are associated with insects. These insect-borne rickettsiae are comprised ...
PIG-the pathogen interaction gateway
Protein-protein interactions (PPIs) play a vital role in initiating infection in a number of pathogens. Identifying which interactions allow a pathogen to infect its host can help us to understand methods of pathogenesis ...
Systems Integration of Biodefense Omics Data for Analysis of Pathogen-Host Interactions and Identification of Potential Targets
(Public Library of Science, 2009-09-25)
The NIAID (National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases) Biodefense Proteomics program aims to identify targets for potential vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics for agents of concern in bioterrorism, including ...
Temporal Controls of the Asymmetric Cell Division Cycle in Caulobacter crescentus
The asymmetric cell division cycle of Caulobacter crescentus is orchestrated by an elaborate gene-protein regulatory network, centered on three major control proteins, DnaA, GcrA and CtrA. The regulatory network is cast ...
