  • Eubacterial SpoVG Homologs Constitute a New Family of Site-Specific DNA-Binding Proteins 

    Jutras, Brandon L.; Chenail, Alicia M.; Rowland, Christi L.; Carroll, Dustin; Miller, M. Clarke; Bykowski, Tomasz; Stevenson, Brian (PLOS, 2013-06-20)
    A site-specific DNA-binding protein was purified from Borrelia burgdorferi cytoplasmic extracts, and determined to be a member of the highly conserved SpoVG family. This is the first time a function has been attributed to ...
  • BpaB, a novel protein encoded by the Lyme disease spirochete’s cp32 prophages, binds to erp Operator 2 DNA 

    Burns, Logan H.; Adams, Claire A.; Riley, Sean P.; Jutras, Brandon L.; Bowman, Amy; Chenail, Alicia M.; Cooley, Anne E.; Haselhorst, Laura A.; Moore, Alisha M.; Babb, Kelly; Fried, Michael G.; Stevenson, Brian (Oxford University Press, 2010)
    Borrelia burgdorferi produces Erp outer surface proteins throughout mammalian infection, but represses their synthesis during colonization of vector ticks. A DNA region 50 of the start of erp transcription, Operator 2, was ...

(Springer Nature, 2016-02)
    Ticks transmit more pathogens to humans and animals than any other arthropod. We describe the 2.1 Gbp nuclear genome of the tick, Ixodes scapularis (Say), which vectors pathogens that cause Lyme disease, human granulocytic ...
