Studies on the Evolution of Aromatic Beta-Glucoside Catabolic Systems under Different Stress Conditions in Escherichia coli
The genetic systems involved in the utilisation of aromatic β-glucosides in E. coli consist of the bgl, asc, and chb operons and the locus bglA encoding phospho-β-glucosidase A. The bgl and asc operons are known as cryptic ...
Investigations on the Possible Role of Aromatic β-Glucoside Metabolism in Self-Defense in Enterobacteriaceae
Bacteria are ubiquitous in all ecosystems and are often challenged by multiple stresses such as extreme temperatures, high salt concentrations, nutrient limitation, pH variations, radiation, predation and the presence of ...
Metallophosphoesterases In Mycobacteria Enigmatic Roles In Regulating Mycobacterial Physiology
Pathogenic bacteria such as M.tuberculosis have evolved several mechanisms to aid their intracellular survival and subvert host defenses. One of the contributing factors is thought to be the production and secretion of ...
Moonlighting Functions of the Rv0805 Phosphodiesterase from Mycobacterium Tuberculosis
All organisms must sense and respond to their environment in order to survive. The processes that allow a living cell to sense changes in its environment, and respond appropriately are collectively referred to as ‘signal ...
Investigations On The Role Of The Global Regulator H-NS In The Survival Of Escherichia Coli In Stationary-Phase
Studies on stationary phase cultures of microorganisms in the laboratory have helped us understand the genetic and physiological basis of adaptation in their natural habitats. Stasis or decline in bacterial populations due ...
