Verotoxigenic Escherichia coli (VTEC) pose a risk for foodborne illness that can lead to death. Thermal food preservation to inactivate VTEC also alters food quality. High hydrostatic pressure (HHP) processing has been adopted by the food industry as an alternative to thermal preservation....
Towards the microbial production of a switchable solvent by using the enzyme indoleamine N-methyltransferaseDownload
Switchable solvents are a novel class of chemicals that are characterized with the ability to reversibly switch specific properties with the addition/removal of a trigger. For instance, a solution of low ionic strength can become one of high ionic strength, and vice versa. Switchable solvents...
Complex II, or succinate dehydrogenase, is a vital component of aerobic life. Its function is critical for both the tricarboxylic acid cycle and the mitochondrial respiratory chain since it catalyzes the oxidation of succinate to fumarate, liberating two electrons that feed into the lipid-soluble...
The Cpx envelope stress response of Escherichia coli regulates and is regulated by the small RNA RprADownload
When bacteria sense changes in their environment, they adapt by altering the expression of their genes in such a way that accommodates the change. To do this, bacterial cells can modulate the activity of their genes at either the level of transcription, or at the post-transcriptional level....
Molecular Mechanisms Used by Auxiliary Regulator NlpE to Signal the Cpx Envelope Stress Response in Escherichia coliDownload
The Cpx two-component system senses and mediates adaptation to envelope stresses in Escherichia coli. NlpE is an outer membrane lipoprotein that senses surface adhesion and signals the Cpx pathway. This work focused on investigating the molecular mechanisms used by NlpE to signal the Cpx pathway...
Food processing, preservation and storage impose stresses on food bacteria. The maintenance of membrane lipid homeostasis through modification of phospholipids is a key strategy for bacteria to adapt environmental changes and survival in food. Mechanisms of adaptation are generally comparable...
Patterns of microbial host specificity have been observed at all host-related taxonomic levels, and several studies have demonstrated that Escherichia coli (E. coli) appears to display some level of host adaptation and specificity. Colonization of the gastrointestinal tract by E. coli largely...
