Atradidymella muscivora gen. et sp. nov. (Pleosporales) and its anamorph Phoma muscivora sp. nov.: A new pleomorphic pathogen of boreal bryophytesDownload
During a survey of bryophilous fungi from boreal and montane habitats, 12 isolates of a hitherto unknown plant pathogenic member of the Pleosporales were recovered from Aulacomnium palustre , Hylocomium splendens , and Polytrichum juniperinum , and described as Atradidymella muscivora gen. et sp....
Acinetobacter baumannii remains a poorly understood, but very dangerous opportunistic pathogen. Though it lacks clear virulence traits expected of pathogens, it none the less poses a massive threat to the hospital system due to its inherent and acquired resistance to antibiotics, survival on...
Generation of a restriction minus enteropathogenic Escherichia coli E2348/69 strain that is efficiently transformed with large, low copy plasmidsDownload
Background Many microbes possess restriction-modification systems that protect them from parasitic DNA molecules. Unfortunately, the presence of a restriction-modification system in a given microbe also hampers genetic analysis. Although plasmids can be successfully conjugated into the...
Identification of Signaling Pathways Dysregulated during Scrapie Pathogenesis using a Kinomics ApproachDownload
Prion diseases are a family of chronic lethal neurodegenerative diseases that affect humans and animals. The conversion of the cellular prion protein (PrPC) to abnormal conformations (PrPSc) is accepted to be required for pathogenesis. However, the molecular mechanisms whereby PrP conversion...
Atradidymella muscivora (Pleosporales) is a bryophyte pathogen that infects the mosses Aulacomnium palustre , Hylocomium splendens , and Polytrichum juniperinum . Light and scanning electron microscopy and extracellular enzyme production were used to characterize the interactions between this...
Periodic solutions and bistability in a model for cytotoxic T-lymphocyte (CTL) response to human T-cell lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I)Download
HTLV-I is the first discovered human retrovirus and a causative agent of both adult T-cell leukemia (ATL) and HTLV-I-associated myelopathy (or tropical spastic paraparesis) (HAM/TSP). Previous models have been successful in providing insight into the progression of HTLV-I infection. The...
Proliferative Signals Regulate Hemocyte Development and Intestinal Immunity in Drosophila melanogaster.Download
The innate immune system is an ancient line of resistance against intrusive microbial threats. This system integrates cellular, humoral, and barrier defenses to generate a protective immune response. These divisions are indispensable and conserved between Drosophila and mammals. Hemocytes are the...
The LmSNF1 gene is required for pathogenicity in the canola blackleg pathogen Leptosphaeria maculansDownload
Leptosphaeria maculans is a fungal pathogen causing blackleg in canola. Its virulence has been attributed, among other factors, to the activity of hydrolytic cell wall degrading enzymes (CWDEs). Studies on the pathogenicity function of CWDEs in plant pathogenic fungi have been difficult due to...
