radiata are likely acquired from the environment and are not transovarially transmitted, with the possible exception of the Caulobacter
Additional new databases include those for Pseudomonas aeruginosa and the result of a joint effort with Stanford University sponsored by the Department of Energy's Microbial Cell Project, Caulobacter
The researchers identified crescentin while studying Caulobacter
crescentus, which comes in curved or helical forms, depending on its length.
This twin effect of hydrodynamic interaction and Brownian motion governs the circular swimming patterns of Caulobacter
and many other microorganisms.
She and a collaborator, chemist Stephen Benkovic, PhD, at Pennsylvania State University, started a biotechnology company in Palo Alto called Anacor Pharmaceuticals to test and develop unique boron-based antibiotics and antifungals designed after identifying critical nodes in the Caulobacter
cell cycle control circuitry.
Shapiro, Alley, and Maddock then became curious about the location of the chemoreceptor protein in Caulobacter
as well as E.
Washington, Sep 7 (ANI): Researchers at the University of British Columbia have turned the bacterium Caulobacter
crescentus into a protein production factory by adapting a single protein on its surface, thus making useful proteins that can act as vaccines and drugs.
The crescent-shaped Caulobacter
needs crescentin or it will straighten out.
They hope to use the substance from Caulobacter
crescentus in operations - if they can stop it from sticking to all it touches.
The bacterium Caulobacter
cres-centus begins its life as a mobile, tail-sporting cell.
