The virulence plasmid of Yersinia, an anti-host genome
(American Society for Microbiology, 1998-12)
Invasive pathogenic bacteria have in common the capacity to overcome the defense mechanisms of their animal host and to proliferate in its tissues. They each have their own life-style and target organs and cause a variety ...
Role of alginate lyase in cell detachment of Pseudomonas aeruginosa
(American Society for Microbiology, 1994-07)
The exopolysaccharide alginate of Pseudomonas aeruginosa was shown to be important in determining the degree of cell detachment from an agar surface. Nonmucoid strain 8822 gave rise to 50-fold more sloughed cells than ...
LcrG is required for efficient translocation of Yersinia Yop effector proteins into eukaryotic cells
(American Society for Microbiology, 1998-06)
Extracellular Yersinia disables the immune system of its host by injecting effector Yop proteins into host cells. We show that a Yersinia enterocolitica nonpolar lcrG mutant is severely impaired in the translocation of ...
