  1. 1. Control of FtsZ-ring formation and cell division in Streptomyces venezuelae

    Author : Beer Sen; Molekylär cellbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Streptomyces; SepIVA; SepF-like proteins; divisome; Z-ring assembly; Cooperativity; cell division; FtsZ;

    Abstract : Cell division is essential for all life forms. In bacteria, this fundamental process is precisely orchestrated by a protein, FtsZ, the ancestral homolog of eukaroytic tubulin. READ MORE

  2. 2. Developmental Control of Cell Division in Streptomyces coelicolor

    Author : Nina Grantcharova; Klas Flärdh; Gerhart Wagner; Yves Brun; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Microbiology; FtsZ; cell division; Streptomyces; GFP; bacterial development; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology; Mikrobiologi;

    Abstract : Cell division in the Gram-positive bacterium Streptomyces coelicolor starts with the assembly of the tubulin homologue FtsZ into a cytokinetic ring (the Z ring) at the site of septation. In stark contrast to the binary fission of most bacteria, the syncytial hyphal cells of S. READ MORE

  3. 3. Fluorescence Studies of Cell Division in Escherichia coli

    Author : Bill Söderström; Gunnar von Heijne; Jie Xiao; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; E. coli; Cell division; FtsZ; Fluorescence microscopy; FRAP; Biophysics; biofysik;

    Abstract : In Escherichia coli the cell division is carried out by a large dynamic protein complex called the divisome. The divisome assembles in a two-step manner starting with the localization of the eukaryotic tubulin homologue FtsZ to the midcell. Together with other early arriving proteins FtsZ form an intermediate structure called the Z-ring. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cell cycle analysis of archaea

    Author : Andrzej Poplawski; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cell and molecular biology; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; Cell and molecular biology; Cell- och molekylärbiologi; mikrobiologi; Microbiology;

    Abstract : In my thesis, the cell cycle analysis of archaea and hyperthermophilic organisms is presented for the first time. Crenarchaea from the genus Sulfolobus were used as a model system. Plow cytometry and light microscopy were applied to investigate the timing and coordination of different cell cycle events. READ MORE

  5. 5. Bartonella Infections in Sweden: : Clinical Investigations and Molecular Epidemiology

    Author : Christian Ehrenborg; Martin Holmberg; Göran Friman; Eva Hjelm; Gunnar Sandström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Communicable diseases; Bartonella; clinical studies; molecular epidemiology; Infektionssjukdomar;

    Abstract : Characteristically, in infections that are caused by the zoonotic pathogen Bartonella naturally infected reservoir hosts are asymptomatic, where infected incidental, non-natural, hosts develop symptomatic disease. Cat-scratch disease (CSD) is a well known example. READ MORE
