  1. 1. Small RNAs, Big Consequences : Post-transcriptional Regulation and Adaptive Immunity in Bacteria

    Author : Mirthe Hoekzema; Gerhart E. H. Wagner; Magnus Lundgren; Kai Papenfort; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; small RNA; sRNA; non-coding RNA; Hfq; gene regulation; post-transcriptional regulation; biofilm; OmrA; OmrB; toxin-antitoxin; TisB; IstR-1; Persisters; CRISPR-Cas; CRISPR-Cas adaptation reporter; Escherichia coli; Biologi med inriktning mot mikrobiologi; Biology with specialization in Microbiology;

    Abstract : It is nowadays widely accepted that non-coding RNAs play important roles in post-transcriptional regulation of genes in all kingdoms of life. In bacteria, the largest group of RNA regulators are the small RNAs (sRNAs). READ MORE

  2. 2. Functional studies of Escherichia coli stringent response factor RelA

    Author : Ievgen Dzhygyr; Vasili Hauryliuk; Jörgen Johansson; Greg Bokinsky; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Stringent response; RelA; p ppGpp; ribosome; tRNA; metabolism regulation; allosteric regulation; translation; nutritional stress; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : RelA is a ribosome associated multi-domain enzyme, which plays a crucial role in adaptation ofEscherichia coli to nutritional stress as such as amino acid deficiency. It detects the deficiency of aminoacids in the cell by monitoring whether a tRNA at the acceptor site (A-site) of the ribosome is chargedwith amino acid or not. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bacterial colonization of the neonatal bowel and ileal pouch with focus on E. coli

    Author : Anna Östblom; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; E. coli; persistens; intestinal microbiota; colonization; ileal pouch; persistence; virulence factor genes;

    Abstract : The colonic microbiota is a source of inflammatogenic and potentially pathogenic bacteria, but also a source of immune maturation signals to the infant. Here, we have investigated the normal colonic microbiota, with focus on E. coli in Swedish and Pakistani newborn infants, as well as the microbiota of the ileo-anal pouch in colectomized patients.
