    Abstract : Bacterial chromosomes are highly dynamic, continuously changing with respect to gene content and size via a number of processes, including deletions that result in gene loss. How deletions form and at what rates has been the focus of this thesis. In paper II we investigated how chromosomal location affects chromosomal deletion rates in S. READ MORE

  2. 2. The effects of internally expressed Contact-Dependent growth Inhibition (CDI) toxins in bacteria

    Author : Magnus Stårsta; Sanna Koskiniemi; Pierre Genevaux; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Bacteria, both pathogenic and non-pathogenic, have developed multiple forms of competition mechanisms to combat each other including, but not limited to, Contact-Dependent growth Inhibition (CDI) systems, Type VI Secretion Systems and the associated Rearrangement hotspot (Rhs) toxin system. These systems usually confers a great fitness advantage as they allow for precise delivery of toxic molecules into competing bacteria whilst sister cells are protected from auto-inhibition by producing a cognate immunity protein.

    Abstract : Contact-Dependent growth inhibition (CDI) was discovered in 2005 in the E. coli isolate EC93. Since then our knowledge of CDI systems and their impact on bacterial communities have increased exponentially. READ MORE
