  1. 1. Coiled coil Cytoskeleton in Bacterial Cell Architecture Studies of Growth and Development in Streptomyces

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Sonchita Bagchi; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Coiled coil proteins; Bacterial cytoskeleton; Differentiation; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Cell and molecular biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Cell- och molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Bacterial cytoskeleton is an exciting and relatively new field of research. Recent findings have proven that microbes are well-organized and neatly structured organisms. READ MORE

  2. 2. Coiled coil cytoskeleton in cell architecture and osmotic stress response in Streptomyces

    University dissertation from Department of Biology, Lund University

    Author : Katsuya Fuchino; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Coiled coil protein; Streptomyces coelicolor; polar growth; osmotic-stress response; turgor;

    Abstract : Coiled coil proteins emerge as important determinants of bacterial cellular organization. Several such proteins display properties characteristic to metazoan intermediate filament (IF) proteins, and are therefore designated bacterial IF-like proteins. READ MORE

  3. 3. Temperature-dependent structure and function of group A streptococcal M proteins

    University dissertation from Tommy Cedervall, Nobelvägen 60F, 214 33 MALMÖ, Sweden

    Author : Tommy Cedervall; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Microbiology; plasma protein; fibrinogen; temperature; hydrophobicity; coiled-coil; Ig-binding; M protein; group A streptococcus; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : Temperature-dependent structure and function of group A streptococcal M proteins.This thesis describes the temperature-dependent structure of the members in the group A streptococcal M protein family. M proteins are cell-surface proteins that are important for the bacterial virulence and bind to a diverse set of human plasma proteins. READ MORE

  4. 4. YopD translocator function in Yersinia pseudotuberculosis type III secretion

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Tiago R. D. Costa; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Y. pseudotuberculosis; T3SS; translocon; YopD; coiled-coil; effector delivery; regulation; virulence; mikrobiologi; Microbiology;

    Abstract : Type III secretion systems (T3SS) are a common feature of Gram-negative bacteria, allowing them to inject anti-host effectors into the interior of infected eukaryotic cells. By this mechanism, these virulence factors help the bacteria to modulate eukaryotic cell function in its favor and subvert host innate immunity. READ MORE

  5. 5. Studies on the coiled-coil protein TlpA in salmonella : A thermosensing transcription autoregulator

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Author : Reini Hurme; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1996]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; coiled-coilgene regulationrepressorthermoregulationSalmonella;

    Abstract : Studies on the Coiled-Coil Protein TlpA in Salmonella: A Thermosensing Transcription Autoregulator The coiled-coil motif is composed of amino acid heptad repeats with hydrophobic or apolar residues at conserved positions. Such repeats are responsible for the apolar stripe that is buried inside the coiled-coil structure formed upon coiling of two (or more) alpha-helical chains about each other. READ MORE
