  1. 1. Substrate control of community composition and functional adaptation in marine bacterioplankton

    Author : Julie Dinasquet; Lasse Riemann; Edward F. DeLong; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; marine microbial ecology; bacterioplankton; community composition; functional adaptation; dissolved organic carbon; bottom-up and top down factors; ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi; food-webs; Southern-Ocean; Antarctica; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology; Akvatisk ekologi; Aquatic Ecology;

    Abstract : A drop of sea-water is teeming with a million of bacteria, on which pelagic food-webs and biogeochemical cycles depend. These bacteria thrive on a wide range of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) compounds produced through biotic and abiotic processes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Flagellates in the marine microbial food web : the ecology of a mixotrophic nanoflagellate, Ochromonas sp

    Author : Agneta Andersson-Nordström; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Microbial food web; flagellates; Ochromonas sp.; mixotrophy; size- selective grazing; remineralisation; excretion of DFAA;

    Abstract : Nanoflagellates were found to be abundant in a coastal area of the northern Bothnian Sea. The maximum concentration of nanoflagellates, approximately 8000 cells ml-1, was observed in July, coinciding with a decrease in the abundance of cyanobacteria. READ MORE

  3. 3. Roles of membrane vesicles in bacterial pathogenesis

    Author : Svitlana Vdovikova; Sun Nyunt Wai; Richard Lundmark; Ann-Beth Jonsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Membrane vesicles; autophagy; pore-forming toxin; pore formation; Listeria monocytogenes; Vibrio cholerae; virulence factor; PrtV protease; listeriolysin O; V. cholerae cytolysin; mikrobiologi; Microbiology; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology;

    Abstract : The production of membranous vesicles is observed to occur among organisms from all domains of the tree of life spanning prokaryotes (bacteria, archaea) and eukaryotes (plants, animals and fungi). Bacterial release of membrane-derived vesicles (MVs) has been studied most extensively in cases of Gram-negative species and implicating their outer membrane in formation of extracellular MVs.

  4. 4. Effect of environmental factors on bacterioplankton community composition, diversity and functionality

    Author : Johanna Sjöstedt; Lasse Riemann; Silke Langenheder; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; marine microbiology; bacterioplankton; community composition; diversity; functionality; environmental factors; disturbance; distribution; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology; Akvatisk ekologi; Aquatic Ecology;

    Abstract : The ocean covers more than 70 % of the Earth surface and represents the largest ecosystem on Earth. Bacteria are an important part of the marine food web not only in remineralisation but also since they utilize dissolved organic matter (DOM) and make the energy available to higher trophic levels.

  5. 5. Controlling virulence in Yersinia pseudotuberculosis through accumulation of phosphorylated CpxR

    Author : Edvin Thanikkal; Matthew Francis; Andrew Darwin; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Y. pseudotuberculosis; CpxA; CpxR; invasin; RovA; RovM; T3SS; virulence; transcriptional regulation; molekylärbiologi; Molecular Biology; mikrobiologi; Microbiology;

    Abstract : Like many Gram-negative bacteria, the food-borne pathogen Yersinia pseudotuberculosis harbours different regulatory mechanisms to maintain an intact bacterial envelope especially during exposure to extracytoplasmic stress (ECS). The CpxA-CpxR two component regulatory system is one such ECS-responsive regulatory mechanism. READ MORE
