  1. 1. Functional characterization of cellulose and chitin synthase genes in Oomycetes

    Author : Johanna Fugelstad; Vincent Bulone; Carol Munro; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cellulose biosynthesis; chitin biosynthesis; cellulose synthase gene; chitin synthase gene; Oomycetes; Phytophthora infestans; Saprolegnia monoica; pleckstrin homology domain; Microbiology; Mikrobiologi;

    Abstract : Some species of Oomycetes are well studied pathogens that cause considerable economical losses in the agriculture and aquaculture industries. Currently, there are no chemicals available that are environmentally friendly and at the same time efficient Oomycete inhibitors. READ MORE

  2. 2. Characterization and persistence of potential human pathogenic vibrios in aquatic environments

    Author : Betty Collin; Högskolan Kristianstad; Gothenburg University; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Vibrio cholerae; Vibrio parahaemolyticus; Mozambique; Sweden; molluscs; occurrence; persistence; sediment; TCBS; PCR; PhP; antibiotic resistance; microbiology; Vibrio spp.; Mytilus edulis;

    Abstract : Vibrio spp., natural inhabitants of aquatic environments, are one of the most common causes of bacterial gastroenteritis in the world, being spread to humans via the ingestion of seafood, contaminated drinking water or exposure to seawater. The majority of Vibrio spp. are avirulent, but certain strains may sporadically be human pathogenic. READ MORE

  3. 3. Characterization of Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli water isolates

    Author : Anna Nilsson; Hilpi Rautelin; Astrid Skarp; Cecilia Johansson; Mikael Skurnik; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; C. jejuni; C. coli; C.coli clade 2; C. coli clade 3; waterborne pathogens; whole genome sequencing; water survival; pathogenic potential; phenotypical identification; Klinisk bakteriologi; Clinical Bacteriology; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Campylobacter jejuni and C. coli are together the most common cause of bacterial gastroenteritis in the European Union. Campylobacter can be transmitted to humans via contaminated water, but it is largely unknown how these bacteria survive in water. READ MORE

  4. 4. Characterization of Bacterial Biofilms for Wastewater Treatment

    Author : Sofia Andersson; Gunnel Dalhammar; Bo Mattiasson; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; biofilm; extracellular polymeric substances; exopolysaccharides; interspecies interactions; wastewater treatment; denitrification; phosphorus removal; Microbiology; Mikrobiologi;

    Abstract : Research performed at the Division of Environmental Microbiology has over the last years resulted in the isolation of possible bacterial key-organisms with efficient nutrient removal properties (Comamonas denitrificans, Brachymonas denitrificans, Aeromonas hydrophila). Effective use of these organisms for enhanced nutrient removal in wastewater treatment applications requires the strains to be retained, to proliferate and to maintain biological activity within theprocess.

  5. 5. 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
