Analysis of bifidobacterial evolution using a multilocus approach.
Bifidobacteria represent one of the most numerous groups of bacteria found in the gastrointestinal tract of humans and animals. In man, gastrointestinal bifidobacteria are associated with healthExpand

Genetic Characterization of the Bifidobacterium breve UCC 2003 hrcA Locus
ABSTRACT The bacterial heat shock response is characterized by the elevated expression of a number of chaperone complexes and transcriptional regulators, including the DnaJ and the HrcA proteins.Expand

Extent and Variation of Phage-Borne Bacterial 16S rRNA Gene Sequences in Wastewater Environments
ABSTRACT Phage metagenomes isolated from wastewater over a 12-month period were analyzed. The results suggested that various strains of Proteobacteria, Bacteroidetes, and other phyla are likely toExpand

Analysis of transduction in wastewater bacterial populations by targeting the phage-derived 16S rRNA gene sequences.
Bacterial 16S rRNA genes transduced by bacteriophages were identified and analyzed in order to estimate the extent of the bacteriophage-mediated horizontal gene transfer in the wastewaterExpand

Genomes of "phiKMV-like viruses" of Pseudomonas aeruginosa contain localized single-strand interruptions.
The "phiKMV-like viruses" comprise an important genus of T7 related phages infecting Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The genomes of these bacteriophages have localized single-strand interruptions (nicks), aExpand

Evidence of bacteriophage-mediated horizontal transfer of bacterial 16S rRNA genes in the viral metagenome of the marine sponge Hymeniacidon perlevis.
Marine sponges have never been directly examined with respect to the presence of viruses or their potential involvement in horizontal gene transfer. Here we demonstrate for the first time, to ourExpand
