It is predicted that the Prosthecobacter tubulins are monomeric, unlike eukaryotic α and β tubulinins, which form dimers and are therefore unlikely to form microtubule-like structures.

Environmental data revealed that the Woolooware Bay outbreaks occurred during a time of considerable environmental disturbance, with increased water temperatures, heavy rainfall, a toxic phytoplankton bloom and the presence of a pathogenic Vibrio sp.
The enigmatic planctomycetes may hold a key to the origins of methanogenesis and methylotrophy.

Phylogenetic analysis places the planctomycete sequences as distantly from their archaeal counterparts as from their proteobacterial counterparts, suggesting novel scenarios for the evolution of the C1 transfer functions in both methanogens and methylotrophs.

A hydrolysis probe quantitative PCR assay is developed and validated which universally detects and quantifies T. orientalis and identifies the clinically associated Ikeda and Chitose genotypes (UIC assay) and proposes clinical thresholds to assist in classifying high-, moderate-, and low-level infections.

Two isolates from this study represent the first planctomycetes successfully cultivated from soil, and a double-membrane-bounded nucleoid was observed in Gemmata-related isolates but not in Isosphaera- related isolates, consistent with the ultrastructures of existing species of each genus.
Mhp182 (P102) binds fibronectin and contributes to the recruitment of plasmin(ogen) to the Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae cell surface

The multifunctional binding ability of P102 and activation of M.’hyopneumoniae‐sequestered plasmin(ogen) by an exogenous activator suggests P102 plays an important role in virulence.

In those regions where prior evidence of theileriosis was uncommon, Ikeda infection was evident in a limited number of NSW regions and multiple regions in QLD, however, clinical disease has continued to become widespread in NSW and VIC.

This paper provides the first investigation into the possible biological and mechanical vectors involved in the rapid spread of the Theileria orientalis parasite in the current Australasian disease outbreak.
