We report the genome sequences of four isolates of a human gut symbiont, Bifidobacterium longum. Strains 44B and 35B were isolated from two 1-year-old infants, while 1-6B and 2-2B were isolated from the same children 5 years later. The sequences permit investigations of factors enabling long-term colonization of bifidobacteria.
Coprobacter fastidiosus is a Gram-negative obligate anaerobic bacterium belonging to the phylum Bacteroidetes. In this work, we report the draft genome sequence of C. fastidiosus strain NSB1(T) isolated from human infant feces.
We described two original genetic constructs encoding chimeric monomolecular T-cell receptors, where the effector T-cell receptor fragment was linked with the antigen-recognizing part consisting of two variable fragments of two different antibodies to carcinoembryonic antigen. Following transfection, these receptors were expressed on the cell surface and… (More)
