Influence of biocontrol strain Pseudomonas fluorescens CHA0 and its antibiotic overproducing derivative on the diversity of resident root colonizing pseudomonads
Non-target effects of biocontrol strains of Pseudomonas on the population of resident pseudomonads should be assessed prior to their large scale application in the environment. The rifampicinExpand

Impact of Pseudomonas fluorescens strain CHA0 and a derivative with improved biocontrol activity on the culturable resident bacterial community on cucumber roots
Information on the effects of released wild-type or genetically engineered bacteria on resident bacterial communities is important to assess the potential risks associated with the introduction ofExpand

Isolation of an extracellular protease gene of Erwinia carotovora subsp. carotovora strain SCC3193 by transposon mutagenesis and the role of protease in phytopathogenicity.
Using mini-Tn5CmR::gusA, a transposon that allows transcriptional fusions to a promoterless beta-glucuronidase gene, a mutant of Erwinia carotovora subsp. carotovora SCC3193 deficient inExpand

Bi-allelic Recessive Loss-of-Function Variants in FANCM Cause Non-obstructive Azoospermia.
Infertility affects around 7% of men worldwide. Idiopathic non-obstructive azoospermia (NOA) is defined as the absence of spermatozoa in the ejaculate due to failed spermatogenesis. There is a highExpand

Regulation of the expression of prtW::gusA fusions in Erwinia carotovora subsp. carotovora.
Erwinia carotovora subsp. carotovora, a Gram-negative phytopathogenic bacterium, secretes an extracellular metalloprotease, PrtW. Previous results demonstrated that protease activity is necessary forExpand

Type II quorum sensing regulates virulence in Erwinia carotovora ssp. carotovora.
Quorum sensing is a process by which bacteria communicate using secreted chemical signaling molecules called autoinducers. In this study, the opportunistic plant pathogen Erwinia carotovora ssp.Expand

Novel mutants of Erwinia carotovora subsp. carotovora defective in the production of plant cell wall degrading enzymes generated by Mu transpososome-mediated insertion mutagenesis.
As in Erwinia carotovora subsp. carotovora the regulation details of the main virulence factors, encoding extracellular enzymes that degrade the plant cell wall, is only rudimentally understood, weExpand

Expression of nipP.w of Pectobacterium wasabiae is dependent on functional flgKL flagellar genes.
While flagellum-driven motility is hypothesized to play a role in the virulence of Pectobacterium species, there is no direct evidence that genes involved in flagellum assembly regulate the synthesisExpand
