Acyl homoserine lactone-based quorum sensing in a methanogenic archaeon
TLDR
It is shown that a methanogenic archaeon, Methanosaeta harundinacea 6Ac, encodes an active quorum sensing system that is used to regulate cell assembly and carbon metabolic flux, implying that quorum sensed mechanisms are universal among prokaryotes. Expand
INHIBITION OF CELLULAR GROWTH AND STEROID 11β‐HYDROXYLATION INRAS‐TRANSFORMED ADRENOCORTICAL CELLS BY THE FUNGAL TOXINS BETICOLINS
The proliferation of GM16 and 4CDTras‐transformed newborn rat adrenocortical (RTAC) cells and Y1 mouse adrenal tumor cells was inhibited by beticolins, the fungal toxins extracted fromCercosporaExpand
Effects of 12 beticolins, Cercospora beticola toxins, on proliferation of ras-transformed adrenocortical cell.
TLDR
Beticolins with high hydrophobicity inhibit tumorigenic cell proliferation by different ways and partially reverted by calcium ionophore suggesting a role of intracellular Ca2+ chelation by beticolin-1 on cell growth inhibition. Expand
