A genetic analysis of the function of LuxO, a two‐component response regulator involved in quorum sensing in Vibrio harveyi
Two independent quorum‐sensing systems control the expression of bioluminescence (lux) in the marine bacterium Vibrio harveyi. Each system is composed of an autoinducer (AI‐1 or AI‐2) and its cognateExpand

Sequence and function of LuxU: a two-component phosphorelay protein that regulates quorum sensing in Vibrio harveyi.
Vibrio harveyi regulates the expression of bioluminescence (lux) in response to cell density, a phenomenon known as quorum sensing. In V. harveyi, two independent quorum-sensing systems exist, andExpand

SseBCD proteins are secreted by the type III secretion system of Salmonella pathogenicity island 2 and function as a translocon.
The type III secretion system encoded by Salmonella pathogenicity island 2 (SPI2) is required for systemic infections and intracellular accumulation of Salmonella enterica. This system is induced byExpand

The Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhimurium Translocated Effectors SseJ and SifB Are Targeted to the Salmonella-Containing Vacuole
ABSTRACT The Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium type III secretion system (TTSS) encoded in Salmonella pathogenicity island 2 (SPI-2) promotes replication within host cells and systemicExpand

A genetic analysis of the functions of LuxN: a two‐component hybrid sensor kinase that regulates quorum sensing in Vibrio harveyi
The bioluminescent marine bacterium Vibrio harveyi controls light production using two parallel quorum‐sensing systems. V. harveyi produces two autoinducers (AI‐1 and AI‐2), which are recognized byExpand

Transcription of the SsrAB regulon is repressed by alkaline pH and is independent of PhoPQ and magnesium concentration.
The Salmonella pathogenicity island 2 (SPI-2) type III secretion system is expressed by intracellular bacteria and translocates effector proteins across the vacuolar membrane. Signals sensed byExpand

SpiC is required for translocation of Salmonella pathogenicity island 2 effectors and secretion of translocon proteins SseB and SseC.
The Salmonella pathogenicity island 2 (SPI2) type III secretion system (TTSS) promotes Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium virulence for mice and increased survival and replication withinExpand

Rigid fixation and strain patterns in the pig zygomatic arch and suture.
PURPOSE In orthognathic surgery, rigid fixation is routinely used to hold together bone fragments that may experience heavy force from attached masticatory muscles. Internal fixation plates areExpand
