The comprehensive sourcebook of bacterial protein toxins
J.E. Alouf and J.H. Freer, Preface. U. Dobrindt and J. Hacker, Plasmids, Phages, and Pathogenicity Islands: Lesson on the Evolution of Bacterial Toxins. Toxins Acting on Cytosolic Targets: P.Expand
A plasmid which can be transferred between Escherichia coli and Pasteurella haemolytica by electroporation and conjugation.
Three broad-host-range plasmids (pRK290, pSa4 and pKT230) and one native Pasteurella haemolytica plasmid (pPH33) were used in transformation experiments with P. haemolytica strains T179 (serotypeExpand
Interaction of alytic polypeptide, melittin, with lipid membrane systems.
Abstract To study mechanisms whereby lytic proteins disrupt biomembranes, artificial phospholipid spherules (liposomes) were exposed to melittin, a cationic peptide in which sequences of hydrophobicExpand
Toxins of Staphylococcus aureus.
Membrane-associated ATPase activity from Micrococcus lysodeikticus.
Interaction of staphylococcal alpha-toxin with artificial and natural membranes.
Comparison of hemolytic activity and chromate-releasing activity of partially purified preparations of staphylococcal alpha-toxin indicated the presence of a lytic factor other than alpha-toxin. ThisExpand
Non-culturable Legionella pneumophila associated with Acanthamoeba castellanii: detection of the bacterium using DNA amplification and hybridization.
The intracellular localization of Legionella pneumophila serogroup 1 within Acanthamoeba castellanii rendered the bacteria non-culturable on supplemented BCYE agar. DNA amplification, using twoExpand
Heat-labile and heat-stable haemolysins of Campylobacter jejuni.
During studies on the virulence mechanisms of Campylobacter jejuni clinical isolates it became apparent that some strains produced one or more haemolysins and some did not. There was no greatExpand
Possible conformation of delta-lysin, a membrane-damaging peptide of Staphylococcus aureus.
Abstract It is proposed that staphylococcal delta-lysin, a membrane-damaging peptide of 26 residues adopts an α-helical rod-like configuration with separate hydrophilic and hydrophobic faces.Expand
Binding of 125I-alpha toxin of Staphylococcus aureus to erythrocytes.
Alpha toxin purified from Staphylococcus aureus strain Wood 46 and radioiodinated by the lactoperoxidase method retained full haemolytic activity and was used to study factors affecting binding toExpand
