The human-pathogenic bacterium Salmonella enterica adjusts and adapts to different environments while attempting colonization. In the course of infection nutrient availabilities change drastically. New techniques, "-omics" data and subsequent integration by systems biology improve our understanding of these changes. We review changes in metabolism focusing(More)
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is becoming the method of choice for detecting microorganisms concealed in complex matrices or " hoax materials " like household dry powders, food, and soil. [1] However, adding samples directly to a PCR reaction is in most cases not possible because of the presence of PCR inhibitors in the sample. [2] Thus, in order to(More)
BACKGROUND Regulated expression of suicide genes is a powerful tool to eliminate specific subsets of cells and will find widespread usage in both basic and applied science. A promising example is the specific elimination of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infected cells by LTR-driven suicide genes. The success of this approach, however, depends(More)
