Quorum Sensing and Expression of Virulence in Pectobacteria
Quorum sensing (QS) is a population density-dependent regulatory mechanism in which gene expression is coupled to the accumulation of a chemical signaling molecule. Expand

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 synthesis… Expand
Dual role of RsmA in the coordinated regulation of expression of virulence genes in Pectobacterium wasabiae strain SCC3193.
The CsrA/RsmA family of post-transcriptional regulators in bacteria is involved in regulating many cellular processes, including pathogenesis. Using a bioinformatics approach, we identified an RsmA… Expand
Ramularia collo-cygni: a new pathogen spreading in barley fields in Estonia
Ramularia leaf spot (RLS) caused by the fungus Ramularia collo-cygni (Rcc) is affecting barley fields throughout temperate regions worldwide. The first finding of RLS in Estonia was reported on… Expand
USE OF EX VIVO CELLS TO ENHANCE BONE REPAIR
Ex vivo cell-growing technique might be a solution for treatment of bone diseases leading to the local bone defects. We assessed the effect of ex vivo-cultured cells in ectopic bone induction in… Expand
