Lack of RsmA-Mediated Control Results in Constant Hypervirulence, Cell Elongation, and Hyperflagellation in Pectobacterium wasabiae
The posttranscriptional regulator RsmA controls the production of plant cell wall degrading enzymes (PCWDE) and cell motility in the Pectobacterium genus of plant pathogens. In this study theExpand

The Rcs phosphorelay modulates the expression of plant cell wall degrading enzymes and virulence in Pectobacterium carotovorum ssp. carotovorum.
Production of plant cell wall degrading enzymes, the major virulence factors of soft-rot Pectobacterium species, is controlled by many regulatory factors. Pectobacterium carotovorum ssp. carotovorumExpand

A role for the Rcs phosphorelay in regulating expression of plant cell wall degrading enzymes in Pectobacterium carotovorum subsp. carotovorum.
The Rcs phosphorelay is a signal transduction system that influences the virulence phenotype of several pathogenic bacteria. In the plant pathogen Pectobacterium carotovorum subsp. carotovorum (Pcc)Expand

Combination with antimicrobial peptide lyses improves loop-mediated isothermal amplification based method for Chlamydia trachomatis detection directly in urine sample
BackgroundChlamydia trachomatis is an obligate intracellular human pathogen and is the most common cause of sexually transmitted diseases affecting both men and women. The pathogen can causeExpand

AepA of Pectobacterium is not involved in the regulation of extracellular plant cell wall degrading enzymes production
Plant cell wall degrading enzymes (PCWDE) are the major virulence determinants in phytopathogenic Pectobacterium, and their production is controlled by many regulatory factors. In this study, weExpand

CLIP-Seq in Bacteria: Global Recognition Patterns of Bacterial RNA-Binding Proteins.
RNA-protein interactions are at the heart of many central cellular processes, and RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) associate with virtually all RNA molecules in a cell. In bacteria, global RBPs, often inExpand
