Surface Display of Recombinant Proteins on Bacillus subtilis Spores
TLDR
A protein of the Bacillus subtilis spore coat, CotB, was found to be located on the spore surface and used as fusion partner to express the 459-amino-acid C-terminal fragment of the tetanus toxin (TTFC) in a spore-based display system.
Antimicrobial activity of a newly identified bacteriocin of Bacillus cereus
TLDR
The bacteriocin, here called cerein, was shown to be active specifically against other B. cereus strains and inactive against all other bacterial species tested.
Purification and partial characterization of bacillocin 490, a novel bacteriocin produced by a thermophilic strain of Bacillus licheniformis
TLDR
Bacillocin 490 is a novel candidate as a food anti-microbial agent since it displays its activity in milk, is stable to heat treatment and during storage, is active in a wide pH range and has bactericidal activity also at high temperature.
The Functional ccpA Gene Is Required for Carbon Catabolite Repression in Lactobacillus plantarum
TLDR
In vivo footprinting analysis of the catabolite-controlledbglH gene regulatory region in the ccpA mutant strain showed loss of protection of the cre under repressing conditions.
On the fate of ingested Bacillus spores.
Mutations Affecting the Different Transport Systems for Isoleucine, Leucine, and Valine in Escherichia coli K-12
TLDR
The existence of several transport processes for which kinetic evidence has been reported is confirmed by the isolation and preliminary characterization of mutants altered in one or more of them, and more than one transport system with high affinity is present.
A physical and functional analysis of the newly-identified bglGPT operon of Lactobacillus plantarum.
TLDR
BglG, BglP and BglT were shown to be homologous to the BglG family of transcriptional antiterminators, to permeases of the phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent phosphotransferase system and to beta-glucosidases, respectively.
Anti-biofilm activity of an exopolysaccharide from a sponge-associated strain of Bacillus licheniformis
TLDR
A newly identified polysaccharide having simple monomeric units of α-D-galactopyranosyl-(1→2)-glycerol-phosphate exerts an anti-biofilm activity against a number of both pathogenic and non-pathogenic strains without bactericidal effects.
