Plant interactions can be defi ned as the ways plants act upon the growth, fi tness, survival and reproduction of other plants, largely by modifying their environment. These interactions can be positive (facilitation) or negative (competition or exploitation). During plantation establishment or natural forest regeneration after a disturbance, high light(More)
Three vancomycin-dependent clinical isolates of Enterococcus faecalis of the VanB type were studied by determining (i) the sequence of the ddl gene encoding the host D-Ala:D-Ala ligase and the vanSB-vanRB genes specifying the two-component regulatory system that activates transcription of the vanB operon, (ii) the level of expression of resistance genes by(More)
VanD-type Enterococcus faecium BM4416 was constitutively resistant to vancomycin and to teicoplanin by synthesis of peptidoglycan precursors ending in D-alanyl-D-lactate. Like E. faecium BM4339, the only VanD-type strain described so far, BM4416 produced an impaired D-alanine:D-alanine ligase. Unlike for BM4339, which had a 5-bp insertion in ddl,(More)
