Microcin E492 (MccE492) is a pore-forming bacteriocin produced and exported by Klebsiella pneumoniae RYC492. Besides its antibacterial activity, excreted MccE492 can form amyloid fibrils in vivo as well as in vitro. It has been proposed that bacterial amyloids can be functional playing a biological role, and in the particular case of MccE492 it would(More)
The social amoeba Dictyostelium discoideum has proven to be a useful model for studying relevant aspects of the host-pathogen interaction. In this work, D. discoideum was used as a model to study the ability of Salmonella Typhimurium to survive in amoebae and to evaluate the contribution of selected genes in this process. To do this, we performed infection(More)
Recombinant protein purification with affinity tags is a widely employed technique. One of the most common tags used for protein purification is the histidine tag (Histag). In this work, we use a tandem starch-binding domain (SBDtag) as a tag for protein purification. Four proteins from different sources were fused to the SBDtag, and the resulting fusion(More)
In the alpine life-zone, increasingly slower and unpredictable pollination at the higher altitudes predict an increase in floral investment in strongly outcrossing, pollen-limited biotically pollinated plant species, but not in autonomously self-pollinating species. Plant size, floral and above-ground vegetative biomass and individual capitulum biomass were(More)
