Characterization of the cspB gene encoding PS2, an ordered surface‐layer protein in Corynebacterium glutamicum
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the Slayer protein is the product of the cspB gene, which is one of two major proteins detected in the culture media of various Corynebacterium glutamicum strains. Expand
Morphological changes of phosphatidylcholine bilayers induced by melittin: vesicularization, fusion, discoidal particles.
TLDR
It is concluded that melittin induces a reorganization of lipid assemblies which can involve different processes, depending on experimental conditions: vesicularization of multibilayers; fusion of small lipid vesicles; fragmentation into discs and micelles. Expand
Molecular biology of S-layers.
TLDR
This chapter reports on the molecular biology of crystalline surface layers of different bacterial groups and investigates the rearrangement by reciprocal recombination in Campylobacter fetus and the molecular bases for some applications are discussed. Expand
The eggshell of Drosophila melanogaster. VIII. Morphogenesis of the wax layer during oogenesis.
TLDR
The details of morphogenesis and construction of the wax layer envelope from Oregon R and mutants of Drosophila melanogaster eggs during oogenesis and choriogenesis are studied using freeze-fracturing and conventional electron microscopy methods. Expand
Polymorphism of Lecithins
TLDR
Lecithin–water systems display a variety of phases, several of which belong to a class of structures recently discovered in the anhydrous divalent cation-soaps, which are clustered in rod-shaped regions, embedded in a disordered paraffin matrix. Expand
Self-assembly of regular hollow icosahedra in salt-free catanionic solutions
TLDR
It is shown that in salt-free mixtures of anionic and cationic surfactants, such bilayers can self-assemble into hollow aggregates with a regular icosahedral shape, which are larger than any known icosahedra protein assembly or virus capsid. Expand
The crystal lattice of Paramecium trichocysts before and after exocytosis by X-ray diffraction and freeze-fracture electron microscopy
TLDR
A combination of x-ray powder diffraction, freeze-etching, and freeze-fracture electron microscopy, and density measurements are used to show that trichocyst contents are indeed protein crystals and to determine the elementary unit cell of both the compact intracellular and the extended extracellular form. Expand
The egg-shell of Drosophila melanogaster. VI, Structural analysis of the wax layer in laid eggs.
TLDR
Analysis of the structural features of wax in mature egg-shell in various species of Drosophilidae have shown that the wax layer exhibits indistinguishable (among the species) hydrophobic plaques, which have the same size and thickness with Dosophila melanogaster. Expand
Structure of the Cubic Phases of Lipid–Water Systems
TLDR
It is shown that all these cubic phases in lipid-water systems are similar: the lattice is body-centred, and the structure consists of networks of rods that are filled by the paraffin chains or by the polar moieties. Expand
