Survival and growth of Yersinia pestis within macrophages and an effect of the loss of the 47-megadalton plasmid on growth in macrophages.
The survival and growth of Yersinia pestis cells within mouse peritoneal cavities and within mouse peritoneal macrophages maintained in vitro was examined. Two strains were used which differed onlyExpand

Consequences of Ca2+ deficiency on macromolecular synthesis and adenylate energy charge in Yersinia pestis.
A 37 but not 26 degrees C virulent Yersinia pestis is known to require at least 2.5 mM Ca2+ for growth; this requirement is potentiated by Mg2+. After shift of log-phase cells (doubling time of 2 h)Expand

RNA synthesis in Yersinia pestis during growth restriction in calcium-deficient medium.
Yersinia pestis requires 2.5 mM Ca(2+) for growth at 37 degrees C but not at 26 degrees C. After a shift from 26 to 37 degrees C in a Ca(2+)-deficient medium, an ordered series of metabolicExpand

Close genetic linkage of the determinants of the ribitol and D-arabitol catabolic pathways in Klebsiella aerogenes.
Klebsiella aerogenes strain W70 has separate inducible pathways for the degradation of the pentitols ribitol and d-arabitol. These pathways are closely linked genetically as determined byExpand

D-Arabitol catabolic pathway in Klebsiella aerogenes.
Klebsiella aerogenes strain W70 has an inducible pathway for the degradation of d-arabitol which is comparable to the one found in Aerobacter aerogenes strain PRL-R3. The pathway is also similar toExpand

Effects of growth temperature, 47-megadalton plasmid, and calcium deficiency on the outer membrane protein porin and lipopolysaccharide composition of Yersinia pestis EV76.
The expression of several virulence determinants of Yersinia pestis is known to be dependent on the in vitro growth temperature. One of these, calcium dependence, is associated with the presence of aExpand

Ribitol catabolic pathway in Klebsiella aerogenes.
In Klebsiella aerogenes W70, there is an inducible pathway for the catabolism of ribitol consisting of at least two enzymes, ribitol dehydrogenase (RDH) and d-ribulokinase (DRK). These two enzymesExpand

Glyoxylate bypass enzymes in Yersinia species and multiple forms of isocitrate lyase in Yersinia pestis.
Isocitrate lyase and malate synthase, the two unique enzymes of the glyoxylate cycle, were detected in crude extracts of Yersinia pestis, Y. pseudotuberculosis, and Y. enterocolitica. Y. pestis,Expand

Outer membrane protein composition of Yersinia pestis at different growth stages and incubation temperatures.
The protein composition of the outer membrane of Yersinia pestis grown at 26 and at 37 degrees C was examined. The outer membrane was isolated by isopycnic sucrose density centrifugation, and itsExpand

Constitutive uptake and degradation of fatty acids by Yersinia pestis.
Yersinia pestis was found to utilize palmitic acid as a primary carbon and energy source. No inhibition of growth by palmitic acid was observed. Comparison of palmitic acid uptake by cells pregrownExpand
