Virtual screening for novel quorum sensing inhibitors to eradicate biofilm formation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa
The automated docking program DOCK 5.3.0 was applied to screening for quorum sensing inhibitors (QSIs) of Peudomonus aeruginosa from a database containing 51 active components of Traditional ChineseExpand
Trichoderma atroviride F6 improves phytoextraction efficiency of mustard (Brassica juncea (L.) Coss. var. foliosa Bailey) in Cd, Ni contaminated soils.
Trichoderma atroviride F6, isolated from decaying feather and resistant to 100 mg l(-1) Cd2+ and 250 mg l(-1) Ni2+, was applied for rhizoremediation of Cd, Ni and Cd-Ni combination contaminated soilsExpand
Screening for novel quorum-sensing inhibitors to interfere with the formation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilm.
The objective of this study was to screen for novel quorum-sensing inhibitors (QSIs) from traditional Chinese medicines (TCMs) that inhibit bacterial biofilm formation. Six of 46 active componentsExpand
GDGT cyclization proteins identify the dominant archaeal sources of tetraether lipids in the ocean
Significance Archaea synthesize distinctive membrane-spanning lipids (GDGTs) that are readily preserved in ancient sediments and utilized as paleotemperature proxies to reconstruct sea surfaceExpand
Calditol-linked membrane lipids are required for acid tolerance in Sulfolobus acidocaldarius
Significance It is thought that the distinct ether lipid membranes of archaea allow them to thrive in environmental extremes. However, it has been difficult to demonstrate this physiological roleExpand
Characterization of a Deep-Sea Sediment Metagenomic Clone that Produces Water-Soluble Melanin in Escherichia coli
To access to the microbial genetic resources of deep-sea sediment by a culture-independent approach, the sediment DNA was extracted and cloned into fosmid vector (pCC1FOS) generating a library ofExpand
Promotion and nucleation of carbonate precipitation during microbial iron reduction.
Iron-bearing early diagenetic carbonate cements are common in sedimentary rocks, where they are thought to be associated with microbial iron reduction. However, little is yet known about how localExpand
A physiologically relevant approach to characterize the microbial response to colloidal particles in food matrices within a simulated gastrointestinal tract.
Colloids on the nanometer size scale are beginning to find increased applications in drinks, foods, food-contact surfaces, and food packaging. While these particles add intrinsic value to the foodExpand
DNA Barcoding for Fractured Reservoir Analysis – An Initial Investigation
Tracer testing in fractured reservoirs has long been limited by the availability of unique and unambiguous tracers. In this study, we introduce the concept of using thermophilic microorganisms andExpand
