ABSTRACT Staphylococcus aureus is a proficient biofilm former on host tissues and medical implants. We mutagenized S. aureus… Expand The Staphylococcus aureus cid and lrg operons encode a novel regulatory system that affects murein hydrolase activity, stationary… Expand N-acetylmuramoyl-l-alanine amidase (NAMLAA) hydrolyzes bacterial peptidoglycan and is present in human serum. A peptidoglycan… Expand Bacterial cytokinesis is driven by the septal ring apparatus, the assembly of which in Escherichia coli is directed to mid‐cell… Expand Recent studies have shown that expression of the Staphylococcus aureus lrgAB operon inhibits murein hydrolase activity and… Expand Cleavage of peptidoglycan plays an important role in bacterial cell division, cell growth and cell lysis. Here, we reveal that… Expand In trying to identify genetic loci involved in the regulation of cap5 genes in Staphylococcus aureus, we isolated a transposon… Expand Previous studies in our laboratory have shown that the Staphylococcus aureus LytSR two-component regulatory system affects murein… Expand Previously in our laboratory, a PCR-based strategy was used to isolate potential sensor gene fragments from the Staphyloccus… Expand Bacteriophage lysis involves at least two fundamentally different strategies. Most phages elaborate at least two proteins, one of… Expand
