Antimicrobial resistance poses a significant threat to the continued successful use of antimicrobial agents for the treatment of bacterial infections.
Bacillus Cereus is a gram-positive bacteria that is the cause of some foodborne illnesses and leads to diarrhea and vomiting. Discover the latest research on Bacillus Cereus Infection here.
Bacterial cell walls are made of peptidoglycan (also called murein), which is made from polysaccharide chains cross-linked by unusual peptides containing D-amino acids. Here is the latest research on bacterial cell wall structures.
Baterial metabolism is how bacteria obtain the energy and nutrients they need to live and reproduce.The study of bacterial metabolism focuses on the chemical diversity of substrate oxidations and dissimilation reactions (reactions by which substrate molecules are broken down), which normally function in bacteria to generate energy. Also within the scope of bacterial metabolism is the study of the uptake and utilization of the inorganic or organic compounds required for growth and maintenance of a cellular steady state (assimilation reactions). Discover the latest research on bacterial metabolism here.
Bacterial protein structures can expedite the development of novel antibiotics. Here is the latest research on bacterial proteins and the resolution of their structures.
This feed focuses on cellular respiration in bacteria, known as bacterial respiration. Discover the latest research here.
Bacterial transport proteins facilitate active and passive transport of small molecules and solutes across the bacterial membrane. Here is the latest research.
Bacteriotherapy, also known as fecal transplantation, involves the transfer of stool from a healthy donor into the gastrointestinal tract for the purpose of treating recurrent C. difficile colitis. Here is the latest on bacteriotherapy.
Biofilm formation is a key virulence factor for a wide range of microorganisms that cause chronic infections.Here is the latest research on biofilm and infectious diseases.
Efflux-mediated drug resistance is one mechanism where bacteria can express proteins that pump out antibiotics, thereby rendering therapy ineffective. Discover the latest research on efflux-mediated drug resistance here.
Genetic screens can provide important information on gene function as well as the molecular events that underlie a biological process or pathway. Here is the latest research on genetic screens in bacteria.
Infectious Disease Sequencing is a emerging field due to low-cost massively parallel sequencing and allows researchers to monitor outbreaks of infectious pathogens. Discover the latest research on Infectious Disease Sequencing here.
Pyroptosis is a form of necrotic and inflammatory programmed cell death induced by inflammatory caspases, one of which is activated by Inflammasome, a multiprotein oligomer responsible for the activation of inflammatory responses. Discover the latest research on inflammasome and pyroptosis here.
Mastoiditis is caused by an infection that extends to the air cells of the skull behind the ear. Here is the latest research on mastoiditis.
Molecular bacteriology involves fundamental, translational and application-oriented research on the very diverse roles of bacteria in human health and disease. Discover the latest on molecular bacteriology here.
Pneumococcal infection is an infection caused by the bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae, which is also called the pneumococcus.
Postoperative infections are infections that often originate at the surgical incision itself after an operation. Discover the latest research on postoperative infections here.
Probiotics are beneficial bacteria, while prebiotics are food for these bacteria. Here is the latest research on probiotics and prebiotics.
This feed focuses on Streptococcal Genes, such as virulence factors in Streptococcus gram-positive bacteria. Discover the latest research on Streptococcal genes.
Streptococcal infections are caused by streptococci, a genus of Gram-positive bacteria which cause diverse human diseases. Discover the latest research on streptococcal infection here.
