Microbial Cell Biology & Genomics
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).

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.
Biofilms are adherent bacterial communities embedded in a polymer matrix and can cause persistent human infections that are highly resistant to antibiotics. Discover the latest research on Biofilms here.
Microbes in the gut communicate with the central nervous system (CNS) via at least three parallel and interacting channels including endocrine, nervous, and immune signaling. Here is the latest research on the brain-gut-microbiome axis.
Gut microbiota has been implicated in neurodevelopment, neuroinflammatory responses, and neurological disorders. Here is the latest research on the role of gut microbiota in movement disorders.
The gut microbiota has been implicated in neurodevelopment, neuroinflammatory responses, and neurological disorders. Here is the latest research on the role of the gut microbiota in movement disorders.
The feed focuses on the emerging role of Gut Microbiota, also known as the gastrointestinal microbiome, in Type 2 Diabetes. Deficiency in gut microbiota has been linked to type 2 diabetes.
This feed focuses on emerging cell and gene therapies, such as HIV vaccines, for treating patients living with HIV/AIDS. Discover the latest research here.
This feed focuses on small molecules produced by the human microbiota. Several small molecules representing each of the major metabolic classes have been identified and implicated in several biological processes including modulation of the immune system and antibiosis. Here is the latest research.
The intestinal microbiome is responsible for metabolism of bile acids and generation of the bile acid pool. Discover the latest research on Microbes: Cholesterol & Bile Acid.
Glycans are sugars that can be attached to biological molecules through glycosylation. This feed focuses on the influence of microbial glycans on the immune system and in human diseases.
Microbes are microscopic organisms which may exist in a unicellular or colony form. Here is the latest research on their genetic makeup, their relationship with one another and the environment, and their evolution.
The human microbiota is composed of all microorganisms that reside inside and on the human body. This feed focuses on the collective genomes of all these microorganisms. Here is the latest research.
This feed focuses on Streptococcal Genes, such as virulence factors in Streptococcus gram-positive bacteria. Discover the latest research on Streptococcal genes.
Some pathogens require a vector in order to infect and reproduce in a host. The type of vector depends on the pathogen, with some requiring a specific vector while others can use a wide range of vectors. Discover the latest research on vector-pathogen interactions here.
