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.
Antimicrobial resistance poses a significant threat to the continued successful use of antimicrobial agents for the treatment of bacterial infections.
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.
Phage therapy uses bacterial viruses (bacteriophages) to treat bacterial infections and is widely being recognized as an alternative to antibiotics. Here is the latest research.
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.
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.
CRISPR-Cas system enables the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. This feed focuses on CRISPR-Cas applications relevant to single cell analyses. Here is the latest research.
CRISPR-Cas system enables the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. Staphylococci are associated with life-threatening infections in hospitals, as well as the community. Here is the latest research on how CRISPR-Cas system can be used for treatment of Staphylococcal infections.
