Brave new world : recent evolution of an insect-transmitted pathogen( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(CIT): NIH Director's Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series Any population of organisms, be it made up of animals or plants, is susceptible to invasion by pathogens. Moreover, human-population migration, habitat simplification, and domestication of plants and animals have created novel ecological niches. Some pathogens are able to emerge into these niches and cause diseases that threaten public health and agricultural production. Despite the fact that such pathogens are common, there is often a lack of detailed studies that track their evolutionary origin and the effects of the population's ecological community structure on pathogen virulence, transmission, and epidemic persistence. For his lecture, Dr. Kolter will discuss the studies his lab is carrying out to understand the evolution and ecology of a fatal bacterial wilt disease transmitted by the striped cucumber beetle (Acalymma vittatum) and caused by the bacterium Erwinia tracheiphila. This bacterial wilt disease is an annual epidemic of cucurbit crop populations (squashes, cucumbers, etc.) that is geographically restricted to plants grown in the temperate zones of the Northeastern and Midwestern United States. Dr. Kolter's laboratory results suggest that the pathogen evolved relatively recently, and the disease gained epidemic proportions as a consequence of Old World hypersusceptible cucurbits (cucumbers, melons) being introduced into North America and the unique ecology of the affected areas

On the evolution of bacterial multicellularity( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Highlights: Many bacteria have multicellular lifecycle phases, falling into three broad categories. Predation, nutrient scarcity, and environmental variability may have led to multicellularity. Despite many shared features, current evidence suggests each instance evolved independently. Rapid and repeated evolution of multicellularity suggests it could be common in the universe. Abstract : Multicellularity is one of the most prevalent evolutionary innovations and nowhere is this more apparent than in the bacterial world, which contains many examples of multicellular organisms in a surprising array of forms. Due to their experimental accessibility and the large and diverse genomic data available, bacteria enable us to probe fundamental aspects of the origins of multicellularity. Here we discuss examples of multicellular behaviors in bacteria, the selective pressures that may have led to their evolution, possible origins and intermediate stages, and whether the ubiquity of apparently convergent multicellular forms argues for its inevitability
Microbiology in the 21st century : where are we and where are we going? by Moselio Schaechter( Book )

Movilidad por deslizamiento y formacion de biofilms en las micobacterias by Judith Recht( )

1 edition published in 2001 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Usando como modelo Mycobacterium smegmatis, un organismo no movil, hemos estudiado por primera vez en una especie micobacteriana el fenomeno llamado" deslizamiento" o sliding motility, asi como la formacion de biofilms. Para ello se realizo un screen de mutantes con la finalidad de identificar los genes necesarios para el deslizamiento sobre placas de mivilidad. El analisis genetico aqui descrito ha sido publicado recientemente. Los genes requeridos tanto para deslizamiento como para la formacion de biofilms (mps y tmtpC) estan relacionados con el proceso de biosintesis y transporte de los glicopeptidolipidos (GPLs) a la capsula de las micobacterias. En base a nuestros resultados proponemos un modelo para el papel que juegan los GPLs en ambos fenomenos(AU)

Motility, Chemotaxis and Aerotaxis Contribute to Competitiveness during Bacterial Pellicle Biofilm Development( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Biofilm formation is a complex process involving various signaling pathways and changes in gene expression. Many of the sensory mechanisms and regulatory cascades involved have been defined for biofilms formed by diverse organisms attached to solid surfaces. By comparison, our knowledge on the basic mechanisms underlying the formation of biofilms at air-liquid interfaces, that is, pellicles, is much less complete. In particular, the roles of flagella have been studied in multiple solid-surface biofilm models but remain largely undefined for pellicles. In this work, we characterize the contributions of flagellum-based motility, chemotaxis and oxygen sensing to pellicle formation in the Gram-positive Bacillus subtilis . We confirm that flagellum-based motility is involved in, but is not absolutely essential for, B. subtilis pellicle formation. Further, we show that flagellum-based motility, chemotaxis and oxygen sensing are important for successful competition during B. subtilis pellicle formation. We report that flagellum-based motility similarly contributes to pellicle formation and fitness in competition assays in the Gram-negative Pseudomonas aeruginosa . Time-lapse imaging of static liquid cultures demonstrates that, in both B. subtilis and P. aeruginosa, a turbulent flow forms in the tube and a zone of clearing appears below the air-liquid interface just before the formation of the pellicle but only in strains that have flagella. Graphical abstract: Highlights: Motility facilitates pellicle formation in B. subtilis and P. aeruginosa . Non-motile mutants show a competitive disadvantage in pellicles. Production of flagella is a costly process in B. subtilis . Oxygen sensing contributes to pellicle formation in B. subtilis
