..xanthus and illustrates how the study of diverse bacteria may uncover novel mechanisms involved in regulating bacterial cell polarity. ..
Søgaard Andersen L, Yang Z. Programmed cell death: role for MazF and MrpC in Myxococcus multicellular development. Curr Biol. 2008;18:R337-9 pubmed publisher
..Programmed cell death is of ultimate importance in embryonic development of animals. Now, programmed cell death has been shown to be an integral part of a multicellular developmental program in the bacterium Myxococcus xanthus. ..
Wuichet K, SÃ¸gaard Andersen L. Evolution and diversity of the Ras superfamily of small GTPases in prokaryotes. Genome Biol Evol. 2014;7:57-70 pubmed publisher
..We propose that the MglA family was lost from the ancestral eukaryote and that the Ras superfamily members in extant eukaryotes are the result of vertical and horizontal gene transfer events of ancestral Rup GTPases. ..
