- Intermediate filament-like cytoskeleton of Caulobacter crescentusNora Ausmees
Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden
J Mol Microbiol Biotechnol 11:152-8. 2006....
- SmeA, a small membrane protein with multiple functions in Streptomyces sporulation including targeting of a SpoIIIE/FtsK-like protein to cell division septaNora Ausmees
Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, Uppsala University, BMC Box 596, 75124, Uppsala, Sweden
Mol Microbiol 65:1458-73. 2007..The septal localization of SffA was dependent on SmeA, suggesting that SmeA may act as an assembly factor for SffA and possibly other proteins required during spore maturation...
- Intermediate filament-like proteins in bacteria and a cytoskeletal function in StreptomycesSonchita Bagchi
Department of Cell and Molecular Biology, Uppsala University, Box 596, 75124 Uppsala, Sweden
Mol Microbiol 70:1037-50. 2008..Together, the bioinformatic and experimental data suggest that an IF-like protein architecture is a versatile design that is generally present in bacteria and utilized to perform diverse cytoskeletal tasks...
- Characterization of NopP, a type III secreted effector of Rhizobium sp. strain NGR234Nora Ausmees
Department of Microbiology, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, SLU, Uppsala, Sweden
J Bacteriol 186:4774-80. 2004..NopP, like NopL, is an effector secreted by the TTSS of NGR234, and depending on the legume host, it may have a deleterious or beneficial effect on nodulation or it may have little effect...
- The bacterial cytoskeleton: an intermediate filament-like function in cell shapeNora Ausmees
Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology, Yale University, New Haven, CT 06520, USA
Cell 115:705-13. 2003..We propose that IF-like filaments of crescentin assemble into a helical structure, which by applying its geometry to the cell, generates a vibrioid or helical cell shape depending on the length of the cell...
- Functions of the CckA histidine kinase in Caulobacter cell cycle controlChristine Jacobs
Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, Yale University, New Haven, CT 06520, USA
Mol Microbiol 47:1279-90. 2003..CtrA is more stable in the presence of CckA than it is absence, suggesting that CckA may also be involved, directly or indirectly, in the regulation of CtrA proteolysis...
- Identification of extracytoplasmic proteins in Bradyrhizobium japonicum using phage displayAnna Rosander
SLU, Department of Microbiology, P O Box 7025, SE 750 07 Uppsala, Sweden
Mol Plant Microbe Interact 16:727-37. 2003..In addition, genes encoding novel extracytoplasmic proteins were found. In particular, a novel family of small proteins has been identified that is characterized by a conserved pattern of four cysteine residues...
- Spatial and temporal control of differentiation and cell cycle progression in Caulobacter crescentusNora Ausmees
Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut 06520 8103, USA
Annu Rev Microbiol 57:225-47. 2003..An intriguing feature of this signaling network is the dynamic cell cycle-dependent polar localization of its components, which is believed to have a novel regulatory function...
- The rhizobial adhesion protein RapA1 is involved in adsorption of rhizobia to plant roots but not in nodulationElías J Mongiardini
Instituto de Biotecnologia y Biologia Molecular, Departamento de Ciencias Biologicas, Facultad de Ciencias Exactas, Universidad Nacional de La Plata CONICET, La Plata, Argentina
FEMS Microbiol Ecol 65:279-88. 2008..These results suggest that RapA1 receptors are present in root but not on inert surfaces, and that the function of this protein is related to rhizosphere colonization...
