    J Proteome Res 10:518-28. 2011
    ..Taken together, our study sheds light on molecular mechanisms involved in Si-induced Cd tolerance in rice leaves and suggests a more active involvement of Si in plant physiological processes than previously proposed...
  2. pmc Role of the carboxy terminus of SecA in iron acquisition, protein translocation, and virulence of the bacterial pathogen Acinetobacter baumannii
    Steven E Fiester
    Department of Microbiology, Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, USA
    Infect Immun 83:1354-65. 2015
    ..These results together indicate that although the C terminus of the A. baumannii ATCC 19606T SecA is not essential for viability, it plays a critical role in the production and translocation of different proteins and virulence...

    Chika C Nwugo
    Department of Microbiology, Miami University, Oxford, OH, USA
    PLoS ONE 7:e51936. 2012
    ..This alcohol predisposes the human host to infections by A. baumannii and could favor the survival and adaptation of this pathogen to medical settings and adverse host environments...
