    Vienna Ecology Centre, Department of Marine Biology, University of Vienna, Althanstrasse 14, 1090 Vienna, Austria
    Appl Environ Microbiol 72:2950-6. 2006
    ..Our results provide a molecular link between bacterial symbionts and host-secreted mucus in a marine symbiosis and suggest conservation in the mechanisms of host-microbe interactions throughout the animal kingdom...

    Silvia Bulgheresi
    Department of Genetics in Ecology, University of Vienna, Austria
    ISME J 5:986-98. 2011
    ..This is the first report of the functional role of sequence variability in a microbe-associated molecular patterns receptor in a beneficial association...
  3. doi Growth in width and FtsZ ring longitudinal positioning in a gammaproteobacterial symbiont
    Nikolaus Leisch
    University of Vienna, Department of Genetics in Ecology, Althanstrasse 14, 1090 Vienna, Austria
    Curr Biol 22:R831-2. 2012
    ..Remarkably, the newly described FtsZ ring appears to be not only 90° shifted with respect to model rods, but also elliptical and discontinuous. This reveals an unexpected versatility of the gammaproteobacterial cytokinetic machinery...
  4. pmc Bacterial symbiosis maintenance in the asexually reproducing and regenerating flatworm Paracatenula galateia
    Ulrich Dirks
    Department of Marine Biology, University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria
    PLoS ONE 7:e34709. 2012
    ..This would justify both the codiversification between Paracatenula hosts and their Candidatus Riegeria symbionts, and the slow evolutionary rates observed for several symbiont genes...
  5. doi First detection of thiotrophic symbiont phylotypes in the pelagic marine environment
    Niels R Heindl
    Department of Genetics in Ecology, University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria
    FEMS Microbiol Ecol 77:223-7. 2011

    Nat Microbiol 2:16182. 2016
    ..We conclude that, in a naturally occurring animal symbiont, binary fission is host-oriented and does not require native FtsZ to polymerize into a ring at any septation stage...

    Nika Pende
    1 Department of Ecogenomics and Systems Biology, University of Vienna, Althanstrasse 14, 1090 Vienna, Austria 2

    Monika Bright
    University of Vienna, Department of Marine Biology, Althanstrasse 14, A 1090 Vienna, Austria

    Infect Immun 76:2070-9. 2008
    ..pestis and human DCs can be reduced by a combination treatment with anti-CD209 and anti-CD207 antibodies. This study shows that human DC-SIGN is a receptor for Y. pestis that promotes phagocytosis by DCs in vitro...
