- The effect of silicon on the leaf proteome of rice (Oryza sativa L.) plants under cadmium-stressChika C Nwugo
Department of Microbiology, Miami University, Oxford, Ohio 45056, USA
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...
- Role of the carboxy terminus of SecA in iron acquisition, protein translocation, and virulence of the bacterial pathogen Acinetobacter baumanniiSteven 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...
- Effect of ethanol on differential protein production and expression of potential virulence functions in the opportunistic pathogen Acinetobacter baumanniiChika 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...
