Maria Karatsa-Dodgson et al.
Journal of bacteriology, 192(20), 5341-5349 (2010-08-17)
Lipoteichoic acid (LTA) is an important cell wall component of Gram-positive bacteria. The key enzyme responsible for polyglycerolphosphate lipoteichoic acid synthesis in the Gram-positive pathogen Staphylococcus aureus is the membrane-embedded lipoteichoic acid synthase enzyme, LtaS. It is presumed that LtaS...

Lipoteichoic acid (LTA) is an important cell wall polymer in Gram-positive bacteria. The enzyme responsible for polyglycerolphosphate LTA synthesis is LtaS, first described in Staphylococcus aureus. Four LtaS orthologues, LtaS(BS) , YfnI, YqgS and YvgJ, are present in Bacillus subtilis....

Microbiology (Reading, England), 159(Pt 11), 2416-2426 (2013-09-10)
The probiotic Gram-positive bacterium Lactobacillus casei BL23 is naturally confronted with salt-stress habitats. It has been previously reported that growth in high-salt medium, containing 0.8 M NaCl, leads to modifications in the cell envelope of this bacterium. In this study...

Lipids that are labeled with the NBD (7-nitrobenz-2-oxa-1,3-diazol-4-yl) group are widely used as fluorescent analogues of native lipids in biological and model membranes to monitor a variety of processes. The NBD group of acyl chain labeled NBD lipids is known...

Molecular membrane biology, 33(1-2), 23-28 (2016-07-28)
To investigate the effect of fluorescent probe on the properties of membranes, we studied model membranes composed of 1,2- dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) and 1-palmitoyl 2-oleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (POPC) in the presence and absence of fluorescent probe. The morphology of giant unilamellar vesicles (GUVs)...

Structural analogs of the bioactive lipid 1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphoglycerol were synthesized with a xylitol polar head group and both diacyl and diether radyl groups. Mass spectral characterization of xylitol phospholipids (PX) was carried out using collisional activation and high-resolution mass measurements of...
