Autophagy, 15(5), 796-812 (2019-01-25)
Innate immune defense against intracellular pathogens, like Salmonella, relies heavily on the autophagy machinery of the host. This response is studied intensively in epithelial cells, the target of Salmonella during gastrointestinal infections. However, little is known of the role that...

BMC immunology, 14, 27-27 (2013-06-22)
Surgical intervention-related trauma contributes largely to the development of postoperative immunosuppression, with reduced resistance to secondary bacterial infection. This study compared the impact of laparotomy versus laparoscopy on macrophage-associated bactericidal ability and examined whether laparotomy renders the host more susceptible...

Bio-protocol, 10(1), e3472-e3472 (2020-01-05)
Simplicity, efficiency and versatility of the CRISPR/Cas system greatly contributed to its rapid use in a broad range of fields. Applications of unbiased CRISPR/Cas screenings are increasing and thus there is a growing need for unbiased and tailored CRISPR/Cas gRNA...

Chemosphere, 263, 128241-128241 (2020-12-11)
The world acceptance of medical cannabis slowly widens. Cannabinoids are known as the main therapeutic active compounds in the cannabis plant, yet their bioactive physiological effects are still unknown. In this study, the mode of action of nine selected cannabinoids...
Celia Guilini et al.
Analytical chemistry, 87(17), 8858-8866 (2015-08-12)
Swiftness, reliability, and sensitivity of live bacteria detection in drinking water are key issues for human safety. The most widespread used indicator of live bacteria is a caged form of carboxyfluorescein in which 3' and 6' hydroxyl groups are masked...
Rachel Caines et al.
Journal of cell science, 132(16) (2019-07-25)
Dysfunction of endothelial cells (ECs) and vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) leads to ischaemia, the central pathology of cardiovascular disease. Stem cell technology will revolutionise regenerative medicine, but a need remains to understand key mechanisms of vascular differentiation. RNA-binding proteins have...
Daniel S Leventhal et al.
Nature communications, 11(1), 2739-2739 (2020-06-03)
Synthetic biology is a powerful tool to create therapeutics which can be rationally designed to enable unique and combinatorial functionalities. Here we utilize non-pathogenic E coli Nissle as a versatile platform for the development of a living biotherapeutic for the...
Franziska M Heydenreich et al.
Bio-protocol, 10(1), e3484-e3484 (2020-01-05)
Site-directed scanning mutagenesis is a useful tool applied in studying protein function and designing proteins with new properties, such as increased stability or enzymatic activity. Creating a systematic library of hundreds of site-directed mutants is still a demanding and expensive...
Joel Bozue et al.
PloS one, 9(8), e104524-e104524 (2014-08-08)
Bacterial proteins destined for the Tat pathway are folded before crossing the inner membrane and are typically identified by an N-terminal signal peptide containing a twin arginine motif. Translocation by the Tat pathway is dependent on the products of genes...
Vanda Lux et al.
Structure (London, England : 1993), 28(12), 1288-1299 (2020-09-19)
Dimerization of many eukaryotic transcription regulatory factors is critical for their function. Regulatory role of an epigenetic reader lens epithelium-derived growth factor/p75 (LEDGF/p75) requires at least two copies of this protein to overcome the nucleosome-induced barrier to transcription elongation. Moreover...
Bernard Charroux et al.
STAR protocols, 1(3), 100117-100117 (2020-12-31)
This protocol is designed to prepare adult axenic Drosophila before monitoring their behavior in a two-choice feeding assay, where flies are confronted with an axenic versus a dead or alive bacteria-contaminated feeding solution. Several aspects of the procedure, including raising...
Farbod Alimohammadi et al.
Langmuir : the ACS journal of surfaces and colloids, 34(24), 7192-7200 (2018-05-22)
Two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterials have attracted considerable attention in biomedical and environmental applications due to their antimicrobial activity. In the interest of investigating the primary antimicrobial mode-of-action of 2D nanomaterials, we studied the antimicrobial properties of MnO2 and MoS2, toward Gram-positive...
Yimiao Qu et al.
STAR protocols, 1(2), 100082-100082 (2020-10-29)
The biological phenotype is affected by the level of gene expression. Here, we provide a step-by-step protocol for precisely titrating and quantitatively observing the target gene expression level in budding yeast by manipulating its copy number in the genome. Using...
João P Fonseca et al.
Bio-protocol, 10(5), e3547-e3547 (2021-03-05)
The ability to rapidly assemble and prototype cellular circuits is vital for biological research and its applications in biotechnology and medicine. The Mammalian ToolKit (MTK) is a Golden Gate-based cloning toolkit for fast, reproducible and versatile assembly of large DNA...
Eric P Caragata et al.
Applied and environmental microbiology, 86(11) (2020-03-30)
Given the continued high prevalence of mosquito-transmitted diseases, there is a clear need to develop novel disease and vector control strategies. Biopesticides of microbial origin represent a promising source of new approaches to target disease-transmitting mosquito populations. Here, we describe...

Mobile DNA, 7, 21-21 (2016-11-16)
LINE-1 (L1) retrotransposons are a notable endogenous source of mutagenesis in mammals. Notably, cancer cells can support unusual L1 retrotransposition and L1-associated sequence rearrangement mechanisms following DNA damage. Recent reports suggest that L1 is mobile in epithelial tumours and neural...
