The cold shock family gene cspD3 is involved in the pathogenicity of Ralstonia solanacearum CQPS-1 to tobacco

Csps play roles in different cellular processes and show functional redundancy. Ralstonia solanacearum, the agent of bacterial wilt, has 4 or 5 Csps based on genome analysis. However, the functions of all Csps in R. solanacearum remain unclear. According to phylogenetic analysis, the Csps from R. solanacearum are clustered into a group with CspD from E. coli. Here, we studied the role of CspD3, which was closer to CspD of E. coli in the phylogenetic tree. A cspD3 deletion strain was constructed to assess its effect on the phenotype of R. solanacearum, including growth, biofilm formation, motility, and virulence. The results showed that cspD3 of R. solanacearum was not necessary for normal growth, cold-shock adaptation, or biofilm formation. However, deletion of cspD3 in R. solanacearum CQPS-1 led to increased swimming motility, and the mean diameters of swimming haloes produced by the ΔcspD3 mutant were 1.3-fold larger than those produced by wild-type strain and 1.2-fold larger than those produced by the complemented strain. More importantly, the virulence of the cspD3 deletion mutant on susceptible tobacco plants was significantly attenuated compared to the wild-type strain. At 20 d...

Conclusions: (1) Data at our center suggests at least a regional implementation gap in GBS screening and IAP. (2) The decline in the resistance rate ofE. coli for all antimicrobial substances might indicate that the reduction of prenatal antibiotics use is beneficial and that neonatal antibiotic stewardship programs should include pregnant women as well.What is Known:• GBS screening and intrapartum antibiotic prophylaxis led to a 32%-reduction in GBS disease in Germany with a 0.75 (92:122) ratio of early-onset disease to late-onset disease in 2009–2010.• Prenatal antibiotic use might increase the risk of E....

This study investigated antibacterial-producing Streptomyces isolated from the gut of estuarine fish Chanos chanos, emphasizing screening for the producer of peptide-containing antibacterial compounds. Eighteen isolates were found during preliminary screening, in which four isolates showed the best antibacterial activities. Based on the morphological, physiological, and biochemical characterization, as well as 16S rRNA partial sequencing, all of the four isolates belonged to Streptomyces. Three isolates were suspected as novel isolate candidates based on homology presentations and phylogenetic tree analysis. Disk-diffusion...

The objective of this work was to carry out a bibliographic survey of secondary metabolites isolated from the Velloziaceae family, creating a bank of compounds. After the bank was created, four prediction models for potentially active compounds against pathogenic microorganisms (Candida albicans, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Salmonella sp.) were obtained trying to identify which metabolites would be more active against the strains. Four sets of compounds with known activity for microorganisms were selected for the construction of predictive models from the CHEMBL database. Another bank with 163 unique molec...

CONCLUSIONS: The higher frequency of AII sub-assemblage suggests that anthroponotic transmission is more common in Salvador, but that zoonotic transmission pathways are also present and a change in susceptibility to different molecular patterns of Giardia may occur during child growth.

Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases (aaRSs) have long been viewed as mere housekeeping proteins and have therefore often been overlooked in drug discovery. However, recent findings have revealed that many aaRSs have noncanonical functions, and several of the aaRSs have been linked to autoimmune diseases, cancer, and neurological disorders. Deciphering these roles has been challenging because of a lack of tools to enable their study. To help solve this problem, we have generated recombinant high-affinity antibodies for a collection of thirteen cytoplasmic and one mitochondrial aaRSs. Selected domains of these proteins were produced ...
