Swimming in a Crystal

Soft Matter, 2015, Accepted ManuscriptDOI: 10.1039/C5SM01831E, PaperAidan Thomas Brown, Ioana Vladescu, Angela Dawson, Teun Vissers, Jana Schwarz-Linek, Juho S Lintuvuori, Wilson PoonWe study catalytic Janus swimmers and Escherichia coli bacteria swimming in a two-dimensional colloidal crystal. The Janus swimmers orbit individual colloids and hop between colloids stochastically, with a hopping rate...The content of this RSS Feed (c) The Royal Society of Chemistry

Although their targets are extracellular, β-lactams stimulate respiration in Escherichia coli leading to increased intracellular accumulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Here, we show that β-lactams over a large concentration range trigger a strong increase in ROS production in...

AbstractFossil fuels consumption impacts the greenhouse gas emissions. Biofuels are considered as alternative renewable energy sources to reduce the fossil fuels dependency. Bioethanol produced by recombinant microorganisms is a widely suggested alternative to increase the yield in fermentation processes. However, ethanol and acetate accumulation under the fermentation process had been described as important stressors for the metabolic capabilities of the microorganisms, stopping the fermentation process and affecting the ethanol yield. Ethanol tolerance is a determining factor in the improvement of fermentative properties...

Peculiarities of biofilms formation byCampylobacter bacteria in mixed populations with other microbial contaminants was studied by real-time impedance spectroscopy on an automated xCelligence real time cell analyzer (RTCA). This method is based on measuring the medium resistance in special plates (E-plates) with interdigitated microelectrodes. Coculturing of campylobacter with coliform bacteria is accompanied by film formation; the intensity of this process varies depending on the type of the test cultures and the nature of their interaction in mixed populations. Film formation byC. jejuni during co-culturing with enteroba...

Conclusion. The hexane extract of L. apiculata leaves showed the lower MIC against S. aureus when compared with extracts obtained from other parts of the plant. The growth curve and the colonies count suggest a bacteriostatic activity of the L. apiculata leaves extract against Staphylococcus aureus. PMID: 31737073 [PubMed]
