Bacterial Pathogenesis: Methods and Protocols by Pontus Nordenfelt, Mattias Collin

By Pontus Nordenfelt, Mattias Collin

This quantity discusses numerous equipment and protocols used for the experimentation of a variety of bacterial species, resembling Streptococcus pyogenes, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumonia, Listeria monocytogenes, and Mycobacterium marinum. Bacterial Pathogens: equipment and Protocols is split into 6 elements: half 1 describes varied methods to selecting and characterizing bacterial effector molecules; half 2 bargains with structural biology of bacterial pathogenesis and the way to beat folding and balance issues of recombinantly expressed proteins; half three information technique that identifies micro organism in advanced groups and the way genomes of bacterial pathogens have advanced; half four displays at the speedy improvement of complicated imaging thoughts that deal with questions on molecular homes of person stay micro organism, ultrastructure of surfaces, and subcellular localization of bacterial proteins; half five describes tools from in vitro and in vivo modeling of bacterial infections; and half 6 explores how bacterial pathogens are the real specialists of the immune approach. Written within the hugely profitable Methods in Molecular Biology sequence structure, chapters comprise introductions to their respective subject matters, lists of the mandatory fabrics and reagents, step by step, easily reproducible laboratory protocols, and pointers on troubleshooting and keeping off recognized pitfalls.

Cutting-edge and accomplished, Bacterial Pathogens: tools and Protocols is a helpful source for somebody who's drawn to this attention-grabbing and evolving field.

Prudentius and the landscapes of late antiquity

This paintings considers the illustration of the geographical and cultural landscapes of overdue antiquity within the paintings of the Latin poet Prudentius. It argues that his use of allusion to Augustan and early imperial Latin authors provides those landscapes as being marked via the coming of Christianity, notwithstanding maintaining the grandeur of the pagan earlier.

Coli genome would result in a false positive. Purification techniques for individual proteins can vary widely and will not be discussed here. 4 Notes 1. This procedure can be modified to simultaneously clone into two different destination plasmids in one LR Clonase reaction by using destination plasmids containing two different antibiotic resistance cassettes. For example, in our studies we utilized two different destination plasmids: one with an N-terminal His-MBP tag and a gentamycin resistance cassette and a second with an N-terminal His tag and an ampicillin resistance cassette.

For example, one class of enzymes that cleaves c-di-GMP is active in Mg2+ but not Ca2+. One can use a binding buffer without divalent cations during lysate production and provide it in 2× with the radiolabeled ligand mix, allowing use of different divalent cations for the same frozen lysate library. If necessary, an excess of unlabeled nonspecific competitor can also be included in the binding buffer to prevent nonspecific interactions. 3. Prepare radiolabeled ligand by adding sufficient counts of radioisotope to give >5000 counts for the total spot intensity when exposed for 15 min to a phosphorimager screen.
