Pyoverdine, a siderophore from Pseudomonas aeruginosa, translocates into C. elegans, removes iron, and activates a distinct host response
(Taylor & Francis, 2018)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a re-emerging, opportunistic human pathogen, encodes a variety of virulence determinants. Pyoverdine, a siderophore produced by this bacterium, is essential for pathogenesis in mammalian infections. ...
Orsay δ protein is required for non-lytic viral egress
(American Society for Microbiology, 2018)
Nonenveloped gastrointestinal viruses, such as human rotavirus, can exit infected cells from the apical surface without cell lysis. The mechanism of such nonlytic exit is poorly understood. The nonenveloped Orsay virus is ...
Potential Nematode Alarm Pheromone Induces Acute Avoidance in Caenorhabditis elegans
(Genetics Society of America, 2017)
It is crucial for animal survival to detect dangers such as predators. A good indicator of dangers is injury of conspecifics. Here we show that fluids released from injured conspecifics invoke acute avoidance in both ...
