Genetic, Epigenetic and Phenotypic Diversity of Four Bacillus velezensis Strains Used for Plant Protection or as Probiotics
Bacillus velezensis strains are applied as ecologically safe biopesticides, plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR), and in veterinary probiotics. They are abundant in various environments including soil, plants, marine ...
MapB Protein is the Essential Methionine Aminopeptidase in Mycobacterium tuberculosis
M. tuberculosis (Mtb), which causes tuberculosis disease, continues to be a major global health threat. Correct identification of valid drug targets is important for the development of novel therapeutics that would shorten ...
Karyotype Evolution in the Horseshoe Bat Rhinolophus sedulus by Whole-Arm Reciprocal Translocation (WART)
Robertsonian (centric) fusion or fission is one of the predominant modes of chromosomal rearrangement in karyotype evolution among mammals. However, in karyotypes composed of only bi-armed chromosomes, creation of new ...
Micro-Food Web Structure Shapes Rhizosphere Microbial Communities and Growth in Oak
The multitrophic interactions in the rhizosphere impose significant impacts on microbial community structure and function, affecting nutrient mineralisation and consequently plant performance. However, particularly for ...
Ontogeny of the Electric Organs in the Electric Eel, Electrophorus electricus: Physiological, Histological, and Fine Structural Investigations
This study attempts to clarify the controversy regarding the ontogenetic origin of the main organ electrocytes in the electric eel, Electrophorus electricus. The dispute was between an earlier claimed origin from a skeletal ...
Determination of Single Sugars, Including Inulin, in Plants and Feed Materials by High-Performance Liquid Chromatography and Refraction Index Detection
The exact and reliable detection of sugar monomers and fructans provides important information for the evaluation of carbohydrate metabolism in plants and animals. Using the HPLC method; a large number of samples and single ...
Toward Multiscale Models of Cyanobacterial Growth
A Modular Approach
Oxygenic photosynthesis dominates global primary productivity ever since its evolution more than three billion years ago. While many aspects of phototrophic growth are well understood, it remains a considerable challenge ...
Genetic Contribution to Initial and Progressive Alcohol Intake Among Recombinant Inbred Strains of Mice
We profiled individual differences in alcohol consumption upon initial exposure and during 5 weeks of voluntary alcohol intake in female mice from 39 BXD recombinant inbred strains and parents using the drinking in the ...
Intercropping Induces Changes in Specific Secondary Metabolite Concentration in Ethiopian Kale (Brassica carinata) and African Nightshade (Solanum scabrum) under Controlled Conditions
Intercropping is widespread in small-holder farming systems in tropical regions and is also practiced in the cultivation of indigenous vegetables, to alleviate the multiple burdens of malnutrition. Due to interspecific ...
