A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Clostridium difficile en microscopie à contraste de phase. On distingue des bactéries sporulées, non sporulées et d'autres en cours de lyse (destruction). Bactérie de l'environnement (sol, eau, foin, sable), elle est à l'origine d'infections nosocomiales survenant après un traitement antibiotique : Clostridium difficile prédomine alors que les autres bactéries de la flore intestinale ont été détruites. L'infection peut provoquer deux types de pathologies graves : les colites pseudo-membraneuses dont l'origine est quasiment due à 100 % à C. difficile et la diarrhée post-antibiothérapie due à C. difficile dans 30 % des cas de ces diarrhées.

Glucose is the preferred carbon and energy source of Bacillus subtilis. It is transported into the cell by the glucose-specific phosphoenolpyruvate:sugar phosphotransferase system (PTS) encoded by the ptsGHI locus. We show here that these three genes (ptsG, ptsH, and ptsI) form an operon, the expression of which is inducible by glucose. In addition, ptsH and ptsl form a constitutive ptsHI operon. The promoter of the ptsGHI operon was mapped and expression from this promoter was found to be constitutive. Deletion mapping of the promoter region revealed the presence of a transcriptional terminator as a regulatory element between the promoter and coding region of the ptsG gene. Mutations within the ptsG gene were characterized and their consequences on the expression of ptsG studied. The results suggest that expression of the ptsGHI operon is subject to negative autoregulation by the glucose permease, which is the ptsG gene product. A regulatory gene located upstream of the ptsGHI operon, termed glcT, was also identified. The GlcT protein is a novel member of the BglG family of transcriptional antiterminators and is essential for the expression of the ptsGHI operon. A deletion of the terminator alleviates the need for GlcT. The activity of GlcT is negatively regulated by the glucose permease.
