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.

The Q15H mutation enables Crh, a Bacillus subtilis HPr-like protein, to carry out some regulatory HPr functions, but does not make it an effective phosphocarrier for sugar transport

Crh of Bacillus subtilis exhibits 45% sequence identity when compared to histidine-containing protein (HPr), a phosphocarrier protein of the phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP):sugar phosphotransferase system (PTS). Crh can be phosphorylated by ATP at the regulatory Ser-46 and similar to P-Ser-HPr, P-Ser-Crh plays a role in carbon-catabolite repression. The sequence around the phosphorylatable Ser-46 in Crh exhibits strong similarity to the corresponding sequence of HPr of Gram-positive and a few Gram-negative bacteria. In contrast, the catalytic His-15, the site of PEP-dependent phosphorylation in HPr, is replaced with a glutamine in Crh. When Gln-15 was exchanged for a histidyl residue, in vitro PEP-dependent enzyme I-catalysed phosphorylation of the mutant Crh was observed. However, expression of the crhQ15H mutant allele did not restore growth of a ptsH deletion strain on the PTS sugars glucose, fructose or mannitol or on the non-PTS sugar glycerol. In contrast, Q15H mutant Crh could phosphorylate the transcriptional activator LevR as well as LevD, the enzyme IIA of the fructose-specific lev-PTS, which together with enzyme I, HPr and LevE forms the phosphorylation cascade regulating induction of the lev operon via LevR. As a consequence, the constitutive expression from the lev promoter observed in a (delta)ptsH strain became inducible with fructose when the crhQ15H allele was expressed in this strain.
