Fitness Measurements of Evolved Esherichia coli
Authors:  Migla Miskinyte and Isabel Gordo, date: 09/05/2014, view: 7988, Q&A: 0
Bacteria can adapt very rapidly to novel selective pressures. In the transition from commensalism to pathogenicity bacteria have to face and adapt to the host immune system. Specifically, the antagonistic interaction imposed by one of the first line ...
Evolution of Escherichia coli to Macrophage Cell Line
Authors:  Migla Miskinyte and Isabel Gordo, date: 09/05/2014, view: 7098, Q&A: 0
The genomes of species of Escherichia coli (E. coli) show an extraordinary amount of diversity, which include commensal strains and strains belonging to different pathovars. Many strains of E. coli, which can cause mild or ...

Eimeria vermiformis Infection Model of Murine Small Intestine
Authors:  Patrícia Figueiredo-Campos, Cristina Ferreira, Birte Blankenhaus and Marc Veldhoen, date: 12/20/2018, view: 1322, Q&A: 0
Eimeria vermiformis is a tissue specific, intracellular protozoan that infects the murine small intestinal epithelia, which has been widely used as a coccidian model to study mucosal immunology. This mouse infection model is valuable to ...
