Demonstration of antibiotic-induced tolerance development in tropical agroecosystems through physiological profiling of sediment microbial communities
Agricultural use of antibiotics differs quantitatively and qualitatively in tropical and temperate countries. To gain insight into the nature and magnitude of physiological adaptations prompted by these drugs in microbial ...
Phenotypes controlled by the Brucella abortus two component system BvrR/BvrS are differentially impacted by BvrR phosphorylation
Brucella abortus is a zoonotic pathogen whose virulence depends on its ability to survive intracellularly at the endoplasmic reticulum derived compartment. The two-component system BvrR/BvrS (BvrRS) is essential for ...
Two color morphs of the pelagic yellow-bellied sea snake, pelamis platura, from different locations of Costa Rica: snake venomics, toxicity, and neutralization by antivenom
(Journal of Proteomics Volume 103, 30 May 2014, Pages 137–152, 2014-05-30)
The yellow-bellied sea snake, Pelamis platura, is the most broadly distributed snake species. Despite being endowed with a highly lethal venom, a proteomic analysis of its toxin composition was unavailable. The venoms of ...
Occurrence of Aliarcobacter spp in fresh and precut vegetables of common use in San José, Costa Rica
Aliarcobacter is a Gram-negative rod that can cause disease both in animals and human beings. Several studies have evidenced its presence in a wide variety of foods. Given that the number of foodborne illness outbreaks ...
Clostridium perfringens Phospholipase C, an Archetypal Bacterial Virulence Factor, induces the Formation of Extracellular Traps by Human Neutrophils
Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) are networks of DNA and various microbicidal proteins, released to the extracellular space to kill invading microorganisms and prevent their dissemination. However, a NETs excess is ...
Benchmarking AI-based plasmid annotation tools for antibiotic resistance genes mining from metagenome of the Virilla River, Costa Rica
Bioinformatics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) stand as rapidly evolving tools that have facilitated the annotation of mobile genetic elements (MGEs), enabling the prediction of health risk factors in polluted environments, ...
