Survival: For bacteria, the neighbors co-determine which cell dies first

Added: 17.07.2019 21:18 | 8 views | 0 comments

Bacteria do not simply perish in hunger phases fortuitously; rather, the surrounding cells have a say as well. A research team has now discovered that two factors, above all, decide over life and death: the energy required to continue living and the efficiency with which surviving cells can recycle biomass from dead cells.

Red algae steal genes from bacteria to cope with environmental stresses

Added: 17.07.2019 21:18 | 7 views | 0 comments

It's a case of grand larceny that could lead to new fuels and cleanup chemicals. Ten species of red algae stole about 1 percent of their genes from bacteria to cope with toxic metals and salt stress in hot springs, according to a new study. These red algal species, known as Cyanidiales, also stole many genes that allow them to absorb and process different sources of carbon in the environment to provide additional sources of energy and supplement their photosynthetic lifestyle.

'Semi-synthetic' bacteria churn out unnatural proteins

Added: 17.07.2019 21:18 | 13 views | 0 comments

Synthetic biologists seek to create new life with forms and functions not seen in nature. Although scientists are a long way from making a completely artificial life form, they have made semi-synthetic organisms that have an expanded genetic code, allowing them to produce never-before-seen proteins. Now, researchers have optimized a semi-synthetic bacteria to efficiently produce proteins containing unnatural amino acids.

Newly identified bacteria-killing protein needs vitamin A to work

Added: 17.07.2019 18:40 | 1 views | 0 comments

People who have inadequate vitamin A in their diets are more susceptible to skin infection, yet how that vitamin affects skin immunity has been unclear. New research sheds some light on that mystery by identifying a previously unknown bacteria-killing protein on the epidermis that requires the vitamin to work.

Mouse model validates how 'good' and 'bad' bacteria affect acne

Added: 17.07.2019 18:40 | 3 views | 0 comments

Researchers have generated a new mouse model that mimics human acne for the first time, and used it to validate the concept of 'good' and 'bad' acne bacteria and introduce new possibilities for targeted treatments and vaccines.
