Fitness Measurements of Evolved Esherichia coli
Authors:  Migla Miskinyte and Isabel Gordo, date: 09/05/2014, view: 3610, 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: 3529, 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 ...

Haemagglutination Inhibition (HI) Assay of Influenza Viruses with Monoclonal Antibodies
Heamagglutination is inhibited when antibodies are present because antibodies to influenza virus will prevent attachment of the virus to red blood cells. The highest dilution of antibody that prevents hemagglutination is called the HI titer. The ...

Mouse Models of Uncomplicated and Fatal Malaria
Authors:  Brian W. Huang, Emily Pearman and Charles C. Kim, date: 07/05/2015, view: 4570, Q&A: 0
Mouse models have demonstrated utility in delineating the mechanisms underlying many aspects of malaria immunology and physiology. The most common mouse models of malaria employ the rodent-specific parasite species Plasmodium berghei, P. ...
