Pyocyanin Extraction and Quantitative Analysis in Swarming Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Authors:  Michelle M. King, Manita Guragain, Svetlana A. Sarkisova and Marianna A. Patrauchan, date: 12/05/2016, view: 3057, Q&A: 0
This protocol describes the quantification of pyocyanin extracted from swarming colonies of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Pyocyanin is a secondary metabolite and a major virulence factor, whose production is inducible and varies highly under ...
Measurement of Intracellular Calcium Concentration in Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Authors:  Manita Guragain, Anthony K. Campbell and Marianna A. Patrauchan, date: 12/05/2016, view: 1933, Q&A: 0
Characterization of the molecular mechanisms of calcium (Ca2+) regulation of bacterial physiology and virulence requires tools enabling measuring and monitoring the intracellular levels of free calcium (Ca2+in). ...
