As the apparent incidence of tree nut allergies rises, the development of MS methods that accurately identify tree nuts in food is critical. However, analyses are limited by few available tree nut protein sequences. We assess the utility of translated genomic and transcriptomic data for library construction with Juglans regia, walnut, as a model. E...

Background: Listeria monocytogenes is a widespread foodborne pathogen that can cause listeriosis, a potentially fatal infection. L. monocytogenes is subdivided into four phylogenetic lineages, with the highest incidence of listeriosis occurring within lineage I followed by lineage II. Strains of L. monocytogenes differ in their phenotypic characte...

Key message Complex protein-containing reproductive secretions are a conserved trait amongst all extant gymnosperms; the pollination drops of most groups include carbohydrate-modifying enzymes and defence proteins. Abstract Pollination drops are aqueous secretions that receive pollen and transport it to the ovule interior in gymnosperms (Coniferal...
Article
Full-text available
Background and aims: Gymnosperms are either wind-pollinated (anemophilous) or both wind- and insect-pollinated (ambophilous). Regardless of pollination mode, ovular secretions play a key role in pollen capture, germination and growth; they are likely also involved in pollinator reward. Little is known about the broad-scale diversity of ovular secr...
Article
Background and aims: Many gymnosperms produce an ovular secretion, the pollination drop, during reproduction. The drops serve as a landing site for pollen, but also contain a suite of ions and organic compounds, including proteins, that suggests diverse roles for the drop during pollination. Proteins in the drops of species ofChamaecyparis,Juniper...

Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Cerro is an infrequent pathogen of humans and other mammals but is frequently isolated from the hindgut of asymptomatic cattle in the United States. To further understand the genomic determinants of S . Cerro specificity for the bovine hindgut, the genome of isolate CFSAN001588 was fully sequenced and dep...

The methylation of DNA bases plays an important role in numerous biological processes including development, gene expression, and DNA replication. Salmonella is an important foodborne pathogen, and methylation in Salmonella is implicated in virulence. Using single molecule real-time (SMRT) DNA-sequencing, we sequenced and assembled the complete gen...

Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Cubana (Salmonella serovar Cubana) is associated with human and animal disease. Here, we used third-generation, single-molecule, real-time DNA sequencing to determine the first complete genome sequence of Salmonella serovar Cubana CFSAN002050, which was isolated from fresh alfalfa sprouts during a multist...

After pollen is delivered to ovules via wind or insects, there are complex interactions between pollen and ovules prior to fertilization in seed plants. These interactions are integral in the functional reproductive biology of seed plants. Among extant gymnosperms there are diverse pollen delivery mechanisms that bring pollen into the ovule, where...

• Premise of the study: Pollination drops are a formative component in gymnosperm pollen-ovule interactions. Proteomics offers a direct method for the discovery of proteins associated with this early stage of sexual reproduction. • Methods: Pollination drops were sampled from eight gymnosperm species: Chamaecyparis lawsoniana (Port Orford cedar), E...
