How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

We analyze the structure of the cytoplasm by performing single-molecule displacement mapping on a diverse set of native cytoplasmic proteins in exponentially growing Escherichia coli. We evaluate the method for application in small compartments and find that confining effects of the cell membrane affect the diffusion maps. Our analysis reveals that...
The human pathogen Listeria monocytogenes can cope with severe environmental challenges, for which the high molecular weight stressosome complex acts as the sensing hub in a complicated signal transduction pathway. Here, we show the dynamics and functional roles of the stressosome protein RsbR1 and its paralogue, the blue-light receptor RsbL, using...
Introduction: Gene therapy is a breakthrough medical field which focuses on the therapeutic delivery of recombinant nucleic acids in order to treat or prevent a broad spectrum of diseases. However, a number of important obstacles remain before its wide introduction into clinical practice can be envisaged. One of the biggest bottlenecks is the lack...
The human pathogen Listeria monocytogenes is a model microorganism in infection biology. The organism can transform from a saprophyte to an intracellular pathogen and cope with severe environmental challenges, for which the high molecular weight stressosome complex acts as the sensing hub in a complex signal transduction pathway. Yet, little is kno...
Group B streptococci, or Streptococcus agalactiae, are the major cause of severe diseases in newborns and adults. The PAI-A and PAI-A1 pathogenicity islands containing the sspB1 and sspB1a genes, respectively, were found among group B streptococci mobile genetic elements. The presence of sspB genes correlates with urogenital tract infections. The a...
Nowadays, the nanoparticle-based delivery approach is becoming more and more attractive in gene therapy due to its low toxicity and immunogenicity, sufficient packaging capacity, targeting, and straightforward, low-cost, large-scale good manufacturing practice (GMP) production. A number of research works focusing on multilayer structures have explo...
