    Nutrient dominance governs the assembly of microbial communities in mixed nutrient environments

    Sylvie Estrela et al.
    There are regularities in how specific nutrients combine together to shape the taxonomic composition of self-assembled communities, with some types of nutrients dominating other types.

    An interbacterial DNA deaminase toxin directly mutagenizes surviving target populations

    Marcos H de Moraes et al.
    Interbacterial interactions can promote mutagenesis, and possibly adaptation, when intoxicated cells survive exposure to type VI secretion-delivered DNA deaminase toxins.

    Asymmetric random walks reveal that the chemotaxis network modulates flagellar rotational bias in Helicobacter pylori

    Jyot D Antani et al.
    Asymmetric forward and backward swimming speeds reveal that the rotational bias, and not reversal frequencies, is an appropriate measure of chemotaxis signaling in Helicobacter pylori..

    Specificity in glycosylation of multiple flagellins by the modular and cell cycle regulated glycosyltransferase FlmG

    Silvia Ardissone et al.
    Glycosylation of flagellins with pseudaminic acid in the bacterial cytoplasm governed by an unknown type of modular glycosyltransferase harboring an N-terminal substrate binding domain and a C-terminal glycosyltransferase domain.

    Modeling the metabolic interplay between a parasitic worm and its bacterial endosymbiont allows the identification of novel drug targets

    David M Curran et al.
    A genome scale model of Brugia malayi metabolism illustrates a dynamic reliance on energy production pathways across its life cycle and identifies new drugs with experimentally supported anti-parasitic properties.

    Distinct cytoskeletal proteins define zones of enhanced cell wall synthesis in Helicobacter pylori

    Jennifer A Taylor et al.
    The helical bacterium Helicobacter pylori patterns cell wall synthesis using two distinct cytoskeletal proteins, CcmA and MreB, to achieve its characteristic shape.
