    A novel decoy strategy for polymyxin resistance in Acinetobacter baumannii

    Jaeeun Park et al.
    Outer membrane vesicles serve as decoys to reduce the chance of direct polymyxin B (PMB) binding to cells, which partly explains why many clinical isolates and microbial communities can be protected against PMB treatment.

    Seasonal variation and etiologic inferences of childhood pneumonia and diarrhea mortality in India

    Daniel S Farrar et al.
    Nationally-representative verbal autopsies can be linked to seasonal patterns, clinical syndromes, and climate regions to describe novel insights regarding the microbiologic etiologies of childhood pneumonia and diarrhea in India.

    Replication Study: Intestinal inflammation targets cancer-inducing activity of the microbiota

    Kathryn Eaton et al.
    Editors' Summary: This Replication Study has reproduced some parts of the original paper but it also contains results that are not consistent with other parts of the original paper.

    Functional dichotomy and distinct nanoscale assemblies of a cell cycle-controlled bipolar zinc-finger regulator

    Johann Mignolet et al.
    Forward genetics and super-resolution microscopy identifies ZitP as a conserved multifunctional regulator that accumulates at both cell extremities in distinct macromolecular structures to perform different functions in the asymmetric model bacterium Caulobacter crescentus.

    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..

    Ribosome surface properties may impose limits on the nature of the cytoplasmic proteome

    Paul E Schavemaker et al.
    The diffusion coefficients of proteins in the cytoplasm depend on their net charge and the distribution of charge over the protein surface, with positive proteins moving up to 100-fold slower because they bind to ribosomes.

    Evolutionary stability of collateral sensitivity to antibiotics in the model pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa

    Camilo Barbosa et al.
    Evolutionary trade-offs enhance efficacy of antibiotic therapy by constraining bacterial adaptation in dependence of drug order and trade-off effect size.

    Bacterial flagellar capping proteins adopt diverse oligomeric states

    Sandra Postel et al.
    The first high-resolution structure of a bacterial flagellar cap protein, FliD, reveals new insights into the assembly of bacterial flagella.

    Interferon receptor-deficient mice are susceptible to eschar-associated rickettsiosis

    Thomas P Burke et al.
    Type I interferon and interferon-γ signaling redundantly protects mice from the tick-borne pathogen Rickettsia parkeri in the skin, and interferon receptor-deficient mice are a tractable model for investigating rickettsiosis.
