The Agrobacterium tumefaciens min system contributes to the regulation of cell division
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2016)
[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT REQUEST OF AUTHOR.] In A. tumefaciens, the essential FtsZ protein is located at the growth pole before shifting to the mid-cell right before division. Recruitment of FtsZ to mid-cell is required...
PopZ and FtsZ coordinate polar growth termination and cell division in Agrobacterium tumefaciens
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2018)
Understanding how bacterial cells expand their cell walls is an important question with relevance to development of antibiotics. While many studies have focused on the regulation of bacterial elongation utilizing lateral ...
From unique killers to a jumbo genome - isolation and characterization of phages that infect the plant pathogen, Agrobacterium tumefaciens
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2019)
Bacteriophages and their lytic peptides can protect plants from phytopathogens such as Agrobacterium tumefaciens. To better understand mechanisms of phagemediated host killing, we isolated and characterized five lytic ...
