From unique killers to a jumbo genome - isolation and characterization of phages that infect the plant pathogen, Agrobacterium tumefaciens
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2019)
against A. tumefaciens C58. These phages come in different shapes and sizes—from T7-like phages with podoviral morphology and isometric heads to T4-like phages with myoviral morphology and a contractile tail—and exhibit varying host ranges and killing...
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 ...
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 ...
