Agrobacterium tumefaciens C58 (UWash/Dupont) is a Gram-negative, non-sporing, motile, rod-shaped bacterium. It is a plant pathogen capable of transferring a defined segment of DNA to a host plant replacing the transferred tumor-inducing genes with exogenous DNA generating a gall tumor. A. tumefaciens strain C58 has an unusual structure consisting of one circular and one[..]

Gram-negative bacteria of the genus Acinetobacter are classified in the gamma subdivision of the Gram-negative proteobacteria and more precisely on the Moraxellaceae branch. Isolates of Acinetobacter are characterized as strictly aerobic non-motile heterotrophic mesophiles, capable of utilising a great variety of substrates as carbon sources, from alkanes to organic acids, especially aromatic[..]

Aromatoleum aromaticum (strain EbN1) now known as Azoarcus sp. (strain EbN1) is a proteobacteria with one chromosome and two plasmids, encoding for 10 anaerobic and 4 aerobic aromatic degradation pathways. It is associated with microbial degradation of aromatic and other refractory compounds, including hydrocarbons in anoxic waters and soils. Strain EbN1 is an aromatic-degrading[..]

Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus is a tiny and highly motile Delta-Proteobacterium that preys on other Gram-negative bacteria. B. bacteriovorus attaches itself to the cell wall of its prey and invades the cell where it goes through a full-life cycle. After it reproduces, the offspring burst out of the cell. Despite its small size, it has a relatively large genome encoding more than[..]

Bordetella bronchiseptica, Bordetella pertussis and Bordetella parapertussis and are closely related Gram-negative Beta-proteobacteria that colonize the respiratory tracts of mammals. B. bronchiseptica causes chronic respiratory infections in a wide range of animals. B. bronchiseptica is encountered as a commensal or colonizer of the respiratory[..]

Rhizobium, Bradyrhizobium, Mesorhizobium, Sinorhizobium and Azorhizobium-known as Rhizobia-are Gram-negative, nitrogen-fixing bacteria of agronomic importance because they perform nitrogen-fixing symbiosis with leguminous plants. They are responsible for the world’s largest portion of fixed atmospheric nitrogen. Bradyrhizobium japonicum has been used since 1957 in molecular[..]

Burkholderia mallei are gram negative bacteria and are evolved as obligate parasite of horses, mules, and donkeys with no other known natural reservoir. B.mallei is regarded as a potential biological weapon because it is highly infectious as an aerosol and results in a disease that is painful, incapacitating, difficult to diagnose, and often fatal. Glutathione is a tripeptide[..]

Brucella is a Gram-negative aerobic pathogen that is distringuished from most other pathogens because it does not have "obvious virulence factors" like capsules, fimbriae, flagella, exotoxins, exproteases, or other exoenzymes, cytolysins, resistance forms, antigenic variation, plamids, or lysogenic phages (Ref.1). Brucella sp. causes a "zoonotic disease endemic[..]

Bordetella pertussis, Bordetella parapertussis and Bordetella bronchiseptica are closely related Gram-negative Beta-proteobacteria that colonizes the respiratory tracts of mammals. B. parapertussis causes whooping cough in a wide range of animals. It produces a complex array of adhesins, aggressins and toxins that are presumed to be important in the[..]

Bordetella is a Gram-negative Beta-proteobacteria that colonizes the respiratory tracts of mammals. It produces a complex array of adhesins, aggressins and toxins that are presumed to be important in the colonisation of its human host and in ensuring its survival and propagation. The organism also has highly sophisticated mechanisms for regulating virulence factor expression, in[..]

Glutathione is an intracellular low-molecular-mass thiol which serves as a major cellular line of defense against oxidative stimuli at several levels.  Glutathione plays important roles in antioxidant defense, nutrient metabolism, and regulation of cellular. Glutathione deficiency contributes to oxidative stress leading to aging and the pathogenesis of many diseases (including[..]

Bartonella quintana is a fastidious, Gram-negative bacteria pathogen and the etiologic agent of the trench fever. This disease was first identified in the trenches of World War I. The bacterium lives in the gut of the body louse and is transmitted in their faeces. It enters the human body through damaged skin or through the conjunctiva of the eye. Promiscuity and dirty conditions in[..]
