Discrete cyclic di-GMP-dependent control of bacterial predation versus axenic growth in Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus (2012)
Journal Article
Hobley, L., Fung, R. K. Y., Lambert, C., Harris, M. A., Dabh, J. M., King, S. S., …Sockett, R. E. (2012). Discrete cyclic di-GMP-dependent control of bacterial predation versus axenic growth in Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus. PLoS Pathogens, 8(2), doi:10.1371/journal.ppat.1002493. ISSN 1553-7366

Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus is a Delta-proteobacterium that oscillates between free-living growth and predation on Gram-negative bacteria including important pathogens of man, animals and plants. After entering the prey periplasm, killing the prey and... Read More

The Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus twin-arginine transport system has roles in predatory and prey-independent growth (2011)
Journal Article
Chang, C., Hobley, L., Till, R., Capeness, M., Kanna, M., Burtt, W., …Sockett, R. E. (2011). The Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus twin-arginine transport system has roles in predatory and prey-independent growth. Microbiology, 157(11), doi:10.1099/mic.0.052449-0. ISSN 1350-0872

Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus grows in one of two ways: either (i) predatorily [in a host-dependent (HD) manner], when it invades the periplasm of another Gram-negative bacterium, exporting into the prey co-ordinated waves of soluble enzymes using the p... Read More
