Role of the multidrug resistance efflux pump MexCD-OprJ in the Pseudomonas aeruginosa quorum sensing response (2018)
Journal Article
Alcalde-Rico, M., Olivares Pacheco, J. A., Alvarez-Ortega, C., Camara, M., & Martinez, J. L. (2018). Role of the multidrug resistance efflux pump MexCD-OprJ in the Pseudomonas aeruginosa quorum sensing response. Frontiers in Microbiology, 9, doi:10.3389/fmicb.2018.02752

Multidrug efflux pumps constitute a category of antibiotic resistance determinants that are a part of the core bacterial genomes. Given their conservation, it is conceivable that they present functions beyond the extrusion of antibiotics currently us... Read More

RpoS differentially affects the general stress response and biofilm formation in the endophytic Serratia plymuthica G3 (2015)
Journal Article
Liu, X., Wu, Y., Chen, Y., Xu, F., Halliday, N., Gao, K., …Camara Garcia, M. (2016). RpoS differentially affects the general stress response and biofilm formation in the endophytic Serratia plymuthica G3. Research in Microbiology, 167(3), 168-177. doi:10.1016/j.resmic.2015.11.003

The σS subunit RpoS of RNA polymerase functions as a master regulator of the general stress response in Escherichia coli and related bacteria. RpoS has been reported to modulate biocontrol properties in the rhizobacterium Serratia plymuthica IC1270.... Read More

Plant-influenced gene expression in the rice endophyte Burkholderia kururiensis M130 (2015)
Journal Article
Coutinho, B. G., Licastro, D., Mendonça-Previato, L., Cámara, M., & Venturi, V. (2015). Plant-influenced gene expression in the rice endophyte Burkholderia kururiensis M130. Molecular Plant-Microbe Interactions, 28(1), 10-21. doi:10.1094/MPMI-07-14-0225-R

Burkholderia kururiensis M130 is one of the few rice endophytic diazotrophic bacteria identified thus far which is able to enhance growth of rice. To date, very little is known of how strain M130 and other endophytes enter and colonize plants. Here,... Read More
