RNA is a key component of extracellular DNA networks in Pseudomonas biofilms

27. nov. 2023

In Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilms, extracellular RNA (eRNA) combines with DNA to form structural fibers. This interaction, crucial for biofilm integrity, is rich in specific mRNA transcripts, impacting the biofilm's viscoelastic properties.

Escherichia coli displays a conserved membrane proteomic response to a range of alcohols

3. okt. 2023

Alcohol is a good and environment-friendly fuel that can be microbially produced, capable of eliminating many of the limitations of the present-day fossil fuels.

Surface-layer is a public-good matrix exopolymer for microbial community organisation in environmental anammox biofilms

4. mar. 2023

Delving into the mysteries of biofilm components, we examine the role and impact of extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) in an anammox biofilm, especially within non-culturable environmental microbes.

Microbial biofilms are shaped by the constant dialogue between biological and physical forces in the extracellular matrix

11. dec. 2022

The biofilm matrix, with its diversity of extracellular polymeric substances (EPS), remains a poorly understood entity. It consists of a heterogeneous, multifunctional microenvironment that imparts a range of emergent properties to the biofilm, including social cooperation and resource sharing, adaptation to environmental changes, and resistance to harmful chemicals and antibiotics.

The biofilm matrix: multitasking in a shared space

20. sep. 2022

The biofilm matrix can be considered to be a shared space for the encased microbial cells, comprising a wide variety of extracellular polymeric substances (EPS), such as polysaccharides, proteins, amyloids, lipids and extracellular DNA (eDNA), as well as membrane vesicles and humic-like microbially derived refractory substances.
