Francisella tularensis is a potent pathogen and a possible bioterrorism agent. Little is known, however, to explain the molecular basis for its virulence and the distinct differences in virulence found between the four recognized subspecies, F. tularensis subsp. tularensis, F. tularensis subsp. mediasiatica, F. tularensis subsp. holarctica, and...

The N-terminal repeat (SAC1) of the S-protein of Lactobacillus acidophilus bound efficiently and specifically to cell wall fragments (CWFs) when fused to green fluorescent protein, whereas the C-terminal repeat (SAC2) did not. Treatment of CWFs with hydrofluoric acid, but not phenol, prevented binding. Apparently, SAC1 is necessary and...

Moraxella catarrhalis is a bacterial species that has been implicated in 15^20% of all cases of otitis media in the USA and the complementresistantvariant of M. catarrhalis has been considered particularly pathogenic. A collection of geographically diverse, complement-sensitive (n = 28) and -resistant strains (n = 47) of M. catarrhalis was...
