    Magnetospirillum sp. pMbN1 prefers benzoate

    The denitrifying alphaproteobacterium Magnetospirillum sp. pMbN1 shows a preference for benzoate over succinate and 4-methylbenzoate when grown under anaerobic conditions, in contrast to other bacterial strains studied, and may reflect a tuning towards metabolic efficiency.

    Classic macroautophagy not needed by Brucella

    Contrary to previous results the zoonotic pathogen Brucella melitensi, like Brucella abortus, does not subvert the the classical macroautophagy pathway to reach its replicative niche or to stimulate its replication.

    Evolution of bacterial symbionts

    Closely related bacteria from a monophyletic clade of symbionts (‘Candidatus Streptomyces philanthi’) found in solitary digger wasps can experience very different evolutionary trajectories in response to the symbiotic lifestyle, which is reflected in different degrees of metabolic versatility and host-dependency.

  • Genetic diversity of cereulide biosynthesis gene cluster

    The emetic Bacillus cereus group display sequence diversity and different genomic locations in their cereulide biosynthesis gene clusters, whilst association with mobile genetic elements suggests a key role in the transmission of this toxin gene cluster.
