    • The ESX System in Bacillus subtilis Mediates Protein Secretion 

      Huppert, Laura A.; Ramsdell, Talia L.; Chase, Michael R.; Sarracino, David A.; Fortune, Sarah M.; Burton, Briana M. (Public Library of Science, 2014)
      Esat-6 protein secretion systems (ESX or Ess) are required for the virulence of several human pathogens, most notably Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Staphylococcus aureus. These secretion systems are defined by a conserved ...
    • Missense Mutations Allow a Sequence-Blind Mutant of SpoIIIE to Successfully Translocate Chromosomes during Sporulation 

      Bose, Baundauna; Reed, Sydney E.; Besprozvannaya, Marina; Burton, Briana M. (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      SpoIIIE directionally pumps DNA across membranes during Bacillus subtilis sporulation and vegetative growth. The sequence-reading domain (γ domain) is required for directional DNA transport, and its deletion severely impairs ...
    • Morphogenic Protein RodZ Interacts with Sporulation Specific SpoIIE in Bacillus subtilis 

      Muchová, Katarína; Chromiková, Zuzana; Bradshaw, Niels; Wilkinson, Anthony J.; Barák, Imrich (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      The first landmark in sporulation of Bacillus subtilis is the formation of an asymmetric septum followed by selective activation of the transcription factor σF in the resulting smaller cell. How the morphological transformations ...
