Levels of Ca2+-Dipicolinic Acid in Individual Bacillus Spores Determined Using Microfluidic Raman Tweezers 2011 64697 Pyridine-2 6-dicarboxylic acid (dipicolinic acid [DPA]) in a 1:1 chelate with calcium ion (Ca-DPA) comprises 5 to 15% of the dry weight of spores of Bacillus species. Ca-DPA is important in spore resistance to many environmental stresses and in spore...
Raman tweezers provide the fingerprint of cells supporting the late stages of KSHV reactivation 2011 64697 Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) has both latent and lytic phases of replication. The molecular switch that triggers a reactivation is still unclear. Cells from S phase of cell cycle provide apt conditions for an active reactivation. In...
Role of Dipicolinic Acid in the Germination Stability and Viability of Spores of Bacillus subtilis 2011 64697 Spores of Bacillus subtilis spoVF strains that cannot synthesize dipicolinic acid (DPA) but take it up during sporulation were prepared in medium with various DPA concentrations and the germination and viability of these spores as well as the DPA con...
