Aerobic-Type Ribonucleotide Reductase in the Anaerobe Bacteroides fragilis 2011 65052 Bacteroides fragilis a component of the normal intestinal flora is an obligate anaerobe capable of long-term survival in the presence of air. Survival is attributed to an elaborate oxidative stress response that controls the induction of more than 28...
Characterization of Bacteroides fragilis Hemolysins and Regulation and Synergistic Interactions of HlyA and HlyB 2011 65052 This study describes the presence of 10 hemolysin orthologs in the genome of the opportunistic human anaerobic pathogen Bacteroides fragilis which is currently classified as a nonhemolytic bacterium. The hemolysins were designated HlyA through HlyI p...
Oxidative stress response in an anaerobe Bacteroides fragilis: a role for catalase in protection against hydrogen peroxide. 2011 65052 Survival of Bacteroides fragilis in the presence of oxygen was dependent on the ability of bacteria to synthesize ew proteins as determined by the inhibition of protein synthesis after oxygen exposure. The B. fragilis protein rofile was significantly...
