Remembrance of things past: Bacterial memory of gut inflammation

Added: 29.05.2017 22:23 | 0 views | 0 comments

A team of scientists has designed a powerful bacterial sensor with a stable gene circuit in a colonizing bacterial strain that can record gut inflammation for six months in mice. This study offers a solution to previous challenges associated with living diagnostics and may bring them closer to use in human patients.

Bioelectricity new weapon to fight dangerous infection

Added: 26.05.2017 13:45 | 1 views | 0 comments

Changing natural electrical signaling in non-neural cells improves innate immune response to bacterial infections and injury. Tadpoles that received therapeutics, including those used in humans for other purposes, which depolarized their cells had higher survival rates when infected with E. coli than controls. The research has applications for treatment of emerging diseases and traumatic injury in humans.
