Project description:Analysis of Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1 treated with 200 µM sphingomyelin. Results provide insight into the response to sphingomyelin in P. aeruginosa. Overall design: P. aeruginosa PAO1 was cultured in the presence and absence of sphingomyelin. The orginal culture was divided into two parts. One was treated with 200 μM sphingomyelin and the other served as a control. The experiment was performed in tripricates.
Project description:Genomic DNA from Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains PAO1 and PA14 Overall design: Pseudomonas aeruginosa genomic DNA was isolated, fragmented and hybridized to Affymetrix Pseudomonas GeneChips.
Project description:The purpose of this study was to define the TZD effect in Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Transcriptional profiling of Pseudomonas aeruginosa wild-type strain,reference strain PAO1, as control Vs. PAO1 strain exposed to a final 0.02mM of TZD derivative ((z)-5-octylidenethiazolidine-2,4-dione).
Project description:The ParS/ParR two component regulatory system plays important roles for multidrug resistance in Pseudomonas aeruginosa. In this study we report RNA-seq analyses of the transcriptomes of P. aeruginosa PAO1 wild type and par mutants growing in a minimal medium containing 2% casamino acids. This has allowed the quantification of PAO1 transcriptome, and further defines the regulon that is dependent on the ParS/ParR system for expression. Our RNA-seq analysis produced the first estimates of absolute transcript abundance for the 5570 coding genes in P. aeruginosa PAO1. Comparative transcriptomics of P. aeruginosa PAO1 and par mutants identified a total of 464 genes regulated by ParS and ParR. Results also showed that mutations in the parS/parR system abolished the expression of the mexEF-oprN operon by down-regulating the regulatory gene mexS. In addition to affecting drug resistance genes, transcripts of quorum sensing genes (rhlIR and pqsABCDE-phnAB), were significantly up-regulated in both parS and parR mutants. Consistent with these results, a significant portion of the ParS/ParR regulated genes belonged to the MexEF-OprN and quorum sensing regulons. Deletion of par genes also lead to overproduction of phenazines and increased swarming motility, consistent with the up-regulation of quorum sensing genes. Our results established a link among ParS/ParR, MexEF-OprN and quorum sensing in Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Based on these results, we propose a model to illustrate the relationship among these regulatory systems in P. aeruginosa. A total of 9 samples were analyzed in AB medium + 2% casamino acids, Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1 wild type strain (3 replicates); Pseudomonas aeruginosa parS mutant (3 replicates); Pseudomonas aeruginosa parR mutant (3 replicates).
Project description:Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1 contacted with and without poplar roots gene expression Poplar contacted with and without PAO1 gene expression. All samples cultured in 1 x hrp + 0.25 % sucrose Experiment Overall Design: Strains: P. aeruginosa PAO1 WT Experiment Overall Design: Medium: 1 x hrp + 0.25 % sucrose Experiment Overall Design: Biofilm grown on poplar root compared to biofilm grown on glasswool Experiment Overall Design: Poplar roots grown
Project description:In this experiment the transcriptional response of the opportunistic human pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa to sublethal concentrations of NaClO was investigated. To this aim, four independent cultures of P. aeruginosa PAO1 grown in minimal medium BM2 were treated with NaClO (2 ug/ml) for 1 h at 37 C followed by RNA extraction and microarray analysis. Untreated cultures served as controls.
