- ... Marine bacteria catabolize carbohydrate polymers of algae, which synthesize these structurally diverse molecules in ocean surface waters. Although algal glycans are an abundant carbon and energy source in the ocean, the molecular details that enable specific recognition between algal glycans and bacterial degraders remain largely unknown. Here we characterized a surface protein, GMSusD from the pl ...

- ... Marine microscopic algae carry out about half of the global carbon dioxide fixation into organic matter. They provide organic substrates for marine microbes such as members of the Bacteroidetes that degrade algal polysaccharides using carbohydrate‐active enzymes (CAZymes). In Bacteroidetes genomes CAZyme encoding genes are mostly grouped in distinct regions termed polysaccharide utilization loci ( ...

- ... Type six secretion systems (T6SSs) are found in many Gram-negative bacteria and are important for their virulence or their ecological competitiveness. The multicomponent T6SSs are responsible for the translocation of effector molecules into target eukaryotic or prokaryotic cells. The Francisella pathogenicity island encodes a putative T6SS that Francisella novicida requires for intramacrophage gro ...
