Abstract Bacteria exhibit a number of metabolism-dependent and metabolism-independent processes for the uptake and accumulation of toxic metals. The removal of these metals from environmental sources such as soil, sludge, and wastewaters using microbe-based technologies provide an alternative for their recovery and remediation. Lead (Pb) is a pervasive metal in the environment...

The biofilm growth mode is important in both the intestinal and environmental phases of Vibrio cholerae's life cycle. Regulation of biofilm formation involves several transcriptional regulators and alternative sigma factors. One such factor is the alternative sigma factor, RpoN, which positively regulates biofilm formation. RpoN requires bacterial enhancer-binding proteins (bEBPs) to initiate...

The electrogenic, sodium ion translocating NADH:quinone oxidoreductase (NQR) from Vibrio cholerae is frequent in pathogenic bacteria and a potential target for antibiotics. NQR couples the oxidation of NADH to the formation of a sodium motive force (SMF) and therefore drives important processes such as flagellar rotation, substrate uptake, and energy-dissipating cation-proton antiport. We...

Abstract Peanuts are an economically significant crop that is commonly used for edible oil production; however, they are prone to contamination by aflatoxin (AFT)-producing fungi. Common methods to treat edible oils for AFTs often utilize high temperatures (> 100 °C) to thermally degrade the toxins. However, high temperatures often negatively impact product quality. In this...
