Examples

  • Φ11 as previously described The Voges-Proskauer assay was used to assess the production of acetoin and 2,3-butanediol as previously described

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • A previous report described construction of a UAMS-1 alsSD mutant (KB1097) and concluded that mutation of alsSD eliminated acetoin production and resulted in reduced murein hydrolase activity and reduced stationary phase survival

  • This suggests that mutation of alsSD may limit the release of extracellular DNA as well as limit the capacity to produce acetoin and maintain pH homeostasis.

  • One possible explanation for these results is that alsSD is part of a pathway that includes acetoin reductase, which is required to convert acetoin to 2,3-butanediol, and expression of the corresponding gene (SA0239 in the N315 genome) was also reduced in a sarA mutant may not fully restore the ability to convert pyruvate to 2,3-butanediol.

  • Based on these considerations, we investigated the role of alsSD, nuc, and extracellular proteases in S. aureus biofilm formation with a specific emphasis on whether any or all of these factors contribute to the biofilm-deficient phenotype of a Impact of sarA on alsSD expression, acetoin production, stationary phase survival and biofilm formation The alsS and alsD genes constitute a bicistronic operon and encode acetolactate synthase and acetolactate decarboxylase respectively.
