Description

Abstract Text:
Two-component regulatory (TCR) systems are signal transduction pathways that provide organisms with information about its surroundings. We have created a library of Staphylococcus aureus mutant strains that contain individual deletions in the genes that encode two-component regulatory systems. We will use phenotypic analysis to determine if any of the strains in our mutant library have alterations when responding to cellular stressors or differ in virulence factor production. Strains that display phenotypes different from the wild-type will be further analyzed using classical and molecular genetics.

It is important to recognize, and consider in any interpretation of Federal RePORTER data, that the publication and patent information cannot be associated with any particular year of a research project. The lag between research being conducted and the availability of its results in a publication or patent award varies substantially. For that reason, it's difficult, if not impossible, to associate a publication or patent with any specific year of the project. Likewise, it is not possible to associate a publication or patent with any particular supplement to a research project or a particular subproject of a multi-project grant.
