Biochemical characterization of the two novel mgCas12a proteins from the human gut metagenome

Discovery of 11 new Cas12a candidates from a human gut microbiome database To discover new members of the Cas12a protein family, we built a pipeline that searches and sorts out new candidates from the National Center for Biotechnological Information (NCBI) human metagenome database. Using this search pipeline (Fig. 1a), we initially…

Plasmid-Encoded VIM-2-pProducing Pseudomonas stutzeri | IDR

Introduction Pseudomonas stutzeri is an aerobic, nonfermenting, active, Gram-negative oxidase-positive bacterium with unique colony morphology.1,2 Burri and Stutzer first described it in 1985,3 and the specific metabolic properties, such as denitrification, degradation of aromatic compounds, and nitrogen fixation, distinguish it from other pseudomonads species.2,4 Historically, P. stutzeri was not commonly…
