• Pseudomonas
  • Four chemotypes of the rough lipopolysaccharides (LPS) membrane from Pseudomonas aeruginosa were investigated by a combined approach of explicit water molecular dynamics (MD) simulations and Poisson-Boltzmann continuum electrostatics with the goal to deliver the distribution of the electrostatic potential across the membrane.

  • virulence
  • My undergraduate research advisor Dr. Gee Lau's laboratory has previously shown that multiple PA virulence factors, including pyocyanin, lipopolysaccharides (LPS), flagellum, and alginate are capable of causing mucus hypersecretion in airways. (illinois.edu)
  • The family also includes 3-deoxy-D-manno-octulosonic acid kinase (KDO kinase) from Haemophilus influenzae, which phosphorylates Kdo-lipid IV(A), a lipopolysaccharide precursor, and is involved in virulence. (wikipedia.org)
  • Metabolism
  • The aim of this study was to assess both glycerol permeability and metabolism in undifferentiated 3T3-L1 cells (UDCs) as well as in untreated (CTL-DCs) versus lipopolysaccharide (LPS-DCs)-treated differentiated 3T3-L1 adipocytes. (mdpi.com)
