Analysis of the lipopolysaccharide-mediated function of Salmonella adhesins in the presence of bacteriophages

Gram-negative bacteria are major pathogens to combat, especially as already resistances to last resort antibiotics of the carbapenem class have occurred. Their outer membrane consists of a lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-phospholipid heterobilayer. Bacteriophages can use LPS as receptor that triggers pa...

Examining individual differences in patterns of touch appreciation in relation to psychological well-being and health

There are large inter-individual differences in the experience of sensory stimulation. We have previously shown that these differences are also related to later behavior. For example, subjects who initially rated a food odour as particularly pleasant also ate more of it after 50 minutes of odour ...
