    • Bacteriophages in the control of pathogenic vibrios 

      Plaza, Nicolás; Castillo, Daniel; Pérez Reytor, Diliana; Higuera Guajardo, Gastón; García, Katherine; Bastias, Roberto (Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, 2018)
      Vibrios are common inhabitants of marine and estuarine environments. Some of them can be pathogenic to humans and/or marine animals using a broad repertory of virulence factors. Lately, several reports have indicated that ...
    • Insight into the origin and evolution of the vibrio parahaemolyticus pandemic strain 

      Espejo Torres, Romilio; García, Katherine; Plaza, Nicolás (Frontiers media SA, 2017)
      A strain of Vibrio parahaemolyticus that emerged in 1995 caused the first known pandemic involving this species. This strain comprises clonal autochthonous ocean-dwelling bacteria whose evolution has occurred in the ocean ...
    • Multiple ribosomal RNA operons in bacteria; their concerted evolution and potential consequences on the rate of evolution of their 16S rRNA 

      Espejo, R.; Plaza, Nicolás (Frontiers Media, 2018-06)
      Bacterial species differ greatly in the number and location of the rRNA operons which may be present in the bacterial chromosomes and plasmids. Most bacterial species contain more than one ribosomal RNA operon copy in their ...
    • Role of non-coding regulatory RNA in the virulence of human pathogenic vibrios 

      Pérez Reytor, Diliana; Plaza, Nicolás; Espejo, Romilio T.; Navarrete, Paola; Bastías, Roberto; García, Katherine (Frontiers Media, 2017)
      In recent decades, the identification of small non-coding RNAs in bacteria has revealed an important regulatory mechanism of gene expression involved in the response to environmental signals and to the control of virulence. ...
