    • Distribution of siderophore gene systems on a Vibrionaceae phylogeny: Database searches, phylogenetic analyses and evolutionary perspectives 

      Thode, Sunniva Katharina; Rojek, Ewelina; Kozlowski, Mikolaj; Ahmad, Rafi; Haugen, Peik (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-02-14)
      Siderophores are small molecules synthesized and secreted by bacteria and fungi to scavenge iron. Extracellular ferri-siderohores are recognized by cognate receptors on the cell surface for transport over membranes. Several siderophore systems from <i>Vibrionaceae</i> representatives are known and well understood, e.g., the molecular structure of the siderophore, the biosynthesis gene cluster ...
    • Expression profiling reveals Spot 42 small RNA as a key regulator in the central metabolism of Aliivibrio salmonicida 

      Hansen, Geir Åsmund; Ahmad, Rafi; Hjerde, erik; Fenton, Christopher Graham; Willassen, Nils Peder; Haugen, Peik (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Spot 42 was discovered in Escherichia coli nearly 40 years ago as an abundant, small and unstable RNA. Its biological role has remained obscure until recently, and is today implicated in having broader roles in the central and secondary metabolism. Spot 42 is encoded by the spf gene. The gene is ubiquitous in the Vibrionaceae family of gamma-proteobacteria. One member of this family, Aliivibrio ...
