  • An identification key for insects of the Culicoides genus present in Portugal was elaborated in the Parasitology and Parasitic Diseases Laboratory of CIISA. This identification key, with scientific and pedagogical purposes and directed to researchers and students, followed work included in the PhD thesis of David Wilson Russo Ramilo (Post-doctoral researcher of CIISA), titled ?Phenotypic and genetic characterization of Culicoides (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) in Portugal and comparison of the effect of…
  •  In a long–lasting series of collaborations with national and international institutions including the Faculty of Sciences and Technology (Universidade Nova de Lisboa), The Weizmann Institute of Science (Israel), Newcastle University (UK) and Queen’s University (Canada), FMV-CIISA researchers are contributing to the elucidation of the unique molecular mechanisms used by anaerobic bacteria for cellular attachment of cellulosomes. Cellulosomes (Fig. 1) are one of Nature’s most intricate multi-enzyme complexes dedicated to degrade…

  • A study developed by CIISA scientists in collaboration with colleagues at the Universities of Newcastle (UK), Copenhagen (DK), Leeds (UK) and the CNRS (France) revealed that the expansion of protein modules observed in multi-enzyme complexes expressed by rumen bacteria, such as Ruminococcus flavefaciens, contributes to an extended carbohydrate binding profile that supports efficient plant cell wall degradation. The authors used high-through put technologies to express a large number of proteins…
  • New studies find a rise in drug-resistant urinary tract infections in pets, raising concerns that companion animals and their close contact with humans can provide opportunities for interspecies transmission of resistant bacteria, which can contribute to the spread of potential superbugs. Cátia Marques and Adriana Belas presented this study at the joint meeting of the American Society for Microbiology 2016 and the Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy .…
