    The mitis group of streptococci comprises species that are common colonizers of the naso-oral-pharyngeal tract of humans. Streptococcus pneumoniae and Streptococcus mitis are close relatives and share ~60–80% of orthologous ...
  • Junges, Roger; Salvadori, Gabriela; Chen, Tsute; Morrison, Donald A.; Petersen, Fernanda Cristina (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    Natural transformation is regarded as an important mechanism in bacteria that allows for adaptation to different environmental stressors by ensuring genome plasticity. Since the discovery of this phenomenon in Streptococcus ...
  • Salvadori, Gabriela; Junges, Roger; Khan, Rabia; Åmdal, Heidi Aarø; Morrison, Donald A.; Petersen, Fernanda Cristina (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / AcceptedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    The discovery that Streptococcus pneumoniae uses a competence-stimulating peptide (CSP) to induce competence for natural transformation, and that other species of the mitis and the anginosus streptococcal groups use a ...

    Objective: Streptococcus mitis is a predominant oral colonizer, but difficulties in genetic manipulation of this species have hampered our understanding of the mechanisms it uses for colonization of oral surfaces. The aim ...
  • Junges, Roger; Salvadori, Gabriela; Sudhanshu, Shekhar; Åmdal, Heidi Aarø; Periselneris, Jimstan; Chen, Tsute; Brown, Jeremy S.; Petersen, Fernanda Cristina (Journal article / Tidsskriftartikkel / PublishedVersion; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    Despite vaccines, Streptococcus pneumoniae kills more than a million people yearly. Thus, understanding how pneumococci transition from commensals to pathogens is particularly relevant. Quorum sensing regulates collective ...
