Iron Metabolism in Pathogenic Bacteria
The ability of pathogens to obtain iron from transferrins, ferritin, hemoglobin, and other iron-containing proteins of their host is central to whether they live or die. To combat invading bacteria, animals go into an iron-withholding mode and also use a protein (Nramp1) to generate reactive oxygen species in an attempt to kill the pathogens. Some invading bacteria respond by producing specific iron chelators—siderophores—that remove the iron from the host sources. Other bacteria rely on direct contact with host iron proteins, either abstracting the iron at their surface or, as with heme, taking it up into the cytoplasm. 
Biosensors for detection of pathogenic bacteria
This paper presents an overview of different physicochemical instrumental techniques for direct and indirect identification of bacteria such as: infrared and fluorescence spectroscopy, flow cytometry, chromatography and chemiluminescence techniques as a basis for biosensor construction. 
Cooperation and competition in pathogenic bacteria
Explaining altruistic cooperation is one of the greatest challenges for evolutionary biology1,2,3. One solution to this problem is if costly cooperative behaviours are directed towards relatives4,5.
Microbial Status and Multidrug Resistance Pattern of Pathogenic Bacteria Isolated from Street Food in Dhaka City, Bangladesh
Aims: This study aims to evaluate the microbiological safety in street foods available in Dhaka city, Bangladesh.
Study Design: Seven categories of street foods were collected aseptically in triplicates from 10 locations of the most populous areas of Dhaka city, transported to the microbiology laboratory of Center of Excellence, Primeasia University, Dhaka. The samples were analyzed for microbiological quality. 
Antimicrobial Activity of Pleurotus squarrosulus on Clinical Pathogenic Bacteria and Fungi
Aim: To evaluate the antimicrobial activities of Pleurotus squarrosulus mushroom extracts on bacterial and fungal isolates.
Study Design: Pleurotus squarrosulus was obtained from different sources in Umuahia North Local Government, Abia state, Nigeria and identified in the Department of botany, University of Nigeria, Nsukka.
