The Universal Stress Protein (USP) superfamily represents a growing set of small cytoplasmic proteins whose expression is affected by a wide variety of internal or external environmental stresses.

A biofilm is an assemblage of microbial cells that is irreversibly associated (not removed by gentle rinsing) with a surface and enclosed in a matrix of primarily polysaccharide material. Noncellular materials such as mineral crystals, corrosion particles, clay or silt particles, or blood components, depending on the environment in which the biofilm has developed, may also be found in the biofilm matrix.
