  • CLINICAL
  • Laboratory culturing and Gram staining procedures are considered too unspecific to identify C. difficile in clinical situations due to its morphological similarity to other Clostridia species that make up the normal microflora of the colon. (ppdictionary.com)
  • distal
  • The distal adhesin domains of TIE proteins contain reactive thioesters and can be likened to "chemical harpoons", covalently anchoring bacteria to their targets, such as host cell surface proteins. (cam.ac.uk)
  • The distal colon functions as a bioreactor and harbors an enormous amount of bacteria in a mutualistic relationship with the host. (pnas.org)
  • Zg16 −/− mice have a distal colon mucus layer with normal thickness, but with bacteria closer to the epithelium. (pnas.org)
  • Using distal colon explants mounted in a horizontal perfusion chamber we demonstrated that treatment of bacteria with recombinant ZG16 hindered bacterial penetration into the mucus. (pnas.org)
  • broad
  • Researchers at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience (IMB) at The University of Queensland (UQ) have initiated a research program to resurrect the antibiotic fruilimicin B that displays broad spectrum activity against a variety of gram positive bacteria. (uniquest.com.au)
  • flora
  • It is used for swabs which are likely to have a mixed Gram positive and Gram negative flora, such as ears, burns, ulcers, and for the sputa of patients with cystic fibrosis. (bmj.com)
  • Expression
  • The expression level of a gene is a function of both its rate of transcription and RNA decay, and the influence of mRNA decay rates on gene expression in genome-wide studies of Gram-positive bacteria is under-investigated. (biomedcentral.com)
  • showed the ability
  • Because this bacterium also showed the ability to degrade most of the other common amino acids, it can serve as a useful model for the control of amino acid catabolism in the high G + C Actinobacteria . (springer.com)
  • nodes
  • In the absence of Zg16, more bacteria penetrate the epithelium, enter the regional lymph nodes and spleen, trigger the immune system, and cause abdominal fat pad mass increase. (pnas.org)
  • among
  • The hemEHY operon required for protoheme IX synthesis from uroporphyrinogen III (UroIII) is conserved among low G+C Gram-positive bacteria. (lu.se)
  • Among the active plants, 32.6% were active against G(-), 62% against G(+), and 47.3% against both G(-) and G(+) bacteria. (isharonline.org)
