  • bacteria
  • The second component of Quorum sensing in P. aeruginosa bacteria is called the "rhl system", named due to its ability to control the gene expression which ultimately produces rhamnolipid. (news-medical.net)
  • These bacteria already produce the endotoxins required to initiate disease, however, the coordinated expression of these virulence genes by whole, densely-packed populations allow for P. aeruginosa populations to effectively overcome the host defences, and cause infection at a more efficient rate.

  • Pseudomonas Aeruginosa is an environmental bacteria that is in the top 3 leading causes of opportunistic infections. (smore.com)
  • P. aeruginosa growth within the human body can be asymptomatic until the bacteria form a biofilm, which overwhelms the immune system. (wikipedia.org)
  • anaerobic
  • Due to its capability to synthesize arginine, P. aeruginosa can also proliferate in anaerobic conditions. (kenyon.edu)
  • Adaptation to microaerobic or anaerobic environments is essential for certain lifestyles of P. aeruginosa, for example, during lung infection in cystic fibrosis and primary ciliary dyskinesia, where thick layers of lung mucus and alginate surrounding mucoid bacterial cells can limit the diffusion of oxygen. (wikipedia.org)
  • cystic fibrosis
  • Full results from the phase III trials and future studies are likely to expand the use of ceftazidime/avibactam to include hospitalized adults with nosocomial and ventilator-associated pneumonia, hospitalized pediatric patients aged 3 months to 18 years with complicated intra-abdominal infections, and patients with cystic fibrosis who have resistant respiratory P aeruginosa infections.

  • metabolism
  • In the current project, "Control of Na+ and H+ transport in bacterial adaptation," researchers will seek to understand how transport proteins that move hydrogen and sodium cations through the cell membrane allow Pseudomonas to adjust its metabolism to different environmental conditions.

  • green
  • In 1882, the first scientific study on P. aeruginosa , entitled "On the blue and green coloration of bandages," was published by a pharmacist named Carle Gessard. (kenyon.edu)
  • important
  • Furthermore, P.aeruginosa is a very important soil bacterium that is capable of breaking down polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and making rhamnolipids, quinolones, hydrogen cyanide, phenazines, and lectins (5). (kenyon.edu)
