Effects of surfactant mixtures, including Corexit 9527, on bacterial oxidation of acetate and alkanes in crude oil. (1/123)

Mixtures of nonionic and anionic surfactants, including Corexit 9527, were tested to determine their effects on bacterial oxidation of acetate and alkanes in crude oil by cells pregrown on these substrates. Corexit 9527 inhibited oxidation of the alkanes in crude oil by Acinetobacter calcoaceticus ATCC 31012, while Span 80, a Corexit 9527 constituent, markedly increased the oil oxidation rate. Another Corexit 9527 constituent, the negatively charged dioctyl sulfosuccinate (AOT), strongly reduced the oxidation rate. The combination of Span 80 and AOT increased the rate, but not as much as Span 80 alone increased it, which tentatively explained the negative effect of Corexit 9527. The results of acetate uptake and oxidation experiments indicated that the nonionic surfactants interacted with the acetate uptake system while the anionic surfactant interacted with the oxidation system of the bacteria. The overall effect of Corexit 9527 on alkane oxidation by A. calcoaceticus ATCC 31012 thus seems to be the sum of the independent effects of the individual surfactants in the surfactant mixture. When Rhodococcus sp. strain 094 was used, the alkane oxidation rate decreased to almost zero in the presence of a mixture of Tergitol 15-S-7 and AOT even though the Tergitol 15-S-7 surfactant increased the alkane oxidation rate and AOT did not affect it. This indicated that there was synergism between the two surfactants rather than an additive effect like that observed for A. calcoaceticus ATCC 31012.  (+info)

Genotypic and phenotypic similarity of multiresistant Acinetobacter baumannii isolates in the Czech Republic. (2/123)

The diversity of 103 clinical isolates of the Acinetobacter calcoaceticus-Acinetobacter baumannii complex obtained between 1991 and 1997 from 17 Czech hospitals was studied by ribotyping, biotyping, plasmid profiling and antibiotic susceptibility testing. According to the EcoRI ribotypes, all but one of these isolates were identified to the DNA group level: 77 isolates were allocated to DNA group 2 (A. baumannii), 14 to DNA group 3, 10 to DNA group 13 sensu Tjernberg and Ursing and one to DNA group 1 (A. calcoaceticus). In total, 50 different EcoRI ribotypes and 10 biotypes were observed. Plasmids were found in 92% of the isolates and a high variability in plasmid profiles was found in isolates of the same DNA group. The combination of typing profiles allowed two predominant groups (termed A and B) to be distinguished among the A. baumannii isolates (37 and eight isolates, respectively) that shared a specific ribotype and were highly similar in other properties. These two groups comprised both sporadic and outbreak isolates and were found in most localities. Group A and B isolates were markedly more resistant to antibiotics than most of the remaining isolates, thus representing 85% of all multiresistant isolates. The features of groups A and B corresponded to those of two epidemic clones identified recently among hospital strains in north-western Europe.  (+info)

Functional evaluation of the genes involved in malonate decarboxylation by Acinetobacter calcoaceticus. (3/123)

The genomic locus containing the potential repressor gene mdcY (inactivated by a putative IS3 element) and the mdcLMACDEGBH genes from Acinetobacter calcoaceticus was cloned and sequenced. In order to evaluate the biochemical function of the protein components, the genes were expressed independently and their activities predicted by database analysis. The mdcA gene product, the alpha subunit, was found to be malonate/acetyl-CoA transferase and the mdcD gene product, the beta subunit, was found to be malonyl-CoA decarboxylase. The mdcE gene product, the gamma subunit, may play a role in subunit interaction to form a stable complex or as a codecarboxylase. The mdcC gene product, the delta subunit, was an acyl-carrier protein, which has a unique CoA-like prosthetic group. Various combinations of malonate decarboxylase subunits allowed us to estimate their contribution to malonyl-CoA decarboxylase activity. The prosthetic group was identified as carboxymethylated 2'-(5"-phosphoribosyl)-3'-dephospho-CoA by mass spectrometry. The mdcH gene product was determined to have malonyl-CoA/dephospho-CoA acyltransferase activity. Using database analysis mdcLM, mdcG, mdcB and mdcI were estimated to be the genes for a malonate transporter, a holo-acyl carrier synthase, protein for the formation of precursor of the prosthetic group and a regulatory protein, respectively. From the data shown above we propose a metabolic pathway for malonate in A. calcoaceticus.  (+info)

Autoantibodies to brain components and antibodies to Acinetobacter calcoaceticus are present in bovine spongiform encephalopathy. (4/123)

Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) is a neurological disorder, predominantly of British cattle, which belongs to the group of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies together with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD), kuru, and scrapie. Autoantibodies to brain neurofilaments have been previously described in patients with CJD and kuru and in sheep affected by scrapie. Spongiform-like changes have also been observed in chronic experimental allergic encephalomyelitis, at least in rabbits and guinea pigs, and in these conditions autoantibodies to myelin occur. We report here that animals with BSE have elevated levels of immunoglobulin A autoantibodies to brain components, i.e., neurofilaments (P < 0.001) and myelin (P < 0.001), as well as to Acinetobacter calcoaceticus (P < 0.001), saprophytic microbes found in soil which have sequences cross-reacting with bovine neurofilaments and myelin, but there were no antibody elevations against Agrobacterium tumefaciens or Escherichia coli. The relevance of such mucosal autoantibodies or antibacterial antibodies to the pathology of BSE and its possible link to prions requires further evaluation.  (+info)

3,4-Dihydrocoumarin hydrolase with haloperoxidase activity from Acinetobacter calcoaceticus F46. (5/123)

A novel lactonohydrolase, an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of 3,4-dihydrocoumarin, was purified 375-fold to apparent homogeneity, with a 22.7% overall recovery, from Acinetobacter calcoaceticus F46, which was isolated as a fluorene-assimilating micro-organism. The molecular mass of the native enzyme, as estimated by high-performance gel-permeation chromatography, is 56 kDa, and the subunit molecular mass is 30 kDa. The enzyme specifically hydrolyzes 3,4-dihydrocoumarin, and the Km and Vmax for 3,4-dihydrocoumarin are 0.806 mM and 4760 U.mg-1, respectively. The N-terminal and internal amino acid sequences of the enzyme show high similarity to those of bacterial non-heme haloperoxidases. The enzyme exhibits brominating activity with monochlorodimedon in the presence of H2O2 and 3, 4-dihydrocoumarin or an organic acid, such as acetate and n-butyrate.  (+info)

ComP, a pilin-like protein essential for natural competence in Acinetobacter sp. Strain BD413: regulation, modification, and cellular localization. (6/123)

We recently identified a pilin-like competence factor, ComP, which is essential for natural transformation of the gram-negative soil bacterium Acinetobacter sp. strain BD413. Here we demonstrate that transcription and synthesis of the pilin-like competence factor ComP are maximal in the late stationary growth phase, whereas competence is induced immediately after inoculation of a stationary-phase culture into fresh medium. Western blot analyses revealed three forms of ComP, one with an apparent molecular mass of 15 kDa, which correlates with the molecular mass deduced from the DNA sequence, one 20-kDa form, which was found to be glycosylated, and one 23-kDa form. The glycosylation of ComP was not required for its function in DNA binding and uptake. The 20-kDa form was present in the cytoplasmic membrane, the periplasm, and the outer membrane, whereas the 23-kDa form was located in the outer membrane and might be due to a further modification. Immunological data suggest that ComP is not a subunit of the pilus structures. Possible functions of ComP in the DNA transformation machinery of Acinetobacter sp. strain BD413 are discussed.  (+info)

The malonate decarboxylase operon of Acinetobacter calcoaceticus KCCM 40902 is regulated by malonate and the transcriptional repressor MdcY. (7/123)

A regulatory gene-like open reading frame oriented oppositely to mdcL, coined mdcY, was found upstream from the structural genes of the mdcLMACDEGBH operon in Acinetobacter calcoaceticus KCCM 40902. To elucidate the function of this gene, mdcY was expressed in Escherichia coli, and the MdcY protein was purified to homogeneity. Its DNA binding activity and binding site were examined by gel retardation and footprinting assays in vitro and by site-directed mutagenesis of the binding sites in vivo. The regulator bound target DNA regardless of the presence of malonate, and the binding site was found centered at -65 relative to the mdcL transcriptional start site and contains a 12-bp palindromic structure (5'-ATTGTA/TACAAT-3'). Using a promoter fusion to the reporter gene luc, we found that the promoter P(mdcY) is negatively regulated by MdcY independent of malonate. However, the promoter P(mdcL) recovered its activity in the presence of malonate. When mdcY was introduced into A. calcoaceticus KCCM 40902 in which the gene is inactivated by an IS3 family element, malonate decarboxylase was significantly repressed in cultures growing in acetate, succinate, or Luria-Bertani medium. However, in cells growing in malonate, malonate decarboxylase was induced, indicating that MdcY is a transcriptional repressor and that malonate or a product resulting from malonate metabolism should be the intracellular inducer of the mdc operon.  (+info)

Ca(2+) stabilizes the semiquinone radical of pyrroloquinoline quinone. (8/123)

Spectroelectrochemical studies were performed on the interaction between Ca(2+) and pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) in soluble glucose dehydrogenase (sGDH) and in the free state by applying a mediated continuous-flow column electrolytic spectroelectrochemical technique. The enzyme forms used were holo-sGDH (the holo-form of sGDH from Acinetobacter calcoaceticus) and an incompletely reconstituted form of this, holo-X, in which the PQQ-activating Ca(2+) is lacking. The spectroelectrochemical and ESR data clearly demonstrated the generation of the semiquinone radical of PQQ in holo-sGDH and in the free state in the presence of Ca(2+). In contrast, in the absence of Ca(2+) no semiquinone was observed, either for PQQ in the free state (at pH 7.0) or in the enzyme (holo-X). Incorporation of Ca(2+) into the active site of holo-X, yielding holo-sGDH, caused not only stabilization of the semiquinone form of PQQ but also a negative shift (of 26.5 mV) of the two-electron redox potential, indicating that the effect of Ca(2+) is stronger on the oxidized than on the reduced PQQ. Combining these data with the observations on the kinetic and chemical mechanisms, it was concluded that the strong stimulating effect of Ca(2+) on the activity of sGDH can be attributed to facilitation of certain kinetic steps, and not to improvement of the thermodynamics of substrate oxidation. The consequences of this conclusion are discussed for the oxidative as well as for the reductive part of the reaction of sGDH.  (+info)

BioAssay record AID 278066 submitted by ChEMBL: Antimicrobial activity against Acinetobacter baumannii-calcoaceticus complex isolated from nondeployed military patient.
Acinetobacter calcoaceticus is a bacterial species of the genus Acinetobacter. It is a nonmotile, gram negative coccobacillus. It grows under aerobic conditions, is catalase positive and oxidase negative. It is part of the normal human intestinal flora. Together with A. baumannii, it is referred to as the A. calcoaceticus-A. baumannii complex, which is relatively simple to identify based on the beforementioned phenotypic characteristics. To identify other Acinetobacter species genotyping is required. A. calcoaceticus is a soil bacterium. It has been shown to be prevalent in the tiger mosquito Aedes albopictus microflora. Phloroglucinol carboxylic acid is a degradation product excreted by A. calcoaceticus grown on (+)-catechin as the sole source of carbon. A. calcoaceticus can be pathogenic and cause an opportunistic infection in patients with multiple underlying diseases.

Acinetobacter calcoaceticus BD413 accumulates wax esters and triacylglycerol under conditions of mineral nutrient limitation. Nitrosoguanidine-induced mutants of strain BD413 were isolated that failed to accumulate wax esters under nitrogen-limited growth conditions. One of the mutants, Wow15 (without wax), accumulated wax when grown in the presence of cis-11-hexadecenal and hexadecanol but not hexadecane or hexadecanoic acid. This suggested that the mutation may have inactivated a gene encoding either an acyl-acyl carrier protein or acyl-coenzyme A (CoA) reductase. The Wow15 mutant was complemented with a cosmid genomic library prepared from wild-type A. calcoaceticus BD413. The complementary region was localized to a single gene (acr1) encoding a protein of 32,468 Da that is 44% identical over a region of 264 amino acids to a product of unknown function encoded by an open reading frame associated with mycolic acid synthesis in Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Ra. Extracts of Escherichia coli ...

Ochratoxin A (OTA) is a mycotoxin with a main nephrotoxic activity contaminating several foodstuffs. In the present report, five soil samples collected from OTA-contaminated vineyards were screened to isolate microorganisms able to biodegrade OTA. When cultivated in OTA-supplemented medium, OTA was converted in OTα by 225 bacterial isolates. To reveal clonal relationships between isolates, molecular typing by using an automated rep-PCR system was carried out, thus showing the presence of 27 different strains (rep-PCR profiles). The 16S-rRNA gene sequence analysis of an isolate representative of each rep-PCR profiles indicated that they belonged to five bacterial genera, namely Pseudomonas, Leclercia, Pantoea, Enterobacter, and Acinetobacter. However, further evaluation of OTA-degrading activity by the 27 strains revealed that only Acinetobacter calcoaceticus strain 396.1 and Acinetobacter sp. strain neg1, consistently conserved the above property; their further characterization showed that they were

Summary Different PCR-based DNA fingerprinting techniques were evaluated for typing 26 clinical isolates belonging to the Acinetobacter calcoaceticus-A. baumannii complex. Seven isolates belonged to a previously defined outbreak while 19 isolates were unrelated epidemiologically. The PCR-based DNA fingerprinting techniques used were: (i) repetitive extragenic palindromic (REP) PCR; (ii) enterobacterial repetitive intergenic consensus (ERIC) PCR; (iii) randomly amplified polymorphic DNA with M13 forward primer; (iv) restriction analysis of the amplified 16S rRNA gene (ARDRA-16S); and (v) restriction analysis of an amplified region containing the 16S-23S rRNA spacer region and part of the 23S rRNA gene (ARDRA 23S + spacer). The discrimination index for the PCR-based DNA fingerprinting techniques was: 0.99 for REP; 0.94 for ERIC; 0.87 for M13; 0.60 for ARDRA-16S digested with Hpa II and |0.50 for ARDRA 23S + spacer. It was concluded that REP-PCR possessed high discriminatory power and reproducibility in

Accurate and robust monitoring of product and reactants in a complex bioconversion stream is essential for the development of effective process control strategies. To monitor a microbially-catalysed Baeyer-Villiger bioconversion of a cyclic ketone to an optically pure lactone, a near infrared (NIR) spectroscopic method has been developed. The reaction, catalysed by cyclohexanone monooxygenase from Acinetobacter calcoaceticus (expressed in Escherichia coli) is characterised by substrate (ketone) and product (lactone) inhibition at relatively low concentrations. Quantitative multivariate calibration of a NIR spectrophotometer for ketone and lactone resulted in a standard error of prediction (SEP) at-line of 0.088 and 0.110 g/l-1 and on-line of 0.130 and 0.180 g/l-1 , respectively. The directed modification of quantitative models, by the inclusion of spiked process samples improved the SEP for lactone prediction where bioprocess development meant existing NIR models were not relevant. The ...

The demand for new methods through which important enantiopure compounds can be produced is increasing within the chemical industry. In this regard, one group of interesting compounds are enantiopure carboxylic acids as traditional methods towards producing these compounds that rely on a process known as enantioselective decarboxylative protonation (EDP) are often insufficient due to a combination of factors including low yields, low enantioselectivities, the need for environmentally deleterious reaction conditions and high costs. Due to the shortcomings of these synthetic techniques, the application of biological systems is an alternative method that has come to the forefront of current research, which is because biological systems often boast a number of advantages over traditional chemical methods. Described within this thesis is one such biological method towards the production of enantiopure carboxylic acid compounds via EDP, a method that utilises the enzyme aryl malonate decarboxylase ...
In a 3-month period, three men who had worked for 5 to 19 years as welders or grinders of steel castings in a foundry acquired pneumonia caused by Acinetobacter calcoaceticus variety anitratus serotype 7J. Two of the men died, and postmortem examination showed mixed-dust pneumoconiosis with iron particles in the lungs. A. calcoaceticus variety anitratus serotype 7J was isolated from the air in the foundry but the source was not found. The prevalence of antibody titers of 64 or greater to the 7J strain was significantly higher among foundry workers (15%) than among community controls (2%) (p , 0.01). Sampling showed that the concentrations of total and metallic particles (especially iron) and of free silica in air inhaled by welders and grinders at the foundry frequently exceeded acceptable levels. These findings suggest that chronic exposure to such particles may increase susceptibility to infection by this organism, which rarely affects healthy people. ...

Five methods for assaying bacterial surface hydrophobicity, namely, bacterial adherence to hydrocarbons, salt aggregation, hydrophobic interaction chromatography, adhesion to polystyrene and latex particle agglutination were used to compare the hydrophobic surface properties of Escherichia coli, Acinetobacter calcoaceticus, Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus mitis. Two strains of A. calcoaceticus, including RAG-1, gave strong positive results by all five methods. S. mitis gave weak or negative results by all methods. The results for the other bacteria varied with the method. We conclude that reliance on one method for such tests is inadequate ...

The study of biofilm function, structure and microbial interactions might help to improve our understanding of biofilm wastewater treatment processes. However, few reports specifically address the influence of interactions within multispecies biofilms on microbial activity and biofilm composition. Thus, the relationship between biofilm formation, denitrification activity, phosphorus removal and the composition of extracellular polymeric substances (EPS), exopolysaccharides and the bacterial community was investigated using biofilms of denitrifying and phosphorus removing strains Comamonas denitrificans 110, Brachymonas denitrificans B79, Aeromonas hydrophila L6 and Acinetobacter calcoaceticus ATCC23055. Denitrification activity within the biofilms generally increased with the amount of biofilm while phosphorus removal depended on bacterial growth rate. Synergistic effects of co-growth on denitrification (B. denitrificans B79 and A. hydrophila L6) and phosphorus removal (C. denitrificans 110 with ...
Ver más] As a part of a nationwide study in Spain, 15 clinical isolates of Acinetobacter genomic species 3 (AG3) were analyzed. The main objective of the study was to characterize the ampC genes from these isolates and to determine their involvement in B-lactam resistance in AG3. The 15 AG3 isolates showed different profiles of resistance to ampicillin (range of MICs, 12 to ,256 μg/ml). Nucleotide sequencing of the 15 ampC genes yielded 12 new AmpC enzymes (ADC-12 to ADC-23). The 12 AG3 enzymes showed 93.7 to 96.1% amino acid identity with respect to the AmpC enzyme from Acinetobacter baumannii (ADC-1 enzyme). Eight out of fifteen ampC genes were expressed in Escherichia coli cells under the control of a common promoter, and with the exception of one isolate (isolate 65, which showed lower B-lactam MICs), significant differences in overall B-lactam MICs for E. coli cells expressing AG3 ampC genes were not revealed. No significant differences in ampC gene expression in AG3 clinical isolates ...
Soluble glucose dehydrogenase is a homodimeric enzyme found in various bacteria such as Acinetobacter calcoaceticus , requiring Ca2+ and pyrroloquinolinequinone (PQQ) cofactors for full enzymatic activity. sGDH catalyses the oxidation of glucose and other aldose sugars. The mechanistic details have yet to be disclosed. Towards that goal, a specific series of 3 isomeric analogs (2-4) of PQQ are being synthesized from methoxyaniline derivatives in the laboratory. The synthesis includes the reaction of a diazonium salt with ethyl-2-methyacetoacetate to yield the corresponding hydrazones of ethyl pyruvate. Each hydrazone underwent acid catalyzed Fischer indole synthesis followed by reduction of the nitro group using H2/Pd/C in to the corresponding aminoindole. Michael addition with dimethyl trans 2-ketoglutaconate was performed to form the third pyridine ring, which was further oxidized into triesters. Hydrolysis of the oxidation product yields the 3 isomeric analogs of PQQ. These isomers differ in the

The gut microbiota regulates T cell functions throughout the body. We hypothesized that intestinal bacteria impact the pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis (MS), an autoimmune disorder of the CNS and thus analyzed the microbiomes of 71 MS patients not undergoing treatment and 71 healthy controls. Although no major shifts in microbial community structure were found, we identified specific bacterial taxa that were significantly associated with MS. Akkermansia muciniphila and Acinetobacter calcoaceticus, both increased in MS patients, induced proinflammatory responses in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells and in monocolonized mice. In contrast, Parabacteroides distasonis, which was reduced in MS patients, stimulated antiinflammatory IL-10-expressing human CD4+CD25+ T cells and IL-10+FoxP3+ Tregs in mice. Finally, microbiota transplants from MS patients into germ-free mice resulted in more severe symptoms of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis and reduced proportions of IL-10+ Tregs ...
Acinetobacter, belonging to γ-proteobacteria, are gram-negative strictly aerobic, non-motile, non-fermentative and oxidase-negative bacteria. The classification of the genus Acinetobacter contains over 50 species [1]. Acinetobacter spp. were considered for decades as saprophytic environmental microorganisms. However, recently, they have increasingly been implicated in various types of infections, mainly nosocomial infections in fragilized patients in intensive care units, hence adding the hospital to the list of their favorite environments. A major trait of their pathogenicity is their high and broad array of antibiotic resistance. The often multi-drug resistance (MDR) Acinetobacter baumannii is the major species in the genus involved in recent nosocomial infections. In contrast to A. baumannii that is mainly found in the hospital environment, other species of the Acinetobacter genus are isolated from the soil, water, and animals [2]. Many environmental Acinetobacter spp. are able to metabolize ...

Columbus, OH - November 2016. The bacteria Acinetobacter baumannii is a widely-reported cause of healthcare-associated infections, particularly in adult intensive care units in developing countries. But a retrospective study of isolated cases at Nationwide Childrens Hospital found that Acinetobacter pittii recently emerged as the more common cause of infection among patients there.. At a time when hospitals are trying to eliminate all possible harm, the discovery drives home the importance of being vigilant and of taking advantage of the latest genotyping techniques, the researchers say.. As we try to characterize hospital acquired infections, its important to do good speciation of the bacteria, says Benjamin Kopp, MD, a pulmonologist and principal investigator in the Center for Microbial Pathogenesis at The Research Institute at Nationwide Childrens, and senior author of the study. The Acinetobacter complex contains many different species that can act differently, so you cant really ...

Acinetobacter spp. are a diverse group of Gram-negative bacteria frequently implicated in nosocomial infections. Genotypic methods have been instrumental in studying Acinetobacter, but few offer high resolution, rapid turnaround time, technical ease and high inter-laboratory reproducibility, which has hampered understanding of disease incidence, transmission patterns and diversity within this genus. Here, we further evaluated multilocus PCR electrospray ionization/ mass spectrometry (PCR/ESI-MS), a method that is simple and robust, and provides both species characterization and strain-level resolution of Acinetobacter spp. on a single platform. We examined 125 Acinetobacter isolates from 21 hospitals, laboratories and medical centres spanning four counties in Arizona, USA, using PCR/ESI-MS. We compared PCR/ESI-MS with an in-house amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) genotyping scheme. PCR/ESI-MS demonstrated that Acinetobacter spp. from Arizonan hospitals had similar species and strain

Acinetobacter is a genus of opportunistic pathogens in the proteobacteria group, species of which are distributed in widespread, diverse habitats. It has garnered media attention because of an outbreak among soldiers in Iraq who contracted the species Acinetobacter baumannii. While it was initially thought that the bacteria had come from the Iraqi soil, it turns out that the bacteria were actually contracted in the militarys evacuation chain. At least 280 people, mostly soldiers returning from the battlefield, were infected with the disease, and at least 5 (non-active-duty soldiers) died. These bacteria can often be found as the cause of pneumonia in hospitalized patients, especially those dependent on ventilators in Intensive Care Units. The bacteria are most often contracted through the exposure of open wounds to contaminated soil. This makes it a problem during warfare (it was the second-leading cause of infection among troops during the Vietnam conflict) because of the high number of ...

Acinetobacter baumannii bacteria, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). This bacterium has developed resistance to a number of antibiotics and is increasingly seen in opportunistic infections in hospitals. It typically infects the lungs, leading to a form of pneumonia. It can develop resistance to antibiotics even as they are being used to treat an infection. Because of this, and because it is generally found in weakened patients, the mortality rate for infections with A. baumannii is high. In healthy individuals, however, it is a normal part of the skin flora. Magnification: x11,000 when printed 10 centimetres wide. - Stock Image B220/1513

Previous research has found that multiple sclerosis (MS) patients may have a specific microbial signature in their gut microbiota that could impact disease pathogenesis. However, it is not known to what extent structural and functional changes in the gut microbiota are primary contributors to MS pathogenesis and which underlying mechanisms are involved.. A new study, led by Dr. Sergio Baranzini from the Department of Neurology at the University of California San Francisco (USA), has found that specific gut bacteria from multiple sclerosis patients regulate immune responses and exacerbate MS-like symptoms in mice.. The researchers used 16S ribosomal ribonucleic acid (rRNA) gene sequencing of stool samples from 71 untreated relapsing-remitting MS patients and 71 healthy controls.. Although they did not find shifts in the gut microbiota structure, specific bacterial taxa were significantly associated with MS. Both Akkermansia muciniphila and Acinetobacter calcoaceticus were increased in MS ...

Description: C-FLO is a special formulation of beneficial microorganisms that feed on organic sediment (muck) at the bottom of ponds and lakes. These organisms are found in the woods feeding on dead leaves, bark, weeds and other dead matter. When you walk through the woods, you step on as many as 300,000,000 of these tiny organisms with every step. C-FLO is comprised of healthful organisms that are natural food for aquatic insects. C-FLO multiplies as it feeds on organic sediment, and insects grow and multiply as they feed on C-FLO. Fish then feed on the insects and grow rapidly.. What C-FLO does: C-FLO feeds on bottom organic muck, ooze, and peat, digesting and converting it to carbon dioxide and water. As C-FLO feeds on bottom muck, the lake will deepen, creating a better environment for fish, and less opportunity for weeds to grow. Cattails and lilies will gradually disappear. This process replaces dredging the organic material at a tiny fraction of the cost. C-FLO is harmless to fish, ...
Acinetobacter baumannii is a pleomorphic aerobic gram-negative bacillus (similar in appearance to Haemophilus influenzae on Gram stain) commonly isolated from the hospital environment and hospitalized patients. A baumannii is a water organism and preferentially colonizes aquatic environments.
Acinetobacter baumannii remains an important and difficult-to-treat pathogen whose resistance patterns result in significant challenges for the clinician. Despite the prevalence and interest in A. baumannii infections, there is relatively limited wellcontrolled scientific data to help the clinician select optimal empirical and subsequent targeted therapy for a variety of infections. We will review the currently available antimicrobial agents and discuss the clinical data supporting the use of the various agents.. ...

War wound infection and osteomyelitis caused by multidrug-resistant (MDR) Acinetobacter species have been prevalent during the 2003-2005 military operations in Iraq. Twenty-three soldiers wounded in Iraq and subsequently admitted to our facility from March 2003 to May 2004 had wound cultures positive for Acinetobacter calcoaceticus-baumannii complex. Eighteen had osteomyelitis, 2 burn infection, and 3 deep wound infection. Primary therapy for these infections was directed antimicrobial agents for an average of 6 weeks. All soldiers initially improved, regardless of the specific type of therapy. Patients were followed up to 23 months after completing therapy, and none had recurrent infection with Acinetobacter species. Despite the drug resistance that infecting organisms demonstrated in this series, a regimen of carefully selected extended antimicrobial-drug therapy appears effective for osteomyelitis caused by MDR Acinetobacter spp.
Author Summary Genetic elements, such as transposons and integrons, frequently carry antimicrobial resistance determinants and can be found widely disseminated among pathogenic bacteria. Their distribution pattern suggests dissemination through horizontal gene transfer. The role of natural transformation in horizontal transfer of genetic elements other than those that are self-replicative (plasmids) has remained largely unexplored. We have tested if natural transformation can facilitate transfer of transposons and class 1 integrons between bacterial species. We here provide experimental evidence showing that natural transformation can be a general mechanism for dissemination of genetic elements that by themselves do not encode interspecies transfer functions (e.g. transposons, insertion sequences). We demonstrate that antibiotic resistance determinants present in such genetic elements can spread by natural transformation between species of clinical interest. We show by quantitative data that
Multi-drug resistant Acinetobacter baumannii bacteria inside biofilm, computer illustration. A. baumannii is a Gram-negative, oxidase negative, aerobic, coccobacillus. It has always been naturally resistant to multiple antibiotics. It can be especially resistant to penicillin and chloramphenicol. It causes various nosocomial infections, including, skin and wound infections, pneumonia, meningitis, septicaemia, urinary tract infection and endocarditis. It is commonly found in soil, water, sewage, and normal skin and gastrointestinal tract flora. It is the most frequently encountered species in the clinical laboratory. Species found in soil can colonize root nodule systems and oxidize the hydrogen produced by nitrogen fixing bacteria. The illustration shows morphology of Acinetobacter such as short rods and sometimes long filamentous cells. - Stock Image F018/1264
Bacterial infections due to Acinetobacter species are typically encountered in health care settings and can be particularly difficult to treat due to the propensity of the organism to incorporate multiple antibiotic resistance mechanisms. Hospital outbreaks of multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter infections have been reported. A wide range of infections are possible with this organism, including bloodstream infections, pneumonia (occasionally even community-acquired pneumonia), urinary tract infections, and wound infections (wound infection in soldiers after traumatic injury have been reported ...

But while reading about Acinetobacter I was reminded about competence in Thermus thermophilus. In lab culture these cells take up DNA all the time (less in stationary phase), giving transformation frequencies of about 1% for most genes. This might give a growth advantage large enough to be detected in a single-step growth experiment. Mutants carrying knockouts of DNA-uptake genes are readily available and well characterized. I think T. thermophiluss nutritional requirements are quite simple, but growing it is likely to be complicated because its a hyperthermophile - lab cultures are usually grown at 60-70°C! We do have a spare shaking waterbath that could be set this high, but for competence assays and cell counts wed want to grow cells on solid medium, and I dont even know if one can use agar at this temperature ...
