One of the three domains of life (the others being Eukarya and ARCHAEA), also called Eubacteria. They are unicellular prokaryotic microorganisms which generally possess rigid cell walls, multiply by cell division, and exhibit three principal forms: round or coccal, rodlike or bacillary, and spiral or spirochetal. Bacteria can be classified by their response to OXYGEN: aerobic, anaerobic, or facultatively anaerobic; by the mode by which they obtain their energy: chemotrophy (via chemical reaction) or PHOTOTROPHY (via light reaction); for chemotrophs by their source of chemical energy: CHEMOLITHOTROPHY (from inorganic compounds) or chemoorganotrophy (from organic compounds); and by their source for CARBON; NITROGEN; etc.; HETEROTROPHY (from organic sources) or AUTOTROPHY (from CARBON DIOXIDE). They can also be classified by whether or not they stain (based on the structure of their CELL WALLS) with CRYSTAL VIOLET dye: gram-negative or gram-positive.

The Jun kinase 2 isoform is preferentially required for epidermal growth factor-induced transformation of human A549 lung carcinoma cells. (1/1701)

We have previously found that epidermal growth factor (EGF) mediates growth through the Jun N-terminal kinase/stress-activated kinase (JNK/SAPK) pathway in A549 human lung carcinoma cells. As observed here, EGF treatment also greatly enhances the tumorigenicity of A549 cells, suggesting an important role for JNK in cancer cell growth (F. Bost, R. McKay, N. Dean, and D. Mercola, J. Biol. Chem. 272:33422-33429, 1997). Several isoforms families of JNK, JNK1, JNK2, and JNK3, have been isolated; they arise from alternative splicing of three different genes and have distinct substrate binding properties. Here we have used specific phosphorothioate oligonucleotides targeted against the two major isoforms, JNK1 and JNK2, to discriminate their roles in EGF-induced transformation. Multiple antisense sequences have been screened, and two high-affinity and specific candidates have been identified. Antisense JNK1 eliminated steady-state mRNA and JNK1 protein expression with a 50% effective concentration (EC50) of <0.1 microM but did not alter JNK2 mRNA or protein levels. Conversely, antisense JNK2 specifically eliminated JNK2 steady-state mRNA and protein expression with an EC50 of 0.1 microM. Antisense JNK1 and antisense JNK2 inhibited by 40 and 70%, respectively, EGF-induced total JNK activity, whereas sense and scrambled-sequence control oligonucleotides had no effect. The elimination of mRNA, protein, and JNK activities lasted 48 and 72 h following a single Lipofectin treatment with antisense JNK1 and JNK2, respectively, indicating sufficient duration for examining the impact of specific elimination on the phenotype. Direct proliferation assays demonstrated that antisense JNK2 inhibited EGF-induced doubling of growth as well as the combination of active antisense oligonucleotides did. EGF treatment also induced colony formation in soft agar. This effect was completely inhibited by antisense JNK2 and combined-antisense treatment but not altered by antisense JNK1 alone. These results show that EGF doubles the proliferation (growth in soft agar as well as tumorigenicity in athymic mice) of A549 lung carcinoma cells and that the JNK2 isoform but not JNK1 is utilized for mediating the effects of EGF. This study represents the first demonstration of a cellular phenotype regulated by a JNK isoform family, JNK2.  (+info)

Effect of different lots of Mueller-Hinton agar on the interpretation of the gentamicin susceptibility of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. (2/1701)

Population distributions and quality control data for strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa tested for gentamicin susceptibility on six lots of Mueller-Hinton agar were analyzed. The lots of agar were used in three University of Washington hospitals from April 1975 through October 1977. The analyses indicated that the performance of members of the P. aeruginosa populations in each hospital closely followed the performance of the quality control strain, P. aeruginosa ATCC 27853, when tested on each lot of Mueller-Hinton medium. The variability of zone diameters with the P. aeruginosa populations and the quality control strain indicated that a fixed indeterminate range (13 to 16 mm) of gentamicin susceptibility was not applicable to these organisms as it was with the Enterobacteriaceae. Variability in gentamicin susceptibility results was demonstrated in both minimal inhibitory concentration and disk diffusion tests when eight selected P. aeruginosa strains and the quality control strain were tested on each lot of medium. This variation in susceptibility to gentamicin was not related to the total Ca(2+), Mg(2+), or Zn(2+) content of each lot of medium. The data demonstrated that a moving indeterminate range of gentamicin susceptibility, 3 to 6 mm below the mean zone diameter of the quality control strain, was a suitable criterion for strains tested on a single medium lot. These results illustrate the importance of defining stringent performance standards for media used in the susceptibility testing of P. aeruginosa with gentamicin and other aminoglycoside antibiotics.  (+info)

Diffusion through agar blocks of finite dimensions: a theoretical analysis of three systems of practical significance in microbiology. (3/1701)

A number of experimental methods in biology depend on the kinetics of diffusion of a substance through a gel. This paper reviews the diffusion equations, gives the experimental limitations for some useful cases, and presents computer simulations for cases that cannot be treated analytically. While double diffusion is not considered, three single-diffusion situations are treated. (1) Systems for the study of chemotaxis in the gliding bacterium Myxococcus xanthus. Experimental designs used for this in many cases in the literature were inappropriate and mathematical analysis of these is presented. (2) The development of gradient plates. The time necessary for vertical diffusion to become substantially complete and before diffusion in the direction of the original slant has proceeded significantly is calculated. (3) The application to antimicrobial disk susceptibility tests. The basis of the measurement of antibiotic sensitivities with disks containing antimicrobial agents, as routinely used in clinical microbiological and testing laboratories, is analysed and the limitations are assessed and improvements suggested.  (+info)

Quantitative studies on competitive activities of skin bacteria growing on solid media. (4/1701)

Earlier quantitative investigations of antagonism between skin bacteria were based on the use of liquid cultures, but a more realistic model has now been devised, based on the use of the surfaces of solid media. Pure or mixed inocula were spread evenly over suitable agar media in Petri dishes marked out with a standard grid. Growth curves were constructed from viable counts of the surface bacteria after they had been removed from excised squares of the agar media and dispersed. The method was highly reproducible, and competitive interactions were revealed more clearly than in studies with liquid media. An antibiotic-producing strain of Staphylococcus epidermidis (S6+) readily suppressed strains of Micrococcus, Corynebacterium and Streptococcus species. However, a Staphylococcus aureus strain which was less sensitive to the antibiotic effect of S6+ interacted in a complex manner, depending on the absolute and relative size of the S6+ inoculum.  (+info)

Mad-overexpression down regulates the malignant growth and p53 mediated apoptosis in human hepatocellular carcinoma BEL-7404 cells. (5/1701)

Mad protein has been shown as an antagonist of c-Myc protein in some cell lines. The effect of Mad protein to the malignant phenotype of human hepatoma BEL-7404 cell line was investigated experimentally. An eukarryotic vector pCDNA III containing full ORF fragment of mad cDNA was transfected into targeted cells. Under G418 selection, stable Mad-overexpressed cells were cloned. Studies on the effect of Mad over-expression in cell proliferation and cell cycle revealed that cell morphology of the Mad-overexpressed BEL-7404-M1 cells was significantly different from the parent and control vector transfected cells. DNA synthesis, cell proliferation and anchorage-independent growth in soft-agar of the mad-transfected cells were partially inhibited in comparison to control cells. Flow Cytometry analysis indicated that mad over-expression might block more transfectant cells at G0/G1 phase, resulting in the retardation of cell proliferation. RT-PCR detected a marked inhibition of the expression of cdc25A, an important regulator gene of G0/G1 to S phase in cell cycle. It was also found that Mad protein overexpression could greatly suppress p53-mediated apoptosis in BEL-7404-M1 cells in the absence of serume. Thus, Mad proteins may function as a negative regulator antagonizing c-Myc activity in the control of cell growth and apoptosis in human hepatocellular carcinoma BEL-7404 cells.  (+info)

Use of Dorset egg medium for maintenance and transport of Neisseria meningitidis and Haemophilus influenzae type b. (6/1701)

Studies of bacterial meningitis are hampered by the inability to maintain the viability of etiological agents during transport to reference laboratories. The long-term survival rate of 20 isolates of Neisseria meningitidis and Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) on Dorset egg medium, supplemented Columbia agar base medium, chocolate agar, and Amies medium was compared with that on 70% GC agar (chocolate) transport medium. N. meningitidis isolates were also inoculated onto 5% horse blood agar, and Hib was inoculated onto Haemophilus test medium. All of the N. meningitidis isolates remained viable on Dorset egg medium for 21 days; viability on the other media was poor after only 7 days. Recovery rates of Hib isolates were similar on Dorset egg and Haemophilus test media (100% after 21 days) and significantly better than on the other media. Dorset egg medium is inexpensive and easy to make and may be invaluable for studies of bacterial meningitis in developing countries.  (+info)

Variation in Microbial Identification System accuracy for yeast identification depending on commercial source of Sabouraud dextrose agar. (7/1701)

The accuracy of the Microbial Identification System (MIS; MIDI, Inc. ) for identification of yeasts to the species level was compared by using 438 isolates grown on prepoured BBL Sabouraud dextrose agar (SDA) and prepoured Remel SDA. Correct identification was observed for 326 (74%) of the yeasts cultured on BBL SDA versus only 214 (49%) of yeasts grown on Remel SDA (P < 0.001). The commercial source of the SDA used in the MIS procedure significantly influences the system's accuracy.  (+info)

Visualization and modelling of the thermal inactivation of bacteria in a model food. (8/1701)

A large number of incidents of food poisoning have been linked to undercooked meat products. The use of mathematical modelling to describe heat transfer within foods, combined with data describing bacterial thermal inactivation, may prove useful in developing safer food products while minimizing thermal overprocessing. To examine this approach, cylindrical agar blocks containing immobilized bacteria (Salmonella typhimurium and Brochothrix thermosphacta) were used as a model system in this study. The agar cylinders were subjected to external conduction heating by immersion in a water bath. They were then incubated, sliced open, and examined by image analysis techniques for regions of no bacterial growth. A finite-difference scheme was used to model thermal conduction and the consequent bacterial inactivation. Bacterial inactivation rates were modelled with values for the time required to reduce bacterial number by 90% (D) and the temperature increase required to reduce D by 90% taken from the literature. Model simulation results agreed well with experimental results for both bacteria, demonstrating the utility of the technique.  (+info)

AIMS--To determine the best medium for the primary isolation of Helicobacter pylori. METHODS--Sixty six gastric mucosal biopsy specimens frozen in 1 ml Cysteine Albimi media with 20% glycerol from 22 histologically proven H pylori infected patients were cultured on brain heart infusion agar (BHIA) with 7% fresh whole defibrinated horse blood, egg yolk agar (EYA), Columbia blood agar-cyclodextrin agar (CBA-Cd), and commercial trypticase soy agar (TSA) supplemented with 5% sheep blood. RESULTS--Successful primary isolation of H pylori was 96% with BHIA, 78% with TSA, 64% for EYA, and 32% with CBA-Cd. Colonies appeared earlier on BHIA (4.7 +/- 0.1 days, 5.3 +/- 0.4 days, 5.3 +/- 0.4 days, and 7.1 +/- 0.9 days for BHIA, TSA, EYA, and CBA-Cd) and there were more colonies on BHIA than on CBA-Cd, EYA or TSA (599 +/- 88, 104 +/- 66, 260 +/- 107, and 358 +/- 89, respectively). CONCLUSIONS--Success of a medium for passage of isolates apparently does not reliably predict usefulness for primary isolation. ...

Chocolate agar (CHOC) or chocolate blood agar (CBA) - is a nonselective, enriched growth medium used for isolation of pathogenic bacteria. It is a variant of the blood agar plate, containing red blood cells that have been lysed by slowly heating to 80 °C. Chocolate agar is used for growing fastidious respiratory bacteria, such as Haemophilus influenzae and Neisseria meningitidis. In addition, some of these bacteria, most notably H. influenzae, need growth factors such as NAD (factor V) and hemin (factor X), which are inside red blood cells; thus, a prerequisite to growth for these bacteria is lysis of the red blood cells. The heat also inactivates enzymes which could otherwise degrade NAD. The agar is named for the color and contains no actual chocolate. Chocolate agar with the addition of bacitracin becomes selective, it is most critically, for the genus Haemophilus. Another variant of chocolate agar called Thayer-Martin agar contains an assortment of antibiotics which select for Neisseria ...

High-throughput screens comparing growth rates of arrays of distinct micro-organism cultures on solid agar are useful, rapid methods of quantifying genetic interactions. Growth rate is an informative phenotype which can be estimated by measuring cell densities at one or more times after inoculation. Precise estimates can be made by inoculating cultures onto agar and capturing cell density frequently by plate-scanning or photography, especially throughout the exponential growth phase, and summarising growth with a simple dynamic model (e.g. the logistic growth model). In order to parametrize such a model, a robust image analysis tool capable of capturing a wide range of cell densities from plate photographs is required. Colonyzer is a collection of image analysis algorithms for automatic quantification of the size, granularity, colour and location of micro-organism cultures grown on solid agar. Colonyzer is uniquely sensitive to extremely low cell densities photographed after dilute liquid culture

Depending on the agar concentration, the film of liquid on the surface of the agar may be thick enough (?) to allow bacteria that have flagella to swim along the surface. Because the bacteria often move side-by-side in large groups this behaviour is called swarming. Often swarming on agar surfaces is facilitated by surfactants that the bacteria produce, which reduce the surface tension of the aqueous layer. Ive always assumed that bacteria living in soil and on other surfaces produce such surfactants as a way of getting surface-adsorbed nutrients into solution (thats how the surfactants we use in soaps and detergents do their job), but maybe surfactants are also advantageous for moving across surfaces with air-water interfaces, such as damp soil. The side-by-side cell orientation and movement may also be a consequence of surface-tension effects, as illustrated in this sketch ...

Hmmh... as far as I can tell that looks quite normal non-hemolytic growth typical to Bacillus species, though the angle and light are not ideal for spotting it. I am not sure what causes the darker coloration of the agar (Id call it deep red rather than black from what I see), but it is a common phenomenon possibly related to the use of other nutrients in the medium and to the change of pH or something. Bacteria break down and secrete various compounds, so I would not be surprised if some of those cause the darkening of the agar. Admittedly, I do not know the exact answer so if someone does, let us know. And the dark spot seems to be created by the administration of bacteriophages, as indicated in the text ...

If long term obsrvation is desired, a special slide needs to be made. Place masking tape on a slide, with a hold cut in the middle. Put a small drop of liquified NG agar on the slide and place a siliconized coverslip immediately on the agar. When the agar solidifies, remove the coverslip. Just prior to use, place a very small amount of E. coli on the agar, transfer a worm to the agar, and place a coverslip over the agar and the tape. Once the worm takes to eating the bacteria, it will settle down and can be readily observed for hours. ...

There is growing concern regarding the contribution of infilled turf fields on increased athlete infections. Abrasions that occur on these fields create a port of entry for pathogens such as Staphylococcus aureus that are present on the athletes skin or possibly on the fields surface. This study compares the occurrence of microbial populations on two infilled synthetic turf fields (year old turf vs. 6 year old turf) in three locations. Both fields were sampled once a week for at least 14 weeks (exact number varied on field and location) during the late summer and fall of a football season. Sites sampled included the sidelines, the middle of each field, and the end of each field. Tryptic Soy Agar was used to determine total microbial load, Mannitol Salt Agar for Staphylococcus, and Eosin Methylene Blue Agar to count the number of enteric organisms such as Escherichia coli. Much higher microbial populations were found on the older turf field with as much as a 104 increase over similar locations ...

Objectives: Removable surface-protecting disposable plastic barriers and disinfectant solutions are commonly used in dental clinics in order to sterilize surfaces and instruments from contaminations. In this study we isolated and identified 3 distinct bacteria from plastic barriers at the dental clinic, and compared the bactericidal effect of 5 different commercially available disinfectants on these bacteria. Methods: After dental procedures, bacteria were collected from surface-protecting plastic barriers at the dental clinic. Bacteria were cultured aerobically on Trypticase Soy Agar plates at 370C for 24hr, and 16S RNA analysis was used for the identification of 3 isolated and selected red, yellow, and white bacterial colonies. Bacteria were streaked on agar plates, exposed to the aerosol spray of Cavicide, Micrylium, OPTIM 33TB, UNISEPTA Plus and PureGreen-24 disinfectant solutions. Plates were incubated for 24hr to determine the extent of bacterial growth on the agar surface. Results: ...

Blood Agar and Hemolysis Certain bacterial species produce extracellular enzymes that lyse red blood cells in the blood agar (hemolysis). These hemolysin (extotoxin) radially diffuses outwards from the colony (or colonies) causing complete or partial destruction of the red cells (RBC) in the medium and complete denaturation of hemoglobin within the cells to colorless products.. Four types of hemolysis are produced in Sheep blood agar by Streptococci namely; Alpha hemolysis, Beta hemolysis, gamma hemolysis and alpha prime or wide zone alpha hemolysis.. Hemolysis is best observed by examining colonies grown under anaerobic conditions or inspecting sub-surface colonies.. How does one know if the colonies they are observing on a plate have caused alpha hemolysis or beta hemolysis?. Note: To know the type of blood agar hemolysis, the blood agar plate must be held up to a light source and observed with the light coming from behind (transmitted light)..

In this manuscript with Lev Truskinovsky, we developed a new nonlinear theory of large-strain incompatible surface growth. Surface growth is a crucial component of many natural and artificial processes from cell proliferation to additive manufacturing. In elastic systems, surface growth is usually accompanied by the development of geometrical incompatibility leading to residual stresses and triggering various instabilities. Here we developed a nonlinear theory of incompatible surface growth which quantitatively linkes deposition protocols with post-growth states of stress. ...

On the top plate the media is Tryptic Soy Agar (TSA), a standard complex medium. The background on this plate remains a neutral color, and microbes growing on it develop colonies which are colored by their natural pigments (pink for S. marcescens, deep violet for C. violaceum, and white for E. aerogenes). The cloud on this plate is a very light pink, typical of a young colony of S. marcescens.. The middle plate is Eosin Methylene Blue (EMB) agar, a medium which is selective for (does not inhibit the growth of) Gram negative microbes. EMB is also differential, in that it changes in response to fermentation products. Lactose and sucrose fermentation create acidic products, which turn eosin red or black. By consuming the medium, strong fermenters turn black with a metallic green sheen. If the organisms ferment but produce less acid, they turn pink to red on EMB agar. This can be seen in the light pink hue of the tree top on the middle plate. (I had hoped for stronger fermentation effects.) ...
CA and BiGGY agar are two chromogenic media which allow the presumptive differentiation of yeasts. CA contains various substrates for the enzymes of yeast species. It has been demonstrated that β-N-acetylgalactosaminidase which was produced by C. albicans enables the chromogenic substrates to be incorporated into the medium and the isolates of these species were seen as green colored colonies [16]. BiGGY agar contains bismuth sulphite and the growth on this medium produces brown to black colonies because of the extracellular reduction of bismuth sulphite to bismuth sulphide.. CA is reported to give green colonies of C. albicans and blue colonies of C. tropicalis. In this study 168 of 169 C. albicans isolates grew as distinctive light green colonies on CA, only one isolate was seen as off white colonies. Although we didnt have any C. dubliniensis isolates, differentiation of this species from C. albican s seems to be a problem in CA. Tintelnot et al [17] and Willinger et al [18] reported that ...
Various selective media were assessed for their ability to detect and differentiate Klebsiella oxytoca and Escherichia coli in environmental water samples. Only two, Membrane Lauryl Sulphate agar and Deoxycholate Agar, could differentiate the two coliforms from each other and from the background heterotrophs in water and this was a consequence of E. colis ability to grow at 44°C and 37°C whereas Kl. oxytoca could only grow at 37°C. Modified M‐FC medium effectively differentiated Kl. oxytoca but not E. coli in environmental samples. Other media characterized the different coliforms in pure culture but failed to do likewise in environmental samples. For example, pure cultures of E. coli fluoresced when MUG was added to the medium but single colonies on a mixed species plate failed to do so. MT7 agar distinguished the two coliforms from water heterotrophs but not from each other.. Full text not available from this repository.. ...
Five percent sheep blood and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide may also be added when susceptibility testing is done on Streptococcus species. This type is also commonly used for susceptibility testing of Campylobacter.. It has a few properties that make it excellent for antibiotic use. First of all, it is a non-selective, non-differential medium. This means that almost all organisms plated on here will grow. Additionally, it contains starch. Starch is known to absorb toxins released from bacteria, so that they cannot interfere with the antibiotics. Second, it is a loose agar. This allows for better diffusion of the antibiotics than most other plates. A better diffusion leads to a truer zone of inhibition.. Mueller-Hinton agar was co-developed by John Howard Mueller and Jane Hinton at Harvard as a culture for gonococcus and meningococcus, who published the method in 1941.[2]. ...

ISSN 0718-1957. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-19572007000200007.. Regarding macroalgae´s physiology, it is considered that substitutions on the L-Gal unit of agar polymers are representative of their biosynthesis. Studies performed within the Plant Cell Wall Polysaccharides Laboratory team have demonstrated the presence of 4-O-methyl-L-galactose in agar polymers from the rhodophycean thallophyte Gracilaria verrucosa and its linkage on the C-6 position of the D-Gal unit, which is also the site of O-methylation. Based on the 6-O-Me-Gal/ 4-O-Me-Gal ratio and the degree of substitution of D-Gal unit, a new approach for monitoring the characteristic events of agar metabolism was defined.

Cell hybrids between malignant mouse hepatoma cells and normal rat fibroblasts with approximately one set of chromosomes from each parent exhibited remarkable karyotypic stability. Most chromosomes of both parents were retained even after prolonged culture in vitro. Normally, such hybrids showed suppression of the transformed phenotype and formed no colonies in soft agar. However, two hybrids, BS140 and BS181, formed a few colonies in soft agar when many cells were seeded, and also occasional foci of cells were detected piling up in monolayer cell cultures. We isolated soft agar colonies (a-subclones) and sub-clones from foci (h-subclones) of both hybrids, and, as a control, subclones of cells from random areas without foci of one hybrid (BS181 p-subclones). When tested for soft agar growth, cells from the a- and h-subclones of both BS140 and BS181 formed colonies at frequencies comparable to the malignant mouse hepatoma parent, whereas the control cells of the BS181 p-subclones (like the normal ...

Differential media are especially helpful when trying to identify a specific species. Bacteria can show widely different characteristics when grown in contact with various nutrients. A blood plate, one type of differential media, is often used to identify whether bacteria can digest blood cells. This is especially useful when diagnosing infection diseases. Streptococcus pneumoniae, a species that causes one type of pneumonia, can be identified partly thanks to its hemolytic activity, hemolysis being the breakdown of red blood cells. There are three different characteristic types of hemolysis that can be seen by growing bacteria on blood agar: alpha, beta, and gamma. Alpha hemolytic bacteria will only affect the medium that the colony is touching, turning the agar from red to green. Beta hemolytic bacteria cause a rather more dramatic change, removing the color from the media for some distance around each colony. Alpha hemolysis is only a partial digestion of the blood cells, while beta is a ...

TGF-beta has the ability to transform rat fibroblasts, but it also induces neigbouring normal cells to eliminate newly arizing transformed cells. Therefore, the transforming effect of TGF-beta can only be demonstrated when it is added to rat fibroblasts sparsely seeded in soft agar. Combination of monolayer and soft agar cultures revealed the unexpected result that transformation of rat fibroblasts by TGF-beta acts on a distinct subpopulation rather than reaching the total population. As a consequence, the comparison of transformed cells with the parental untransformed random cell population is not adequate to define alterations acquired during the transformation process ...
