EXAFS study of zinc coordination in bacitracin A. (1/285)

Bacitracin is a dodecapeptide antibiotic produced by Bacillus sp. The antibacterial activity depends upon the peptide binding a divalent metal. Hitherto, the exact coordination of the cation has not been established. In particular the role played by the sulphur and nitrogen atoms of the thiazoline ring of bacitracin A has not been clear. Here the coordination of Zn2+ by bacitracin A has been studied using extended X-ray absorption fine structure. The experimental data are consistent with a model in which zinc is coordinated by one oxygen and three nitrogen atoms with the sulphur atom of the thiazoline ring not being directly involved in the zinc coordination.  (+info)

Lack of efficacy of oral bacitracin plus doxycycline for the eradication of stool colonization with vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium. (2/285)

In a prospective observational cohort study designed to assess the role of oral bacitracin solution plus doxycycline in the eradication of intestinal carriage of vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium (VREF) in patients on a renal ward, rectal swab specimens were obtained from 15 treated and 24 control patients. Cultures of the rectal swabs were negative for 15 (100%) of the antibiotic-treated vs. eight (33.3%) of the untreated patients (P < .001) on day 14. However, follow-up for a mean of 127 and 130 days revealed 9 of 15 (60%) and 15 of 24 (62.5%) in the treated and untreated cohorts (P = .86), respectively, carried VREF intermittently or persistently. Quantitative VREF stool cultures in the treated cohort revealed an initial 3.1-log10/g decrease, but there was an increase to pretreatment levels at 2-4 and 5-7 weeks post-treatment (7.8 and 7.4 log10/g). Oral bacitracin and doxycycline were not efficacious in reducing the carriage of VREF beyond the 2-week interval during which they were given.  (+info)

Resistance to bacitracin as modulated by an Escherichia coli homologue of the bacitracin ABC transporter BcrC subunit from Bacillus licheniformis. (3/285)

A small open reading frame from the Escherichia coli chromosome, bcrC(EC), encodes a homologue to the BcrC subunit of the bacitracin permease from Bacillus licheniformis. We show that disruption of the chromosomal bcrC(EC) gene causes bacitracin sensitivity and, conversely, that BcrC(EC) confers bacitracin resistance when expressed from a multicopy plasmid.  (+info)

Efficacy of a new cream formulation of mupirocin: comparison with oral and topical agents in experimental skin infections. (4/285)

A new cream formulation of mupirocin developed to improve patient compliance was compared with systemic and topical antibiotics commonly used to treat primary and secondary skin infections. A mouse surgical wound model infected with Staphylococcus aureus or Streptococcus pyogenes was used. Topical treatment was applied at 4 and 10 h postinfection or oral treatment at a clinically relevant dose was administered 4, 8, and 12 h postinfection; treatments were continued three times daily for a further 3 days. Mupirocin cream was significantly more effective than (P < 0.01; two of eight studies) or not significantly different from (six of eight studies) mupirocin ointment in reducing bacterial numbers. Mupirocin cream was similar in efficacy to oral flucloxacillin but significantly more effective (P < 0.001) than oral erythromycin. It was also similar in efficacy to cephalexin against S. pyogenes but superior against S. aureus (P < 0.01). Mupirocin cream had a similar efficacy to fusidic acid cream against S. aureus but was significantly superior against S. pyogenes (P < 0.01). A hamster impetigo model infected with S. aureus was also used. Topical or oral treatment was administered at 24 and 30 h postinfection (also 36 h postinfection for oral therapy) and then three times daily for a further 2 days. On day 5, mupirocin cream was significantly more effective than mupirocin ointment in one study (P < 0.01) and of similar efficacy in the other two studies. Mupirocin cream was not significantly different from fusidic acid cream or neomycin-bacitracin cream, but it was significantly superior (P < 0.01) to oral erythromycin and cephalexin. Mupirocin cream was as effective as, or superior to, oral and other topical agents commonly used for skin infections.  (+info)

Structural (shape-maintaining) role of the cell surface glycoprotein of Halobacterium salinarium. (5/285)

The obligate halophile, Halobacterium salinarium, maintains a rod-shaped morphology under normal growth conditions. Lactoperoxidase(EC 1.11.1.7;donor:hydrogen-peroxide oxidoreductase)-catalyzed iodination and treatment with proteolytic enzymes were used to demonstrate that the recently described envelope glycoprotein (Mescher, M.F. & Strominger, J.L. (1976) J. Biol. Chem. 251, 2005-2014) is the only major cell surface component of this organism. The morphological changes that accompany alteration of the structure of the glycoprotein by growth in the presence of bacitracin or its removal with proteolytic enzymes strongly suggest that it forms a rigid matrix at the cell surface and is responsible for maintenance of the characteristic rod shape.  (+info)

Potential errors in recognition of Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae. (6/285)

Here we describe four isolations of Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae associated with polyarthralgia and renal failure, septic arthritis, classic erysipeloid, and peritonitis. Although the biochemical identification was straightforward in each case, recognition presented a challenge to the clinical microbiologist, since in three cases E. rhusiopathiae was not initially considered due to unusual clinical presentations, in two cases the significance might not have been appreciated because growth was in broth only, and in one case the infection was thought to be polymicrobic. Because the Gram stain can be confusing, abbreviated identification schemes that do not include testing for H(2)S production could allow E. rhusiopathiae isolates to be misidentified as Lactobacillus spp. or Enterococcus spp. in atypical infections.  (+info)

The bacA gene, which determines bacitracin susceptibility in Streptococcus pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus, is also required for virulence. (7/285)

Homologues of Escherichia coli bacA, encoding extremely hydrophobic proteins, were identified in the genomes of Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pneumoniae. Allelic replacement mutagenesis demonstrated that the gene is not essential for in vitro growth in either organism, and the mutants showed no significant changes in growth rate or morphology. The Staph. aureus bacA mutant showed slightly reduced virulence in a mouse model of infection and an eightfold increase in bacitracin susceptibility. However, a Strep. pneumoniae bacA mutant was highly attenuated in a mouse model of infection, and demonstrated an increase in susceptibility to bacitracin of up to 160000-fold. These observations are consistent with the previously proposed role of BacA protein as undecaprenol kinase.  (+info)

The effect of feeding diets containing permitted antibiotics on the faecal excretion of Salmonella typhimurium by experimentally infected chickens. (8/285)

Groups of 45 chickens were fed continuously on diets containing 10 or 100 mg./kg. of different 'growth-promoting' antibiotics and infected orally with a nalidixic acid-resistant mutant of Salmonella typhimurium. The amount of S. typhimurium organisms excreted in their faeces was estimated by culturing them at weekly intervals and in a standard manner on plates of brilliant green agar containing sodium nalidixate, both direct and after enrichment in selenite broth. All of four groups fed diets containing 100 mg./kg. of nitrovin in three different experiments excreted much larger amounts of S. typhimurium than did groups fed antibiotic-free diets. In some, but not all, experiments, larger amounts were also excreted by groups fed diets containing 10 mg./kg. of nitrovin or 10 or 100 mg./kg. of flavomycin or tylosin. Feeding diets containing 10 or 100 mg./kg. of virginiamycin or bacitracin either did not influence or slightly increased the amount of S. typhimiurium excreted. Two groups fed continuously on diets containing 100 or 500 mg./kg. of sulphaquinoxaline for 44 days excreted smaller amounts of the S. typhimurium organisms that did groups fed antibiotic-free diets; no sulphonamide-resistant organisms of the S. typhimurium strain were isolated from the faeces.  (+info)

Streptococcus suis is a prominent pathogen causing septicemia and meningitis in swine and humans. Bacitracin is used widely as a growth promoter in animal feed and to control the spread of necrotic enteritis in most developing countries. This study aimed to characterize a novel membrane transporter module Sst comprising SstE, SstF, and SstG for bacitracin resistance. Comparative genomics and protein homology analysis found a potential efflux pump SstFEG encoded upstream of well-known bacitracin-resistance genes bceAB and bceRS. A four-fold decrease in bacitracin susceptibility was observed in sstFEG deletion mutant comparing with S. suis wildtype strain CZ130302. Further studies indicated that the bacitracin tolerance mediated by SstFEG is not only independent of the BceAB transporter, but also regulated by the two-component system BceSR. Given that SstFEG are harbored by almost all virulent strains, but not in the avirulent strains, we managed to explore its potential role in bacterial pathogencity.

The bacterial cell envelope is the first and major line of defence against threats from the environment. It is an essential and vulnerable structure that gives the cell its shape and counteracts the high internal osmotic pressure. It also provides an important sensory interface and molecular sieve, mediating both information flow and controlled transport of solutes. The cell envelope is also the target for numerous antibiotics. Therefore, the monitoring and maintaining of cell envelope integrity in the presence of envelope perturbating agents and conditions is crucial for survival. In Bacillus subtilis a complex regulatory network, consisting of 7 signal transducing systems, orchestrates the cell envelope stress response. Two forms of regulatory systems can be found: ECF-sigma factors and two component systems (TCS). One of these TCS is the LiaRS system that responds to cell wall antibiotics that interfere with the undecaprenol cycle and to perturbation of the cytoplasmic me! mbrane. It is ...

Electric current is that the flow of electrical charge, that is what electrical elements harness to remove darkness from or spin, or do no matter they are doing. once current flows into an electrical device, the costs get stuck on the plates as a result of they cant get past the insulating stuff. Electrons - charged particles - area unit sucked into one in every one of the plates, and it becomes overall charged. the massive mass of negative charges on one plate pushes away like charges on the opposite plate, creating it charged. when a particular range of natural philosophy accumulated on the plate, the battery can have the lean energy to push any new natural philosophy to enter the plate owing to the repulsion of this natural philosophy that area unit already there.. At this time, the electrical device is truly totally charged. the primary plate has developed an internet charge, and therefore the second plate has developed associate degree equal internet charge, making an electrical field ...

Some applications of cluster analysis in the Life Sciences and Medicine are as follows:. Anthropologists have clustered anthropometrical data, to reveal genetic differences between ancestral human races and help reconstruct their evolution.. Biochemists have clustered the amino acid composition of proteins and genes, to explain the evolutionary sequences of mutations originating new species.. Botanists have clustered vegetation samples, to describe the ecology of natural plant communities and indicate areas for agricultural development or conservation and methods for prevention of soil erosion. Mapping example here.. Clinical Psychologists have clustered extreme social behavioral patterns to identify psychological syndromes associated with autism.. Cytologists have clustered blood samples, to define blood groups and plasma types and develop methods of testing for abnormal cells. Doctors have clustered liver and renal disease syndromes; infant brain malfunctions; psychological stages of the ...

SUMMARY: Taurine has been reported to be a component of the capsular polysaccharide of the encapsulated M strain of Staphylococcus aureus. This led to a study of the uptake and metabolism of [1,2-14C]taurine in a variety of encapsulated and unencapsulated S. aureus strains. Taurine was taken up by all strains studied. A discrepancy between uptake measured as depletion of radioactivity from growth medium and as cell-associated radioactivity suggested that taurine may be catabolized to CO2 in some strains. In most strains, cell-associated radioactivity was located mainly in cold TCA-soluble (pool metabolites) fractions. About 90% of the cell-associated radioactivity was present in the pool metabolites fraction in the M strain, and about 10% in hot TCA-soluble (nucleic acid-teichoic acid-capsular polysaccharide) fraction. Radioactivity in spent medium and the capsular polysaccharide-containing fraction appeared to be present as taurine in this strain. Radioactivity in the pool metabolites fraction of three

Bacteria thrive in many different habitats, and therefore will encounter a multitude of environmental stresses. Survival requires the development of sophisticated response mechanisms that can identify potential threats and initiate regulatory cascades orchestrating the expression of defensive components. The cell envelope is the first layer of the cell to come in contact with any environmental agent. In Gram-positive bacteria this envelope is comprised of a cytoplasmic membrane surrounded by a thick multilayered cell wall. The cytoplasmic membrane forms an essential permeability barrier and is made of different types of complex lipids which vary not only in the length and modifications of the acylated fatty acid groups but also in the composition of their headgroups. The cell wall is a complex matrix consisting predominantly of equal amounts of peptidoglycan and teichoic acids with the addition of surface attached proteins. Cell wall synthesis and maturation requires both incorporation of new ...

Five separate trials were conducted to test the feeding value of Pacific Northwest grown soybeans for chickens and turkeys. Soybeans were obtained from farms near Walla Walla, Washington and incorporated into rations which were fed to replacement pullets, laying pullets, broiler chickens, turkey poults and market turkeys. These rations were either solvent soybean meal, extruded or raw soybean based and balanced isocalorically and isonitrogenously. Extruded and raw soybean rations fed laying pullets were supplemented with and without added methionine. Similarly, rations fed turkey poults were supplemented with and without added zinc bacitracin and procaine penicillin, and broiler rations with and without zinc bacitracin. In the first experiment, extruded soybeans were found to have essentially the same feeding value as solvent soybean meal for replacement pullets. The observed effects of feeding raw soybeans were delayed sexual maturity, reduced body weight, poor feed conversion, pancreatic ...

May function as a chaperone that inhibits aggregation of misfolded proteins. Negatively regulates the unfolded protein response (UPR) through binding to UPR sensors such as ERN1, which in turn inactivates ERN1 signaling. May also regulate the UPR via the EIF2AK3 UPR sensor. Plays a role in platelet aggregation and activation by agonists such as convulxin, collagen and thrombin.
