Effect of a staphylococcin on Neisseria gonorrhoeae. (1/1664)

Phage group 2 staphylococcal strain UT0002 contains a large 56S virulence plasmid with genes that code for both exfoliative toxin and a specific staphylococcin termed Bac R(1). Four penicillinase-producing strains and three penicillin-susceptible strains of Neisseria gonorrhoeae were killed by Bac R(1). After 30 min of growth of the penicillin-resistant TR1 strain in 62.5 arbitrary units of Bac R(1) per ml, loss of viability was approximately 90%, and, after 5 h, an approximately 99.99% loss of viability was observed. Lysis did not accompany cell death, and 84% of the Bac R(1) added to the growth medium was adsorbed to the gonococcal cells. The extracellular supernatant fluid from a substrain of staphylococcal strain UT0002 cured of the plasmid for Bac R(1) production had no lethal effect on the gonococcal strains. Bac R(1) was also shown to have bactericidal activity against an L-form of N. meningitidis, indicating that the outer envelope of a neisserial cell is not needed for bacteriocin activity. Ten different normal human sera were unable to neutralize Bac R(1) activity. The bacteriocin lacks adsorption specificity. It binds to but does not kill Escherichia coli cells, indicating that the cell envelope of gram-negative organisms can provide protection against the staphylococcin.  (+info)

Temperature and pH conditions that prevail during fermentation of sausages are optimal for production of the antilisterial bacteriocin sakacin K. (2/1664)

Sakacin K is an antilisterial bacteriocin produced by Lactobacillus sake CTC 494, a strain isolated from Spanish dry fermented sausages. The biokinetics of cell growth and bacteriocin production of L. sake CTC 494 in vitro during laboratory fermentations were investigated by making use of MRS broth. The data obtained from the fermentations was used to set up a predictive model to describe the influence of the physical factors temperature and pH on microbial behavior. The model was validated successfully for all components. However, the specific bacteriocin production rate seemed to have an upper limit. Both cell growth and bacteriocin activity were very much influenced by changes in temperature and pH. The production of biomass was closely related to bacteriocin activity, indicating primary metabolite kinetics, but was not the only factor of importance. Acidity dramatically influenced both the production and the inactivation of sakacin K; the optimal pH for cell growth did not correspond to the pH for maximal sakacin K activity. Furthermore, cells grew well at 35 degrees C but no bacteriocin production could be detected at this temperature. L. sake CTC 494 shows special promise for implementation as a novel bacteriocin-producing sausage starter culture with antilisterial properties, considering the fact that the temperature and acidity conditions that prevail during the fermentation process of dry fermented sausages are optimal for the production of sakacin K.  (+info)

The specific genes for lantibiotic mutacin II biosynthesis in Streptococcus mutans T8 are clustered and can be transferred en bloc. (3/1664)

Mutacin II is a ribosomally synthesized peptide lantibiotic produced by group II Streptococcus mutans. DNA sequencing has revealed that the mutacin II biosynthetic gene cluster consists of seven specific open reading frames: a regulator (mutR), the prepromutacin structural gene (mutA), a modifying protein (mutM), an ABC transporter (mutT), and an immunity cluster (mutFEG). Transformations of a non-mutacin-producing strain, S. mutans UA159, and a mutacin I-producing strain, S. mutans UA140, with chromosomal DNA from S. mutans T8 with an aphIII marker inserted upstream of the mutacin II structural gene yielded transformants producing mutacin II and mutacins I and II, respectively.  (+info)

Identification and cloning of an Erwinia carotovora subsp. carotovora bacteriocin regulator gene by insertional mutagenesis. (4/1664)

Avirulent Erwinia carotovora subsp. carotovora CGE234-M403 produces two types of bacteriocin. For the purpose of cloning the bacteriocin genes of strain CGE234M403, a spontaneous rifampin-resistant mutant of this strain, M-rif-11-2, was isolated. By Tn5 insertional mutagenesis using M-rif-11-2, a mutant, TM01A01, which produces the high-molecular-weight bacteriocin but not the low-molecular-weight bacteriocin was obtained. By thermal asymmetric interlaced PCR, the DNA sequence from the Tn5 insertion site and the DNA sequence of a contiguous 1,280-bp region were determined. One complete open reading frame (ORF), designated ORF2, was identified within the sequenced fragment. The 3' end of another ORF, ORF1, was located upstream of ORF2. A noncoding region and a putative promoter were located between ORF1 and ORF2. Downstream from ORF2, the 5' end of another ORF (ORF3) was found. Deduction from the nucleotide sequence indicated that ORF2 encodes a protein of 99 amino acids, which showed high homology with Yersinia enterocolitica Yrp, a regulator of enterotoxin (Y-ST) production; Escherichia coli host factor 1, required for Qbeta-replicase; and Azorhizobium caulinodans NrfA, required for the expression of nifA. ORF2 was designated brg, bacteriocin regulator gene. A fragment containing ORF2 and its promoter was amplified and cloned into pBR322 and pHSG415r, and the recombinant plasmids, pBYL1 and pHYL1, were transferred into E. coli DH5. Plasmid pBYL1 was reisolated and transferred into the insertion mutant TM01A01. Transformants carrying the plasmid, which was reisolated and designated pBYL1, re-produced the low-molecular-weight bacteriocin.  (+info)

Escherichia coli outer membrane protein TolC is involved in production of the peptide antibiotic microcin J25. (5/1664)

A Tn5 insertion in tolC eliminated microcin J25 production. The mutation had little effect on the expression of the microcin structural gene and presumably acted by blocking microcin secretion. The tolC mutants carrying multiple copies of the microcin genes were less immune to the microcin. TolC is thus likely a component of a microcin export complex containing the McjD immunity protein, an ABC exporter.  (+info)

Inactivation of the dlt operon in Staphylococcus aureus confers sensitivity to defensins, protegrins, and other antimicrobial peptides. (6/1664)

Positively charged antimicrobial peptides with membrane-damaging activity are produced by animals and humans as components of their innate immunity against bacterial infections and also by many bacteria to inhibit competing microorganisms. Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus xylosus, which tolerate high concentrations of several antimicrobial peptides, were mutagenized to identify genes responsible for this insensitivity. Several mutants with increased sensitivity were obtained, which exhibited an altered structure of teichoic acids, major components of the Gram-positive cell wall. The mutant teichoic acids lacked D-alanine, as a result of which the cells carried an increased negative surface charge. The mutant cells bound fewer anionic, but more positively charged proteins. They were sensitive to human defensin HNP1-3, animal-derived protegrins, tachyplesins, and magainin II, and to the bacteria-derived peptides gallidermin and nisin. The mutated genes shared sequence similarity with the dlt genes involved in the transfer of D-alanine into teichoic acids from other Gram-positive bacteria. Wild-type strains bearing additional copies of the dlt operon produced teichoic acids with higher amounts of D-alanine esters, bound cationic proteins less effectively and were less sensitive to antimicrobial peptides. We propose a role of the D-alanine-esterified teichoic acids which occur in many pathogenic bacteria in the protection against human and animal defense systems.  (+info)

Membrane topology of the lactococcal bacteriocin ATP-binding cassette transporter protein LcnC. Involvement of LcnC in lactococcin a maturation. (7/1664)

Many non-lantibiotic bacteriocins of lactic acid bacteria are produced as precursors with N-terminal leader peptides different from those present in preproteins exported by the general sec-dependent (type II) secretion pathway. These bacteriocins utilize a dedicated (type I) secretion system for externalization. The secretion apparatus for the lactococcins A, B, and M/N (LcnA, B, and M/N) from Lactococcus lactis is composed of the two membrane proteins LcnC and LcnD. LcnC belongs to the ATP-binding cassette transporters, whereas LcnD is a protein with similarities to other accessory proteins of type I secretion systems. This paper shows that the N-terminal part of LcnC is involved in the processing of the precursor of LcnA. By making translational fusions of LcnC to the reporter proteins beta-galactosidase (LacZ) and alkaline phosphatase (PhoA*), it was shown that both the N- and C-terminal parts of LcnC are located in the cytoplasm. As the N terminus of LcnC is required for LcnA maturation and is localized in the cytoplasm, we conclude that the processing of the bacteriocin LcnA to its mature form takes place at the cytosolic side of the cytoplasmic membrane.  (+info)

Effects of antibiotics on metabolism of peptidoglycan, protein, and lipids in Bifidobacterium bifidum subsp. pennsylvanicus. (8/1664)

The formation of cell envelope components of Bifidobacterium bifidum subsp. pennsylvanicus was studied by measuring the incorporation of [(3)H]glycine, (14)C-labeled fatty acids, and N-benzoyl-[(14)C]glucosamine into the membrane protein, membrane lipids, and cell wall peptidoglycan, respectively. Inhibition of peptidoglycan synthesis by antibiotics (penicillin G, vancomycin, d-cycloserine, and bacitracin) and by the omission of glucosamine-containing growth factors caused a marked decrease in glycine incorporation into cellular as well as membrane protein, which was accompanied by a considerable enhancement of fatty acid incorporation. The uncoupling of protein and lipid synthesis led to the release of marked amounts of lipids from the cell under these conditions. Arrestment of protein synthesis by antibiotics (chloramphenicol, tetracycline, and actinomycin D) decreased peptidoglycan and lipid synthesis only partially, but did not lead to lipid release. Mg(2+) deficiency of the medium caused about 60% inhibition of growth and lipid synthesis, but protein synthesis and especially peptidoglycan synthesis were much less inhibited. Staphylococcin 1580 arrested the growth and also the synthesis of protein and peptidoglycan. However, the synthesis and turnover of lipids were considerably increased and a release of large amounts of lipids was observed. Peptidoglycan and cellular protein did not show any turnover either during normal growth or after the inhibition of cell wall and protein synthesis.  (+info)

Class II bacteriocins are a class of small peptides that inhibit the growth of various bacteria. Many Gram-positive bacteria produce ribosomally synthesized antimicrobial peptides, termed bacteriocins. Bacteriocins for which disulfide bonds are the only modification to the peptide are Class II bacteriocins. One important and well studied class of bacteriocins is the class IIa or pediocin-like bacteriocins produced by lactic acid bacteria. All class IIa bacteriocins are produced by food-associated strains, isolated from a variety of food products of industrial and natural origins, including meat products, dairy products and vegetables. Class IIa bacteriocins are all cationic, display anti-Listeria activity, and kill target cells by permeabilizing the cell membrane. Class IIa bacteriocins contain between 37 and 48 residues. Based on their primary structures, the peptide chains of class IIa bacteriocins may be divided roughly into two regions: a hydrophilic, cationic and highly conserved N-terminal ...
In this study, we determined the nature of the two antimicrobial substances produced by S. mutans strain UA140; one is identical to mutacin I produced by strain CH43, and the other is a two-peptide nonlantibiotic bacteriocin, which we named mutacin IV. The two peptides of mutacin IV, NlmA and NlmB, are encoded by two genes in a single operon located on contig 450 in the S. mutansgenome database. nlmA encodes a prepeptide of 67 aa, consisting of a 23-aa leader peptide with a double-glycine cleavage site and a 44-aa mature peptide. nlmB encodes a prepeptide of 71 aa consisting of a 22-aa leader peptide, also with a double-glycine processing signal, and a 49-aa mature peptide. The fact that the calculated molecular mass of the mature NlmA and NlmB peptides matches the measured molecular mass of the purified mutacin IV peptides suggests that neither peptide is posttranslationally modified.. The production of lantibiotic mutacin I and nonlantibiotic mutacin IV in UA140 appeared to be regulated by ...
Bacteriocins represent a rather underutilized class of antimicrobials despite often displaying activity against many drug-resistant pathogens. Lantibiotics are a post-translationally modified class of bacteriocins, characterized by the presence of lanthionine and methyllanthionine bridges. In this study, a novel two-peptide lantibiotic was isolated and characterized. Formicin was isolated from Bacillus paralicheniformis APC 1576, an antimicrobial-producing strain originally isolated from the intestine of a mackerel. Genome sequencing allowed for the detection of the formicin operon and, from this, the formicin structural genes were identified, along with those involved in lantibiotic modification, transport and immunity. The identified bacteriocin was subsequently purified from the bacterial supernatant. Despite the degree of conservation seen amongst the entire class of two-peptide lantibiotics, the formicin peptides are unique in many respects. The formicin α peptide is far less hydrophobic than any
The Role of Bacteriocins in Mediating Bacterial Competitive Interactions. Explaining the coexistence of competing species is a major challenge in community ecology. In bacterial systems, competition is often driven by the production of bacteriocins, which are narrow-spectrum proteinaceous toxins that serve to kill closely related species, providing the producer better access to limited resources. Bacteriocin producers have been shown to competitively exclude sensitive, nonproducing strains. However, the dynamics between bacteriocin producers, each lethal to its competitor, are largely unknown. In this study, we used in vitro, in vivo and in silico models to study competitive interactions between bacteriocin producers. Two Escherichia coli strains were generated, each carrying a DNA-degrading bacteriocin (colicins E2 and E7). Using reporter-gene assays, we showed that each DNase bacteriocin is not only lethal to its opponent but, at lower doses, can also induce the expression of its opponents ...

Lantibiotic biosynthetic machinery is encoded by gene cluster composed by a structural gene that codes for a pre-lantibiotic peptide and other genes involved in pre-lantibiotic modifications, regulation, export and immunity. Methodology/Findings: Bacillus amyloliquefaciens GA1 was found to produce an antimicrobial peptide, named amylolysin, active on an array of Gram-positive bacteria, including methicillin ...
The bactericidal efficiency of ultrahigh hydrostatic pressure (UMP) and pulsed electric field (PEF) were studied in combination with two acteriocins, nisin A and pediocin AcH, and lysozyme. Several Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial species and strains associated with food spoilage and foodborne diseases were tested. The results showed that both UHP and PEF inflict lethal and sublethal injury to Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial cells. As the sublethally-injured cells became sensitive to the bactericidal action of the two bacteriocins and lysozyme, the combination of the UHP and PEF treatment, along with bacteriocin and lysozyme resulted in greater viability loss than when only the UHP or PEF are used. In general, under the study conditions, UHP and bacteriocins produced more viability loss than PEF with and without bacteriocins. By combining bacteriocins and lysozyme, UHP at 30,000 psi for 1 min produced viability loss of 13.8 logs in Listeria monocytogenes Scott A and 6.3 logs in

Bacteria produce a diverse array of antagonistic compounds to restrict growth of microbial rivals. Contributing to this warfare are bacteriocins: secreted antibacterial peptides, proteins and multi-protein complexes. These compounds typically eliminate competitors closely related to the producer. Lectin-like bacteriocins (LlpAs) constitute a distinct class of such proteins, produced by Pseudomonas as well as some other proteobacterial genera. LlpAs share a common architecture consisting of two B-lectin domains, followed by a short carboxy-terminal extension. Two surface-exposed moieties on susceptible Pseudomonas cells are targeted by the respective lectin modules. The carboxy-terminal domain binds D-rhamnose residues present in the lipopolysaccharide layer, whereas the amino-terminal domain interacts with a polymorphic external loop of the outer-membrane protein insertase BamA, hence determining selectivity. The absence of a toxin-immunity module as found in modular bacteriocins and other polymorphic

N2 - Microcin C7 (McC) is a peptide antibiotic modified by a linkage of the terminal isoAsn amide to AMP via a phosphoramidate bond. Post-translational modification on this ribosomally produced heptapeptide precursor is carried out by MccB, which consumes two equivalents of ATP to generate the N-P linkage. We demonstrate that MccB only efficiently processes the precursor heptapeptide that retains the N-formylated initiator Met (fMet). Binding studies and kinetic measurements evidence the role of the N-formyl moiety. Structural data show that the N-formyl peptide binding results in an ordering of residues in the MccB "crossover loop", which dictates specificity in ...
The consortium will develop new antibiotics/antimicrobials, which have similar capabilities. The team will work with bacteriocins, potent toxins produced by bacteria to kill other, closely-related strains. Bacteriocins are naturally active in the human body but have not evolved to function as effective drugs in the clinic.. If a way can be found to convert bacteriocins into effective antibiotics, they offer excellent potential for use to address the growing problem of antibiotic resistance and the threat this poses to human and animal health around the world.. The consortium will take a model bacteriocin, discovered by University of Plymouth staff, and enhance its performance in terms of range of action, stability and potency. The aim is to generate derivatives which show drug-like properties without compromising the bacteriocins original potent bacteria-killing abilities. The manufacture of the derivatives will then be scaled-up into commercially attractive production systems.. Mathew Upton, ...

Lantibiotics are peptides, produced by bacteria, that contain the noncanonicalamino acid lanthionine and many of them exhibit antibacterial activities. The labyrinthopeptin A1 (LabyA1) is a prototype peptide of a novel class of carbacyclic lantibiotics. Here, we extensively evaluated its broad-spectrum activity against HIV and HSV in vitro, studied its mechanism of action and evaluated potential microbicidal applications. LabyA1 exhibited a consistent and broad anti-HIV activity (EC(50)s:0.70-3.3 mu M) and anti-HSV activity (EC(50)s:0.29-2.8 mu M) in cell cultures. LabyA1 also inhibited viral cell-cell transmission between persistently HIV-infected T cells and uninfected CD4(+) T cells (EC50:2.5 mu M) and inhibited the transmission of HIV captured by DC-SIGN(+)-cells to uninfected CD4(+) T cells (EC50:4.1 mu M). Time-of-drug addition studies revealed that LabyA1 acts as an entry inhibitor against HIV and HSV. Cellular and virus binding studies combined with SPR/FLIPR technology showed that ...
Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) are generally recognized as safe. It has been used to increase the shelf-life of fermented products, and its antimicrobial action is based on the metabolites secretions, such as lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide, reuterin, bacteriocins and the like-bacteriocins substances. It has been proven that LAB are able to inhibit deteriorating bacteria of raw meat, but improper handling of live cultures could lead to spoilage. So, the use of their bacteriocins, small antimicrobial peptides, could be an alternative. Besides reducing the number of spoilage bacteria, it seeks to inhibit pathogenic bacteria such as Salmonella, enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli and Listeria. The food industry uses few bacteriocins and now bacterial resistance has been reported. For that reason, the search of novel bacteriocins produced by LAB is a priority. Moreover, the natural microbiota of meat could be a reservoir of LAB.

Also, some antibiotic-resistant bacteria are actually less virulent than the sensitive bacteria, again implying a cost to the host for holding on to the plasmid. These resistant bacteria are often crowded out by the normal bacterial flora of the body. However, if the body is exposed to antibiotic, the sensitive bacteria die off, and the resistant bacteria are able to grow out and express their virulence.. Antibiotic resistance is certainly a matter of natural selection, but its more than just that. For example, all it takes in an ICU to have an outbreak of certain resistant strains is for one inoculum to be brought in. That inoculum will spread and its resistance plasmids will be exchanged with the non-resistant bacteria (and, dare I say, "emerge:"). Granted, if there is a selective pressure (the use of the antibiotic to which the resistant bacteria is resistant), that spread will happen a lot faster, but it will still happen to some extent even without the selection. Also, even a small number ...

In this paper we analyze the population dynamics of bacteria competing by anti-bacterial toxins (bacteriocins). Three types of bacteria involved in these dynamics can be distinguished: toxin producers, resistant bacteria and sensitive bacteria. Their interplay can be regarded as a Rock-Scissors-Paper - game (RSP). Here, this is modeled by a reasonable three-dimensional Lotka- Volterra ($L$V) type differential equation system. In contrast to earlier approaches to modeling the RSP game such as replicator equations, all interaction terms have negative signs because the interaction between the three different types of bacteria is purely competitive, either by toxification or by competition for nutrients. The model allows one to choose asymmetric parameter values. Depending on parameter values, our model gives rise to a stable steady state, a stable limit cycle or a heteroclinic orbit with three fixed points, each fixed point corresponding to the existence of only one bacteria type. An alternative ...

Intravenous inoculations of from 1 to 3 cc. per kilo of body weight of a bouillon culture of virulent pneumococci produce septicemia and meningitis in dogs.. The injected pneumococci leave the circulation rapidly, but begin to reinvade the blood from 24 to 48 hours later. The septicemia reaches its climax between the 4th and 5th days and then abruptly declines, the blood becoming sterile within from 1 to 3 days after the height of the septicemia is reached.. The initial disappearance of the pneumococci from the circulation has been found to be due to agglutination of the diplococci in the blood stream and accumulation of the clumps in the lungs, liver, spleen, etc.. If the dogs are reinoculated during the ascension of the septicemia, the injected diplococci leave the circulation as rapidly as in normal dogs. Cultures isolated in this stage of the infection, both before and from 3 to 4 hours after the reinoculation, are resistant to the agglutinins and opsonins of immune sera that agglutinate and ...

Lysostaphin is an antimicrobial agent belonging to a major class of antimicrobial peptides and proteins known as the bacteriocins. Bacteriocins are bacterial antimicrobial peptides which generally exhibit bactericidal activity against other bacteria. Bacteriocin production is a self-protection mechanism that helps the microorganisms to survive in their natural habitats. Bacteriocins are currently distributed into three main classes. Staphylococcins are bacteriocins produced by staphylococci, which are Gram-positive bacteria of medical and veterinary importance. Lysostaphin is the only class III staphylococcin described so far. It exhibits a high degree of antistaphylococcal bacteriolytic activity, being inactive against bacteria of all other genera. Infections caused by staphylococci continue to be a problem worldwide not only in healthcare environments but also in the community, requiring effective measures for controlling their spread. Since lysostaphin kills human and animal staphylococcal pathogens,

Background Bacteriocins are antimicrobial peptides that are produced by bacteria as a defense mechanism in complex environments. Identification and characterization of novel bacteriocins in novel strains of bacteria is one of the important fields in bacteriology. Methodology/Findings The strain GI-9 was identified as Brevibacillus sp. by 16 S rRNA gene sequence analysis. The bacteriocin produced by strain GI-9, namely, laterosporulin was purified from supernatant of the culture grown under optimal conditions using hydrophobic interaction chromatography and reverse-phase HPLC. The bacteriocin was active against a wide range of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. MALDI-TOF experiments determined the precise molecular mass of the peptide to be of 5.6 kDa and N-terminal sequencing of the thermo-stable peptide revealed low similarity with existing antimicrobial peptides. The putative open reading frame (ORF) encoding laterosporulin and its surrounding genomic region was fished out from the draft
Chimeras of pediocin PA-1 (PedA-1), a bacteriocin produced by Pediococcus acidilactici PLBH9, fused to the signal peptide of enterocin P (EntP), a sec-dependent bacteriocin produced by Enterococcus faecium P13, permitted the production of PedA-1 in Lactococcus lactis. Chimeric genes encoding the EntP signal peptide (SP(entP)) fused to mature PedA-1 (pedA), with or without its immunity gene (pedB), were cloned into the expression vector pMG36c to generate the recombinant plasmids pMPP9 (SP(entP):pedA) and pMPP14i (SP(entP):pedA + pedB). Transformation of competent L. lactis subsp. lactis IL1403, L. lactis subsp. cremoris NZ9000, and L. lactis subsp. lactis DPC5598 with the recombinant plasmids has permitted the detection and quantitation of PedA-1 and the coproduction of nisin A and PedA-1 in supernatants of producer cells with specific anti-PedA-1 antibodies and a noncompetitive indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Recombinant L. lactis hosts carrying pMPP9 or pMPP14i displayed ...
Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) have historically been used in food fermentations to preserve foods and are generally-recognized-as-safe (GRAS) by the FDA for use as food ingredients. In addition to lactic acid; some strains also produce bacteriocins that have been proposed for use as food preservatives. In this study we examined the inhibition of Listeria monocytogenes 39-2 by neutralized and non-neutralized bacteriocin preparations (Bac+ preps) produced by Lactobacillus curvatus FS47; Lb. curvatus Beef3; Pediococcus acidilactici Bac3; Lactococcus lactis FLS1; Enterococcus faecium FS56-1; and Enterococcus thailandicus FS92. Activity differences between non-neutralized and neutralized Bac+ preps in agar spot assays could not readily be attributed to acid because a bacteriocin-negative control strain was not inhibitory to Listeria in these assays. When neutralized and non-neutralized Bac+ preps were used in microplate growth inhibition assays against L. monocytogenes 39-2 we observed some differences

Bacteriocins are antimicrobial metabolites produced by lactic acid bacteria, which are being used as additives to prevent microbial spoilage of food items. Bacteriocins in free form are degraded by the enzymes present in the fruit juices. Encapsulation matrix protects the bacteriocin from food components. The present study was designed to elucidate the effectiveness of calcium alginate entrapped bacteriocin of Lactobacillus acidophilus in preservation of fruit juices. Calcium alginate gel was chosen as immobilization matrix because it is cheap, abundant and bio safe. Bacteriocin of Lactobacillus acidophilus NCDC 343 showed wide spectrum of antimicrobial activity against pathogenic and food spoilage microorganisms. It inhibited the growth of Staphylococcus aureus, Erwinia sp., Bacillus subtilis, Pseudomonas fluorescens, Leuconostoc mesenteroids and Listeria monocytogenes. Immobilized ...
In general, pediocin production displays primary metabolite kinetics with the rate of production paralleled the growth rate [5, 36, 56, 58, 74-76]. Pediocin AcH from P. acidilactici H, was detected in the fermentation broth in much higher amounts after the culture pH had reached 4.0 and growth entered the late exponential phase. Even after the cells had reached the stationary phase (18 hours), considerable amounts of pediocin were produced [5]. Anastasiadou et al. [36] presented kinetic studies of production of pediocin SA-1 from P. acidilactici and pediocin SM-1 from P. pentosaceus [56] at different dissolved oxygen levels. Under semi aerobic conditions, that supported the highest specific pediocin production rates, specific production rates followed the specific growth rates and production of both pediocins followed the trend of biomass production. In both cases, production ceased once the stationary phase of growth was reached. Maximum pediocin SA-1 levels were detected at 14 hours (160 ...

Glutathionylation is generally a reversible posttranslational modification that occurs to cysteine residues that have been exposed to reactive oxygen species (P-SSG). This cyclical process can regulate various clusters of proteins, including those involved in critical cellular signaling functions. However, certain conditions can favor the formation of dehydroamino acids, such as 2,3-didehydroalanine (2,3-dehydroalanine, DHA) and 2,3-didehydrobutyrine (2,3-dehydrobutyrine), which can act as Michael acceptors. In turn, these can form Michael adducts with glutathione (GSH), resulting in the formation of a stable thioether conjugate, an irreversible process referred to as nonreducible glutathionylation. This is predicted to be prevalent in nature, particularly in more slowly turning over proteins. Such nonreducible glutathionylation can be distinguished from the more facile cycling signaling processes and is predicted to be of gerontological, toxicological, pharmacological, and oncological relevance.

The structure of the Tse3-Tsi3 complex associated with the bacterial type VI secretion system of P. aeruginosa has been solved and refined at 1.9 Å resolution. The structural basis of the recognition of the muramidase effector and its inactivation by its cognate immunity protein is revealed. The type VI secretion system (T6SS) is a bacterial protein-export machine that is capable of delivering virulence effectors between Gram-negative bacteria. The T6SS of Pseudomonas aeruginosa transports two lytic enzymes, Tse1 and Tse3, to degrade cell-wall peptidoglycan in the periplasm of rival bacteria that are competing for niches via amidase and muramidase activities, respectively. Two cognate immunity proteins, Tsi1 and Tsi3, are produced by the bacterium to inactivate the two antibacterial effectors, thereby protecting its siblings from self-intoxication. Recently, Tse1-Tsi1 has been structurally characterized. Here, the structure of the Tse3-Tsi3 complex is reported at 1.9 Å resolution. The results ...
FIG 2 Competitive interactions between S. aureus and other microbes. S. aureus exhibits antagonism toward P. aeruginosa, Streptococcus sp., and Lactobacillus sp. P. aeruginosa produces phenazine (PZ), hydrogen cyanide (HCN), quinolone oxidase (QO), and pyocyanin (PY), resulting in the respiratory blockage of S. aureus, which in turn leads to the formation of small-colony variants (SCVs). SCVs are more persistent and are resistant to antibiotics. Lactobacillus sp. and Streptococcus sp. inhibit the growth of S. aureus by producing hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). S. aureus produces staphyloxanthin and catalase, which neutralize the toxic effects of H2O2. Additionally, Lactobacillus spp. produce organic acids and bacteriocins that limit the growth of S. aureus. Certain S. aureus strains also produce bacteriocins such as staphylococcin Au 26, which in turn inhibit the growth of lactobacilli. Blocked arrows indicate antagonism, and arrows indicate survival strategies of S. aureus. ...
Lactobacillus pentosus TV35b, isolated from the posterior fornix secretions of the vagina of a prenatal patient, produced a bacteriocin-like peptide (pentocin TV35b), which is inhibitory to Clostridium sporogenes, Cl. tyrobutyricum, Lact. curvatus, Lact. fermentum, Lact. sake, Listeria innocua, Propionibacterium acidipropionici, Propionibacterium sp. and Candida albicans. The mechanism of activity of pentocin TV35b is bactericidal, as shown by a decrease in the viable cell numbers of Lact. sake from approximately 4 x 108 to less than 10 cfu ml-1 over a period of 4 h. Pentocin TV35b added to the growth medium of C. albicans stimulated the formation of pseudohyphae during the first 36 h, followed by a slight repression in cell growth. Production of pentocin TV35b was at its maximum towards the end of the logarithmic growth phase of strain TV35b. The peptide was purified by ammonium sulphate precipitation, followed by SP-Sepharose cation exchange chromatography. The molecular size of pentocin TV35b ...
Sand, Sverre L.; Haug, Trude M; Nissen-Meyer, Jon & Sand, Olav (2006). Clonal rat anterior pituitary cells (GH4 cells) are permeabilized by plantaricin A, a peptide pheromone produced by Lactobacillus plantarum. SFN Abstract Viewer/Itinerary Planner. Vis sammendrag Antimicrobial peptides and proteins, generally referred to as bacteriocins, are produced by numerous strains of bacteria. Plantaricin A (PlnA) is a 26-mer peptide pheromone that induces bacteriocin production in the strain from which it is released, Lactobacillus plantarum C11. Although pheromone activity is the prime biological function of PlnA, the peptide also has membrane-permeabilizing strain-specific antibacterial activity. The pheromone activity of PlnA depends on its binding to specific receptors, preceded by a non-chiral interaction with the target cell membrane. The latter mechanism is presumably responsible for the membrane-permeabilizing effect on sensitive strains. We have studied the effect of PlnA on the GH4 cell line ...
While a time release protein can be a simple egg white protein or casein protein, the best ones would be a mixture of different types of protein sources which we call a protein blend such as whey and casein or whey, casein and egg albumen just to cite a few examples.. The great thing about a time release protein is the added benefit of multiple stage release of amino acids into your bloodstream since these proteins digest at different rates from fast, medium to slow. Whey is a fast-acting protein, egg white is a medium-release protein while casein is a slow-release protein. In other words, you get the best of both worlds.. A time release protein will promote quick muscle growth while keeping your body anabolic for an extended period of time thanks to the casein present in most protein blends which provides a sustained release of amino acids up to 7-8 hours or more. There are several types of casein protein notably micellar casein, calcium caseinate and milk protein isolate. For the instant ...

Bacillus cereus is a Gram positive rod-shaped aerobic, endospore-forming bacterium. Strains of B. cereus are widely distributed in the environment, mainly in soil, from where they easily spread to many types of foods, especially of vegetable origin, as well as meat, eggs, milk, and dairy products. This bacterium is one of the leading causes of food poisoning in the developed world. B. cereus causes two types of food-borne intoxications. One type is characterized by nausea and vomiting and abdominal cramps and has an incubation period of 1 to 6 hours. This is the "short-incubation" or emetic form of the disease. The second type is manifested primarily by abdominal cramps and diarrhea with an incubation period of 8 to 16 hours. This type is referred to as the "long-incubation" or diarrheal form of the disease [1, 2].. Different strategies may be employed to prevent B. cereus poisoning, like heating food above 75°C before use to kill vegetative cells. However, increasing trends for use of packed ...

Thirty-seven nonhemolytic/nonbacteriocinogenic mutations in Enterococcus (Streptococcus) faecalis plasmid pAD1 were generated by Tn917 insertion. All were found to belong to one of two complementation classes. Each class of mutants secreted either hemolysin/bacteriocin (Hly/Bac) component A or L into the culture medium. DNA encoding Hly/Bac was cloned in Escherichia coli in which both components of the hemolysin were expressed individually and collectively. The region encoding components A and L was further defined by deletion analysis and physically mapped. A total of approximately 8.4 kilobases of pAD1 DNA were observed to be required for hemolysin expression. Hly/Bac activity of the wild-type and the inactive L substance was observed to be heat stable. Active Hly/Bac resulting from incubating separately secreted components A and L was also found to be heat stable. The results indicate that component A activates component L and that activated component L possesses the Hly/Bac activity. ...

CNN) -- Health officials have been warning us about antibiotic overuse and drug-resistant "superbugs" for a long time. But today the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is sounding the alarm in a new way.. For the first time, the CDC is categorizing drug-resistant superbugs by threat level. Thats because, in their conservative estimates, more than 2 million people get antibiotic-resistant infections each year, and at least 23,000 die because current drugs no longer stop their infections.. Antibiotics are designed to kill bacteria that cause infection. However, in the process they can also kill so-called good bacteria (the human body hosts about 100 trillion).. The Missouri Department of Health explains it this way: "Every time a person takes antibiotics, sensitive bacteria are killed, but resistant germs may be left to grow and multiply. Repeated and improper uses of antibiotics are primary causes of the increase in drug-resistant bacteria.". Some bad bacteria are naturally resistant to ...

On April 27, 1983, 14 (20%) of 69 persons attending a brunch had acute onset of rash, pruritis, and sensation of warmth. The illness was of relatively short duration, with an incubation period of approximately 30 minutes after consumption of one or more pumpernickel bagels served at the brunch. Of 25 persons who ate the bagels, 14 (56%) became ill, whereas none of the 44 persons who did not eat pumpernickel bagels became ill. The bagels had been produced at a local bagel factory from a batch of dough originally prepared on April 23. A review of reports from the hospital emergency room serving the area revealed that an emergency-room visit was made by one person with similar symptoms on April 24 and by two other persons on April 27. All three had eaten pumpernickel bagels made from the same batch of dough. Because the pumpernickel bagels were very light in color, the ingredients were suspected. Investigation revealed that, in an attempt to enrich the pumpernickel flour, a large quantity of niacin ...
Antimicrobial resistance needs to be tackled from new angles, and antimicrobial peptides could be future candidates for combating bacterial infections. This study aims to investigate in vitro the bactericidal effects of the lantibiotic gallidermin on Staphylococcus epidermidis and Staphylococcus aureus, possible cytotoxic effects and its impact on host-microbe interactions. Minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimal bactericidal concentration (MBC) of gallidermin were determined, and cytotoxicity and proinflammatory effects of gallidermin on fibroblasts, red blood cells (RBCs) and in whole blood were investigated. Both MIC and MBC for all four tested strains of S. epidermidis was 6.25 μg/ml. Both MIC and MBC for methicillin-sensitive S. aureus was 12.5 μg/ml and for methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) 1.56 μg/ml. Gallidermin displayed no cytotoxic effects on fibroblasts, only a high dose of gallidermin induced low levels of CXCL8 and interleukin-6. Gallidermin hemolyzed less than ...
Early History of Phage Therapy The first paper describing the clinical use of phage therapy was published in 1921 by Bruynoghe & Maisin who used a staphylococcal-specific phage to treat cutaneous furuncles and carbuncles. The development of electron microscopes resulted in the first description of phage as sperm-shaped particles by Ruska in Germany in 1940. Questions over the scientific rigour of the published phage therapy reports, together with the beginning of the golden age of antibiotic discovery, reduced interest in bacteriophage therapy except in the Soviet Union and in Poland. Smith & Huggins in England carried out important experiments using phage therapy to treat E.coli infections in mice, calves, piglets and lambs in 1982 and 1983. The first phase 1 randomized controlled trial conducted in the USA by Rhoads et al. was published in 2009 and evaluated the safety of a cocktail of phages in 42 patients with chronic venous leg ulcers. Another randomized controlled clinical trial that ...
Objective. To evaluate the safety of the antimicrobial peptide, lactocin 160. Methods. Lactocin 160, a product of vaginal probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus 160 was evaluated for toxicity and irritation. An in vitro human organotypic vaginal-ectocervical tissue model (EpiVaginal) was employed for the safety testing by determining the exposure time to reduce tissue viability to 50% (ET-50). Hemolytic activity of lactocin160 was tested using 8% of human erythrocyte suspension. Susceptibility of lactobacilli to lactocin160 was also studied. Rabbit vaginal irritation (RVI) model was used for an in vivo safety evaluation. Results. The ET-50 value was 17.5 hours for lactocin 160 (4.9 hours for nonoxynol 9, N9). Hemolytic activity of lactocin 160 was 8.2% (N9 caused total hemolysis). Lactobacilli resisted to high concentrations of peptide preparation. The RVI model revealed slight vaginal irritation. An average irritation index grade was evaluated as "none." Conclusions. Lactocin 160 showed minimal ...
Leuconostoc mesenteroides (Tsenkovskii) van Tieghem 1878, Leuconostoc dextranicum (Beijerinck) Hucker and Pederson 1930, and Leuconostoc cremoris (Knudsen and Sørensen) Garvie 1960 belong to a single deoxyribonucleic acid homology group.

(asm.org)
  • The pediocin-like bacteriocins, also known as the class IIa bacteriocins, constitute a large group of peptides produced by lactic acid bacteria. (asm.org)
  • Particularly, the bacteriocins produced by lactic acid bacteria (LAB) have been the focus of much research because LAB and their metabolic products are generally regarded as safe (GRAS) [ 12 ] and have potential application as natural preservatives in the food industry [ 13 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • Here we briefly review the principal biopeptides (i.e., bacteriocins) of lactic acid bacteria, their main mode of action, the classification, and its biotechnological applications. (intechopen.com)
  • Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are among the most favorable microorganisms known for their probiotic properties and for the ability to produce antimicrobial compounds (i.e., bacteriocin, organic acids, diacetyl, hydrogen peroxide) with inhibitory action of harmful bacteria growth along with their critical role in food protection and health maintenance [ 1 - 3 ]. (intechopen.com)

  • This antibacterial activity makes bacteriocins a promising substitute or a synergistic component to the currently used antibiotics to overcome the emergency of bacterial resistance. (frontiersin.org)
  • Bacteriocins are bacterially-produced antimicrobial peptides that can have killing or inhibitory activity principally against other relatively closely-related bacterial species. (probiotic-conference.net)
  • When mice are challenged intranasally with a double-bacteriocin knockout, the bacterial burden is dramatically reduced compared to the wild-type and single bacteriocin mutant controls. (uwo.ca)
  • Furthermore, we show that nasal coinfection with S. pyogenes wild-type and spbJKMN - results in a wild-type dominant population, suggesting that bacteriocins enhance bacterial fitness in a polymicrobial environment. (uwo.ca)
  • Klaenhammer [ 8 ] suggested four classes of bacteriocins including class I or lantibiotics, which are small membrane-active peptides ( 5 kDa) containing the unusual amino acids lanthionine or β -methyl lanthionine (hence the name lantibiotics) and dehydrated residues. (hindawi.com)
  • This review highlights the practical difficulties with using bacteriocins to control pathogenic microorganisms, and provides an overview on the role of nanotechnology in improving the antimicrobial activity and the physicochemical properties of these peptides. (frontiersin.org)
  • Bacteriocins are categorized in several ways, including producing strain, common resistance mechanisms, and mechanism of killing. (wikipedia.org)
  • Further, the original naming is generally derived not from the sensitive strain the bacteriocin kills, but instead the organism that produces the bacteriocin. (wikipedia.org)
  • The orfY gene, which is transcribed without a cognate bacteriocin, was shown to encode a functional immunity protein that expands the bacteriocin resistance of the strain possessing this gene. (nih.gov)
  • The results show that the bacteriocin sensitivity of a lactic acid bacterium strain can depend on (1) the presence of immunity genes in connection with its own bacteriocin production, (2) the presence of extra immunity genes and (3) more general properties of the strain such as the membrane composition or the presence of receptors. (nih.gov)
  • The presence of two divergent MMBL domains in the novel bacteriocins raises questions about task distribution between modules and the possible role of carbohydrate binding in the specificity of target strain recognition and killing. (biochemsoctrans.org)
  • The antimicrobial sensitivity of a target strain to any given bacteriocin may depend on the ecological conditions under which it is grown as variations in salt concentration, pH, the presence of membrane disrupting molecules, or inducing cultures, and a large number of other environmental parameters can have a significant impact [ 5 , 6 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • Recent findings from our laboratory have identified two novel Class IIb bacteriocin systems - Streptococcus pyogenes bacteriocin (Spb) JK and MN in the M18 serotype S. pyogenes strain MGAS8232 - that may contribute to nasopharyngeal infection. (uwo.ca)
  • A nonlantibiotic class IIB bacteriocin, mutacin IV, was purified from S. mutans strain UA140, which also produces the lantibiotic mutacin I ( 27 ). (asm.org)
  • Indeed, short chain mixtures were disordered by enterocin CRL35, but the gel-phases of membranes composed by longer acyl chains were clearly stabilized by the bacteriocin. (medworm.com)
  • Bacteriocins that contain the modified amino acid lanthionine as part of their structure are called lantibiotics. (wikipedia.org)
  • Most of the bacteriocins from S. mutans characterized up to now belong to the group I lantibiotics. (asm.org)
  • However, the dynamics between bacteriocin producers, each lethal to its competitor, are largely unknown. (umass.edu)
  • In this study, we used in vitro, in vivo and in silico models to study competitive interactions between bacteriocin producers. (umass.edu)
  • Self-inhibition due to toxin activity in bacteriocin producers is avoided by co-expression of dedicated immunity genes. (frontiersin.org)
  • While most bacteriocin producers synthesize only one bacteriocin, it has been shown that several LAB produce multiple bacteriocins (2-3 bacteriocins). (nih.gov)
  • 1 Bacteriocins and bacteriocin producers have attracted significant interest from a fundamental and commercial perspective over the years. (biomedsearch.com)
  • To date, research has primarily focused on Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteriocins (termed pyocins) ( Michel-Briand and Baysse, 2002 ). (frontiersin.org)
  • First, naming bacteriocins by what they putatively kill would be more accurate if their killing spectrum were contiguous with genus or species designations. (wikipedia.org)
  • Furthermore, it has been shown in recent years that a set of bacteriocins produced by both Gram-positive and Gram-negative species can employ the membrane components of the mannose phosphotransferase system (Man-PTS) on sensitive cells as receptor molecules. (asm.org)
  • By combining bacteriocins and lysozyme, UHP at 30,000 psi for 1 min produced viability loss of 13.8 logs in Listeria monocytogenes Scott A and 6.3 logs in Salmonella typhimurium as compared to 2.8 logs for both species by UHP alone and 4.7 and 4.1 logs, respectively, by UHP + bacteriocins. (dtic.mil)
  • Using reporter-gene assays, we showed that each DNase bacteriocin is not only lethal to its opponent but, at lower doses, can also induce the expression of its opponent's toxin. (umass.edu)
  • However, IF is not constituting the bacteriocin activity of the bacterium, IF is only activating the transcription of the regulated class II bacteriocin gene(s). (nih.gov)
  • Microcins are less than 20 kDa in size, colicin-like bacteriocins are 20 to 90 kDa in size and tailocins or so called high molecular weight bacteriocins which are multi subunit bacteriocins that resemble the tails of bacteriophages. (wikipedia.org)
