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.

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.

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.

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.

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 bacteriocin - Wikipedia
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 ...
The Group I Strain of Streptococcus mutans, UA140, Produces Both the Lantibiotic Mutacin I and a Nonlantibiotic Bacteriocin,...
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
Bacteriocins | Riley Lab
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 ...

Bacteriocins are multi-protein assemblies that bear striking resemblance to bacteriophage (virus) tails. Bacteriocins are an extracellular contractile injection system that kill closely related bacteria by puncturing their cell membrane. Mounting evidence suggests that besides interbacterial competition, bacteriocins also mediate interactions between bacteria and diverse eukaryotic hosts by assembling extracellular hexagonal-bacteriocin arrays composed of numerous bacteriocin particles. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic bacterial pathogen that produces bacteriocins called R2 pyocins which lyse susceptible bacteria. Based on homology to other contractile injection systems, we hypothesize that P. aeruginosa produces bacteriocin arrays that modulate host responses during infection. We have developed a method to quantify R2 pyocins utilizing the lysis of susceptible strains of P. aeruginosa. We are currently applying this quantification method to optimize the production and purification of pyocins
Effect of Hydrostatic Pressure and Electroporation on Bactericidal Efficiency in Combination with Bacteriocins and Lysozyme....
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
Genetic Characterization and Heterologous Expression of Brochocin-C, an Antibotulinal, Two-Peptide Bacteriocin Produced by...
Brochocin-C is a two-peptide class IIb bacteriocin (18) with a broad spectrum that compares favorably with the antibacterial spectrum of nisin, inhibiting the outgrowth of Bacillus andClostridium spores, including spores of C. botulinum. This is exceptional because the structure of brochocin-C is not comparable to that of nisin. Nisin does not require a receptor to permeabilize the membranes of sensitive cells, and it inhibits gram-negative bacteria pretreated with EDTA (32). Brochocin-C was also active against E. coli and S. choleraesuis cells treated with EDTA, although the degree of inhibition that we observed for nisin and brochocin-C was less than that reported for nisin by Stevens et al. (32). This suggests that brochocin-C also does not require a receptor to be active. Plasmid pJKM64 is lethal in E. coli when Sec-dependent production of brochocin-C is introduced, and this provides further evidence that brochocin-C is active in E. coli and does not need a receptor. Thermophilin 13 is a ...

Anticancer and antimicrobial potential of enterocin 12a from Enterococcus faecium | SpringerLink
Increase in the number of infections caused by Gram-negative bacteria in neutropenic cancer patients has prompted the search for novel therapeutic agents having dual anticancer and antimicrobial properties. Bacteriocins are cationic proteins of prokaryotic origin that have emerged as one of the most promising alternative antimicrobial agents with applications as food preservatives and therapeutic agents. Apart from their antimicrobial activities, bacteriocins are also being explored for their anticancer potential. In this study, a broad-spectrum, cell membrane-permeabilizing enterocin with a molecular weight of 65 kDa was purified and characterized from the culture supernatant of vaginal Enterococcus faecium 12a. Enterocin 12a inhibited multidrug-resistant strains of various Gram-negative pathogens such as Salmonella enterica, Shigella flexneri, Vibrio cholerae, Escherichia coli and Gram-positive, Listeria monocytogenes, but had no activities against different strains of gut lactobacilli.

Frontiers | Lectin-Like Bacteriocins | Microbiology
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
Rational design of syn-safencin, a novel linear antimicrobial peptide derived from the circular bacteriocin safencin AS-48 |...
Bacteriocins hold unprecedented promise as a largely untapped source of antibiotic alternatives in the age of multidrug resistance. Here, we describe the first approach to systematically design variants of a novel AS-48 bacteriocin homologue, which we have termed safencin AS-48, from Bacillus safensis, to gain insights into engineering improved activity of bacteriocins. A library of synthetic peptides in which systematic amino acid substitutions to vary the periodicity and abundance of polar, acidic, aliphatic, and hydrophobic residues were generated for a total of 96 novel peptide variants of a single bacteriocin candidate. Using this method, we identified nine synthetic safencin (syn-safencin) variants with broad and potent antimicrobial activities with minimal inhibitory concentrations (MIC) as low as 250 nM against E. coli, P. aeruginosa, X. axonopodis, and S. pyogenes with minimal cytotoxicity to mammalian cells. It is anticipated that the strategies we have developed will serve as general guides

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 preservative potentials of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) recovered from some Nigerian traditional fermented foods were assessed by inoculating 0.1 ml aliquots of suitable dilutions of the food samples on De Man Rogosa Sharpe (MRS) agar fortified with 50mg of nystatin. The isolates were assessed for their ability to produce bacteriocin using Agar Well Diffusion assay method. By using (GTG)5-PCR and 16s rDNA sequencing tools, two bacteriocin-producing LAB namely Lactobacillus tucceti CECT 5920 and Lactobacillus mindensis TMW were identified. Both LAB isolates had equal level of bacteriocin activity. Studies on inhibitory activity of partially purified bacteriocin extracts showed that temperature of 35°C had maximum effect on bacteriocin antimicrobial activity of L. tucceti CECT 5920 against Staphylococcus aureus NCTC 8325 and Escherichia coli 0157:H7, while pH had same effects on both LAB isolates against the test bacteria. Maximum tolerance of acidic medium was exhibited by both LAB isolates at ...
Regulation of Bacteriocin Production in Streptococcus mutans by the Quorum-Sensing System Required for Development of Genetic...
Two-component signal transduction systems that respond to the presence of inducer peptide pheromones are known to regulate a variety of processes: bacteriocin production, competence for transformation, biofilm formation, and virulence (30). The results presented here and those from previous studies (14, 15) show that S. mutans uses one and the same TCSTS to control at least three of these at first sight unrelated processes. Mutants in comA, comC, and comDE are competence deficient (14), form biofilms that are different from those formed by wild-type strains (15), and do not produce bacteriocins (this study; 32, 36).. Unlike competence, which exhibits an optimum during a short interval of the exponential phase (data not shown) (19, 23), expression of nlmAB′-lacZ was lowest in this period but reached a maximum in the stationary phase. Since both activities are controlled by the same regulatory system, the question arises as to how this differential regulation is established. The key to the ...
Consortium receives funding to discover, develop and manufacture new antibiotics - Scienmag: Latest Science and Health News
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, ...

The sequence analysis of the 7383 bp plasmid pCIZ2 from |i|Enterococcus faecium|/i| L50 enabled the identification of a DNA region involved in its replication. The structural organization of the pCIZ2 replication region is highly similar to those of well-known theta-replicating plasmids. It contains an untranslated region, the putative replication origin (|i|ori|/i|), constituted by two sets of direct repeats of 12 and 22 bp (iterons), and followed by three open-reading frames (|i|orf8|/i| to |i|orf10|/i|). |i|orf8|/i| encodes the replication initiation protein (RepE). The transcriptional start site of the replication locus was identified 13 nucleotides upstream of the |i|repE|/i| start codon. A two-dimensional agarose gel electrophoresis analysis revealed pCIZ2 intermediates profile typical of the theta-type replication mechanism. Subcloning of different DNA fragments of the pCIZ2 replication region in |i|Escherichia coli|/i| and, subsequently, in the plasmidless |i|E. faecium|/i| L50/14-2 allowed the
Determining the Virulence Properties of Escherichia coli ST131 Containing Bacteriocin-Encoding Plasmids Using Short- and Long...
Escherichia coli ST131 is a clinical challenge due to its multidrug resistant profile and successful global spread. They are often associated with complicated infections, particularly urinary tract infections (UTIs). Bacteriocins play an important role to outcompete other microorganisms present in the human gut. Here, we characterized bacteriocin-encoding plasmids found in ST131 isolates of patients suffering from a UTI using both short- and long-read sequencing. Colicins Ia, Ib and E1, and microcin V, were identified among plasmids that also contained resistance and virulence genes. To investigate if the potential transmission range of the colicin E1 plasmid is influenced by the presence of a resistance gene, we constructed a strain containing a plasmid which had both the colicin E1 and blaCMY-2 genes. No difference in transmission range was found between transformant and wild-type strains. However, a statistically significantly difference was found in adhesion and invasion ability. ...

Abstract: How ultra-high-affinity protein protein interactions retain high specificity is still poorly understood. The interaction between colicin DNase domains and their inhibitory immunity (Im) proteins is an ultra-high-affinity interaction that is essential for the neutralisation of endogenous DNase catalytic activity and for protection against exogenous DNase bacteriocins. The colicin DNase-Im interaction is a model system for the study of high-affinity protein protein interactions. However, despite the fact that closely related colicin-like bacteriocins are widely produced by Gram-negative bacteria, this interaction has only been studied using colicins from Escherichia coli. In this work, we present the first crystal structures of two pyocin DNase-Im complexes from Pseudomonas aeruginosa, pyocin S2 DNase-ImS2 and pyocin AP41 DNase-ImAP41. These structures represent divergent DNase Im subfamilies and are important in extending our understanding of protein protein interactions for this ...

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 ...
Antibacterial Activity of Lactic Acid Bacteria to Improve Shelf Life of Raw Meat - 文献詳細 - Ceek.jp Altmetrics
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.

Genetical identification of intibacterial agents producing microorganisms and analysis of bacteriocins and killer toxins...
Research on naturally occurring antibacterial agents has attracted considerable scientific attention worldwide over the last twenty years. Instead of chemical food additives, it is possible to use natural antimicrobials released by lactic acid bacteria and yeast. The pure antimicrobials produced by microorganisms or the microorganisms that produce these substances can be used for food bio-preservation or as probiotics in medicine and veterinary medicine. Searching for lactic acid bacteria and yeast in natural foods and researching their application possibilities are relevant worldwide. Depending on the environment, microorganisms adapt, resulting in different strains that can produce antibacterial substances with different properties. Such substances are bacteriocins, produced by lactic acid bacteria and killer toxins, produced by yeast [1, 2]. The aim of this work is genotyping of microorganisms, isolated from cottage cheese, obtained from local milk products producers, which shows ...

Whats the matter with M.D.s?
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 ...

IMMUNITY FACTORS IN PNEUMOCOCCUS INFECTION IN THE DOG | JEM
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 ...

Pharmaceuticals | Free Full-Text | Lysostaphin: A Staphylococcal Bacteriolysin with Potential Clinical Applications
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

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 . Anastasiadou et al.  presented kinetic studies of production of pediocin SA-1 from P. acidilactici and pediocin SM-1 from P. pentosaceus  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 ...

What will be the future antibiotics | ORDO NEWS
ORDO NEWS) - Scientists from the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry. MM Shemyakina and Yu. A. Ovchinnikov of the Russian Academy of Sciences, MIPT and HSE studied the interaction of a known natural antibiotic with its target using molecular modeling. These data will help to develop effective new types of antibiotics.. The overuse of antibiotics leads to the rapid development of bacterial resistance, which poses a threat to human health around the world. Therefore, the search and development of new classes of antibacterial agents with a mode of action that is not used today is extremely relevant. In microbiology, small antimicrobial proteins called lantibiotics are known to have bactericidal potential.. Nisin, the best studied lantibiotic, was discovered even before Alexander Flemings discovery of penicillin. Nisin has never been used in clinical practice due to instability in the human body. However, it has been widely used as a food preservative since 1953 without any signs of developing ...
Fighting biofilms with lantibiotics and other groups of bacteriocins
Biofilms are sessile communities of bacteria typically embedded in an extracellular polymeric matrix. Bacterial cells embedded in biofilms are inherently recalcitrant to antimicrobials, compared to cells existing in a planktonic state, and are notoriously difficult to eradicate once formed. Avenues to tackle biofilms thus far have largely focussed on attempting to disrupt the initial stages of biofilm formation, including adhesion and maturation of the biofilm. Such an approach is advantageous as the concentrations required to inhibit formation of biofilms are generally much lower than removing a fully established biofilm. The crisis of antibiotic resistance in clinical settings worldwide has been further exacerbated by the ability of certain pathogenic bacteria to form biofilms. Perhaps the most notorious biofilm formers described from a clinical viewpoint have been methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Staphylococcus epidermidis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Gardnerella vaginalis and ...

Structural Basis for Type VI Secretion Effector Recognition by a Cognate Immunity Protein
The type VI secretion system (T6SS) has emerged as an important mediator of interbacterial interactions. A T6SS from Pseudomonas aeruginosa targets at least three effector proteins, \(\underline t\)ype VI \(\underline s\)ecretion \(\underline e\)xported 1-3 (Tse1-3), to recipient Gram-negative cells. The Tse2 protein is a cytoplasmic effector that acts as a potent inhibitor of target cell proliferation, thus providing a pronounced fitness advantage for P. aeruginosa donor cells. P. aeruginosa utilizes a dedicated immunity protein, \(\underline t\)ype VI \(\underline s\)ecretion \(\underline i\)mmunity 2 (Tsi2), to protect against endogenous and intercellularly-transferred Tse2. Here we show that Tse2 delivered by the T6SS efficiently induces quiescence, not death, within recipient cells. We demonstrate that despite direct interaction of Tsi2 and Tse2 in the cytoplasm, Tsi2 is dispensable for targeting the toxin to the secretory apparatus. To gain insights into the molecular basis of Tse2 ...
Nucleotide polymorphism in microcin V plasmids. | Riley Lab
DNA sequence polymorphism was determined for the microcin V gene cluster encoded on the microcin V plasmids of 12 natural isolates of Escherichia coli. These microcin V gene clusters are similar in DNA sequence, with only 10 of the 683 bp polymorphic. Further, the levels and patterns of microcin V gene cluster polymorphism differ from those of a chromosomal region, trpORF2, sequenced from each of the host isolates. These contrasting levels and patterns of polymorphism suggest that the microcin V gene cluster has experienced an evolutionary history different from that of the host ...

A Comparison of Reversible Versus Irreversible Protein Glutathionylati by Danyelle M. Townsend, Volodymyr I. Lushchak et al.
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.

- Bacteriocin producers have been shown to competitively exclude sensitive, nonproducing strains. (umass.edu)
- Two Escherichia coli strains were generated, each carrying a DNA-degrading bacteriocin (colicins E2 and E7). (umass.edu)
- The transformed indicator strains, each containing one of the immunity genes, were tested for sensitivity towards seven different purified bacteriocins (curvacin A, enterocin A, enterocin P, leucocin A, leucocin C, pediocin PA-1 and sakacin P). Cross-immunity was observed almost exclusively in situations where either the bacteriocins or the immunity proteins belonged to the same sequence-based subgroup. (nih.gov)
- My career as a "bioengineer" of microbes took flight 11 years ago when I was recruited by my former mentors, and now collaborators, Colin Hill and Paul Ross to use genetic approaches to manipulate bacteriocin producing strains. (biomedsearch.com)
- However, other strains did not show activity against the indicator strains despite the presence of a bacteriocin cluster, indicating that other factors are required for bacteriocin activity. (asm.org)
- The production of bacteriocins has been related to the producer's ability to colonize a host more efficiently due the ability of these peptides to eliminate competitor strains, which often include other species. (asm.org)
