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.

Vertebral osteomyelitis associated with Granulicatella adiacens. (3/11)

Granulicatella adiacens is a nutritionally variant streptococci. Only 3 cases of vertebral osteomyelitis due to these microorganisms have been reported. We experienced a 73-year-old male who consulted us due to fever and back pain of about 1-month duration. On examination, a presystolic murmur was heard in the apical region. Echocardiography showed prolapse of the mitral valve, but no vegetation was observed. MRI revealed osteomyelitis of lumbar vertebrae. As G. adiacens was detected in blood culture, it was determined as the cause of vertebral osteomyelitis, and combination antibiotics therapy was started. The condition improved, the patient underwent valvoplasty, and no trace of infective endocarditis was noted in the resected valve. All the previous cases had infection caused by G. adiacens and complicated with infective endocarditis. This is the first case without infective endocarditis. Vertebral osteomyelitis due to NVS is very rare. Since nutritionally variant streptococci do not grow in common culture media, and since the sensitivity of isolation by standard conventional biochemical methods is low, the condition may be misdiagnosed as blood-culture-negative vertebral osteomyelitis. Therefore, the possibility of nutritionally variant streptococci infection should be considered if a patient with vertebral osteomyelitis shows a positive Gram stain but negative blood cultures.  (+info)

Endocarditis caused by nutritionally variant streptococci: a case report and literature review. (6/11)

Infective endocarditis (IE) due to Abiotrophia and Granulicatella species, previously referred to as nutritionally variant streptococci (NVS), occurs rarely and is often associated with negative blood cultures. Rates of treatment failure, infection relapse and mortality are higher than those of endocarditis caused by other viridans streptococci. We report a case of endocarditis caused by Granulicatella adiacens in a young man with no risk factors, who was successfully treated with surgery and combination antimicrobial chemotherapy, and provide a literature review of endocarditis attributable to these rare species of fastidious gram-positive cocci which have proven exceedingly difficult to treat, with high rates of relapse and therapeutic failure despite in vitro effective antibiotic treatment regimens. Analysis of literature revealed a high prevalence (61%) of valvular heart predisposing conditions associated with endocarditis caused by NVS, such as congenital valvular heart disease or heart valve prosthesis. On the other hand, 39% of cases showed no evidence of risk factors. Combination antimicrobial chemotherapy with penicillin and gentamicin represents the antimicrobial treatment of choice in the management of patients with IE attributable to NVS. Heart valve replacement surgery should be considered in cases of hemodynamic derangement due to significant valve destruction.  (+info)

Zoocin A has a potential antibacterial properties and its use as an anti-cariogenic agent needs to be explored Objective: Dental caries is an infectious disease, caused mainly by mutans streptococci (MS). The aim of the present study is to evaluate the antimicrobial effect of zoocin A on the biofilm producing cariogenic oral bacteria compared with antibiotics. Methods: The samples were collected from dental caries and plaques of 130 cases referring to eight government dental clinics of Hamedan- Iran for treatment. The isolated bacteria were identified on the basis of morphological, biochemical and molecular methods. The antimicrobial effects of the zoocin A and antibiotics were compared. Results: Zoocin A showed varying degrees of inhibition on the most common oral biofilm producing bacteria we isolated which were identified as S. mutans, S. mitis, S. sanguinis, S. gordonii, Lactobacillus gasseri, and Granulicatella adiacens by PCR using16S rRNA gene sequence.

The urban sewer system is an important component of urban water infrastructure for sewage collection and transportation, and in-sewer transportation of sewage can cause multitudinous contaminant degradations which lead to formation of gaseous products. Although the greenhouse gases of methane and carbon dioxide have been confirmed to consist in the gaseous products, the mechanisms of greenhouse gas generation were unclear and the significances of greenhouse gases emission from sewers were generally underestimated. In this study, 3 years of monitoring was conducted to evaluate the greenhouse gases emission in 37-km-long urban sewer systems covering 13 km2. The results showed that the emission of carbon dioxide and methane was extensively existing in sewers, and especially, exhibited a characteristic of regional difference. In order to reveal the formation mechanism of carbon dioxide and methane in sewers, the metagenomic approach was utilized to analyze the annotated pathways and homologous bio-enzymes,
LOPARDO, Horacio A.. Abiotrophia and Granulicatella. Rev. argent. microbiol. [online]. 2006, vol.38, n.3, pp. 164-182. ISSN 1851-7617.. The nutritionally variant streptococci (NVS) belong to two genera: Abiotrophia and Granulicatella. NVS grow in culture media with 0.001% pyridoxal hydrochloride (PHC) and 0.1% cysteine hydrochloride (CysHC). These bacteria need the help of other organisms to grow on common solid media showing the effect known as satellitism. Both, satellitism and the pyrrolidonilarilamidase test are the key tests for suspecting the presence of NVS. They can grow as a faint haze on blood agar or chocolate agar prepared with the Columbia agar base without adding any other substance. The most frequently documented infections are endocarditis. Among extravascular infections, ocular infections predominate. For antimicrobial susceptibility testing, the Etest and dilution methods with the addition of 0.001% PHC can be used. Whichever the method there does not seem to be much ...

In investigating influenza in an immunodeficient child in China, in December 2010, we found that the influenza virus showed high sequence identity to that of swine. Serologic evidence indicated that viral persistence in pigs was the source of infection. Continued surveillance of pigs and systemic analysis of swine influenza isolates are needed.
The objective of the present study was to investigate the prevalence and severity of early childhood caries (ECC) and severe early childhood caries (S-ECC) in 3-year-old Lithuanian children. The impact of selected behavioral risk factors on the development of S-ECC was investigated. Material and methods. A total of 950 children were examined in kindergartens. Diagnosis of dental caries followed the WHO criteria. Questionnaires were delivered to mothers of the children with S-ECC and caries-free children. The questions were related to the childrens dietary habits, temperament, oral hygiene, and the use of fluoride toothpaste. Results. The prevalence of ECC was 50.6% with a mean dmft of 2.1 (SD, 0.1) and a mean dmfs of 3.4 (SD, 0.2). The prevalence of S-ECC was 6.5% with a mean dmft of 7.8 (SD, 0.1) and dmfs of 18.1 (SD, 0.6). A significantly higher percentage of children developed S-ECC when they were breast-fed for a period longer than one year, were sleeping with a bottle containing carbohydrates
Abstract The paper presents the principle of a method to measure infiltration rates in sewer systems based on the use of oxygen isotopes and its application in Lyon (France). Investigations in the urban area of Lyon benefit from the isotopic differences between underground waters originating from the two rivers Rhône and Saône and from their associated alluvial aquifers. The oxygen isotopic composition of the Rhône water is roughly 3 ‰ lighter than that of the Saône river, due to the large differences in the mean altitude and topographic situation of their catchments. Large amounts of water are pumped from the Rhône aquifer for drinking water supply. As a consequence, this difference in the oxygen isotopic composition between wastewater and local groundwater can be used to evaluate infiltration in sewers in some parts of the city. The results obtained in a case study allow to evaluate the reliability and the uncertainties of this method. ...
The Bay Areas worst-polluting sewer agencies are spilling less sewage into San Francisco Bay, thanks to Baykeepers Sick of Sewage campaign.. Sewage pollution has been one of the most serious threats to the Bays health due to crumbling Bay Area sewer infrastructure. During the rainy season, millions of gallons of partially treated and raw sewage have spilled directly into the Bay or into storm drains, creeks, rivers, and sloughs that empty into the Bay.. But now, Baykeepers legal actions have compelled sewage agencies serving 20 Bay Area cities to make upgrades and repairs to stop sewage spills. We have legally-binding agreements requiring these sewer systems to replace miles of cracked pipes, boost inspections, and improve their infrastructure, on a year-by-year timetable.. Baykeeper recently reviewed these sewer agencies progress in 2012, and several are ahead of their required timetables for making upgrades. One agency, serving South San Francisco, has fixed its sewage pollution problem ...
The non-hematologic malignancies included esophageal cancer (2) and bladder cancer (1). Seven patients (54%) were neutropenic (defined as Absolute Neutrophil Count , 1500 cells/uL) with an average duration of 14 days. The median age was 60 years. There was no gender predilection. Seven patients had mucositis at the time of diagnosis either due to chemotherapy or graft versus host disease. One patient had gingivitis with a dental abscess. None of the patients developed infective endocarditis. Most patients were on empiric antimicrobial therapy with ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin or piperacillin/tazobactam at the time of breakthrough bacteremia. Almost all patients received vancomycin as definitive treatment. All the patients had transient bacteremia with an average duration of positive blood cultures of 1 day. The 30-day mortality rate was 16.67%. Mortality was not attributable to NVS bacteremia ...

Every mammal on the planet is colonized with E. coli ( 1 ), as well as cold-blooded animals (e.g., fish) at an appropriately warm temperature ( 2 ). We estimate there are 1021 E. coli cells in the human population alone. E. coli is frequently the first bacterium to colonize human infants and is a lifelong colonizer of adults ( 3 ). E. coli is arguably the best understood of all model organisms ( 4 ). Yet the essence of how E. coli colonizes and/or causes disease is still not completely understood. Certainly, innate immunity, adaptive immunity, and bacterial cell-to-cell communication play important roles in modulating the populations of the 500-1000 different commensal species in the intestine ( 5 - 11 ); however, these topics will not be a focus of this chapter. We have reviewed the mucus layer as habitat for E. coli to colonize the intestine, aspects of E. coli physiology that enable its success, and the model systems employed for colonization research ( 12 - 14 ). Here, we focus on E. coli metabolism

Calling intestinal eukaryotic microbes symbionts-which encompasses mutualists, commensals, and parasites-rather than parasites conveys the diverse interactions they have with hosts above and beyond pathogenicity.There is a need to change therapeutic strategies to target elimination only of demonstrably pathogenic species-the true parasites-from host organisms, while avoiding removal of the harmless or commensal species.Now is the right time to determine the diversity of eukaryotic microbes in the healthy human population using NGS and to disentangle their relationships with bacterial communities.Characterizing eukaryotic microbes will enable us to associate the occurrence or absence of various eukaryotic microbes with human diseases.With the aim to bring some of the lost intestinal eukaryotes back, controlled colonization by commensal eukaryotes in human volunteers should be performed to confirm the predicted positive impact on diversification of human gut microbiome.If successful, these ...
The genus Neisseria contains many species. Most of them are part of the normal flora of humans and animals; only two are human pathogens: Neisseria gonorrhoeae, which causes a sexually transmitted disease of the same name, and Neisseria meningitidis, which causes meningitis. These pathogens often behave like their related commensal cousins in that they establish asymptomatic infection at high frequency. This commensal-like trait was likely inherited by the pathogens as they evolved from commensal species. Supporting this idea is the observation that many N. gonorrhoeae and N. meningiditis genes that mediate pathogen interactions with their hosts are also in the commensals. A major goal of our lab is to determine how commensal and pathogenic Neisseria differentially regulate these host interaction genes, and how these regulatory events might affect their lifecycle in the host.. Another goal of our lab is to use our new mouse model for Neisseria colonization, persistence, and asymptomatic ...

Probiotics are derived from traditional fermented foods, from beneficial commensals or from the environment. They act through diverse mechanisms affecting the composition or function of the commensal microbiota and by altering host epithelial and immunological responses. Certain probiotic interventions have shown promise in selected clinical conditions where aberrant microbiota have been reported, such as atopic dermatitis, necrotising enterocolitis, pouchitis and possibly irritable bowel syndrome. However, no studies have been conducted that can causally link clinical improvements to probiotic-induced microbiota changes. Whether a disease-prone microbiota pattern can be remodelled to a more robust, resilient and disease-free state by probiotic administration remains a key unanswered question. Progress in this area will be facilitated by: optimising strain, dose and product formulations, including protective commensal species; matching these formulations with selectively responsive ...
Our laboratory is interested in identifying specific examples of immunomodulatory interactions between commensals and the host as well as the underlying mechanisms. In order to study the effects of individual members of the gut microbiota on immune homeostasis in vivo, we are studying germ-free animals colonized with defined bacterial species. Using this system, we recently showed that different components of the intestinal microbiota regulate the balance between pro-inflammatory Th17 cells and regulatory T cells (Treg) in the small intestinal lamina propria. Th17 cells, which provide protection from extracellular pathogens at mucosal surfaces and are important mediators of pathogenicity in multiple models of autoimmune inflammation, were induced by certain components of the gut microbiota. We identified segmented filamentous bacteria (SFB) as one of these components. SFB-mediated induction of Th17 cells represents an example of a commensal species that specifically induces an effector T cell ...

An exploration of early childhood caries prevalence, malnutrition and the associated risk factors in rural and urban Nepal.. Under the menorship of Dr. Karen Sokal Gutierrez. Untreated tooth decay, also known as caries, is the most prevalent disease condition in the world, and it is the fourth most expensive disease to treat. Severe early childhood caries (s-ECC) is any sign of smooth-surface caries in children younger than three years of age or a DMFT score greater than four, five, or six in children aged three, four, or five respectively, on primary maxillary anterior teeth and these diagnoses occurs disproportionately in young children from low-income families who may either have an economic disadvantage, or a geographic inability to access dental care. Little published scientific data exists on oral health in Nepalese children; The first and only national oral health survey was conducted in 2014, and concluded that 58% of five to six year olds suffer from dental caries, making it the most ...
Pneumococci display large zinc metalloproteinases on the surface, including the IgA protease, which cleaves human IgA1 in the hinge region, the ZmpC proteinase, which cleaves human matrix metalloproteinase 9 (MMP-9), and two other proteinases, ZmpB and ZmpD, whose substrates have not yet been identified. Surface metalloproteinases are antigenic and have been linked to virulence. The genes encoding these proteinases reside in three distinct loci: two loci specific for zmpB and zmpC, and a third, the iga locus, containing iga and zmpD. Data obtained by this and other groups have shown that pneumococcal metalloproteinase genes are transcribed and yield mature and enzymatically active proteins. Since the presence of the four proteinase genes is variable in the pneumococcal strains whose genomes have been sequenced, the presence of these genes in a collection of 218 pneumococcal isolates, mostly from invasive disease, was investigated. The data showed that zmpB and iga were present in all the isolates

Widespread disposal of landfill leachate to municipal sewer infrastructure in the United States calls for an improved understanding of the relative organic-chemical contributions to the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) waste stream and associated surface-water discharge to receptors in the environment. Landfill leachate, WWTP influent, and WWTP effluent samples were collected from three landfill-WWTP systems and compared with analogous influent and effluent samples from two WWTPs that did not receive leachate. Samples were analyzed for 73 per-/poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), 109 pharmaceuticals, and 21 hormones and related compounds. PFAS were detected more frequently in leachate (92%) than in influent (55%). Total PFAS concentrations in leachate (93,100 ng/L) were more than ten times higher than in influent (6,950 ng/L), and effluent samples (3,730 ng/L). Concentrations of bisphenol A; the nonprescription pharmaceuticals cotinine, lidocaine, nicotine; and the prescription pharmaceuticals
Severe early childhood caries (ECC), while strongly associated with Streptococcus mutans using selective detection (culture, PCR), has also been associated with a widely diverse microbiota using molecular cloning approaches. The aim of this study was to evaluate the microbiota of severe ECC using anaerobic culture. The microbial composition of dental plaque from 42 severe ECC children was compared with that of 40 caries-free children. Bacterial samples were cultured anaerobically on blood and acid (pH 5) agars. Isolates were purified, and partial sequences for the 16S rRNA gene were obtained from 5,608 isolates. Sequence-based analysis of the 16S rRNA isolate libraries from blood and acid agars of severe ECC and caries-free children had ,90% population coverage, with greater diversity occurring in the blood isolate library. Isolate sequences were compared with taxon sequences in the Human Oral Microbiome Database (HOMD), and 198 HOMD taxa were identified, including 45 previously uncultivated ...

Timely maintenance of sewers is essential to preventing reduced functionality and breakdown of the systems. Due to the high costs associated with inspecting a sewer system, substantial research has focused on sewer deterioration modeling and identification of the most useful features. However, there is a lack of consensus in the findings. This study investigates how the feature importance depends on the definition of bad pipes and how the feature importance changes between utilities with similar data bases. A dataset containing 318,457 pipes from 35 utilities with a condition state (CS) ranging from one to four was used. The dataset was cleaned, and a backward step analysis (BSA) was applied to two ways of binarizing the CS. Additionally, a BSA was applied for each utility with ≥100 pipes in CS four. The results showed that a selective definition of bad pipes reduced the performance and changed the order of which features contributed the most. In each case, either year of construction, age,

Carnobacterium maltaromaticum is a non starter lactic acid bacterium (NSLAB) frequently colonizing food products, i.e. meat, sea and dairy food. This psychrophilic bacterium can grow at temperature as low as 2-4?C in meat and cheese. The beneficial effect of this bacterium on ripened soft cheese allowed to propose this bacterium as adjunct cultures for soft and semihard cheese technologies. C. maltaromaticum has been extensively studied as protective cultures, and some strains are thus able to inhibit the growth of Listeria monocytogenes by producing bacteriocins. For these reasons, C. maltaromaticum is Generally Recognized As Safe in the USA and is considered as a microorganism with technological beneficial use in EU ...

The effects of streptomycin (STM) on the development of antibiotic resistance in an aerobic-biofilm reactor was explored by stepwise increases in STM doses (0-50 mg L−1), over a period of 618 days. Totally 191 bacterial isolates affiliated with 90 different species were harvested from the reactor exposed to six STM exposures. Gammaproteobacteria (20-31.8%), Bacilli (20-35.7%), Betaproteobacteria (4.5-21%) and Actinobacteria (0-18.2%) were dominant, and their diversity was not affected over the whole period. Thirteen dominant isolates from each STM exposures (78 isolates) were applied to determine their resistance prevalence against eight classes of antibiotics. Increased STM resistance (53.8-69.2%) and multi-drug resistance (MDR) (46.2-61.5%) were observed in the STM exposures (0.1-50 mg L−1), compared to exposure without STM (15.3 and 0%, respectively). Based on their variable minimum inhibitory concentration results, 40 differentiated isolates from various STM exposures were selected to check the
