Its species are pathogenic, causing urinary tract infections and are also considered secondary invaders, causing septic lesions at other sites of the body.Klebsiella: A genus of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria whose organisms arrange singly, in pairs, or short chains. This genus is commonly found in the intestinal tract and is an opportunistic pathogen that can give rise to bacteremia, pneumonia, urinary tract and several other types of human infection.Klebsiella pneumoniae: Gram-negative, non-motile, capsulated, gas-producing rods found widely in nature and associated with urinary and respiratory infections in humans.Bacteria: 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).

Development of resistance during antimicrobial therapy caused by insertion sequence interruption of porin genes. (1/339)

We have demonstrated by using an in vitro approach that interruption of the OmpK36 porin gene by insertion sequences (ISs) is a common type of mutation that causes loss of porin expression and increased resistance to cefoxitin in Klebsiella pneumoniae. This mechanism also operates in vivo: of 13 porin-deficient cefoxitin-resistant clinical isolates of K. pneumoniae, 4 presented ISs in their ompK36 gene.  (+info)

Carbapenem resistance in Escherichia coli associated with plasmid-determined CMY-4 beta-lactamase production and loss of an outer membrane protein. (2/339)

Three cefoxitin-resistant Escherichia coli isolates from stool specimens of a patient with leukemia were either resistant, intermediate, or sensitive to imipenem. Conjugation experiments showed that cefoxitin resistance, but not imipenem resistance, was transferable. All isolates were shown by isoelectric focusing to produce two beta-lactamases with isoelectric points of 5.4 (TEM-1, confirmed by sequencing of a PCR product) and >8.5 (consistent with a class C beta-lactamase). The gene coding for the unknown beta-lactamase was cloned and sequenced and revealed an enzyme which had 99.9% sequence identity with the plasmid-determined class C beta-lactamase CMY-2. The cloned beta-lactamase gene differed from blaCMY-2 at one nucleotide position that resulted in an amino acid change, tryptophan to arginine at position 221. We propose that this enzyme be designated CMY-4. Both the imipenem-resistant and -intermediate isolates lacked a 38-kDa outer membrane protein (OMP) that was present in the imipenem-sensitive isolate. The lack of an OMP alone did not explain the difference in carbapenem susceptibilities observed. However, measurement of beta-lactamase activities (including measurements under conditions where TEM-1 beta-lactamase was inhibited) indicated that the imipenem-intermediate isolate expressed six- to eightfold less beta-lactamase than did the other isolates. This study illustrates that carbapenem resistance in E. coli can arise from high-level expression of plasmid-mediated class C beta-lactamase combined with an OMP deficiency. Furthermore, in the presence of an OMP deficiency, the level of expression of a plasmid-mediated class C beta-lactamase is an important factor in determining whether E. coli isolates are fully resistant to carbapenems.  (+info)

Comparison of the in vitro activity of Bay k 4999 and piperacillin, two new antipseudomonal broad-spectrum penicillins, with other beta-lactam drugs. (3/339)

Bay k 4999 and piperacillin, two new substituted ampicillins, were compared with other beta-lactam antibiotics, including carbenicillin, azlocillin, mezlocillin, benzylpenicillin, ampicillin, and cefoxitin, against a wide range of gram-positive and -negative organisms. Bay k 4999 and piperacillin were extremely active against Pseudomonas aeruginosa (50% inhibited by 2 mug/ml), being about 16-fold more active than carbenicillin. Bay k 4999 was the most active drug against Escherichia coli (50% inhibited by 0.5 mug/ml) and Klebsiella spp. (50% inhibited by 2 mug/ml). Piperacillin and Bay k 4999 were equally active against Proteus spp., and piperacillin had high activity against Bacteroides fragilis (50% inhibited by between 1 and 2 mug/ml).  (+info)

Multisite reproducibility of results obtained by the broth microdilution method for susceptibility testing of Mycobacterium abscessus, Mycobacterium chelonae, and Mycobacterium fortuitum. (4/339)

A multicenter study was conducted to assess the interlaboratory reproducibility of broth microdilution testing of the more common rapidly growing pathogenic mycobacteria. Ten isolates (four Mycobacterium fortuitum group, three Mycobacterium abscessus, and three Mycobacterium chelonae isolates) were tested against amikacin, cefoxitin, ciprofloxacin, clarithromycin, doxycycline, imipenem, sulfamethoxazole, and tobramycin (M. chelonae only) in four laboratories. At each site, isolates were tested three times on each of three separate days (nine testing events per isolate) with a common lot of microdilution trays. Agreement among MICs (i.e., mode +/- 1 twofold dilution) varied considerably for the different drug-isolate combinations and overall was best for cefoxitin (91.7 and 97.2% for one isolate each and 100% for all others), followed by doxycycline, amikacin, and ciprofloxacin. Agreement based on the interpretive category, using currently suggested breakpoints, also varied and overall was best for doxycycline (97.2% for one isolate and 100% for the rest), followed by ciprofloxacin and clarithromycin. Reproducibility among MICs and agreement by interpretive category was most variable for imipenem. Based on results reported from the individual sites, it appears that inexperience contributed significantly to the wide range of MICs of several drugs, especially clarithromycin, ciprofloxacin, and sulfamethoxazole. New interpretive guidelines are presented for the testing of M. fortuitum against clarithromycin; M. abscessus and M. chelonae against the aminoglycosides; and all three species against cefoxitin, doxycycline, and imipenem.  (+info)

Survey of extended-spectrum beta-lactamases in clinical isolates of Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae: prevalence of TEM-52 in Korea. (5/339)

Two hundred ninety isolates of Escherichia coli were investigated for the production of extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs). Fourteen (4.8%) of the 290 strains were found to produce ESBLs. Each of the 14 strains produced one or two ESBLs, as follows: 10 strains produced TEM-52, 1 strain produced SHV-2a, 1 strain produced SHV-12, 1 strain produced a CMY-1-like enzyme, and 1 strain expressed SHV-2a and a CMY-1-like enzyme. Another two strains for which the MICs of ceftazidime and cefoxitin were high, were probable AmpC enzyme hyperproducers. Because of the high prevalence of TEM-52 in E. coli isolates, we further investigated the TEM-type ESBLs produced by Klebsiella pneumoniae in order to observe the distribution of TEM-52 enzymes among Enterobacteriaceae in Korea. All TEM enzymes produced by 12 strains of K. pneumoniae were identified as TEM-52. To evaluate the genetic relatedness among the organisms, ribotyping of TEM-52-producing E. coli and K. pneumoniae was performed. The ribotyping profiles of the organisms showed similar but clearly different patterns. In conclusion, TEM-52 is the most prevalent TEM-type ESBL in Korea.  (+info)

In-vitro susceptibilities of species of the Bacteroides fragilis group to newer beta-lactam agents. (6/339)

The in-vitro activities of imipenem and four beta-lactam-beta-lactamase inhibitor combinations were tested against 816 strains of the Bacteroides fragilis group, and compared with other anti-anaerobic agents. None of the strains was resistant to metronidazole, and only one was resistant to chloramphenicol. Mezlocillin and piperacillin were moderately active, while clindamycin was the least active. Rates of resistance varied between various species. The new beta-lactam agents tested showed excellent activity; piperacillin-tazobactam and imipenem were the most active. The emergence of strains that are resistant to these agents, observed in this study, suggests there is a need to perform periodic antimicrobial susceptibility tests.  (+info)

Occurrence and detection of AmpC beta-lactamases among Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Proteus mirabilis isolates at a veterans medical center. (7/339)

AmpC beta-lactamases are cephalosporinases that confer resistance to a wide variety of beta-lactam drugs and that may thereby create serious therapeutic problems. Although reported with increasing frequency, the true rate of occurrence of AmpC beta-lactamases in Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Proteus mirabilis remains unknown. We tested a total of 1,286 consecutive, nonrepeat isolates of these three species and found that, overall, 45 (3.5%) yielded a cefoxitin zone diameter less than 18 mm (screen positive) and that 16 (1.2%) demonstrated AmpC bands by isoelectric focusing. Based on the species, of 683 E. coli, 371 K. pneumoniae, and 232 P. mirabilis isolates tested, 13 (1.9%), 28 (7.6%), and 4 (1.7%), respectively, demonstrated decreased zone diameters and 11 (1.6%), 4 (1.1%), and 1 (0.4%), respectively, demonstrated AmpC bands. Cefoxitin resistance was transferred for all but 8 (E. coli) of the 16 AmpC producers. We also describe a three-dimensional extract test, which was used to detect phenotypically isolates that harbor AmpC beta-lactamase. Of the 45 cefoxitin-resistant isolates, the three-dimensional extract test accurately identified all 16 AmpC producers and 28 of 29 (97%) isolates as non-AmpC producers. Interestingly, most (86%) isolates in the latter group were K. pneumoniae isolates. These data confirm that, at our institution, E. coli, K. pneumoniae, and P. mirabilis harbor plasmid-mediated AmpC enzymes.  (+info)

Susceptibility of clinical isolates of Bacteroides fragilis group strains to cefoxitin, cefoperazone and ticarcillin/clavulanate. (8/339)

A total of 40 strains of the B. fragilis group was isolated from clinical specimens in two hospital centers in Fortaleza from 1993 to 1997. The most frequently isolated species was Bacteroides fragilis (19 strains) and most isolates came from intra-abdominal and wound infections. The susceptibility profile was traced for cefoxitin, cefoperazone and ticarcillin-clavulanate by using the agar dilution reference method. All isolates were susceptible to ticarcillin-clavulanate (128/2 microg/ml). Resistance rates of 15 and 70% were detected to cefoxitin (64 microg/ml) and cefoperazone (64 microg/ml), respectively. Such regional results permit a better orientation in choosing this group of antibiotics for prophylaxis and therapy especially in relation to cefoxitin, which is frequently used in the hospital centers studied.  (+info)

*Benzylpenicillin

The production of benzylpenicillin involves fermentation, recovery and purification of the penicillin.[10] The fermentation process of the production of benzylpencillin is about obtaining the product. The presence of the product in solution inhibits the reaction and reduces the product rate and yield. Thus, in order to obtain the most product and increase the rate of reaction the product, would be continuously extracted out.[11] This is done by having the mold with either glucose, sucrose, lactose, startch, or detrin, nitrate, ammonium salt, corn steep liquor, peptone, meat or yeast extract, and little amounts of inorganic salts.[12] The recovery of the benzylpencillin is the most important part of the production process because it affects the purification steps if done wrong.[10] There are many different types of techniques to recover benzyl penicillin, aqueous two-phase extraction, liquid membrane extraction, microfiltration technique, and solvent subulation[10] Extraction is more commonly ...

*Meropenem

... , sold under the brandname Merrem among others, is a broad-spectrum antibiotic used to treat a variety of bacterial infections.[1] Some of these include meningitis, intra-abdominal infection, pneumonia, sepsis, and anthrax.[1] It is given by injection into a vein.[1] Common side effects include nausea, diarrhea, constipation, headache, rash, and pain at the site of injection.[1] Serious side effects include Clostridium difficile infection, seizures, and allergic reactions including anaphylaxis.[1] Those who are allergic to other β-lactam antibiotics are more likely to be allergic to meropenem.[1] Use in pregnancy appears to be safe.[1] It is in the carbapenem family of medications.[1] Meropenem usually results in bacterial death through blocking their ability to make a cell wall.[1] It is more resistant to breakdown β-lactamase producing bacteria.[1] Meropenem was patented in 1983.[2] It was approved for medical use in the United States in 1996.[1] It is on the World Health ...
This study evaluated oxacillin and cefoxitin DD and BMD testing for the detection of mecA-mediated β-lactam resistance in 100 contemporary human S. epidermidis isolates obtained from three geographical locations in the United States between 2015 and 2018. Nearly equal distributions of mecA-positive and -negative isolates were tested to ensure even distributions of resistant and susceptible isolates. Data generated from three MHA manufacturers (BD, Remel, and Hardy) and three CA-MHB manufacturers (Difco, BD, and Oxoid) demonstrated that cefoxitin DD using CLSI M100-S28 CoNS breakpoints and oxacillin DD using CLSI M100-S28 S. pseudintermedius/S. schleiferi breakpoints accurately predicted the presence and absence of mecA in S. epidermidis with 100% CA. Oxacillin BMD using CoNS breakpoints also yielded results that were highly accurate (with only one false-positive isolate), resulting in a ME rate of 2% and CA of 99%. While the zone of inhibition that was observed using Remel MHA was fainter than ...

E coli beta-lactamase LAT-3 protein: C-class beta-lactamase from cefoxitin-resistant Escherichia coli; closely related to AmpC beta-lactamase; GenBank Y15411
en] The Bacillus licheniformis BS3 beta-lactamase catalyzes the hydrolysis of the beta-lactam ring of penicillins, cephalosporins, and related compounds. The production of beta-lactamases is the most common and thoroughly studied cause of antibiotic resistance. Although they escape the hydrolytic activity of the prototypical Staphylococcus aureus beta-lactamase, many cephems are good substrates for a large number of beta-lactamases. However, the introduction of a 7alpha-methoxy substituent, as in cefoxitin, extends their antibacterial spectrum to many cephalosporin-resistant Gram-negative bacteria. The 7alphamethoxy group selectively reduces the hydrolytic action of many beta-lactamases without having a significant effect on the affinity for the target enzymes, the membrane penicillin-binding proteins. We report here the crystallographic structures of the BS3 enzyme and its acyl-enzyme adduct with cefoxitin at 1.7 Angstrom resolution. The comparison of the two structures reveals a covalent ...
Where laboratories are performing antimicrobial susceptibility testing using cefoxitin, Staphylococcus aureus will likely be correctly identified as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Importantly, cefoxitin has been found to be more reliable than oxacillin in disc diffusion, broth microdilution, and agar dilution assays. A balanced opening out of this attempt is the inclusion of cefoxitin into media which is selective for MRSA. This work illustrates the testing of mannitol salt agar containing 4 mg/liter cefoxitin with a unique set of well-characterized MRSA strains and an equal number of known methicillin susceptible Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA) strains. The agar supported the growth of 96.6% of the MRSA strains in the set and inhibited the growth of 100% of the MSSA strains. The study indicates that selective media based on cefoxitin are better to those based on oxacillin for the detection of MRSA. The findings of this study demonstrate that cefoxitin is far superior to ...

In severe appendicitis, the effect of a single intravenous dose of metronidazole (500 mg) was compared with cefoxitin (1 g). The antibiotics were given by random allocation once the diagnosis had been established at operation. In the metronidazole group, 5 out of 48 patients developed a wound infection whilst in hospital compared with 13 out of 48 in the cefoxitin group (P = 0.036). However, 57% of wound infections became apparent after the patient went home and the overall infection rates were similar. The mean length of postoperative hospital stay was 5.0 days in the metronidazole group and 6.8 days in the cefoxitin group (P = 0.052), but of those who did develop a wound infection, the length of stay was almost double in the cefoxitin group. Anaerobic organisms were cultured from the wound in 7 out of 15 patients who received cefoxitin but in none of 5 patients in the metronidazole group. Whilst metronidazole only delayed the discharge of pus from the wound, it did seem to reduce the severity ...
Discussion. Oxacillin resistance represents a major problem in the treatment of staphylococcal infections, especially because of the heterogenous expression of this resistance (Tveten et al., 2004). In the present study, oxacillin resistance was detected by PCR in 85 (82.5%) of the CoNS isolates studied. Similar results have been reported by Perez and dAzevedo (2008), who reported a rate of 78.4% of oxacillin-resistant CoNS strains using amplification of the mecA gene as the gold standard.. In addition to detection of the mecA gene, the reference methods recommended by the CLSI for the detection of oxacillin resistance in CoNS include the determination of MICs by agar and broth dilution methods, disk diffusion method, screening on Mueller-Hinton agar supplemented with 4 µg/ml oxacillin and 4% NaCl and, more recently, the cefoxitin disk diffusion test (NCCLS 1999, CLSI 2009). The present results show a sensitivity of 95.3% of the oxacillin disk diffusion method for the detection of MRCoNS. A ...

Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates from 11 patients at the Miriam Hospital were identified as resistant to cefoxitin and ceftibuten as well as to aztreonam, cefotaxime, and ceftazidime. Resistance could be transferred by conjugation or transformation with plasmid DNA into Escherichia coli and was due to the production of a beta-lactamase with an isoelectric point of 8.4 named MIR-1. In E. coli, MIR-1 conferred resistance to aztreonam, cefotaxime, ceftazidime, ceftibuten, ceftriaxone, and such alpha-methoxy beta-lactams as cefmetazole, cefotetan, cefoxitin, and moxalactam. In vitro, MIR-1 hydrolyzed cephalothin and cephaloridine much more rapidly than it did penicillin G, ampicillin, or carbenicillin. Cefotaxime was hydrolyzed at 10% the rate of cephaloridine. Cefoxitin inactivation could only be detected by a microbiological test. The inhibition profile of MIR-1 was similar to that of chromosomally mediated class I beta-lactamases. Potassium clavulanate had little effect on cefoxitin or cefibuten ...

Background: HIVinfected patients are at high risk of colonization and infection with methicillin resistant Staphylococci over the past decade. Increasing non-β-lactam antimicrobial resistance among methicillin resistant Staphylococcal clones, particularly to clindamycin, may complicate the efforts to manage infections in the community. Methodology: Nasal swabs from 200 HIV patients were cultured. Staphylococcal isolates were tested for methicillin resistance by Cefoxitin disk diffusion test & inducible clindamycin resistance by D test as per CLSI guidelines. CD4 counts of the patients were determined and analyzed. Results: Among the screened HIV patients prevalence rate of S. aureus was 45.5% (91/200) out of which 27% (54/200) was MRSA, CoNS was 25.5% (51/200) with 13% (26/200) being MRCoNS. Inducible clindamycin resistance was detected in 16.66% MRSA, 18.91% MSSA, 19.23% MRCoNS and 16% MSCoNS. The CD4 counts ranged from 22 to 1235 cells/mm3. Statistical significance was not observed between CD4

Escherichia coli is the primary cause of urinary tract infections and Gram-negative bacteremia worldwide. Since the early years of the 21st century, E.coli has acquired a new mechanism of resistance to antibiotics: extended spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL), type CTX-M. These ESBL inactivate most β-lactams, the preferred class of antibiotics for the treatment of severe E.coli infections. Moreover, the strains that produce these ESBL are often resistant to other classes of antibiotics. Their rapid spread constitutes a major public health concern because of a serious risk of therapeutic impasse. Treatment options in cases of infection with ESBL-producing E.coli are often limited to carbapenems, a class of more recently developed β-lactams. Carbapenems have a very wide spectrum of activity but their effectiveness is threatened by the emergence of strains producing carbapenemases. The development of therapeutic alternatives to treat ESBL-producing E.coli infections is therefore essential. Cephamycins, ...
Results: The results showed 91 isolates (56.88%) were coagulase-positive, and 69 isolates (43.12%) were coagulase-negative Staphylococcus aureus (CNSA). Out of 91 (56.88%) coagulase-positive staphylococci, 32 isolates (35.16%) were resistant to cefoxitin, and 30 isolates (32.96%) were resistant to oxacillin, using disc diffusion method. PCR revealed the presence of the femA gene (510 bp band) in all coagulase-positive isolates (100%), and the mecA gene (513 bp band) was detected in 32 isolates (35.16%); out of 32 MRSA isolates, 13 isolates (40.62%) were positive for presence of the luk-pv gene (433 bp band). ...
In this study of the diversity of AmpC beta-lactamase in clinical isolates of Enterobacter spp., a strain was found carrying the plasmid-mediated AmpC beta-lactamase ACT-1 gene on its chromosome. The strain was identified as Enterobacter hormaechei using phylogenetic analysis of 16S rRNA and hsp60 genes. In addition, the species was confirmed by DNA DNA hybridization. The genetic environment of the bla(ACT-1) gene was characterized, including the ampR and ampG genes, using a two-step PCR. The amino acid sequences of AmpR at serine 35, arginine 86, glycine 102, aspartic acid 135 and tyrosine 264 were conserved. Measurement of the transcription level of the bla(ACT-1), gene using real-time quantitative PCR showed that it increased 1.98-fold following cefoxitin induction. These results suggest that the plasmid-mediated bla(ACT-1) gene originated from the chromosome of E. hormaechei ...

The model itself though, was less to my linking. It goes way too low at the later times. Upon consideration, since the model assumes homoscedastic error it does not matter to the likelihoood if the fit at the lower end is not so good. After all, an error of 1 is nothing compared to errors of 10 or 20 at the upper end of the scale. In addition it can be argued that the error is not homoscedastic. If it were homoscedastic, the underlying data would show way more variation at the lower end of the scale. It would need confirmation from the measuring team, but for now I will assume proportional error ...

The β-lactamase inhibitor avibactam (NXL104) does not induce ampC β -lactamase in Enterobacter cloacae Christine Miossec, Monique Claudon, Premavathy Levasseur, Michael T Black Novexel, Romainville, France Abstract: Induction of ampC β-lactamase expression can often compromise antibiotic treatment and is triggered by several β-lactams (such as cefoxitin and imipenem) and by the β-lactamase inhibitor clavulanic acid. The novel β-lactamase inhibitor avibactam (NXL104) is a potent inhibitor of both class A and class C enzymes. The potential of avibactam for induction of ampC expression in Enterobacter cloacae was investigated by ampC messenger ribonucleic acid quantitation. Cefoxitin and clavulanic acid were confirmed as ampC inducers, whereas avibactam was found to exert no effect on ampC expression. Thus, avibactam is unlikely to diminish the activity of any partner β-lactam antibiotic against AmpC-producing organisms. Keywords: β-lactamase, ampC, induction, NXL104, avibactam
Bacteroides species, saccharolytic Gram-negative obligate anaerobes, are frequently isolated from human infections such as peritonitis, abscesses and bacteremia. Among the species in the genus Bacteroides, thespecies called "B. fragilis group" areparticularly involved inhuman infections andaremedically important because they account for a major part of anaerobic isolates from clinical specimens. The purpose of this study was to develop PCR primers that specifically and simultaneously amplify theβ-isopropylmalate dehydrogenase gene leuB in B. fragilis group species. We determined partial nucleotide sequences of leuB genes and compared them in seventeen strains of nine B. fragilis group species, and the regions that are conserved among Bacteroides strains but different from other species were used as a B. fragilis group-specific PCR primer set, BacLBF-BacLBR. Specificity tests of the primer set using 52 phenotypically characterized strains and 75 isolates from rat feces showed only one case each ...

Staphylococcus aureus is an important human pathogen that causes a wide variety of community- and health care-associated infections (1). This pathogen has a proven ability to adapt to the selective pressure of antibiotics. S. aureus was initially methicillin-susceptible, but isolates resistant to this antibiotic were identified soon after its introduction (2), first in hospital settings and currently in the community and in livestock (3, 4). Methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) is currently a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide (5).. Coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS) have been increasingly recognized to cause clinically significant infections, and CoNS were reported to be one of the most common pathogens responsible for nosocomial infections (6). As observed with S. aureus, CoNS were initially susceptible to methicillin, but the emergence of methicillin-resistant CoNS rapidly followed that of MRSA (7), and CoNS eventually became predominant in hospital settings.. The main ...
en] Metallo-beta-lactamases are native zinc enzymes that catalyse the hydrolysis of beta-lactam antibiotics, but are also able to function with cobalt(II) and require one or two nnetal-ions for catalytic activity. The hydrolysis of cefoxitin, cephaloridine and benzylpenicillin catalysed by CoBcII (cobalt-substituted beta-lactamase from Bacillus cereus) has been studied at different pHs and metal-ion concentrations. An enzyme group of pK(a) 6.52 +/- 0.1 is found to be required in its deprotionated form for metal-ion binding and catalysis. The species that results from the loss of one cobalt ion from the enzyme has no significant catalytic activity and is thought to be the mononuclear CoBcII. It appears that dinuclear CoBcII is the active form of the enzyme necessary for turnover, while the mononuclear CoBcII is only involved in substrate binding. The cobalt-substituted enzyme is a more efficient catalyst than the native enzyme for the hydrolysis of some beta-lactam antibiotics suggesting that the ...
Antibiotics can interact directly with the immune system. This is a review of the immunomodulating effects of antibiotics. The Medline database on CD-ROM was searched for the years 1987 to 1994 using the following search string: thesaurus explode antibiotics/all AND (thesaurus explode immune-system/drug effects OR thesaurus immune-tolerance/drug effects). Aspects of the immune system studied were aspects of phagocyte functions: phagocytosis and killing, and chemotaxis and aspects of lymphocyte functions: lymphocyte proliferation, cytokine production, antibody production, delayed hypersensitivity and natural killer-cell activity. In order to quantify and to compare immunomodulatory properties of antibiotics we calculated an immune index, defined as: number of positive statements--number of negative statements/total number of statements. Concerning phagocytosis, positive effects were observed for cefodizime, imipenem, cefoxitin, amphotericin B and clindamycin and negative effects for erythromycin,
