Bacteria which retain the crystal violet stain when treated by Gram's method.
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.

In vivo activities of peptidic prodrugs of novel aminomethyl tetrahydrofuranyl-1 beta-methylcarbapenems. (1/3518)

A series of novel aminomethyl tetrahydrofuranyl (THF)-1 beta-methylcarbapenems which have excellent broad-spectrum antibacterial activities exhibit modest efficacies against acute lethal infections (3.8 mg/kg of body weight against Escherichia coli and 0.9 mg/kg against Staphylococcus aureus) in mice when they are administered orally. In an effort to improve the efficacies of orally administered drugs through enhanced absorption by making use of a peptide-mediated transport system, several different amino acids were added at the aminomethyl THF side chains of the carbapenem molecules. The resulting peptidic prodrugs with L-amino acids demonstrated improved efficacy after oral administration, while the D forms were less active than the parent molecules. After oral administration increased (3 to 10 times) efficacy was exhibited with the alanine-, valine-, isoleucine-, and phenylalanine-substituted prodrugs against acute lethal infections in mice. Median effective doses (ED50s) of < 1 mg/kg against infections caused by S. aureus, E. coli, Enterobacter cloacae, or penicillin-susceptible Streptococcus pneumoniae were obtained after the administration of single oral doses. Several of the peptidic prodrugs were efficacious against Morganella morganii, Serratia marcescens, penicillin-resistant S. pneumoniae, extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae, and E. coli infections, with ED50s of 1 to 14 mg/kg by oral administration compared with ED50s of 14 to > 32 mg/kg for the parent molecules. In general, the parent molecules demonstrated greater efficacy than the prodrugs against these same infections when the drugs were administered by the subcutaneous route. The parent molecule was detectable in the sera of mice after oral administration of the peptidic prodrugs.  (+info)

Identification of a novel group of bacteria in sludge from a deteriorated biological phosphorus removal reactor. (2/3518)

The microbial diversity of a deteriorated biological phosphorus removal reactor was investigated by methods not requiring direct cultivation. The reactor was fed with media containing acetate and high levels of phosphate (P/C weight ratio, 8:100) but failed to completely remove phosphate in the effluent and showed very limited biological phosphorus removal activity. Denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) of PCR-amplified 16S ribosomal DNA was used to investigate the bacterial diversity. Up to 11 DGGE bands representing at least 11 different sequence types were observed; DNA from the 6 most dominant of these bands was further isolated and sequenced. Comparative phylogenetic analysis of the partial 16S rRNA sequences suggested that one sequence type was affiliated with the alpha subclass of the Proteobacteria, one was associated with the Legionella group of the gamma subclass of the Proteobacteria, and the remaining four formed a novel group of the gamma subclass of the Proteobacteria with no close relationship to any previously described species. The novel group represented approximately 75% of the PCR-amplified DNA, based on the DGGE band intensities. Two oligonucleotide rRNA probes for this novel group were designed and used in a whole-cell hybridization analysis to investigate the abundance of this novel group in situ. The bacteria were coccoid and 3 to 4 microm in diameter and represented approximately 35% of the total population, suggesting a relatively close agreement with the results obtained by the PCR-based DGGE method. Further, based on electron microscopy and standard staining microscopic analysis, this novel group was able to accumulate granule inclusions, possibly consisting of polyhydroxyalkanoate, inside the cells.  (+info)

Pulsed-light inactivation of food-related microorganisms. (3/3518)

The effects of high-intensity pulsed-light emissions of high or low UV content on the survival of predetermined populations of Listeria monocytogenes, Escherichia coli, Salmonella enteritidis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Bacillus cereus, and Staphylococcus aureus were investigated. Bacterial cultures were seeded separately on the surface of tryptone soya-yeast extract agar and were reduced by up to 2 or 6 log10 orders with 200 light pulses (pulse duration, approximately 100 ns) of low or high UV content, respectively (P < 0.001).  (+info)

Class I integrons in Gram-negative isolates from different European hospitals and association with decreased susceptibility to multiple antibiotic compounds. (4/3518)

Class I integrons are associated with carriage of genes encoding resistance to antibiotics. Expression of inserted resistance genes within these structures can be poor and, as such, the clinical relevance in terms of the effect of integron carriage on susceptibility has not been investigated. Of 163 unrelated Gram-negative isolates randomly selected from the intensive care and surgical units of 14 different hospitals in nine European countries, 43.0% (70/163) of isolates were shown to be integron-positive, with inserted gene cassettes of various sizes. Integrons were detected in isolates from all hospitals with no particular geographical variations. Integron-positive isolates were statistically more likely to be resistant to aminoglycoside, quinolone and beta8-lactam compounds, including third-generation cephalosporins and monobactams, than integron-negative isolates. Integron-positive isolates were also more likely to be multi-resistant than integron-negative isolates. This association implicates integrons in multi-drug resistance either directly through carriage of specific resistance genes, or indirectly by virtue of linkage to other resistance determinants such as extended-spectrum beta-lactamase genes. As such their widespread presence is a cause for concern. There was no association between the presence of integrons and susceptibility to cefepime, amikacin and the carbapenems, to which at least 97% of isolates were fully susceptible.  (+info)

Killing kinetics of intracellular Afipia felis treated with amikacin. (5/3518)

Afipia felis is a facultative intracellular bacterium which multiplies in macrophages following inhibition of phagosome-lysosome (P-L) fusion. When A. felis-infected cells are incubated for 72 h with various antibiotics, only aminoglycosides are found to be bactericidal. We therefore studied the killing of intracellular A. felis by amikacin, and its relationship with the restoration of P-L fusion. Amikacin reduced the number of A. felis from 8.5 x 10(5) to 3.5 x 102 cfu/mL within 94 h. P-L fusion was restored after 30-40 h of incubation with amikacin. Both mechanisms may participate in the intracellular killing of bacteria.  (+info)

A GroEL homologue from endosymbiotic bacteria of the whitefly Bemisia tabaci is implicated in the circulative transmission of tomato yellow leaf curl virus. (6/3518)

Evidence for the involvement of a Bemisia tabaci GroEL homologue in the transmission of tomato yellow leaf curl geminivirus (TYLCV) is presented. A approximately 63-kDa protein was identified in B. tabaci whole-body extracts using an antiserum raised against aphid Buchnera GroEL. The GroEL homologue was immunolocalized to a coccoid-shaped whitefly endosymbiont. The 30 N-terminal amino acids of the whitefly GroEL homologue showed 80% homology with that from different aphid species and GroEL from Escherichia coli. Purified GroEL from B. tabaci exhibited ultrastructural similarities to that of the endosymbiont from aphids and E. coli. In vitro ligand assays showed that tomato yellow leaf curl virus (TYLCV) particles displayed a specific affinity for the B. tabaci 63-kDa GroEL homologue. Feeding whiteflies anti-Buchnera GroEL antiserum before the acquisition of virions reduced TYLCV transmission to tomato test plants by >80%. In the haemolymph of these whiteflies, TYLCV DNA was reduced to amounts below the threshold of detection by Southern blot hybridization. Active antibodies were recovered from the insect haemolymph suggesting that by complexing the GoEL homologue, the antibody disturbed interaction with TYLCV, leading to degradation of the virus. We propose that GroEL of B. tabaci protects the virus from destruction during its passage through the haemolymph.  (+info)

Molecular analysis of a novel methanesulfonic acid monooxygenase from the methylotroph Methylosulfonomonas methylovora. (7/3518)

Methylosulfonomonas methylovora M2 is an unusual gram-negative methylotrophic bacterium that can grow on methanesulfonic acid (MSA) as the sole source of carbon and energy. Oxidation of MSA by this bacterium is carried out by a multicomponent MSA monooxygenase (MSAMO). Cloning and sequencing of a 7.5-kbp SphI fragment of chromosomal DNA revealed four tightly linked genes encoding this novel monooxygenase. Analysis of the deduced MSAMO polypeptide sequences indicated that the enzyme contains a two-component hydroxylase of the mononuclear-iron-center type. The large subunit of the hydroxylase, MsmA (48 kDa), contains a typical Rieske-type [2Fe-2S] center with an unusual iron-binding motif and, together with the small subunit of the hydroxylase, MsmB (20 kDa), showed a high degree of identity with a number of dioxygenase enzymes. However, the other components of the MSAMO, MsmC, the ferredoxin component, and MsmD, the reductase, more closely resemble those found in other classes of oxygenases. MsmC has a high degree of identity to ferredoxins from toluene and methane monooxygenases, which are enzymes characterized by possessing hydroxylases containing mu-oxo bridge binuclear iron centers. MsmD is a reductase of 38 kDa with a typical chloroplast-like [2Fe-2S] center and conserved flavin adenine dinucleotide- and NAD-binding motifs and is similar to a number of mono- and dioxygenase reductase components. Preliminary analysis of the genes encoding MSAMO from a marine MSA-degrading bacterium, Marinosulfonomonas methylotropha, revealed the presence of msm genes highly related to those found in Methylosulfonomonas, suggesting that MSAMO is a novel type of oxygenase that may be conserved in all MSA-utilizing bacteria.  (+info)

Lipopolyamines: novel antiendotoxin compounds that reduce mortality in experimental sepsis caused by gram-negative bacteria. (8/3518)

The interactions of lipopolyamines, a class of structurally unique compounds currently being used as transfection (lipofection) agents, with lipopolysaccharide (LPS) have been characterized. Our studies have demonstrated that 1,3-di-oleoyloxy-2-(6-carboxyspermyl)-propylamide), available commercially as DOSPER, binds to purified LPS with an affinity of about 1/10 that of polymyxin B. This essentially nontoxic compound inhibits, in a dose-dependent manner, LPS-induced activation of the Limulus clotting cascade and the production of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) interleukin-6 (IL-6), and nitric oxide from LPS-stimulated J774.A1 cells, a murine macrophage-like cell line. Cytokine inhibition is paralleled by decreased steady-state levels of TNF-alpha and IL-6 mRNA and inhibits the nuclear translocation of nuclear factor kappa B. These findings suggest that the lipopolyamine compound sequesters LPS, thereby blocking downstream cellular activation events that lead to the production of proinflammatory mediators. Administration of DOSPER to D-galactosamine-sensitized mice challenged either with LPS or with Escherichia coli organisms provided significant protection against lethality both with and without antibiotic chemotherapy. Partial protection is evident in LPS-challenged mice treated with DOSPER as late as 2 to 4 h following the endotoxin challenge. A greater degree of protection is observed in E. coli-challenged animals receiving ceftazidime than in those receiving imipenem, which is probably attributable to the higher levels of LPS released in vivo by the former antibiotic. Potent antiendotoxic activity, low toxicity, and ease of synthesis render the lipopolyamines candidate endotoxin-sequestering agents of potential significant therapeutic value.  (+info)

Multidrug resistant Gram-negative bacteria (MDRGN bacteria) are a type of Gram-negative bacteria with resistance to multiple antibiotics. They can cause bacteria infections that pose a serious and rapidly emerging threat for hospitalized patients and especially patients in intensive care units. Infections caused by MDR strains are correlated with increased morbidity, mortality, and prolonged hospitalization. Thus, not only do these bacteria pose a threat to global public health, but also create a significant burden to healthcare systems. These bacteria pose a great threat to public health due to the limited treatment options available as well as lack of newly developed antimicrobial medications. MDR strains of Enterobacteriaceae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Acinetobacter baumannii have become of most concern because they have been reported by hospitals all around the United States. There are many factors which could be contributed to the existence and spread of MDR gram-negative bacteria such as ...

3. Should I use combination or monotherapy for the treatment of serious infections due to carbapenem-resistant Gram-negative bacilli?. When dealing with carbapenem-resistant Gram-negative bacilli clinicians are left with limited and suboptimal treatment options.. While recent additions of ceftolozane/tazobactam (Zerbaxa) and ceftazidime/avibactam (Avycaz) have given clinicians novel beta-lactam based treatment options for Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae (CRE), experience remains extremely limited with these agents and isolates with resistance to these newer agents have already been identified. The options remaining all come with significant limitations that temper enthusiasm about them.. The mainstays of therapy, the polymyxins, are associated with a dose-limiting nephrotoxicity (occurring around ~30-50% of the time!!), an inability to hit pharmacodynamic targets for deep-seeded infections, and significant heteroresistance, most notably in A. baumannii..

Join presenter Jean Chastre (Paris, France) on Monday 2nd October from 16:00 -17:00 CET for this interactive webinar on an important topic for all intensive care professionals…. Ventilator-associated pneumonia is one of the most common infections occurring in mechanically ventilated patients and is frequently caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Persistently high mortalities for pneumonia in the intensive care unit argue for a continued reassessment of our current modalities of diagnosis and therapy, as well as definition of better protocols. More active antibacterial agents are still needed, especially for problematic pathogens that are now emerging in many countries worldwide, such as multidrug-resistant nonfermenting gram-negative bacilli and ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae (including carbapenemase-producing Gram-negative bacilli), as well as a better use of already available antimicrobial agents based on optimised PK/PD parameters..

Antibiotic resistance is now a worldwide therapeutic problem. Since the beginning of anti-infectious treatment bacteria have rapidly shown an incredible ability to develop and transfer resistance mechanisms. In the last decades, the design variation of pioneer bioactive molecules has strongly improved their activity and the pharmaceutical companies partly won the race against the clock. Since the 80s, the new classes of antibiotics that emerged were mainly directed to Gram-positive bacteria. Thus, we are now facing to multidrug resistant Gram-negative bacteria, with no therapeutic options to deal with them. These bacteria are mainly resistant because of their double membrane that conjointly impairs antibiotic accumulation and extrudes these molecules when entered. The main challenge is to allow antibiotics to cross the impermeable envelope and reach their targets. One promising solution would be to associate, in a combination therapy, a usual antibiotic with a non-antibiotic chemosensitizer.
Any alteration in the outer membrane by Gram-negative bacteria like changing the hydrophobic properties or mutations in porins and other factors, can create resistance. Gram-positive bacteria lack this important layer, which makes Gram-negative bacteria more resistant to antibiotics than Gram-positive ones [5,6,7 ...

Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is the major component of the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria consisting of three domains: a hydrophobic anchor called lipid A, a non-repeating core oligosaccharide (OS) and a repetitive glycan polymer called O-antigen or O-polysaccharide (O-PS). The enzymes for the biosynthesis of lipid A are well conserved among Gram-negative bacterial species [MD:M00060 M00866]. The core OS connecting lipid A with O-antigen is divided into inner and outer parts. Five core types, K-12 and R1-R4, are identified in Escherichia coli, with the common inner part composed of Kdo (ketodeoxyoctulosonic acid) and Hep (heptose) residues and the outer part made of various sugar residues. O-antigen is the most variable part used for serotyping of pathogenic Escherichia coli, where about 170 types are known. All three domains are involved in toxicity, pathogenicity, antimicrobial resistance and other activities ...
The frequent use of antibiotics against microbial infections may lead the emergence of antibiotic resistant microbial strains. To overcome these microbial strains, we need to fabricate alternative materials which can handle them. It is for this reason, we have fabricated cellulose (CE) based filter paper (FP) composite scaffolds comprising of adsorbed chitosan (CS) and sliver (Ag) nanoparticles (NPs). The AgNPs are incorporated in the CS layer of the composite scaffold. Prior to evaluate the efficacy of the scaffolds against gram positive and gram negative bacterial strains, the scaffolds were characterized for the presence of the Ag NPs with field emission scanning electron microscope (FE-SEM), fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and x-ray diffractometer (XRD ...

In this review we focus on the MatP, SeqA, and SlmA proteins that have recently been identified as the first examples of factors with macrodomain-specific DNA-binding properties. In particular, we review the evidence that these factors contribute towards the control of chromosome replication and segregation by specifically targeting subregions of the genome and contributing towards their unique properties. Genome sequence analysis of multiple related bacteria, including pathogenic species, reveals that macrodomain-specific distribution of SeqA, SlmA, and MatP is conserved, suggesting common principles of chromosome organisation in these organisms. This discovery of proteins with macrodomain-specific binding properties hints that there are other proteins with similar specificity yet to be unveiled. We discuss the roles of the proteins identified to date as well as ...
New Haven, Conn, April 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Melinta Therapeutics, a privately held company developing novel antibiotics to treat serious bacterial infections, announced today that collaborators of the company have been invited to make a presentation on the companys development of a novel class of antibiotics called pyrrolocytosines during a moderated e-poster session. These compounds are based on a molecular scaffold that was rationally designed for high binding affinity to a site on the bacterial ribosome not exploited by other commercially available antimicrobials. By honing the scaffolds shapes and polarities, Melinta scientists have created hundreds of pyrrolocytosine compounds that demonstrate potent activity against Gram-negative bacteria, do not share cross-resistance with current therapies and - in their best examples - are not impacted by efflux, a major problem with resistant Gram-negative bacteria. Four exemplars from the class, with a range of expected activities, were ...

Production of AmpC and extended spectrum beta-lactamases among urinary isolates has created a serious problem to the successful management of the urinary tract infection. The main purpose of this study was to determine the rates of the extended spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) production and AmpC beta-lactamase (ABL) production among urinary isolates. Among total 564 urinary isolates, 514 (91.1%) were gram negative bacilli and 50 (8.9%) were gram positive cocci. E. coli (76.1%) was the most common bacteria isolated. Staphylococcus aureus (6.7%) was the predominant gram positive bacteria isolated. 35 (6.8%) of the 514 gram negative bacilli were ESBL producers. Similarly, 14 (2.7%) of the gram negative bacilli were ABL producers. Only one isolate was ESBL and ABL co-producer. Highest rate of susceptibility of gram negative bacteria was seen toward amikacin (97.3%) followed by imipenem (94.4%). Similarly, highest rate of susceptibility among gram positive cocci was seen toward vancomycin (100%) followed by
Similarities and Differences Between Gram Positive and Gram Negative Bacteria). What is Grams staining?. Christian Gram, a Danish Physician in 1884 developed a staining technique to distinguish two types of bacteria. The two categories of bacteria based on gram staining are Gram positive bacteria and Gram negative bacteria. Bacteria are first stained with crystal violet or gentian violet. All bacterial cells will stain blue or purple colour with crystal violet solution. Then the bacterial cells are treated with iodine solution (Lugols iodine) solution and washed with alcohol (de-staining solution). Those bacteria which retain the blue or purple colour of crystal violet are called Gram positive bacteria and those bacteria which loose the colour of crystal violet after washing with de-staining solution is called Gram Negative bacteria. Gram negative bacteria are later stained with safranin or fuchsin for observation under microscope. Gram negative bacteria after safranin or fuchsin staining will ...

Multidrug-resistant gram-negative bacilli are emerging threats in the intensive care unit setting worldwide. Extended-spectrum β-lactamases, AmpC β-lactamases, and carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae are increasing at an alarming rate, leaving limited therapeutic options. In addition, multidrug resistance among Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Acinetobacter baumannii has widely disseminated and become a frequent cause of nosocomial infections within many intensive care units. Therefore, resistance is increasing to all currently available antibiotics, including cephalosporins, penicillins, aztreonam, carbapenems, fluoroquinolones, and aminoglycosides. Some multidrug-resistant gram-negative bacteria remain susceptible to only a few antibiotics such as tigecycline, fosfomycin, and polymyxins. The steady trend of increasing resistance coupled with the lack of novel antibiotics targeting resistant gram-negative bacilli has forced clinicians to increasingly apply more aggressive dosing strategies, ...
Muramidase activity in the acid stomach of a foregut fermenter, receiving a considerable biomass of bacteria, allows the digestion of bacterial cell walls and liberalisation of amino acid-rich cell contents. The activity of BG lysozyme on purified murein was different to that of other c lysozymes in having lower optimal pH and L, D carboxypeptidase or Nacetyl muramyl L-ala amidase activity. It was, like other lysozymes, active only against Gram positive bacteria. Other systems such as Entamoeba histolytica, are known to contain lysozyme acting in concert with membrane permeabilizing peptides [12], but attempts to purify active small peptides from BGE have failed, so far.. Presence of Gram negative bacteria in the rumen does not seem to have driven the evolution of gastric peptides capable of degrade them. This would limit the efficiency of the system, since only Gram positive bacteria are amenable to digestion, and Gram negative bacteria represent a considerable proportion of rumen bacterial ...
Definition, Etiology, PathogenesisTop. Neutropenia is the most common hematologic complication of cancer treatment. It may result from the myelotoxic effects of chemotherapy or radiation therapy or from bone marrow infiltration by malignant cells. In patients with febrile neutropenia the causative pathogen can be identified only in 20% to 30% of cases. Prior to the introduction of empiric therapy for febrile neutropenia, the most frequently identified etiologic agents were Pseudomonas spp and Enterobacteriaceae (eg, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella spp) followed by gram-positive cocci (most commonly Staphylococcus aureus). In the era of empiric therapy, there has been a shift in the microbiology of pathogens to predominantly gram-positive organisms (coagulase-negative staphylococci being the most common) followed by Enterobacteriaceae and then by nonfermenting gram-negative bacilli, such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa.. Febrile neutropenia is defined as: 1) Oral temperature ≥38.3 degrees Celsius in a ...

More than 80% of skin infections is caused by Gram positive bacteria, such as Staphylococci and Streptococci (Clinical Infectious Diseases).. 75-95% of uncomplicated urinary infections (Microbiology Spectrum) and most sexually transmitted infections (Clinical Laboratory Science) are caused by Gram-negative bacteria.. Respiratory infections are caused by both Gram-positive and negative bacteria (Lumenlearning).. So, the only pattern I see is that in dry/air-exposed areas (skin, respiratory tract), most infections are caused by Gram-positive bacteria, and in wet areas (gastrointestinal and genitourinary tract) by Gram-negative bacteria. This doesnt mean that there is any actual biological mechanism behind this pattern, though. ...

The finding of fresh antibiotics to take care of Gram-negative infections is definitely a significant unmet clinical want. It is more challenging to take care of Gram-negative attacks than to take care of Gram-positive infections due to differences in mobile physiology. The cell envelope of Gram-negative bacterias consists of internal and external membranes having a slim coating of cell wall structure in between both membranes. The external membrane can be an asymmetric bilayer. The external leaflet comprises of lipopolysaccharide Varenicline IC50 (LPS), as the internal leaflet comprises of phospholipids (Number 1a).1,2 The assembly of LPS within the cell surface area forms a ...
Gram-negative bacteria secrete a wide range of proteins whose functions include biogenesis of organelles, such as pilli and flagella, nutrient acquisition, virulence, and efflux of drugs and other toxins. Six distinct secretion systems have been shown to mediate protein export through the inner and outer membranes of Gram-negative bacteria. These pathways are highly conserved throughout the Gram-negative bacterial species. In Gram-positive bacteria, secreted proteins are commonly translocated across the single membrane by the Sec pathway or the two-arginine (Tat) pathway ...
Abstract: Actinomycetes are one of the most important groups that produce useful secondary metabolites. They play a great role in pharmaceutical and industrial uses. The search for antibiotic producing soil actinomycetes to inhibit the growth of pathogenic microorganisms has become widespread due to the need for newer antibiotics. The present work was aimed to isolate soil actinomycetes from pinus tree rhizosphere from Doddabetta, Western Ghats, Tamil Nadu, India. Thirty one actinomycetes were isolated based on heterogeneity and stability in subculturing; they were screened against 5 Gram positive and 7 Gram negative bacteria in an in vitro antagonism assay. In the preliminary screening, out of 31 isolates, 12.09% showed good antagonistic activity; 25.08% showed moderate activity; 19.35% showed weak activity and 41.93% showed no activity against the tested bacteria. Among the isolates tested, DPR20 showed good antibacterial activity against both Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria. The ...
Since the introduction into clinical practice of the aminoglycoside class of antibiotics, a number of other antimicrobial agents with improved safety profile have entered the market. Studies have failed to demonstrate the superiority of aminoglycoside-containing regimens in a number of infection settings. This has raised doubts regarding the actual clinical utility of aminoglycosides. However, the recent emergence of infections due to Gram-negative bacterial strains with advanced patterns of antimicrobial resistance has prompted physicians to reconsider these old antibacterial agents. This revived interest in the use of aminoglycosides has brought back to light the debate on the two major issues related to these compounds, namely the spectrum of antimicrobial susceptibility and toxicity. Although some of the aminoglycosides retain activity against the majority of Gram-negative clinical bacterial isolates in many parts of the world, the relatively frequent occurrence of nephrotoxicity and ...
In Gram-negative bacteria, multi-component machines that span the inner and outer membranes actively extrude drugs and other toxic small compounds. Many of these machines are assembled principally from three different types of components: i) an outer membrane protein that acts as a channel and opens from a sealed resting state during the transport process, ii) an inner membrane protein that transduces proton electrochemical energy into vectorial displacement of the transported compounds, and iii) a bridging, periplasmic component that links the inner and outer membrane proteins. The pumps may assemble transiently, and the association of components is favoured by engaged substrate and the trans-membrane electrochemical potential. We describe recent structural and functional studies on the individual pump components and discuss models that explain how they associate in the dynamic, active assembly. Based on the available data, we suggest that the assembly of these multi-drug efflux pumps is ...

All bacteraemic cases, from August 2006 to September 2007 were identified by reviewing all positive blood culture results from the microbiology department of our hospital. One thousand three hundred and sixty six cases were detected in 1336 patients. The rate of true bacteremia which was 13.1 and 10.7% of cultures were contaminated. Of the 1366 episodes of bloodstream infection, 55.3% were community-acquired and 44.7% were health-care associated. Gram-positive bacteria prevailed (58.5%), followed by gram negative bacilli (38.5%). Polymicrobial bacteremia was detected in 2.2% of cases. Coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS) were the leading cause (550/1366 = 40.3%), whilst enterococci,Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococci represented 8, 6.4 and 3.8% respectively. Pseudomonas aeruginosa was the commonest gram-negative isolate (155/1366 = 11.3%), followed by Escherichia coli (8.2%) and Acinetobactersp. (7.3%). Fungi were isolated in
Under hostile conditions, bacteria elicit stress response. Such stress response is regulated by a secondary messenger called (p)ppGpp. (p)ppGpp is involved in wide range of functions such as GTP homeostasis, biofilm formation and cell growth. Its regulation and mode of action is not well understood. This work has been initiated with an aim to gain insights into the molecular basis of stress response. (p)ppGpp was discovered on the chromatogram of cell extract from starved E. coli cells. (p)ppGpp is synthesized and hydrolyzed by Rel/SpoT in Gram negative bacteria (such as E. coli), and by bifunctional enzyme called Rel in Gram positive bacteria (such as Mycobacteria). The obvious question that comes in our mind is how bifunctional Rel enzyme decides on synthesis or hydrolysis in Gram positive bacteria such as Mycobacterium? In our laboratory, it has been shown that N-terminal domain of Rel shows unregulated (p)ppGpp synthesis implying regulatory role of C-terminal domain. Also, concurrent ...
Misc.Comments : Suicide vector permitting gene replacement and mobilization into a wide range of Gram negative bacteria. Allows positive selection for integration. Replicates only in enterobacteria, and so functions as a suicide vector in other Gram negative hosts. When induced by media containing 5% sucrose, sacB is lethal in a wide range of Gram negative bacteria, and thus permits selection for loss of the vector. A single BglII site within the gentamicin resistance gene (gtmR) allows insertion of other resistance genes (e.g., as a BamHI cassette). The order of the major features of the plasmid is: gtmR - EcoRI/MCS/HindIII - P15A - cos - traJ - oriT - sacB.

β-lactamases (EC 3.5.2.6) [1,2] are enzymes which catalyze the hydrolysis of an amide bond in the β-lactam ring of antibiotics belonging to the penicillin/cephalosporin family. Four kinds of β-lactamase have been identified [2]. Class-B enzymes are zinc containing proteins whilst class -A, C and D enzymes are serine hydrolases. Class-B β-lactamases have been described in several Gram-negative bacterial species; they seem to share the characteristic of being able to hydrolyze carbapenem compounds which are new β-lactam antibiotics of great therapeutic potential. There are a number of conserved regions in the sequence of known class-B β-lactamases [3]. Most of them are centered on residues known [4] to be involved in binding the zinc ion essential for the enzymes catalytic activity. We designed two signature patterns for this class of enzyme. The first contains three residues involved in binding zinc ions. The second pattern contains a cysteine which is also a zinc ligand. Last update: ...
The production of external membrane vesicles by Gram-negative bacteria has been well documented; however, the mechanism behind the biogenesis of these vesicles remains unclear. have led to several different models describing how Gram-negative bacteria produce OMVs. Data showing that OMV lipids differ from the lipids of the OM, such as the aforementioned statement on OMVs, have led to a model in which membrane curvature is definitely induced from the build up of LPS molecules with atypical constructions or costs. LPS is the major constituent of the outer leaflet of the OM of most Gram-negative bacteria. The LPS molecules themselves are not homogeneous; the space and content material of the polysaccharide chain varies among the different molecules. It is proposed that subsets of these molecules may gather in patches along the OM, inducing higher BIIB021 examples of membrane curvature at particular locations, either due to charge repulsion [22] or their molecular shape [23]. A second, but not ...
The establishment of a continuous intragastric in vivo enteral feeding protocol in the rat by Tsukamoto and French (Tsukamoto et al., 1984) represented a major development in alcohol research (French et al., 1986; Tsukamoto et al., 1990). With this model, not only is steatosis observed, which is characteristic of several animal models, but also inflammation and necrosis occur in ∼2 to 4 weeks and fibrosis begins to develop in 12 to 16 weeks.. Gram-negative bacterial species are a major source of endotoxin in the gut microflora (Bode et al., 1984) and blood endotoxin levels increase with alcohol (Fukui et al., 1991). Endotoxin activates Kupffer cells that produce free radicals (e.g., superoxide and nitric oxide) (Decker et al., 1989), leading to liver injury (Knecht et al., 1995). Indeed, intestinal sterilization with antibiotics (Adachi et al., 1995) and suppression of endotoxin production with lactobacillus feeding (Nanji et al., 1994) minimize alcohol-induced liver injury in the ...

Half of all people are chronically infected with Helicobacter pylori, a Gram negative bacterium that plays a causative role in the development of gastric cancer. It comes in two types, one that is relatively harmless and another that increases the risk of cancer six-fold.. The dangerous strain causes a particularly strong inflammation in the stomach mucosa by activating nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB), the master switch of the tissue-based innate immune response, which rapidly triggers transcription of genes that initiate local inflammation. How exactly H. pylori triggers NF-κB has long been a mystery, however.. Now, a team at the Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology in Berlin has shown that the bacteria inject host cells with a sugar molecule, called HBP, found only in Gram negative bacteria, which activates NF-κB via a novel pathway. The researchers found that injection of HBP results in the rapid assembly of very large complexes, so-called TIFAsomes, which contain numerous proteins ...
Quorum sensing is a cell density-dependent signaling phenomenon used by bacteria for coordination of population-wide phenotypes, such as expression of virulence genes, antibiotic resistance and biofilm formation. Lately, disruption of bacterial communication has emerged as an anti-virulence strategy with enormous therapeutic potential given the increasing incidences of drug resistance in pathogenic bacteria. The quorum quenching therapeutic approach promises a lower risk of resistance development, since interference with virulence generally does not affect the growth and fitness of the bacteria and, hence, does not exert an associated selection pressure for drug-resistant strains. With better understanding of bacterial communication networks and mechanisms, many quorum quenching methods have been developed against various clinically significant bacterial pathogens. In particular, Gram-negative bacteria are an important group of pathogens, because, collectively, they are responsible for the majority of

Maybe you know this already, but a gram stain is a stain that is done on a specimen, which will show the presence of bacteria, and the types of bacteria which can be categorized by their shape, and what color they stain with the grain stain. There are gram positive bacteria, which take on, and retain the primary stain, crystal violet and stain a blue-purple color, which can be seen under the microscope. Then there are gram negative bacteria, which take the crystal violet too, but allow this primary stain to be washed out in a decolorizing step using acetone. These bacteria take on the color of a secondary stain, safranin, a red stain which is added after decolorization so you can see them under the microscope too. These show up as red bacteria. You can see the shapes of these bacteria, usually as round, or cocci, rods (long, or short rods, depending on the species), and spiril (cork-screwed or curved). ...

The cytosol contains oil droplets, food reserves and the 70S ribosomes, and is surrounded by a plasmalemma. In Gram negative bacteria, a further outer membrane surrounds the plasmalemma, with a thin cell wall and periplasmic space trapped between them. In Gram positive bacteria, there is no outer membrane, and the cell wall is thicker. The cell wall is composed of peptidoglycan and various organic acids in Eubacteria. Bacteria have flagella, but they are simple proteinaceous strands attached to a rotary motor, completely dissimilar to the complex eukaryotic undulipodium. Membranes may be present in the cell, as in the thylakoids of the Cyanobacteria. In gram-positive bacteria the mambrane may form mesosomes, which are invaginations in the cell membrane that may be involved in DNA replication and oxidative phosphorylation. The cytosol may also contain various episomes (small circular chromosomes), some called plasmids, and others called (bacterio)phages, which are bacterial viruses. Prokaryotes ...
Imipenem is a carbapenem antibacterial agent with a broad spectrum of activity against Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. This agent is often used as the last line of therapy for highly resistant Gram negative bacilli nosocomial infections. In common with other beta-lactamase inhibitor, the main pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) index that correlates with the therapeutic efficacy is the time that concentrations in the tissue and serum are above the MIC and administration by continuous infusion is the preferred mode of administration to maximize this parameter.. However, in tropical countries, the stability of carbapenem antibiotics is an important consideration when considering continuous infusion. Therefore, prolonged infusion may be a useful mode of administration to maximize bactericidal activity. This study will demonstrate the stability of imipenem in clinical use at room temperature in tropical countries. ...
BACKGROUND: Gram-negative organisms are a major health care concern with increasing prevalence of infection and community spread. Our primary aim was to characterize the transmission dynamics of frequently encountered gram-negative bacteria in the anesthesia work area environment (AWE). Our secondary aim was to examine links between these transmission events and 30-day postoperative health care-associated infections (HCAIs). METHODS: Gram-negative isolates obtained from the AWE (patient nasopharynx and axilla, anesthesia provider hands, and the adjustable pressure-limiting valve and agent dial of the anesthesia machine) at 3 major academic medical centers were identified as possible intraoperative bacterial transmission events by class of pathogen, temporal association, and phenotypic analysis (analytical profile indexing). The top 5 frequently encountered genera were subjected to antibiotic disk diffusion sensitivity to identify epidemiologically related transmission events. Complete multivariable
Over the last decade, small (often noncoding) RNA molecules have been discovered as important regulators influencing myriad aspects of bacterial physiology and virulence. In particular, small RNAs (sRNAs) have been implicated in control of both primary and secondary metabolic pathways in many bacterial species. This chapter describes characteristics of the major classes of sRNA regulators, and highlights what is known regarding their mechanisms of action. Specific examples of sRNAs that regulate metabolism in gram-negative bacteria are discussed, with a focus on those that regulate gene expression by base pairing with mRNA targets to control their translation and stability.
They can be grouped under two categories: Gram positive bacteria and Gram negative bacteria depending on the nature of the cell wall and the stain which they take up during Grams staining ...

A team of Princeton researchers reported today in the journal Cell that they have found a compound, SCH-79797, that can simultaneously puncture bacterial walls and destroy folate within their cells - while being immune to antibiotic resistance.. Bacterial infections come in two flavors - Gram-positive and Gram-negative - named for the scientist who discovered how to distinguish them. The key difference is that Gram-negative bacteria are armored with an outer layer that shrugs off most antibiotics. In fact, no new classes of Gram-negative-killing drugs have come to market in nearly 30 years.. This is the first antibiotic that can target Gram-positives and Gram-negatives without resistance, said Zemer Gitai, Princetons Edwin Grant Conklin Professor of Biology and the senior author on the paper. From a Why its useful perspective, thats the crux. But what were most excited about as scientists is something weve discovered about how this antibiotic works - attacking via two different ...
Infectious diseases are becoming a major menace to the state of health worldwide, with difficulties in effective treatment especially of nosocomial infections caused by Gram-negative bacteria being increasingly reported. Inadequate permeation of anti-infectives into or across the Gram-negative bacterial cell envelope, due to its intrinsic barrier function as well as barrier enhancement mediated by resistance mechanisms, can be identified as one of the major reasons for insufficient therapeutic effects. Several in vitro, in silico, and in cellulo models are currently employed to increase the knowledge of anti-infective transport processes into or across the bacterial cell envelope; however, all such models exhibit drawbacks or have limitations with respect to the information they are able to provide ...
I learnt on the benefits of bacteria and how deadly it can be. I also learnt how to stain the bacteria to classify them into gram positive and gram negative. If the bacteria is positive, it can be more easily killed by antibiotics, while gram negative bacteria is harder to be killed.- How do you feel about todays activities? o This project taught me about not to abuse antibiotics and the consequences if we abuse them(unfinished course). If we do not complete the course, the bacteria might mutate and build up resistance to the antibiotics that were normally used to treat them. If not for todays activities, I would not have realised that bacteria could build up resistance to a point where even high concentrations of the antibiotics would not kill them. ...

The importance of the wash step in Gram stain is, that to remove the dye from the walls of bacteria so coloring is not mixed with final results, as well the dye for gram positive stays one while from gram negative lightens. The order of dyes are important because, Gram Positive bacteria have thick peptidoglycon walls that retain the dark color, so violet is first used, then after the wash for gram negative the color washes off a bit, and then a lighter color is added so the Gram Positive will show purple and negative will show light red/pink ...
The research report offers insights into both existing and therapeutics under development for the treatment of gram-negative bacterial infection.
Whats the difference between Gram-negative Bacteria and Gram-positive Bacteria? Danish scientist Hans Christian Gram devised a method to differentiate two types of bacteria based on the structural differences in their cell walls. In his test, bacteria that retain the crystal violet dye do so because of a thick layer of peptidoglycan a...
Over a two week period, eight prepared types of test media were provided to identify the assigned unknown mixed cultures. Not all of these tests were performed on every culture, as some were used only for gram positive or gram negative bacteria. The tests performed and what constituted a positive or negative test are as follows: Lab day 1; today in lab we obtained the unknown mixed culture 041and one brain-heart infusion agar (BHIA). The first step was the preparation of the medium, the bottom of the BHIA dish was labeled with the bacterium number, initials, and section; then divided into four quadrants. The second step, we used the septic technique to transfer a small amount of culture with a flame-sterilized inoculating loop to the first quadrant, flamed and cooled the loop again then transferred a small amount of the culture from the first quadrant to the second using the quadrant streaking method as illustrated on page 18 of the lab manual, repeating this process until all four quadrants ...
Ideally, we would use B. subtilis because it is a well characterised gram positive bacterium that does quorum sensing using small peptides as autoinducers. These small peptides could be produced as a result of cleavage of a membrane-anchored protein by a protease from the parasite which we want to detect. However, there are issues regarding the extracellular proteases produced by gram positive bacteria. These could interfere with the system and could result in false positives or degrade the protease detection peptide. There are protease deficient strains available that may bypass some of these problems. Protease detector peptides (small linear quourum sensing peptide attached to protease recognition sequence) may also get trapped between the cell wall and cell membraine. To avoid this we looked into mechanisms of transport and attachment of these peptides to the ouside of cell wall. An alternative is to secrete detector peptides into the medium as B.subtilis is very good at secreting proteins. ...
