Quantitative studies on competitive activities of skin bacteria growing on solid media. (1/728)

Earlier quantitative investigations of antagonism between skin bacteria were based on the use of liquid cultures, but a more realistic model has now been devised, based on the use of the surfaces of solid media. Pure or mixed inocula were spread evenly over suitable agar media in Petri dishes marked out with a standard grid. Growth curves were constructed from viable counts of the surface bacteria after they had been removed from excised squares of the agar media and dispersed. The method was highly reproducible, and competitive interactions were revealed more clearly than in studies with liquid media. An antibiotic-producing strain of Staphylococcus epidermidis (S6+) readily suppressed strains of Micrococcus, Corynebacterium and Streptococcus species. However, a Staphylococcus aureus strain which was less sensitive to the antibiotic effect of S6+ interacted in a complex manner, depending on the absolute and relative size of the S6+ inoculum.  (+info)

Use of the cell wall precursor lipid II by a pore-forming peptide antibiotic. (2/728)

Resistance to antibiotics is increasing in some groups of clinically important pathogens. For instance, high vancomycin resistance has emerged in enterococci. Promising alternative antibiotics are the peptide antibiotics, abundant in host defense systems, which kill their targets by permeabilizing the plasma membrane. These peptides generally do not act via specific receptors and are active in the micromolar range. Here it is shown that vancomycin and the antibacterial peptide nisin Z use the same target: the membrane-anchored cell wall precursor Lipid II. Nisin combines high affinity for Lipid II with its pore-forming ability, thus causing the peptide to be highly active (in the nanomolar range).  (+info)

A beta1,3-glucan recognition protein from an insect, Manduca sexta, agglutinates microorganisms and activates the phenoloxidase cascade. (3/728)

Pattern recognition proteins function in innate immune responses by binding to molecules on the surface of invading pathogens and initiating host defense reactions. We report the purification and molecular cloning of a cDNA for a 53-kDa beta1,3-glucan-recognition protein from the tobacco hornworm, Manduca sexta. This protein is constitutively expressed in fat body and secreted into hemolymph. The protein contains a region with sequence similarity to several glucanases, but it lacks glucanase activity. It binds to the surface of and agglutinates yeast, as well as gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria. Beta1,3-glucan-recognition protein in the presence of laminarin, a soluble glucan, stimulated activation of prophenoloxidase in plasma, whereas laminarin alone did not. These results suggest that beta1,3-glucan-recognition protein serves as a pattern recognition molecule for beta1,3-glucan on the surface of fungal cell walls. After binding to beta1,3-glucan, the protein may interact with a serine protease, leading to the activation of the prophenoloxidase cascade, a pathway in insects for defense against microbial infection.  (+info)

Antimicrobial activity of human cervical mucus. (4/728)

The antibacterial activity of human cervical mucus (CM) was examined on standardized microbial colonized agar plates (agar diffusion test). In parallel, the lysozyme content of CM was determined by means of a turbidimetric test system in aliquots of the same CM specimens. Suspensions of living lyophilized Micrococcus lysedeikticus were used as bacterial substrate. Testing was performed in a total of 133 CM samples, obtained at mid-cycle from sexually active women from unselected infertile couples with a median age of 30 (range 21-42) years. All mucus specimens showed considerable antibacterial activity with clearly visible circular inhibition zones around the CM-filled holes in the colonized agar plates. Related to the effect of hen's egg white (HEW)-lysozyme on the same plates, the median activity of the CM specimens in the agar diffusion test was equivalent to 33.0 (range 6.4-391.4) microg/ml HEW-lysozyme. However, there was a wide inter-individual range of antibacterial effects of cervical secretions. The cervical index did not significantly influence the outcome of either test. The pH of the endocervical CM also was not correlated with the antibacterial effect. Sexual activity leading to the presence of spermatozoa in CM considerably increased its antibacterial effect. The activity was markedly higher in samples obtained within hours after intercourse compared with those taken after sexual abstinence of >/=5 days (P < 0.05). In microbially colonized CM specimens compared to sterile CM, all obtained under hormonally standardized conditions, the antibacterial activity in the agar plate test was significantly lower (P < 0.05). The results of this pilot study demonstrate the considerable antibacterial activity of human CM.  (+info)

Characterization of Micrococcus antarcticus sp. nov., a psychrophilic bacterium from Antarctica. (5/728)

A Gram-positive, cold-adapted, aerobic, spherical actinobacterium (strain T2T) with a quite low cardinal growth temperature was isolated from Chinese Great-Wall station in Antarctica. Sequence comparisons of the 16S rDNA indicated the isolate to be a phylogenetic member of the genus Micrococcus, family Micrococcaceae, in which it represents a novel lineage. The phylogenetic distinctness of the isolate with respect to the type strains Micrococcus luteus and Micrococcus lylae was supported by DNA-DNA similarity values of less than 40%. Chemotaxonomic properties supported the placement of the isolate in the genus Micrococcus. The diagnostic diamino acid of the cell-wall peptidoglycan is lysine. The predominant menaquinones are MK-8 and MK-8(H2). The G + C content of the DNA of the isolate is 66.4 mol%. Genotypic, morphological and physiological characteristics were used to describe a new species of Micrococcus, for which the name Micrococcus antarcticus is proposed. The type strain is T2T (= AS 1.2372T).  (+info)

Kinetic studies on the phosphorolysis of polynucleotides by polynucleotide phosphorylase. (6/728)

The kinetics of the phosphorolysis of polynucleotide (as differentiated from oligonucleotide) by polynucleotide phosphorylase of Micrococcus luteus has been investigated. Double reciprocal plots of initial velocity against either inorganic phosphate or polynucleotide concentration are linear, and furthermore, the affinity of the enzyme for either substrate is unaffected by the presence of the other. dADP, an analogue of ADP product, is a competitive inhibitor with respect to Pi and polynucleotidy. (Ap)tA-cyclic-p is a competitive inhibitor with respect to Pi. The results are almost identical with both primer-independent (Form-I) and primer-dependent (Form-T) enzymes, although the various kinetic constants differ. On the vasis of these data a rapid equilibrium random Bi Bi mechanism is proposed. The demonstration of two different inhibitor constants for dADP and the difference between the Michaelis and the inhibitor constant for polyadenylic acid in polynucleotide phosphorolysis indicate at least two binding sites for polyadenylic acid and dADP on M. luteus polynucleotide phosphorylase. Its is suggested that in the phosphorolysis of long chain polymers the second binding site permits the polynucleotide to snap right back into position after removal of I mononucleotide unit and thus leads to the observed processive degradation. A general discussion of oligonucleotide and polynucleotide phosphorolysis and the differences between Form-I and Form-T enzymes in de novo synthesis and degradation of polynucleotides is presented.  (+info)

Use of an enzyme-linked lectinsorbent assay to monitor the shift in polysaccharide composition in bacterial biofilms. (7/728)

An enzyme-linked lectinsorbent assay (ELLA) was developed for quantification and characterization of extracellular polysaccharides produced by 1- and 4-day biofilms of 10 bacterial strains isolated from food industry premises. Peroxidase-labeled concanavalin A (ConA) and wheat germ agglutinin (WGA) were used, as they specifically bind to saccharide residues most frequently encountered in biofilms matrices: D-glucose or D-mannose for ConA and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine or N-acetylneuraminic acid for WGA. The ELLA applied to 1- and 4-day biofilms colonizing wells of microtiter plates was able to detect that for Stenotrophomonas maltophilia and to a lesser extent Staphylococcus sciuri, the increase in production of exopolysaccharides over time was not the same for sugars binding with ConA and those binding with WGA. Differences in extracellular polysaccharides produced were observed among strains belonging to the same species. These results demonstrate that ELLA is a useful tool not only for rapid characterization of biofilm extracellular polysaccharides but also, in studies of individual strains, for detection of changes over time in the proportion of the exopolysaccharidic component within the polymeric matrix.  (+info)

The wax ester and constituent fatty alcohol and fatty acid compositions of the psychrophilic bacterium Micrococcus cryophilus grown at 1 or 20 °C have been analysed using packed column and capillary gas-liquid chromatography. The major wax esters were C36, C34 and C32, with a large percentage of mono- and di-unsaturated wax esters (91 to 99 % of the total). When the growth temperature was lowered from 20 to 1 °C the average chain length of the wax esters decreased and their unsaturation increased. The average chain length of the saturated wax esters was less than that of the unsaturated wax esters. The fatty alcohols and fatty acids of the wax esters were mainly C18, with smaller amounts of Cl6, and were straight chain saturated and mono-unsaturated with cis double bonds at positions ∆9 and ∆11. The fatty alcohols had a shorter average chain length and were more saturated than the fatty acids, and contained a higher proportion of cis ∆11 unsaturated isomers. The combination of fatty alcohols and
Hydrocarbon containing compounds like diesel, crude oil and petrol cause environmental pollution. Hydrocarbon contaminated sites contain large amount of microbial community adapted for utilizing these compound as a source of carbon and other metabolic activities. A study was conducted in order to isolate the micro-organism from hydrocarbon contaminated sites for petroleum degradation. The soil sample was collected from the bus terminal of Punjab University, Lahore. The isolate (Micrococcus sp.) was characterized microbiologically by using microbiological techniques such as staining and biochemical testing based on Bergey’s manual. Isolated organism has an ability to degrade the petrol as well as paraffin wax as a sole carbon source. This ability shows clear evidence that genome of this isolate harbors gene for degradation. By combined both properties, we can reduce petroleum product from hydrocarbon impacted environment.   Key words: Petrol degradation, paraffin wax, biochemical
An attempt has been made to develop the genetics of Micrococcus radiodurans by analysing transformation and conjugation processes. The nature of the transformation process in M. radiodurans was studied by investigating the effect of various factors on the efficiency of transformations. M. radiodurans can be transformed by exogenous DNA at a frequency of 10 without special treatment. The presence of glucose or amino acids during growth or transformation had no significant effect on the frequency. Treatment of recipient cells with calcium chloride at the optimum concentration of 30 mM increased the frequency of transformation up to 10,000-fold for some markers, e.g. rifampicin resistance. Magnesium and strontium ions could not replace calcium while sine ions completely inhibited transformation. The efficiency of transformation was also affected by the pH, pH 7.0 being the most effective with CaCl-treated cells. The minimum time required for phenotypic expression varied wiith different markers, ...

Dominant negative myeloid differentiation protein (MyD88), IL-1 receptor-associated kinase (IRAK), NFκB-inducing kinase (NIK), and IκB kinase (IKK) mutant forms completely inhibited micrococcus- and PGN-induced activation of NF-κB and expression of the gene for IL-8. ...
A preparation of ATPase from the membranes of Micrococcus lysodeikticus, solubilized and more than 95% pure, showed two main bands in analytical polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. They did not correspond to isoenzymes because one band could be converted into the other by exposure to a mildly alkaline pH value. The conversion was paralleled by changes in molecular weight, circular dichroism and catalytic properties. Denaturation by pH at 25 degrees C was followed by means of circular dichroism, ultracentrifugation and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. A large conformational transition took place in the acid range with midpoints at about pH = 3.6 (I = 10(-4) M), 4.3 (I = 0.03 M) and 5.3 (I = 0.1 M). The transition was irreversible. Strong aggregation of the protein occurred in this range of pH. The final product was largely random coil, but even at pH 1.5 dissociation into individual subunits was not complete. However, partial dissociation took place at pH 5 (I = 0.028 M). At this pH value the enzyme

The culturability of several actinobacteria is controlled by resuscitation-promoting factors (Rpfs). These are proteins containing a c. 70-residue domain that adopts a lysozyme-like fold. The invariant catalytic glutamate residue found in lysozyme and various bacterial lytic transglycosylases is also conserved in the Rpf proteins. Rpf from Micrococcus luteus, the founder member of this protein family, is indeed a muralytic enzyme, as revealed by its activity in zymograms containing M. luteus cell walls and its ability to (i) cause lysis of Escherichia coli when expressed and secreted into the periplasm; (ii) release fluorescent material from fluorescamine-labelled cell walls of M. luteus; and (iii) hydrolyse the artificial lysozyme substrate, 4-methylumbelliferyl-β-d-N,N,N-triacetylchitotrioside. Rpf activity was reduced but not completely abolished when the invariant glutamate residue was altered. Moreover, none of the other acidic residues in the Rpf domain was absolutely required for ...
Micrococcus luteus is a Gram-positive, to Gram-variable, nonmotile, Coccus, saprotrophic bacterium that belongs to the family Micrococcaceae.
Dormancy among nonsporulating actinobacteria is now a widely accepted phenomenon. In Micrococcus luteus, the resuscitation of dormant cells is caused by a small secreted protein (resuscitation-promoting factor, or Rpf) that is found in spent culture medium. Rpf is encoded by a single essential gene in M. luteus. Homologs of Rpf are widespread among the high G + C Gram-positive bacteria, including mycobacteria and streptomycetes, and most organisms make several functionally redundant proteins. M. luteus Rpf comprises a lysozyme-like domain that is necessary and sufficient for activity connected through a short linker region to a LysM motif, which is present in a number of cell-wall-associated enzymes. Muralytic activity is responsible for resuscitation. In this report, we characterized a number of environmental isolates of M. luteus, including several recovered from amber. There was substantial variation in the predicted rpf gene product. While the lysozyme-like and LysM domains showed little ...

Discovered in 1956 by A. W. Anderson when trying to completely sterilize food through radiation, Deinococcus radiodurans (ATCC number 13939) is one of the extremophilic bacterium of the world. Though it was first called Micrococcus radiodurans, the genus Micrococcus did not quite match all of the characteristics that this microbe exhibited, therefore it was placed in its own genus Deinococcus which most closely matches the genus Thermus. The Greek phrase deino kokkus means terrible berry while the Latin words radius and durare means radiation surviving producing the name Deinococcus radiodurans.. A. W. Anderson and his coworkers were working on a way to sterilize food by using high doses of gamma radiation. They exposed a tin can of meat to a dose of radiation that was thought to be strong enough to kill all known forms of life. However, the meat still spoiled. Puzzled that anything could survive such a dose, they investigated only to find that the microbe D. radiodurans was the cause. This ...

The isolation and identification of food pathogens from freshly milled palm oil as well as the effect of steam sterilization on some quality parameters of palm oil was evaluated. Microbial isolations and quality parameters were carried out at day 0, day 14 and day 28. Biochemical parameters such as Peroxide value, Anisidine value, Free fatty acid, Deterioration of bleachibility index (DOBI) and Carotene value was analyzed in the same samples using the digital Palmoiltester. The most frequently isolated bacteria from the unsterilized samples were Pseudomonas aerugenosa, Bacillus subtilis, Enterococcus aerogenes, Staphylococcus saprophyticus and Micrococcus varians while the most frequently isolated fungal species were Aspergillus niger aggregate (IMI number 503810), Cochliobolus sp. (anamorphic state: Curvularia) (IMI number 503811), Penicillium citrinum (IMI number 503812) and a yeast, Meyerozyma guilliermondii (IMI number 503813). The fungal count in the

Hydrocarbon utilizing bacteria were isolated from diesel impacted sites at the University of Port Harcourt using the vapour phase transfer method. The isolates were identified as Bacillus, Pseudomonas, Acinetobacter, Serratia, and Micrococcus species. Examination of cultures supplemented with glucose revealed that the total viable counts ranged from 1.7 x 104 to 5.9 x 105 cfu/ml. For cultures supplemented with kerosene the total viable counts ranged from 1.18 x 104 to 3.1 x 105 cfu/ml. Bacillus spp. and Micrococcus spp. gave the highest and lowest counts respectively in both media types within 96 h. The other isolates had counts in between these ranges in the respective supplemented media. The growth of the isolates in mineral salts solution supplemented with glucose or kerosene resulted in turbidity of the broth as compared to clear media solutions in controls. Higher turbidity was recorded in media supplemented with glucose than kerosene, and this was reflected in the total viable counts ...
Using the selective fractionation technique, a group of researchers at Brazils National Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory (LNLS) in Campinas were able to select silver nanoparticles of different sizes obtained from the same batch chemical reaction. They then evaluated the effect of these nanoparticles on different bacterial strains: Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermis and Micrococcus lysodeikticus. They found that smaller nanoparticles inhibited the growth of these bacteria more effectively than larger ones. The results of this work, Size-selective silver nanoparticles: future of biomedical devices with enhanced bactericidal properties, are featured on the cover of issue No. 33 of the Journal of Materials Chemistry.. Several scientific challenges must still be solved before silver nanoparticles can be converted into drugs. One of these challenges is in their toxicity, since it is necessary to ascertain how these nanoparticles interact with living cells, explains ...

Bacillus Mucilaginosus is also called silicate bacterium, whose important characteristic can break down the silicate and aluminum silicate and the potassium, silica in the minerals such as feldspar, mica and also can break down the phosphorous in apatite.. Bacillus mucilaginosus has the function of dissolving phosphorus, releasing potassium and silicon, fixing nitrogen. At the same time, it can also secrete natural plant hormones and a lot of enzymes, which can increase crop resistance to some diseases.. At present, this kind of bacteria is the best strain as biological fertilizer to promote the conversion of invalid phosphorus and potassium in soil and increase crop yields. ...
An investigation was conducted to isolate and characterize pathogenic bacteria in the gut of swimming crab (Callinectes) obtained from Lagos lagoon (28±2oC) and market frozen samples (0oC). The log10 of cfu/ml total value of 7.2 and 4.83 cfu/ml was obtained from fresh lagoon and market samples respectively. Pathogens isolated were Bacillus cereus, Escherichia coli, Proteus vulgaris, Salmonella sp, Streptococcus agalactiae, Vibrio sp, Staphylococcus aeureus and Micrococcus sp. Escherichia coli and Bacillus subtilis were more preponderant than other pathogens with log10 cfu/ml values of 5.90 and 3.0 (for Lagoon and market samples) and 5.81 and 4.47 (for lagoon and market samples) respectively. However, the log10 of cfu/ml for market samples for Bacillus subtilis was higher than Escherichia coli. On blood agar supplemented with sheep red blood cells, most isolates except few were ß- and α-haemolytic, demonstrating that they could be pathogenic strains. The degree of haemolysis were Bacillus ...

abstract = {BACKGROUND: Two NF-kappaB signaling pathways, Toll and immune deficiency (imd), are required for survival to bacterial infections in Drosophila. In response to septic injury, these pathways mediate rapid transcriptional activation of distinct sets of effector molecules, including antimicrobial peptides, which are important components of a humoral defense response. However, it is less clear to what extent macrophage-like hemocytes contribute to host defense. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: In order to dissect the relative importance of humoral and cellular defenses after septic injury with three different gram-positive bacteria (Micrococcus luteus, Enterococcus faecalis, Staphylococcus aureus), we used latex bead pre-injection to ablate macrophage function in flies wildtype or mutant for various Toll and imd pathway components. We found that in all three infection models a compromised phagocytic system impaired fly survival--independently of concomitant Toll or imd pathway activation. ...

In this study, we examined the bacterial communities on the upper arms of 8 volunteers before and after inoculation with H. ducreyi. The microbiomes were similar to those of reported forearm microbiomes (1, 2, 5). At preinfection, we found the skin of the deltoid region to be largely dominated by Actinobacteria, Firmicutes, Proteobacteria, and Bacteroidetes. Similarly, a recent study on two human volunteers who were asked not to bathe 3 days prior to sampling identified these 4 phyla and Cyanobacteria on the upper arm (38). In contrast, the same study found low levels of Propionibacterium and Staphylococcus on the upper arm, whereas these genera comprised a large proportion of our volunteers microbiomes. Both studies identified moderate levels of Corynebacterium on the upper arm, and we found moderate levels of Streptococcus, Paracoccus, and Micrococcus species. We did not ask our participants to refrain from bathing prior to infection; perhaps hygiene and person-to-person variations ...
Recent work by Dimtroglou et al (2007) demonstrated that Bio-Mos significantly reduced the bacterial load in the gut of both rainbow trout and sea bream by reducing the total aerobically cultivated bacteria. In the case of sea bream, the percentage contribution of the various aerobically cultivated bacterial families to the total count was not significantly altered between the Bio-Mos fed fish and the controls. However, in the case of rainbow trout, the Bio-Mos fed fish had reduced numbers of Micrococcus spp., Staphylococcus spp., Aeromonas/ Vibrio spp and other unidentified Gram + bacteria. Increases were also seen in Acinetobacteria spp., Pseudomonads spp. and Enterobacteria spp ...
