OBJECTIVE To investigate the characteristics of biological, and clinical epidemiology of acquired pneumonia caused by a new type of Klebsiella, K. planticola. METHOD 9 strains of K. planticola were isolated from respiratory samples of patients, in vitro, biological and serologic identification were done, in vivo, infected animal models were also evaluated. Clinical epidemiological inquiries were also performed. RESULT 9 strains biological features were different from those of the other Klebsiella. The 9 patients ages were over forty and the primary disease was the third type tuberculosis of lungs. Using of antituberculosis drugs for long term as well as penicillins might be the predisposing factors, corticosteroids were used in 3 of the 9 patients, Combined infection with other pathogens in addition to K. planticola occurred in 8 patients, in 7/8, Candida albicans was identified. Drug sensitive tests show that all of them were resistant to penicillins and sensitive to the second and third
A GE BACTERIUM THAT COULD HAVE KILLED ALL PLANTS Dr. Elaine Inghams Testimony (Executive Summary) before the (New Zealand) Royal Commission on Genetic Modification Executive Summary February 2001 Executive Summary of DR. Inghams Testimony: Genetically engineered organisms have not been adequately assessed for their environmental or human health effects. It is inadequate to subject ORGANISMS to the tested [sic] required for non-living chemical pesticides, and conclude that there will be no adverse or risky effects from release of those organisms based on that testing. A graduate student of mine, no longer working in the field of engineered organisms, and I did some research on a particular engineered bacterium that had been approved by the USEPA for field testing. No environmental effects were detected during pesticide or toxicity testing with this organism. However, Michael Holmes discovered that the engineered bacterium, Klebsiella planticola with a additional alcohol gene, killed all the ...

This is a retrospective chart review. This proposed study aims to document the risk factors for quinolone resistance in bloodstream isolates of Klebsiella species. Additionally, the adequacy of empiric antibiotic therapy for Klebsiella bloodstream infections will be assessed. This research is (c) important because identification of risk factors may allow earlier initiation of appropriate therapy in patients infected with these bacteria. Additionally, we will identify whether horizontal spread is responsible for this increasing trend ...
The fermentation process didnt kill the modified K. planticola--it was still there, ready to turn dead plant material into alcohol. The bigger problem? It didnt even wait until the plants were dead to start. The normal K. planticola bacterium result in a benign layer of slime on the living root systems it inhabits, but the engineered version would also be producing alcohol in this slime--with levels as high as 17 parts per million, and anything beyond one or two parts of alcohol per million is lethal to all known plant life. So the engineered K. planticola basically gives all plant life it touches severe alcohol poisoning, putting them more than 10 times over the lethal limit of fucked up. Like a frat house during pledge week, K. planticola would force all new plants it encountered to drink well beyond their reasonable limits. But unlike frat house rushes, its not just freshman idiots who are affected, its everybody. So maybe that analogy isnt entirely accurate: Its more like a bleak ...

2,3-Butanediol (2,3-BDO) is a promising bio-based chemical because of its wide industrial applications. Previous studies on microbial production of 2,3-BDO has focused on sugar fermentation. Alternatively, biodiesel-derived crude glycerol can be used as a cheap resource for 2,3-BDO production; however, a considerable formation of 1,3-propanediol (1,3-PDO) and low concentration, productivity, and yield of 2,3-BDO from glycerol fermentation are limitations. Here, we report a high production of 2,3-BDO from crude glycerol using the engineered Klebsiella oxytoca M3 in which pduC (encoding glycerol dehydratase large subunit) and ldhA (encoding lactate dehydrogenase) were deleted to reduce the formation of 1,3-PDO and lactic acid. In fed-batch fermentation with the parent strain K. oxytoca M1, crude glycerol was more effective than pure glycerol as a carbon source in 2,3-BDO production (59.4 vs. 73.8 g/L) and by-product reduction (1,3-PDO, 8.9 vs. 3.7 g/L; lactic acid, 18.6 vs. 9.8 g/L). When the double
An armA-producing Klebsiella oxytoca isolate, strain 157, was detected after screening of 447 extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae isolates in China. K. oxytoca 157 was resistant to aminoglycosides, ciprofloxacin and most β-lactams. Resistance to aminoglycosides and β-lactams could be transferred to recipient Escherichia coli by conjugation. armA, bla CTX-M-15 and bla TEM-1 genes were detected in K. oxytoca 157 and transconjugant E. coli strain 600(pEC157). Mutation of aa 87 in GyrA was found in K. oxytoca 157. A plasmid of ∼55 kb was extracted from K. oxytoca 157(pKO157) and E. coli 600(pEC157). Southern blot hybridization confirmed that the armA, bla CTX-M-15 and bla TEM-1 genes were all located on this conjugative plasmid (pEC157). PCR mapping was also performed to investigate the genetic environment of armA. The armA gene was found to be flanked by the same putative transposable elements as reported previously in E. coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Citrobacter freundii

In the study presented here, the performance of FTIR and MALDI-TOF MS for typing clinical Klebsiella isolates was evaluated with regard to the discriminatory power of these rapid analysis methods. WGS was employed as a reference to analyze a set of Klebsiella strains recovered from clinical specimens. The adjusted Rand index was used to determine the congruency of the respective spectrum-based typing method in comparison to the reference (31).. High agreement between FTIR- and WGS-based clustering was obtained in our study. This is in line with reports that found good discrimination of other clinically or environmentally relevant Gram-negative organisms, such as Y. enterocolitica (11, 36), E. coli (10), and Klebsiella oxytoca (37). These findings might reflect the fact that FTIR spectra are prominently shaped by components of the Gram-negative cell wall or capsule molecules and that high diversity among these structures (e.g., O antigens or capsule types) underlies successful discrimination by ...

The genus Klebsiella belongs to the tribe Klebsiellae, a member of the family Enterobacteriaceae. The organisms are named after Edwin Klebs, a 19th century German microbiologist.
In the late 1980s R. planticola was genetically modified by inserting a plasmid from Zymomonas mobilis. This plasmid codes for the enzyme pyruvate decarboxylase which, along with alcohol dehydrogenase already present in the bacteria allow it to produce ethanol. The bacteria already does produce ethanol when metabolizing hexoses and pentoses, but very inefficiently. R. planticola was chosen to receive this gene as it already had metabolic pathways to breakdown pentose sugars such as xylose, which is a main component of agricultural and forest residues.[22][23] The results showed that the genetically modified strain could produce ethanol but were killed at concentrations of ethanol greater than 5%. The modified strain also produced more ethanol at lower pH (5.4) and ethanol production decreased as pH increased.[22]. In the early 1990s a biotech company set out to solve a problem: how to destroy crop residue safely. Some crops residues harbor plant pathogens. Burning is occasionally used to ...

Urinary tract infection (UTI) constitutes a serious health problem that affects millions of people each year. UTI is the most common infection in patients with indwelling urinary catheters, and the incidence of UTI in this patient group is ∼100% within a month. Between 15% and 25% of patients in general hospitals will have a urinary catheter in place sometime during their stay (37). Urinary catheters are also extensively used in aged-care facilities. Unfortunately, catheters are extremely prone to bacterial biofilm formation. In the United States, catheter-associated UTI was estimated to cause close to 1 million additional hospital days per year (34). E. coli and Klebsiella are the top two species in UTI and are generally excellent biofilm formers (12). Iron is essential for bacterial growth, and bacteria like E. coli and Klebsiella species possess a battery of iron uptake systems to cope with low-iron environments like urine. Fur is the central regulator of these systems. Fur has a ...

Selective laser melting (SLM) is an additive technology that allows for the production of precisely designed complex structures for energy absorbing applications from a wide range of metallic materials. Geometrical imperfections of the SLM fabricated lattice structures, which form one of the many thin struts, can lead to a great difference in prediction of their behavior. This article deals with the prediction of lattice structure mechanical properties under dynamic loading using finite element method (FEA) with inclusion of geometrical imperfections of the SLM process. Such properties are necessary to know especially for the application of SLM fabricated lattice structures in automotive or aerospace industries. Four types of specimens from AlSi10Mg alloy powder material were manufactured using SLM for quasi-static mechanical testing and determination of lattice structure mechanical properties for the FEA material model, for optical measurement of geometrical accuracy, and for low-velocity impact

Klebsiella oxytoca produces sucrose isomerase which catalyses the conversion of sucrose to isomaltulose, a new generation of sugar. From the previous study, palI gene from Klebsiella oxytoca was succesfully isolated from sapodilla fruit (Manilkara zapota). The full-length palI gene sequence of Klebsiella oxytoca was cloned in E. coli DH5α. The deduced amino acid sequence shows 498 residues which includes conserved motif for sucrose isomerisation {sup 325}RLDRD{sup 329} and 97% identical to palI gene from Klebsiella sp. LX3 (GenBank:AAK82938.1). This fragment was succesfullly ligated into the expression vector pET-32b using overlap-extension PCR and cloned in Escherichia coli BL21 (DE3) pLysS. DNA sequencing result shows that palI gene of Klebsiella oxytoca was inserted in-frame in pET-32b. This is the first report on cloning of palI gene from Klebsiella oxytoca. ...

Various selective media were assessed for their ability to detect and differentiate Klebsiella oxytoca and Escherichia coli in environmental water samples. Only two, Membrane Lauryl Sulphate agar and Deoxycholate Agar, could differentiate the two coliforms from each other and from the background heterotrophs in water and this was a consequence of E. colis ability to grow at 44°C and 37°C whereas Kl. oxytoca could only grow at 37°C. Modified M‐FC medium effectively differentiated Kl. oxytoca but not E. coli in environmental samples. Other media characterized the different coliforms in pure culture but failed to do likewise in environmental samples. For example, pure cultures of E. coli fluoresced when MUG was added to the medium but single colonies on a mixed species plate failed to do so. MT7 agar distinguished the two coliforms from water heterotrophs but not from each other.. Full text not available from this repository.. ...
A team of US researchers has discovered that three different species of Klebsiella bacteria can cause life-threatening infections in hospital patients and that all three share genes that confer resistance to the most commonly used antibiotics. The study, published this week in mSphere®, an open-access journal of the American Society for Microbiology, improves physicians understanding of Klebsiella infections and could point toward better ways to fight multi-drug resistant strains of these bacteria.
Other antibiotics used to treat susceptible isolates include ampicillin/sulbactam, piperacillin/tazobactam, ticarcillin/clavulanate, ceftazidime, cefepime, levofloxacin, norfloxacin, moxifloxacin, mer... more
Bacteria of the genus Klebsiella are widely distributed in nature, in the soil and in water. They are also part of the normal flora of the intestinal tract, but usually in low numbers compared with E. coli. Klebsiella, especially strains of the species K. pneumonia, are opportunistic pathogens that can cause pneumonia, urinary tract infections, and bacteremia. In recent years there has been an increase in Klebsiella infections, especially in hospitals and due to multiple-antibiotic resistant strains. The most striking difference between most strains of Klebsiella and its close relatives E. coli and Salmonella is that Klebsiella cells have a thick coat of slime or extracellular polysaccharide which is called a capsule. The capsule protects the cells from dessication, and may also protect them from phagocytosis when they are in an animal host. Surprisingly, many strains of Klebsiella can fix nitrogen, i.e., they can reduce atmospheric nitrogen to ammonia and amino acids.Strain 342 was isolated ...
A low-molecular-mass cytotoxin produced by Klebsiella oxytoca isolated previously from patients with antibiotic-associated haemorrhagic enterocolitis was purified, and its biological and chemical properties were elucidated. The toxin inhibited the syntheses of DNA and RNA by HEp-2 cells dose-dependently, whereas protein synthesis was only slightly inhibited, as measured by the incorporation of radioactive precursors. When synchronously cultured HEp-2 cells were examined in the presence of cytotoxin, inhibition of DNA synthesis occurred promptly within 5 h, but cell-rounding, the earliest visible morphological change, was not observed until 6 h after exposure. The intracellular levels of ATP decreased with an approximately similar time course. These results suggest that cytotoxicity toward HEp-2 cells is primarily due to the inhibitory effect of the cytotoxin on nucleic acid synthesis, possibly on DNA synthesis. Cell rounding and cell death were induced even in the absence of the cytotoxin after
His mother says: I have never gone on to have another child because my son is a full-time job, but he is a beautiful boy.. The infection that the couple claims their son had is called klebsiella oxytoca and the hospital is aware of a spate of incidents relating to it at the time. Klebsiella oxytoca causes infection in various parts of the body; it is a common infection and can be transferred from patient to patient. One of the resultant conditions is brain damage and sometimes renal failure.. The hospital has denied negligence and says the Health Authority said it was satisfied with the control measures in place at the time.. The mother said they felt let down by the hospital as they were certain the infection is the reason for her sons difficulties..

The biochemical classification of the Klebsiella proposed by Cowan, Steel, Shaw, and Duguid (1960) has been applied to 50 strains isolated as the pure or predominant growth from sputum, and Klebsiella species have been correlated with the severity of the chest infection in the patient. A modification in nomenclature is suggested.
Raoultella planticola was originally considered to be a member of environmental Klebsiella. The clinical significance of R. planticola is still not well known. We describe the first case of necrotizing fasciitis involving the chest and abdominal wall caused by R. planticola. The identity of the organism was confirmed using 16S rRNA sequencing. The patient was successfully treated with the appropriate antibiotics combined with operative drainage and debridement. R. planticola had been described as environmental species, but should be suspected in extensive necrotizing fasciitis after minor trauma in mild to moderate immunocompromised patients.

Klebsiella oxytoca is primarily a health care-associated pathogen acquired from environmental sources. During October 2006-March 2011, a total of 66 patients in a hospital in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, acquired class A extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing K. oxytoca with 1 of 2 related pulsed-field gel electrophoresis patterns. New cases continued to occur despite reinforcement of infection control practices, prevalence screening, and contact precautions for colonized/infected patients. Cultures from handwashing sinks in the intensive care unit yielded K. oxytoca with identical pulsed-field gel electrophoresis patterns to cultures from the clinical cases. No infections occurred after implementation of sink cleaning 3×/day, sink drain modifications, and an antimicrobial stewardship program. In contrast, a cluster of 4 patients infected with K. oxytoca in a geographically distant medical ward without contaminated sinks was contained with implementation of active screening and contact ...

Klebsiella oxytoca (K. oxytoca) is a Gram-negative microbe generally associated with community and hospitalacquired infections. Due to its clinical significance, we evaluated the effect of biofield treatment on phenotype and biotype characteristics of K. oxytoca (ATCC 43165). The study was performed into three groups i.e. C (control), T1 (treatment, revived); and T2 (treatment, lyophilized). Subsequently, groups T1 and T2 were received biofield treatment and control group was remained as untreated. The antimicrobial sensitivity results showed 3.33% and 6.67% alteration in antimicrobials susceptibility in group T1 cells on day 5 and 10, respectively, and 3.33% alteration in antimicrobials susceptibility was observed in group T2 cells on day 10 as compared to control. The sensitivity patterns of cefazolin were changed from resistant (R) to intermediate (I) on day 5, and resistance (R) to susceptible (S) on day 10, in T1 cells of K. oxytoca. The MIC value of cefazolin was decreased by 2-fold in ...
Introduction: Klebsiella pneumoniae is one of Klebsiella species. K. pneumoniae is one of the most important bacteria causing nosocomial infections. This bacterium threatens public health and leads to increased hospital costs and mortality rate. The purpose of this study was to determine the pattern of antibiotic resistance in K. pneumoniae in nosocomial infections.Methods: This study was performed on 51 samples of Klebsiella isolates from 500 patients in three units of Aleshtar hospital in 9 months. The antibiotic resistance of K. pneumoniae to 18 antibiotics was performed by Kirby Bauer disk diffusion method.Results: The frequency of K. pneumonia among 500 samples was determined 51 cases (10.2%). The largest number of K. pneumoniae was isolated from the infectious unit (49.02%). The frequency of K. pneumoniae based on the source of infection for urine was 22 cases (43.14%), sputum 17 (33.33%), stool 6 (11.77%), wound 4 (7.84%), blood 2 (3.92%), and cerebrospinal fluid 0 (0%), respectively. K.
Klebsiella is a genus of nonmotile, Gram-negative, oxidase-negative, rod-shaped bacteria with a prominent polysaccharide-based capsule.. Klebsiella species are found everywhere in nature. This is thought to be due to distinct sublineages developing specific niche adaptations, with associated biochemical adaptations which make them better suited to a particular environment. They can be found in water, soil, plants, insects, animals, and humans. Klebsiella is named after German-Swiss microbiologist Edwin Klebs (1834-1913). Carl Friedlander described Klebsiella bacillus which is why it was termed Friedlander bacillus for many years. The members of the genus Klebsiella are a part of the human and animals normal flora in the nose, mouth and intestines. The species of Klebsiella are all gram-negative and non-motile. They tend to be shorter and thicker when compared to others in the Enterobacteriaceae family. The cells are rods in shape and generally measures 0.3 to 1.5 µm wide by 0.5 to 5.0 µm ...

Recently the emergence of pan-resistant bacterial pathogens was published in The Lancet Infectious Disease, online August 11, 2010. In this study 107 enterobacteria isolates from UK, India and Pakistan harbouring a broad spectrum metallo-β- lactamase 1 (called New Delhi metallo-β-lactamase 1; NDM-1) were found to be highly resistant against most antibiotics. Two Klebsiella isolates from the UK have been shown to be resistant against all available antibiotics. These isolates or the plasmids conveying resistance were shown to have been transferred also from country-to-country.. This is the true beginning of a post-antibiotic era, which will have a dramatic impact on our current urological practice. Enterobacteria are the most important species causing urinary tract infections (UTI). Most of the isolates harbouring this NDM-1 enzyme also were from community-acquired UTI..

The problem of solid waste is an issue of global importance due to the socio-environmental and unsanitary conditions that influence negatively the quality of life of citizens and the ecosystem. The current reality forces to implement a kind of strategies that contemplate the investigation of microorganisms as well as their capacity to biodegrade these residues. Bacteriological contamination was characterized in the solid waste generated within the central field of the Autonomous University of Chiriquí, Province of Chiriquí, Panama. This study was classified with a mixed approach, correlational descriptive scope and non-experimental design. The sample corresponded to 306 bags of solid waste collected in five randomly places. The methods of analysis were divided into field and laboratory sampling. The techniques used were quartering and identification of enterobacteria present in these residues. It was obtained as results that the bacterium with more frequency was Klebsiella sp. with 33%, ...
