• Genome
  • Extrapolation suggested that the gene reservoir in the S. agalactiae pan-genome is vast and that new unique genes will continue to be identified even after sequencing hundreds of genomes. (wikipedia.org)
  • agar
  • Table: Medically relevant streptococci (not all are alpha hemolytic) When alpha hemolysis (α-hemolysis) is present, the agar under the colony is dark and greenish. (wikipedia.org)
  • Granadaene, can be extracted from cultures of S.agalactiae in granada broth (granada medium without agar) with 0.1 M potassium hydroxide (KOH) and purified by size-exclusion chromatography on Sephadex LH using DMSO-0.1%TFA. (wikipedia.org)
  • bacterial
  • In addition to streptococcal pharyngitis (strep throat), certain Streptococcus species are responsible for many cases of pink eye, meningitis, bacterial pneumonia, endocarditis, erysipelas, and necrotizing fasciitis (the 'flesh-eating' bacterial infections). (wikipedia.org)
  • Granadaene
  • Granadaene is an organic compound produced by S.agalactiae. (wikipedia.org)
  • It has also been proposed that granadaene is indeed the hemolysin of S.agalactiae, and because the GBS hemolysin is a broad-spectrum cytolysin able to destroy many eukaryotic cells, it is considered an important virulence factor for GBS. (wikipedia.org)
  • In addition to S.agalactiae the presence of granadaene has been reported in Propionibacterium jensenii, where it can cause defects such as red spots in some cheeses. (wikipedia.org)
  • cause
  • Streptococcus agalactiae was found to be the cause of approximately 1% of urinary tract infections in a London teaching hospital in the 2 years studied. (bmj.com)
  • Streptococci can cause a range of diseases, from the less serious but common sore throats and skin infections to life threatening conditions such as necrotising fasciitis. (novusbio.com)
  • human
  • Streptococci form part of the normal human flora that resides on the skin, and can also colonise the respiratory, gastrointestinal, and genitourinary tracts. (novusbio.com)
