• sessile
  • complex, sessile communities of bacteria embedded in an organic polymer matrix . (nih.gov)
  • We propose that the bacteriostatic activity of clarithromycin is accentuated when fosfoymcin is present, as it may allow better penetration into the biofilm matrix, allowing fosfomycin access to sessile bacteria near the surface of attachment. (biomedcentral.com)
  • bacterial
  • Reversible association between pradofloxacin and DNA gyrase or DNA topoisomerase IV in the target bacteria results in inhibition of these enzymes and rapid death of the bacterial cell. (wikipedia.org)
  • Micrococcaceae
  • Ættkvíslinni Staphylococcus var áður skipað í ættina Micrococcaceae en hefur nú verið skipað í ættina Staphylococcaceae innan fylkingarinnar Firmicutes en míkrókokkarnir teljast býsna fjarskyldir (eru í fylkingunni Actinobacteria ). (wikipedia.org)
  • Historically, the genera Staphylococcus and Micrococcus were placed together with the genera Stomatococcus and Planococcus in the family Micrococcaceae containing grampositive, catalase-positive cocci. (asmscience.org)
  • carriage
  • I could show strong physical closeness of pets with their owners in households and the high emotional importance of this relationship, but I did not observe any evident impact of pets on carriage of MDR staphylococci in their owners. (unibas.ch)
  • dogs
  • Between March 2008 and December 2009 I collected nasal swabs from 978 people and nasal and ear swabs from 256 dogs and 277 cats and checked them for the presence of staphylococci. (unibas.ch)
  • rapid
  • Results: Rapid and reliable identification of staphylococci by matrix assisted laser desorption ionisation - time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) was a pre-requisite to understand the distribution of Staphylococcus spp. (unibas.ch)
  • skin
  • A hot spot can manifest and spread rapidly in a matter of hours as secondary Staphylococcus infection causes the top layers of the skin to break down and as pus becomes trapped in the hair. (wikipedia.org)
  • presence
  • In the presence of an EPI, the MICs of P. aeruginosa mutants decreased markedly, those of E. coli mutants decreased moderately, and those of S. pseudintermedius mutants were unaffected. (biomedcentral.com)
  • found
  • Staphylococcus has been found to be a nectar-inhabiting microbe. (wikipedia.org)
  • Regarding resistance mechanisms, only one QRDR mutation in gyrA was found in all of the 10 mutants of E. coli and in 4 of the 10 mutants of P. aeruginosa , whereas mutations in both grlA and gyrA were found in 3 mutants and one mutation in grlA was found in 2 mutants among the 10 mutants of S. pseudintermedius .
