• strain
  • Norwegian researchers in 2013 found a M. luteus strain that synthesizes a pigment that absorbs wavelengths of light from 350 to 475 nano-meters. (wikipedia.org)
  • SUBSTANCE: strain Micrococcus luteus, deposited under registration number B-12410 in The All-Russia Collection of Industrial Microorganisms of GosNIIGenetika FSUE is the producer of the site-specific methyl-dependent endonuclease MluVI. (russianpatents.com)
  • Survival
  • After the catalase gene was knock-downed, the H 2 O 2 level of the aphid was up-regulated significantly 12 h post M. luteus infection, the bacterial load of ds Cat -injected pea aphid was about half that of ds GFP -injected pea aphid 24 h post M. luteus infection, but the survival rate of aphids had no change after M. luteus infection.

  • infection
  • It can be difficult to identify Micrococcus as the cause of an infection, since the organism is a normally present in skin microflora, and the genus is seldom linked to disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • cells
  • 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. (aber.ac.uk)
  • Action of mycosubtilin and of bacillomycin L on Micrococcus luteus cells and protoplasts: influence of the polarity of the antibiotics upon their action on the bacterial cytoplasmic membrane. (wikipedia.org)
  • activity
  • 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. (aber.ac.uk)
  • Its antibacterial activity is quite limited to bacterias such as Microccocus luteus. (wikipedia.org)
  • forms
  • M. luteus is coagulase negative, bacitracin susceptible, and forms bright yellow colonies on nutrient agar. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • M. luteus is considered a contaminant in sick patients and is resistant by slowing of major metabolic processes and induction of unique genes. (lukejerram.com)
  • Micrococcus is generally thought to be a saprotrophic or commensal organism, though it can be an opportunistic pathogen, particularly in hosts with compromised immune systems, such as HIV patients. (wikipedia.org)
  • In rare cases, death of immunocompromised patients has occurred from pulmonary infections caused by Micrococcus. (wikipedia.org)
