  • strains
  • The strains of Neisseria gonorrhoeae are fast becoming resisted to Ceftriaxone and cefixime, which are very effective control of gonorrhea, but are proofing to be ineffective on these strains. (b2b-transport.ru)
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS--Four thousand and eighty-six strains of Neisseria gonorrhoeae isolated, of which 432 were PPNG, were examined for susceptibilities to penicillin and tetracycline by an agar dilution method using the breakpoint minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of 1 and 10 mg/1 respectively.

  • PPNG
  • OBJECTIVE--To study the changes in penicillinase-producing (PPNG) and high-level tetracycline resistant (TRNG) Neisseria gonorrhoeae isolated in Hong Kong associated with emerging quinolone resistance (QRNG) over a two year period from November 1992 to October 1994. (bmj.com)
  • Isolate
  • Both are isolated from similar infections, including endocervical and rectal infections, neonatal conjunctivitis, and lymphadenitis.N. cinerea has even been isolated on gonococcal selective media specifically made to isolate N. gonorrhoeae. (wikipedia.org)
  • usually
  • Because relapse or reinfection with C. trachomatis or N. gonorrhoeae usually does not occur in persons with persistent cases of MPC, other non-microbiologic determinants (e.g., inflammation in the zone of ectopy) might be involved. (wikipedia.org)
  • known
  • N. gonorrhoeae is able to pull 100,000 times its own weight, and it has been claimed that the pili used to do so are the strongest biological motor known to date, exerting one nanonewton. (wikipedia.org)
  • main
  • Overuse of penicillin contributed to Neisseria gonorrhoeae developing high resistance to penicillin through two main mechanisms: chromosomally mediated resistance (CMRNG) and penicillinase-mediated resistance (PPNG). (wikipedia.org)
  • type
  • Penicillinase-mediated resistance in N. gonorrhoeae is mediated by the plasmid borne TEM-1 type beta-lactamase which falls under the third general mechanism for beta-lactam resistance. (wikipedia.org)
  • cell
  • The cell wall of N. gonorrhoeae contains porins which are holes within the cell wall in which some molecules are able to diffuse into or out of the cell membrane. (wikipedia.org)
