  • Streptomyces
  • Streptomyces scabies or Streptomyces scabiei is a streptomycete bacterium species found in soils around the world. (wikipedia.org)
  • Several other species of Streptomyces cause similar diseases to S. scabies but other, more closely related species, do not. (wikipedia.org)
  • The genome of S. scabies has been sequenced and is the largest Streptomyces genome known so far. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 1948 Waksman and Henrici used the name Streptomyces scabies to describe the species and this name was revived in 1989 by Lambert and Loria, who bought together 12 different strains that formed one homogeneous group. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 1997 the name was changed to Streptomyces scabiei following a grammatical convention as set out in Rule 12c of the International Code of Nomenclature of Bacteria. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 2007 Lambert and Loria recommended that the original name of Streptomyces scabies be kept due to its long-established use and it continues to be used today. (wikipedia.org)
  • Streptomyces scabies is a streptomycete bacteria which means it forms a mycelium made of hyphae, a growth form more usually associated with fungi. (wikipedia.org)
  • All Streptomyces genomes sequenced so far are relatively large for bacteria, but the genome of S. scabies is the largest. (wikipedia.org)
  • So far, ten species belonging to this genus have been found to be pathogenic to plants: S. scabiei S. acidiscabies S. europaeiscabiei S. luridiscabiei S. niveiscabiei S. puniciscabiei S. reticuliscabiei S. stelliscabiei S. turgidiscabies (scab disease in potatoes) S. ipomoeae (soft rot disease in sweet potatoes) Streptomyces is the largest antibiotic-producing genus, producing antibacterial, antifungal, and antiparasitic drugs, and also a wide range of other bioactive compounds, such as immunosuppressants. (wikipedia.org)
  • acidiscabies
  • The most widespread species other than S. scabies are S. turgidiscabies and S. acidiscabies, which can be distinguished based on their morphology, the way they utilise food sources and their 16S RNA sequences. (wikipedia.org)
  • Unlike S. scabies, S. acidiscabies is predominantly seed-borne rather than soil-borne and be suppressed using insecticides and nematicides, suggesting that microfauna play a role in its transmission. (wikipedia.org)
  • Streptomycetes are infrequent pathogens, though infections in humans, such as mycetoma, can be caused by S. somaliensis and S. sudanensis, and in plants can be caused by S. caviscabies, S. acidiscabies, S. turgidiscabies and S. scabies. (wikipedia.org)
  • parasitic
  • It is mainly used in humans in the treatment of onchocerciasis (river blindness), but is also effective against other worm infestations (such as strongyloidiasis, ascariasis, trichuriasis, filariasis and enterobiasis), and some epidermal parasitic skin diseases, including scabies. (wikipedia.org)
  • More recent evidence supports its use against parasitic arthropods and insects: Mites such as scabies: It is usually limited to cases that prove to be resistant to topical treatments or that present in an advanced state (such as Norwegian scabies). (wikipedia.org)
  • lotion
  • If you're diagnosed with scabies, your doctor will prescribe a medicated lotion such as permethrin or crotamiton, which can go by the brand names Elimite, Acticin or Eurax. (ehow.com)
  • It has also been used as pharmaceutical treatment for lice and scabies, formulated as a shampoo or lotion. (wikipedia.org)
  • eggs
  • The manager should be making sure that everyone is treated at the same time and that adequate care is taken to eradicate all scabies and eggs from clothing and bed linen, where they can otherwise lurk and reinfect people. (netdoctor.co.uk)
  • genome
  • The genome contains a pathogenicity island containing the genes required for S. scabies to infect plants, and which can be transferred between different species. (wikipedia.org)
  • The genome sequence of S. scabies, a member of the genus with the ability to cause potato scab disease, has been determined at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. (wikipedia.org)
  • rashes
  • Scabies starts out as itch on the skin, along with the formation of angry, pimple-like rashes. (mercola.com)
  • The rashes that come with scabies can occur in numerous parts of your body, but it is mostly found in warm areas, as this is where the mites usually thrive. (mercola.com)
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Pharmaceutical medications for scabies usually have hidden risks, as they are mostly loaded with toxic ingredients, such as permethrin. (mercola.com)
  • linens
  • Mites can live for about 2 to 3 days in clothing, bedding, or dust, making it possible to catch scabies from people who share the same infected bed, linens, or towels. (kidshealth.org)
  • It's also possible to get scabies from infected linens and clothing since scabies can live for 2 to 3 days away from human skin. (kidshealth.org)
  • But because the mites can live for several days in clothing, bedding, or dust, scabies can spread when people share infected bed, linens, or towels. (rchsd.org)
  • intense
  • It's all very well for a stand-in manager to say stop making a fuss, but apart from the antisocial stigma of scabies, the itching really is very unpleasant and intense, especially when in bed at night due to the heat. (netdoctor.co.uk)
  • areas
  • If a person with scabies scratches the itchy areas of skin, it increases the chance that the injured skin will also be infected by bacteria. (kidshealth.org)
  • share
  • Avoid skin-to-skin contact with anyone who has recently been diagnosed with scabies, and do not share their clothes, bedding or towels. (mass.gov)
  • known
  • Christopher John Millar (born 30 July 1955), known by his stage name Rat Scabies, is a musician best known for his tenure as the drummer for The Damned. (wikipedia.org)
  • several
  • S. scabies can produce several related toxins which are the most responsible for its pathogenicity, but several other systems have also been identified which contribute. (wikipedia.org)
