Leptospira Vanaporn Wuthiekanun (LVW) agar was used to develop a disk diffusion assay for Leptospira spp. Ten pathogenic Leptospira isolates were tested, all of which were susceptible to 17 antimicrobial agents (amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, amoxicillin, azithromycin, cefoxitin, ceftazidime, ceftriaxone, chloramphenicol, ciprofloxacin, clindamycin, doripenem, doxycycline, gentamicin, linezolid, nitrofurantoin, penicillin, piperacillin/tazobactam, and tetracycline). All 10 isolates had no zone of growth inhibition for four antimicrobials (fosfomycin, nalidixic acid, rifampicin, and trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole). Of the ten Leptospira, seven had a growth inhibition zone of ≤ 21 mm for aztreonam, the zone diameter susceptibility break point for Enterobacteriaceae. This assay could find utility as a simple screening method during the epidemiological surveillance of antimicrobial resistance in Leptospira spp.

The average droplet size and zeta potential of emulsions were ca. 180 nm and ca. +50 mV, respectively. Among the emulsions, a stable formulation was selected to form a complex with a plasmid DNA encoding chloramphenicol acetyltransferase. By increasing the ratio of emulsion to DNA. zeta-potential of the emulsion/DNA complex increased monotonously from negative to positive without any changes in the complex size. The complex was stable against DNase I digestion and an anionic poly-L-aspartic acid (PLAA). The complex delivered DNA into the cells successfully, and the transfection efficiency was not affected by complex formation time from 20 min to 2 h. More importantly, the cationic lipid emulsion facilitated the transfer of DNA in the presence of up to 90% serum.

We found that loss of integrity of the ribosome by removal of a putative ribosome maturation factor or a ribosomal protein conferred salt tolerance on Escherichia coli cells. Some protein synthesis inhibitors including kasugamycin and chloramphenicol also had a similar effect, although kasugamycin affected neither 16S rRNA maturation nor subunit association into a 70S ribosome. Thus, salt tolerance is a common feature of cells in which maturation or function of the ribosome is impaired. In these cells, premature induction of an alternative sigma factor, σ(E), by salt stress was observed. These results suggest the existence of a yet-unknown stress response pathway mediated by the bacterial ribosome.

The antimicrobial resistance profiles of Campylobacter isolates recovered from a range of retail food samples (n=374) and humans (n=314) to eight antimicrobial compounds were investigated. High levels of resistance in food C. jejuni isolates were observed for ceftiofur (58%), ampicillin (25%) and nalidixic acid (17%) with lower levels observed for streptomycin (7.9%) and chloramphenicol (8.3%). A total of 80% of human C. jejuni isolates were resistant to ceftiofur, while 17% showed resistance to ampicillin and nalidixic acid, 8.6% to streptomycin and 4.1% to chloramphenicol. Resistance to clinically relevant antimicrobials such as erythromycin, ciprofloxacin and tetracycline was 6.7, 12, and 15% respectively for all food isolates and was similar to corresponding resistance prevalences observed for human isolates, where 6.4, 12 and 13% respectively were found to be resistant. Comparisons of C. jejuni isolates in each location showed a high degree of similarity although some regional variations did exist. Comparison of total C. jejuni and C. coli populations showed minor differences, with C. jejuni isolates more resistant to ampicillin and ceftiofur. Multidrug resistance patterns showed some profiles common to human and clinical isolates.

The substrate benzaldehyde (but not propionaldehyde) could elute aldehyde dehydrogenase from a p-hydroxyacetophenone-affinity column, and inhibit the esterase activity (K(i)=47 microM), indicating that this simple aromatic aldehyde binds to the free enzyme and possibly in the substrate-binding site. Thus, the kinetic mechanism for aldehyde dehydrogenase might be dependent upon which aldehyde is used in the reaction. Chloramphenicol which also elutes the enzyme from the affinity column, shows a discriminatory effect by inhibiting the ALDH1 oxidation of benzaldehyde and activating that of propionaldehyde while showing no effect when assayed with hexanal or cyclohexane-carboxaldehyde. Chloramphenicol is an uncompetitive inhibitor against NAD when benzaldehyde is the substrate. We propose that this drug might interact with both the benzaldehyde and NAD binding sites.

Food of animal origins, particularly pork and chicken meat, has long been recognized as major sources of human salmonellosis. There have been recent reports of human salmonellosis outbreaks due to consumption of leafy green vegetables such as lettuce. In this study, 120 (40 pork, 40 chicken meat and 40 lettuce) samples were randomly collected from retail markets in Bangkok and central Thailand during June to August 2015 for Salmonella serotype identification and antimicrobial susceptibility testing. Salmonella was found in 82%, 62% and 20% of pork, chicken meat and lettuce samples, respectively. The top 5 most common Salmonella serotypes were Panama (15%), Schwarzengrund (12%), Rissen, Anatum, and Stanley (11% each), Albany (9%), and Indiana (8%). A high percentage of Salmonella isolated from food of animal origin were resistant to multiple antimicrobial drugs, including ampicillin, chloramphenicol, nalidixic acid, sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim, and tetracycline. From antibiogram pattern analysis, the most common serotypes constituted isolates that were multidrug resistant. The study indicates that Salmonella was still present in various kinds of food and that certain serotypes have become predominant, a phenomenon not previously reported in Thailand.

Under conventional culture conditions, smooth muscle cells display their phenotypic modulation from a differentiated to a dedifferentiated state. Here, we established a primary culture system of smooth muscle cells maintaining a differentiated phenotype, as characterized by expression of smooth muscle-specific marker genes such as h-caldesmon and calponin, cell morphology, and ligand-induced contractility. Laminin retarded the progression of dedifferentiation of smooth muscle cells. Insulin-like growth factors (IGF-I and IGF-II) and insulin markedly prolonged the differentiated phenotype, with IGF-I being the more potent. In contrast, serum, epidermal growth factor, transforming growth factors, and platelet-derived growth factors potently induced dedifferentiation compared with angiotensin II, arginine-vasopressin, and basic fibroblast growth factor. Using the present culture system, we investigated signaling pathways regulating a phenotype of smooth muscle cells. In cultured cells, IGF-I specifically activated phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3-kinase) and its downstream target, protein kinase B, but not mitogen-activated protein kinases. Specific inhibitors of PI3-kinase (wortmannin and LY294002) induced dedifferentiation of smooth muscle cells even when they were cultured on laminin under IGF-I-stimulated conditions. The sole effect of laminin to retard the dedifferentiation was completely blocked by anti-IGF-I antibody, and laminin promoted the endogenous expression of IGF-I in cultured cells. The reduced promoter activity of the caldesmon gene induced by platelet-derived growth factor BB was overcome by the forced expression of the constitutive active form of PI3-kinase p110alpha catalytic subunit. These findings suggest that an IGF-I signaling pathway through PI3-kinase plays a critical role in maintaining a differentiated phenotype of smooth muscle cells.

With the goal of developing non-viral techniques for exogenous gene delivery into mammalian cells, we have studied receptor-mediated gene transfer using complexes of plasmid DNA and galactosylated poly-L-lysine, poly(L-Lys)Gal. To evaluate the optimal parameters for efficient gene transfer into human hepatoma HepG2 cells by the DNA-poly(L-Lys)Gal complexes, the bacterial reporter genes lacZ and cat were used. Examination of the reporter gene expression level showed that the efficiency of DNA delivery into the cells depends on the structure of DNA--poly(L-Lys)Gal complexes formed at various ionic strength values. The efficiency of DNA transfer into the cells also depends on DNA/poly(L-Lys)Gal molar ratio in the complexes. Plasmid vector carrying human apolipoprotein A-I (apoA-I) gene was injected as its complex with poly(L-Lys)Gal into rat tail vein. Some level of ApoA-I was detected in the serum of the injected rats. Also, the human apoA-I-containing plasmid was found to be captured specifically by the rat liver cells and transported into the cell nuclei, where it can persist as an episome-like structure for at least a week. After repeated injections of DNA--poly(L-Lys)Gal complexes, the level of human ApoA-I in rat serum increases, probably, due to accumulation of functional human apoA-I gene in the liver cell nuclei. The data seem to be useful for the development of non-viral approaches to gene therapy of cardiovascular diseases.

Gene transfer into vascular smooth muscle cells (vsmcs) holds promise for studying the pathogenesis of arterial disorders. However, a potential limitation of vectors with heterologous promoters is organ toxicity resulting from unrestricted transgene expression. Vascular smooth muscle cell-specific gene expression could increase the safety of vectors for vascular diseases.

Prevalence of Salmonella differed among chicken lines and ages. Chicken and human isolates belonged mainly to serogroup B, C1, C2-C3, D, and E. 13 serovars and 66 serovars were identified for chicken and human isolates respectively. The common serovars for chicken and human isolates were S. Typhimurium, S. Enteritidis, S. Albany, S. Derby, and S. Anatum and shared common H1 antigens "g complex; i; e,h; and z4,z24" and H2 antigens "1 complex and -". In human isolates, H1 antigen "i" and H2 antigen "-" were common in all serogroups. In chicken, antimicrobial susceptibility differed among serogroups chloromycetin buy , serovars and three counties. All isolates were susceptible to cefazolin and ceftriaxone, but highly resistant to ampicillin, chloramphenicol, flumequine, streptomycin, sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim, and tetracycline. Except those isolates of serogroup C1 of Chick group and serogroup G, all isolates were multi-drug resistance. Only S. Kubacha, S. Typhimurium, S. Grampian, and S. Mons were resistant to ciprofloxacin and/or enrofloxacin.

In this study nine strains of Enterococcus faecalis and 12 strains of Enterococcus faecium, isolated from different sample types in the swine meat chain and previously characterized for the presence of antibiotic resistance genes, were examined for phenotypic tolerance to seven biocides (chlorexidine, benzalkonium chloride, triclosan, sodium hypochlorite, 2-propanol, formaldehyde and hydrogen peroxide) and resistance to nine antibiotics (ampicillin, vancomycin, gentamicin, kanamycin, streptomycin, erythromycin, clindamycin chloromycetin buy , tetracycline and chloramphenicol). Moreover, the presence of efflux system encoding genes qacA/B, qacC, qacE, qacEΔ1, emeA, and stress response genes, sigV and gsp65, involved in the tolerance to biocides, was analysed. Most strains were not tolerant to the biocides, but showed minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) higher than the recommended cut-off values for all the antibiotics tested, except for vancomycin and chloramphenicol. Only weak correlations, if any, were found between biocide and antibiotic resistance data. One E. faecalis strain was tolerant to triclosan and one E. faecium strain, with higher tolerance to chlorexidine than the other strains tested, was found to carry a qacA/B gene. Our results indicated that phenotypic resistance to antibiotics is very frequent in enterococcal isolates from the swine meat chain, but phenotypic tolerance to biocides is not common. On the other hand, the gene qacA/B was found for the first time in the species E. faecium, an indication of the necessity to adopt measures suitable to control the spread of biocide resistance determinants among enterococci.

The biosynthesis of syringomycin (SR) and syringopeptin 22 (SP22), bioactive lipodepsipeptides of the phytopathogenic bacterium Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae, was studied by feeding (14)C-labeled precursors to chloramphenicol-containing bacterial suspensions. The preferential sites of incorporation were determined by comparing the specific activities of the intact radiolabeled metabolites and their single structural elements, obtained by hydrolytic degradation followed by derivatization and isolation by high performance liquid chromatography. The results show that, upon feeding Hyzaar And Alcohol L-[(14)C(U)]-Thr, 35.0 and 31.0% of the SR radioactivity is retained in 2,3-dehydro-2-aminobutyric acid (Dhb) and 4-chlorothreonine (Thr(4-Cl)), respectively. L-[(14)C(U)]-Asp labels the same sites, though less efficiently, and is also incorporated in 2,4-diaminobutyric acid (Dab) and 3-hydroxyaspartic acid (Asp(3-OH)). Dhb is also labeled by Thr and Asp in SP22. These are the first data on the biosynthetic origin of the modified residues in P. syringae lipopeptides.

There is potential for the normal faecal flora of humans to be augmented by resistant strains of bacteria, acquired from food. The frequency of resistance in the aerobic Gram-negative faecal flora is often very high. The purpose of this study was to find out whether food strains contribute to this resistance. One hundred and thirty-seven vegetable samples were studied, 48 of Finnish origin, and 89 imported. From these samples, 535 different strains of bacteria belonging to the family Enterobacteriaceae were isolated. Enterobacter spp. were most frequent, Escherichia coli was rare. Sensitivity testing was undertaken only for isolates with different biotypes and antibiograms. No resistance was found to cefotaxime, aztreonam, imipenem, gentamicin, nalidixic acid or ciprofloxacin. The frequency of trimethoprim resistance was 0.2%, sulphamethoxazole resistance 1.3%, and tetracycline resistance 5.5%. These frequencies were much lower than those found in faecal Cleocin User Reviews flora. Chloramphenicol and cefuroxime resistance was found in 12% and 14% of isolates, respectively. The only statistically significant differences between the Finnish and imported strains were for these two; the Finnish isolates were more resistant to cefuroxime, whereas the imported ones were more resistant to chloramphenicol. Consequently, bacteria from vegetables are not responsible for the high prevalence of resistant Enterobacteriaceae in faecal flora in Finland; they are in fact unusually susceptible to the antibiotics studied. Multiresistance profiles, typical of strains associated with human activities, were not identified in these isolates.

Surface disinfection is a procedure carried out on the external parts of the dental equipment as well as on other items of the dental office. The aim of this study was to analyze the efficacy of 4 surface disinfectants utilized in dentistry: 77 degrees GL alcohol, phenolic compound (Duplofen), iodophor (PVP-I) and 77 degrees GL alcohol with 5% of chlorhexidine. Four surfaces of the equipment were analyzed in the study (the carter, the washbasin for hand-washing, the headrest of the chair and the external surface of the reflector), and the spray-wipe-spray procedure was carried out. From each surface, samples were collected by means of surface plates containing Mitis Salivarius bacitracin sucrose agar, Sabouraud Dextrose agar with chloramphenicol, MacConkey agar and blood agar, for counting mutans streptococci, Candida yeasts, gram-negative bacteria and total microorganisms, respectively (ufc/plate). The results were statistically analyzed by means of the Student's t test in order to compare the mean ufc/plate values. The most effective disinfectant was 77 degrees GL alcohol with 5% of chlorhexidine, mainly against gram-positive bacteria. Iodophor and phenolic compound were also effective in microbial reduction. 77 degrees GL alcohol was the least effective product - however, although it is not considered as a surface disinfectant, it produced, in this study, statistically significant microbial reduction after the disinfecting Evista Generic Price procedure.

The Artemia salina bioassay was successfully applied to the analysis of the hepatotoxic cyanobacterial alkaloid and protein synthesis inhibitor, cylindrospermopsin. A Arcoxia 6o Mg dose-dependent response in mortality was observed for purified cylindrospermopsin and LC(50) values decreased with time from 8.1 to 0.71 microg/ml(-1), between 24 and 72 h, respectively. Cylindrospermopsin was slightly less potent than micro cystin-LR, with similar LC(50) values on a gravimetric basis, but was more toxic to A.salina than the protein synthesis inhibitors, cycloheximide, chloramphenicol and tetracycline. Cylindrospermopsin-containing strains of the cyanobacterium Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii were found to be toxic to A.salina and the LC(50) concentration for these strains over time was greater than the LC(50) for purified cylindrospermopsin, with the exception of C. raciborskii strain CR1.

In vitro antimicrobial sensitivity of 12 Hungarian isolates and the type strain ATCC 33144 of Actinobaculum suis to different antimicrobial compounds was determined Strattera Capsule both by the agar dilution and by the disc diffusion method. By agar dilution, MIC50 values in the range of 0.05-3.125 micrograms/ml were determined for penicillin, ampicillin, ceftiofur, doxycycline, tylosin, pleuromutilins, chloramphenicol, florfenicol, enrofloxacin and lincomycin. The MIC50 value of oxytetracycline and spectinomycin was 6.25 and 12.5 micrograms/ml, respectively. For ofloxacin, flumequine, neomycin, streptomycin, gentamicin, nalidixic acid, nitrofurantoin and sulphamethoxazole + trimethoprim MIC50 values were in the range of 25-100 micrograms/ml. With the disc diffusion method, all strains were sensitive to penicillin, cephalosporins examined, chloramphenicol and florfenicol, tetracyclines examined, pleuromutilins, lincomycin and tylosin. Variable sensitivity was observed for fluoroquinolones (flumequine, enrofloxacin, ofloxacin), most of the strains were susceptible to marbofloxacin. Almost all strains were resistant to aminoglycosides but most of them were sensitive to spectinomycin. A strong correlation was determined for disc diffusion and MIC results (Spearman's rho 0.789, p < 0001). MIC values of the type strain and MIC50 values of other tested strains did not differ significantly. Few strains showed a partially distinct resistance pattern for erythromycin, lincomycin and ampicillin in both methods.

Denervation by sciatic nerve resection causes decreased muscle glucose transporter 4 (GLUT4) expression, but little is known about the signaling events that cause this decrease. Experiments were designed to test the hypothesis that decreased GLUT4 expression in denervated muscle occurs because of decreased calcium/CaMK activity, which would then lead to decreased activation of the transcription factors myocyte enhancer factor 2 (MEF2) and GLUT4 enhancer factor (GEF Vermox 500 Alcohol ), which are required for normal GLUT4 expression. GLUT4 mRNA was elevated in mice expressing constitutively active CaMK isoform IV (CaMKIV) and decreased by denervation. Denervation decreased GEF binding to the promoter and the content of GEF in the nucleus, but there was no change in either MEF2 binding or MEF2 protein content. Expression of a MEF2-dependent reporter gene did not change in denervated skeletal muscle. To determine the domains of the GLUT4 promoter that respond to denervation, transgenic mice expressing the chloramphenicol acetyl transferase (CAT) reporter gene driven by different lengths of the human GLUT4 promoter were denervated. Using several different promoter/reporter gene constructs, we found that all areas of the GLUT4 promoter were truncated or missing, except for the MEF2 binding domain and the basal promoter. All of the GLUT4 promoter/CAT reporter constructs evaluated responded normally to denervation. Our data lead us to conclude that decreased CaMK activity is not the reason for decreased GLUT4 content in denervated muscle and that negative control of GLUT4 expression is not mediated through the MEF2 or GEF-binding domains. These findings indicate that withdrawal of a GEF- or MEF2-dependent signal is not likely a major determinant of the denervation effect on GLUT4 expression. Thus, the response to denervation may be mediated by other elements present in the basal promoter of the GLUT4 gene.

Antibiotic resistance and the mode of transmission were investigated in bacteria isolated from poultry litter. Total aerobic heterotrophic bacteria were screened and identified for their resistance to different antibiotics such as ampicillin, streptomycin, erythromycin, tetracycline, chloramphenicol, kanamycin, tobramycin, and rifampicin. The distribution of bacteria found in the litter was Staphylococcus (29.1%), which was the predominant group, followed by Streptococcus (25%), Micrococcus (20.8%), Escherichia coli (12.5%), Salmonella (8.3%), and Aeromonas (4.1%). Fifty percent of these isolates were susceptible to ampicillin, 57% to erythromycin, 25% to tetracycline, 4% to chloramphenicol, 40% to kanamycin, 75% to streptomycin, 54% to tobramycin, and 4% to rifampicin. Three randomly selected isolates representing Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, and Micrococcus were examined for plasmids, and plasmid-curing and Celebrex 600 Mg plasmid-induced transformation studies were conducted. Streptococcus and Micrococcus harbored a plasmid of 4.2 and 5.1 kb, respectively, whereas Staphylococcus did not harbor any plasmids. Plasmids were cured in Streptococcus and Micrococcus at a concentration of 75 and 100 microg/ mL of acridine orange, respectively, and transformation of 4.2- and 5.1-kb plasmids isolated from the Streptococcus and Micrococcus to plasmid-free E. coli DH5alpha strain was possible. In conjugation experiments, the antibiotic resistance profiles of transconjugant cells were found to be the same as the donors with the exception of Staphylococcus. The results of this study suggest that transformation and conjugation could be an important mechanism for horizontal gene transfer between bacteria in poultry litter. An understanding of the mechanism and magnitude of resistance gene transfer may provide a strategy to reduce the potential for dissemination of these genes.

The small DNA fragment thymidine dinucleotide (pTpT) stimulates photoprotective responses in mammalian cells and Periactin Pills Review intact skin. These responses include increased melanogenesis (tanning) and enhanced repair of DNA damage induced by ultraviolet (UV) light. Here we show that pTpT treatment of human keratinocytes enhances their repair of DNA damaged by the chemical carcinogen benzo(a)pyrene (BP), as determined by increased expression of a transfected BP-damaged reporter plasmid containing the chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (CAT) gene. The pTpT-enhanced repair of this BP-damaged plasmid is accomplished at least in part through activation of the p53 tumor suppressor protein and transcription factor, because p53-null H1299 cells showed enhanced repair only if previously transfected with a p53-expression vector. To elucidate the mechanism of this enhanced DNA repair, we examined the expression of p21 and proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), proteins known to be regulated by p53, as well as the XPA protein, which is mutated in the inherited repair-deficient disorder xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) group A and is necessary for the recognition of UV-induced DNA photoproducts. The p53, PCNA and XPA proteins were all up-regulated within 48 h after the addition of pTpT. Taken together, these data demonstrate that pTpT-enhanced repair of DNA damaged by either UV irradiation or chemical mutagens can be achieved in human cells by exposure to small DNA fragments at least in part through the activation of p53 and increased expression of p53-regulated genes.

We are analyzing highly conserved heat shock genes of unknown or unclear function with the aim of determining their cellular role. Hsp15 has previously been shown to be an abundant nucleic acid-binding protein whose synthesis is induced massively at the RNA level upon temperature upshift. We have now identified that the in vivo target of Hsp15 action is the free 50S Vantin Tablets ribosomal subunit. Hsp15 binds with very high affinity (K(D) <5 nM) to this subunit, but only when 50S is free, not when it is part of the 70S ribosome. In addition, the binding of Hsp15 appears to correlate with a specific state of the mature, free 50S subunit, which contains bound nascent chain. This provides the first evidence for a so far unrecognized abortive event in translation. Hsp15 is suggested to be involved in the recycling of free 50S subunits that still carry a nascent chain. This gives Hsp15 a very different functional role from all other heat shock proteins and points to a new aspect of translation.

A number of 133 and 121 florfenicol-resistant strains were isolated from scallop larval cultures prior to their transfer to seawater and from effluent samples from 2 commercial hatcheries and identified by 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis, observing a predominance of the Pseudomonas, Pseudoalteromonas and Halomonas genera and exhibiting an important incidence of co-resistance to streptomycin, oxytetracycline and co-trimoxazole. A high percentage of strains from both hatcheries carried the floR gene (68.4% and 89.3% of strains), whereas a lower carriage of the cmlA gene was detected (27.1% and 54.5% of strains). The high prevalence of floR-carrying bacteria in reared scallop larvae and hatchery effluents contributes to enrich the marine resistome in marine environments, prompting the need of a continuous surveillance of these genes in the mariculture environments.

Gene transfer in the lung holds promise for the treatment of diseases such as pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis and asthma. Pulmonary surfactant has been reported to enhance expression from endobronchial, adenovirus-mediated gene transfer in experimental animals. This study examines the effect of exogenous synthetic surfactant (Exosurf) on gene expression from naked plasmid DNA administered endobronchially to adult mice. Transfection efficiency was evaluated by quantifying the expression of chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (CAT) and luciferase (Luc) genes in the lung. Endobronchial administration of either CAT or Luc expression plasmid DNA resulted in detectable concentrations of each reporter protein. CAT expression from plasmid DNA was monitored after endobronchial administration with the maximal expression observed at 3-5 days after administration and decreasing for 5 days thereafter. When DNA was delivered in a 50% suspension of Exosurf, the expression of either CAT or Luc was significantly reduced by 89.6 +/- 1.4% and 82.7 +/- 10.5%, respectively. The decrease in Luc expression was closely correlated (r = 0.99, P < 0.001) to log concentration of surfactant in the plasmid buffer solution (IC50 = 8.6%). CAT expression was not altered when surfactant was administered either 2 h before or after plasmid DNA instillation. Examination of the components of Exosurf revealed that two compounds, DPPC and tyloxapol, showed inhibitory effects on CAT expression. However, the inhibition caused by Exosurf appeared greater than that of either component. Our results suggest that the lung surfactant is a barrier to transfection of the endobronchial airway and may be partly responsible for the low expression of exogenous DNA in vivo in the bronchial tree.

Alzheimer's disease is characterized by the accumulation of amyloid-beta peptide, which is cleaved from the amyloid-beta precursor protein (APP). Reduction in levels of the potentially toxic amyloid-beta has emerged as one of the most important therapeutic goals in Alzheimer's disease. Key targets for this goal are factors that affect the regulation of the APP gene. Recent in vivo and in vitro studies have illustrated the importance of copper in Alzheimer's disease neuropathogenesis and suggested a role for APP and amyloid-beta in copper homeostasis. We hypothesized that metals and in particular copper might alter APP gene expression. To test the hypothesis, we utilized human fibroblasts overexpressing the Menkes protein (MNK), a major mammalian copper efflux protein. MNK deletion fibroblasts have high intracellular copper, whereas MNK overexpressing fibroblasts have severely depleted intracellular copper. We demonstrate that copper depletion significantly reduced APP protein levels and down-regulated APP gene expression. Furthermore, APP promoter deletion constructs identified the copper-regulatory region between -490 and +104 of the APP gene promoter in both basal MNK overexpressing cells and in copper-chelated MNK deletion cells. Overall these data support the hypothesis that copper can regulate APP expression and further support a role for APP to function in copper homeostasis. Copper-regulated APP expression may also provide a potential therapeutic target in Alzheimer's disease.

Collagenase-3 (MMP-13) is a matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) originally identified in breast carcinomas which is also produced at significant levels during fetal ossification and in arthritic processes. In this work, we have found that transforming growth factor beta1 (TGF-beta1), a growth factor widely assumed to be inhibitory for MMPs, strongly induces collagenase-3 expression in human KMST fibroblasts. In contrast, this growth factor down-regulated the expression in these cells of collagenase-1 (MMP-1), an enzyme highly related to collagenase-3 in terms of structure and enzymatic properties. The positive effect of TGF-beta1 on collagenase-3 expression was dose- and time-dependent, but independent of the effects of this growth factor on cell proliferation rate. Analysis of the signal transduction mechanisms underlying the up-regulating effect of TGF-beta1 on collagenase-3 expression demonstrated that this growth factor acts through a signaling pathway involving protein kinase C and tyrosine kinase activities. Functional analysis of the collagenase-3 gene promoter region revealed that the inductive effect of TGF-beta1 is partially mediated by an AP-1 site. Comparative analysis with the promoter region of the collagenase-1 gene which contains an AP-1 site at equivalent position, confirmed that TGF-beta1 did not have any effect on CAT activity levels of this promoter. Finally, by using electrophoretic mobility shift assays and antibody supershift analysis, we propose that c-Fos, c-Jun, and JunD may play major roles in the collagenase-3 activation by TGF-beta1 in human fibroblasts.

A series of 30 Indian folklore medicinal plants used by tribal healers to treat infections, were screened for antibacterial properties at 10 mg/ml concentration by using disc diffusion method against Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella aerogenes, Proteus vulgaris, Pseudomonas aerogenes and Staphylococcus aureus. Twenty plant species showed activity against one or more species of bacteria used in this assay; among them the leaf extracts of Cassia occidentalis and Cassia auriculata exhibited significant broad spectrum activity against B. subtilis and S. aureus. Ten plant species were not found active against all tested bacteria. These results were compared with results obtained using standard antibiotics, chloramphenicol (30 microg/disc) and streptomycin (30 microg/disc) which served as a reference for inhibition zone diameter.

Throughout 1996, 22 hospital-based laboratories in the Rhône-Alpes region of France collected pneumococcal strains and used a standardized protocol to record the following data; patient age and sex; type of specimen; and determination of susceptibility to at least the following antibiotics: oxacillin 1 microgram and 5 micrograms, erythromycin (Ery), tetracycline (Tet), chloramphenicol (Chl), rifampin (Rmp), and loracarbef. For penicillin-nonsusceptible strains (PNSSs), which were identified based on results with oxacillin, MICs for penicillin G, amoxicillin (Amx), and cefotaxime (Ctx) were determined using the E Test, at the study site and agar dilution at the coordinating center. Of the 1153 strains, 65.5% were from adults and 31.8% from children; patient age was unknown in 2.7% of cases. PNSPs (MIC > 0.06 mg/l) contributed 32.9% of strains (I: 23.3%; R: 9.6%) and were more common in children (41.1%) than in adults (28.1%). The frequency of PNSSs varied across specimen types: 27.9% in blood cultures (305 strains), 15.6% in cerebrospinal fluid (32), 38.7% in protected bronchopulmonary specimens (31), 31.5% in unprotected bronchopulmonary specimens (434), 50.8% in acute otitis media (118), and 34.4% in other specimens (221). Among PNSSs, nonsusceptibility (I + R) to other antibiotics was variable: Ery, 62.1%; Tet, 41.5%; Chl, 40.4%; Rmp, 1.1%. Corresponding figures for the overall strain population were Ery, 33.3%; Tet, 22.7%; Chl, 22.8%; Rmp, 0.9%. In addition, 56.5% of PNSSs exhibited multiple drug resistance. Resistance to amoxicillin (MIC > 2 mg/l) was demonstrated for only 5 strains. No strains were resistant to loracarbef or cefotaxime. Serotypes of the 379 PNSSs were as follows: 23F, 26.6%; 14 (25.6%); 9V (18.2%), 6 (8.7%), 15 (5%), 19 (4.5%).

One hundred and sixty four paediatric inpatient admissions (median age = 1.0 year, IQR = 0.2-2.2years) were enrolled, and an average of 1.9 faecal samples per patient were collected. On admission, 68/164 (41%) patients had both ESBL and gentamicin-resistant Enterobacteriaceae detected, 18 (11%) had ESBL only, 17 (10%) had gentamicin resistance only and 61 (37%) had negative screening for both forms of resistance. During hospitalisation, 32/164 (20%) patients were found to have a type of resistant organism which was not present in their admission sample. We found that faecal samples and use of a selective enrichment broth enhanced the detection of resistant organisms. Amongst resistant bacteria isolated, there were high levels of resistance to ciprofloxacin and chloramphenicol, but not ertapenem.

Photorhabdus is an entomopathogenic bacterium symbiotically associated with nematodes of the family Heterorhabditidae. Bacterial hemolysins found in numerous pathogenic bacteria are often virulence factors. We describe here the nucleotide sequence and the molecular characterization of the Photorhabdus luminescens phlBA operon, a locus encoding a hemolysin which shows similarities to the Serratia type of hemolysins. It belongs to the two-partner secretion (TPS) family of proteins. In low-iron conditions, a transcriptional induction of the phlBA operon was observed by using the chloramphenicol acetyltransferase reporter gene, causing an increase in PhlA hemolytic activity compared to iron-rich media. A spontaneous phase variant of P. luminescens was deregulated in phlBA transcription. The phlA mutant constructed by allelic exchange remained highly pathogenic after injection in the lepidopteran Spodoptera littoralis, indicating that PhlA hemolysin is not a major virulence determinant. Using the gene encoding green fluorescent protein as a reporter, phlBA transcription was observed in hemolymph before insect death. We therefore discuss the possible role of PhlA hemolytic activity in the bacterium-nematode-insect interactions.

A total of 413 clinical specimens (pus, blood, urine, and stool) collected from patients admitted to Jimma Hospital were cultured for isolation and identification of aerobic bacteria and antimicrobial susceptibility testing. Out of these, 124 specimens yielded one or more Gram-negative bacilli strains. Frequent Gram negative bacterial isolates were Proteus species 34(27%), Klebsiella species 26(21%), Enterobacter species 24(19%), and E. coli 24(19%). Antimicrobial susceptibility test results showed that all E. coli, Klebsiella, and Enterobacter species were resistant to ampicillin. Ninety-two percent of Enterbacter sp., 85% of Klebisiella and 79% of E. coli were resistant to tetracycline. Almost all the isolates were found to be multi-resistant to the commonly used antimicrobials, ampicillin, tetracycline, chloramphenicol, and trimethoprim-sulphamethoxazole. Antimicrobial resistant strains of bacteria are increasing and may contribute to spread of serious infectious diseases in Jimma Hospital and elsewhere in the country. Therefore, if we are to prevent and control infections by emerging antimicrobial resistant bacterial strains, measures such as strengthening clinical microbiology laboratory, increased emphasis on effective infection control, emphasis on hygienic practices in hospital, and prudent use of existing antimicrobial agents is recommended.
