Multiple epidemiologic studies show that adeno-associated virus (AAV) is negatively associated with cervical cancer (CX CA), a cancer which is positively associated with human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. Mechanisms for this correlation may be by Rep78's (AAV's major regulatory protein) ability to bind the HPV-16 p97 promoter DNA and inhibit transcription, to bind and interfere with the functions of the E7 oncoprotein of HPV-16, and to bind a variety of HPV-important cellular transcription factors such as Sp1 and TBP. c-Jun is another important cellular factor intimately linked to the HPV life cycle, as well as keratinocyte differentiation and skin development. Skin is the natural host tissue for both HPV and AAV. In this article it is demonstrated that Rep78 directly interacts with c-Jun, both in vitro and in vivo, as analyzed by Western blot, yeast two-hybrid cDNA, and electrophoretic mobility shift-supershift assay (EMSA supershift). Addition of anti-Rep78 antibodies inhibited the EMSA supershift. Investigating the biological implications of this interaction, Rep78 inhibited the c-Jun-dependent c-jun promoter in transient and stable chloramphenicol acetyl-transferase (CAT) assays. Rep78 also inhibited c-Jun-augmented c-jun promoter as well as the HPV-16 p97 promoter activity (also c-Jun regulated) in in vitro transcription assays in T47D nuclear extracts. Finally, the Rep78-c-Jun interaction mapped to the amino-half of Rep78. The ability of Rep78 to interact with c-Jun and down-regulate AP-1-dependent transcription suggests one more mechanism by which AAV may modulate the HPV life cycle and the carcinogenesis process.

Nitric oxide (NO) has diverse effects on immune responses and hepatic functions. In BNL CL.2 cells, the murine embryonic liver cells, inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) mRNA expression appeared after 3 h of treatment with IFN-gamma and LPS. Interestingly, mRNA and protein expression of iNOS was down-regulated by sodium nitroprusside (SNP) and diethylamine dinitric oxide in a time- and dose-dependent manner, but not by H2O2. TNF-alpha gene expression was also dramatically reduced by SNP, but IL-6 gene expression was inhibited much less. IFN-gamma and LPS-induced chloramphenicol acetyltransferase activity of iNOS promoter constructs was inhibited by SNP. Electrophoretic mobility shift assay showed that SNP inhibited IFN-gamma plus LPS-induced Oct-1 binding activity, and the inhibition was reversed by DTT. Mutation in the Oct-1 site completely abolished iNOS promoter activity. In addition, supershift assay and Southwestern analysis demonstrated that the Oct-1 binding activity was inhibited by SNP. Taken together, these results indicate that NO suppresses IFN-gamma plus LPS-induced iNOS expression, and that Oct-1 is an important element in this process.

The key regulator of the switch from latent to lytic replication of the human herpesvirus 8 (HHV-8; KSHV) is the replication and transcription activator (Rta). The ability of Rta to regulate cellular gene expression was examined by transient transfection into cells that were not infected with HHV-8. Rta induced some, but not all, NF-kappa B-responsive reporters through mechanisms that did not involve activation of classic forms of NF-kappa B. Furthermore, transfection of the NF-kappa B subunit Rel A inhibited the ability of Rta to transactivate some but not all reporters. For example, Rel A inhibited the ability of Rta to transactivate the IL-6 promoter, but only when sequences upstream of the NF-kappa B site were present. The ability of Rel A to inhibit Rta-mediated transactivation was not dependent on a functional NF-kappa B site within the promoter, suggesting an indirect mechanism for inhibition. These studies suggest that Rta expression during lytic reactivation of HHV-8 would lead to expression of some cellular genes, including IL-6, whereas activation of NF-kappa B could inhibit some responses to Rta.

O-Phosphoserine (Sep), the most abundant phosphoamino acid in the eukaryotic phosphoproteome, is not encoded in the genetic code, but synthesized posttranslationally. Here, we present an engineered system for specific cotranslational Sep incorporation (directed by UAG) into any desired position in a protein by an Escherichia coli strain that harbors a Sep-accepting transfer RNA (tRNA(Sep)), its cognate Sep-tRNA synthetase (SepRS), and an engineered EF-Tu (EF-Sep). Expanding the genetic code rested on reengineering EF-Tu to relax its quality-control function and permit Sep-tRNA(Sep) binding. To test our system, we synthesized the activated form of human mitogen-activated ERK activating kinase 1 (MEK1) with either one or two Sep residues cotranslationally inserted in their canonical positions (Sep(218), Sep(222)). This system has general utility in protein engineering, molecular biology, and disease research.

Although there are no pathognomonic clinical features of MDRTF at the onset of the illness, high fever ( > 104°F), toxaemia, abdominal distension, abdominal tenderness, hepatomegaly and splenomegaly are often reported. The gold standard for the diagnosis of MDRTF is bacterial isolation of the organism in blood cultures. Ciprofloxacin and ceftriaxone are the drugs most commonly used for treatment of MDRTF and produce good clinical results.

Fowl typhoid caused by Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serotype Gallinarum biotype Gallinarum is the most important chicken disease in Korea. Due to appearance of new or multiple antibiotics resistances in the recently isolated strains, it was difficult to control the disease using antibiotics in our country. Therefore, the prevalence and genetic contents of class 1 integrons in biotype Gallinarum isolated between 1992 and 2001 were investigated by PCR and direct sequencing, respectively. Out of 90 strains, 35 (39%) carried class 1 integrons. The 1.0, 1.6 and 2.0kbp amplicons were amplified in 32 strains (36%), 2 strains (2%) and 1 strain (1%), respectively. The 1.0, 1.6 and 2.0 kbp amplicons contained one (aadA1a), two (aadB-aadA1b) and three cassettes (dhfrXII-orfF-aadA2), respectively, providing resistances against aminoglycosides (aadA1a, aadA1b, aadB, and aadA2) and trimethoprim (dhfrXII). The integron-carrying strains of biotype Gallinarum appeared in 1996 and acquired additional cassettes in 2000. Although the resistances to ampicillin, tetracycline and chloramphenicol are unrelated to class 1 integrons, relatively high prevalence of integron in biotype Gallinarum may be a dormant threat to the chemotherapy of the disease in the near future because of potency to acquire additional antibiotics resistances.

We have developed the sheep as a large animal model for optimizing cystic fibrosis gene therapy protocols. We administered aerosolized gene transfer agents (GTAs) to the ovine lung in order to test the delivery, efficacy, and safety of GTAs using a clinically relevant nebulizer. A preliminary study demonstrated GTA distribution and reporter gene expression throughout the lung after aerosol administration of plasmid DNA (pDNA):GL67 and pDNA:PEI complexes. A more comprehensive study examined the dose-response relationship for pDNA:PEI and assessed the influence of adjunct therapeutic agents. We found that the sheep model can differentiate between doses of GTA and that the anticholinergic, glycopyrrolate, enhanced transgene expression. Dose-related toxicity of GTA was reduced by aerosol administration compared to direct instillation. This large animal model will allow us to move toward clinical studies with greater confidence.

Dichloroacetamide (DCAcAm) is an important type of nitrogenous disinfection byproduct. This study is the first to report that DCAcAm can be formed in the absence of chlorinated disinfectants (chlorine and chloramines). This can occur through reduction of three chloramphenicol (CAP) antibiotics by zero valent iron (ZVI). The effects of key experimental parameters, including reaction time, ZVI dose, pH, temperature, water type, and the presence of humic acid (HA) on the formation of DCAcAm were ascertained. The DCAcAm yields from three CAPs all presented the trend of increasing first and then decreasing with time and also increased with increasing ZVI dosage. DCAcAm yields from the ZVI reduction route were higher than those resulting from the chlorination of some previously identified DCAcAm precursors. Acidic conditions favored the formation of DCAcAm by the ZVI route. In addition, lower temperatures increased DCAcAm yields at extended contact times (>12 h). DCAcAm formed from the three CAPs in the presence of HA was lower than in the absence of HA. The formation potential of DCAcAm from the reduction of authentic waters spiked with CAPs by ZVI showed good linear correlations with initial concentrations of the three CAPs. This allows the formation of DCAcAm from the reduction of CAPs by ZVI to be predicted. Given that many wastewater and drinking water distribution networks contain unlined cast iron pipes, reactions between CAPs and ZVI may contribute to the formation of DCAcAm in such systems.

This study was conducted to estimate the prevalence of Salmonella spp. and their antimicrobial susceptibilities on poultry and swine farms, sampled in 2 regions in Central Vietnam. A total of 67 poultry farms and 46 swine farms were sampled in a period of 5 months (from September 2012 to January 2013). Salmonella spp. was prevalent in 46.3% and 71.7% of poultry and swine farms, respectively. Altogether, 99 non-typhoidal Salmonella were isolated and the most common serovars were Salmonella Weltevreden (19%), followed by Salmonella Typhimurium (12%) and Salmonella 4,[5],12:i:- (11%). Overall, 71 of 99 (72%) Salmonella isolates were resistant to at least one of the 14 antimicrobial agents tested. Both in poultry and swine farms, high levels of resistance were observed for ampicillin, chloramphenicol, ciprofloxacin, sulphamethoxazole and tetracycline. The presence of Salmonella isolates from poultry and swine farms which were resistant to different classes of antimicrobials suggests that alternative control measures to antimicrobials should be implemented. Moreover, an effective policy should be promoted to encourage a prudent use of these agents in animal farming in Vietnam.

Tenascin-C (TN-C), an extracellular matrix glycoprotein is expressed during embryonic development, but is present only at low levels in normal adult tissues. TN-C is re-expressed during wound healing, fibrotic diseases and in cancer. To better understand the mechanisms that control TN-C gene expression, we examined the regulation of the human TN-C promoter in human fibroblasts. We demonstrate that a short segment of the TN-C promoter between bp -133 and -27 contains three evolutionarily conserved Ets binding sites (EBS). These three EBSs bind in vitro expressed Fli1 protein and mediate transactivation of the TN-C gene by Fli1. Furthermore, two proximal EBSs contribute significantly to basal activity of the TN-C promoter. GABP, which is present in human fibroblast nuclear extracts, interacts with the two proximal EBSs. In addition, several Sp1 and Sp3 binding sites have been located in close proximity to the EBSs within this promoter region. The studies performed in Drosophila cells demonstrate that either Fli1 or GABPalpha+beta1 functionally interact with Sp1 resulting in a synergistic stimulation of the TN-C promoter activity. In conclusion, this study shows for the first time that the TN-C gene is regulated by Ets proteins, which together with Sp1 act as potent activators of TN-C expression.

Recent studies in our laboratory indicated that arsenic trioxide has the ability to cause significant cytotoxicity, and induction of a significant number of stress genes in human liver carcinoma cells, HepG2. However, similar investigations with atrazine did not show any significant effects of this chemical on HepG2 cells, even at its maximum solubility of 100 microg/mL in 1% dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO). Further cytogenetic studies were therefore carried out to investigate the combined effects of arsenic trioxide and atrazine on cell viability and gene expression in immortalized human hepatocytes. Cytotoxicity was evaluated using the MTT-assay for cell viability, while the CAT-Tox (L) assay was performed to measure the induction of stress genes in thirteen different recombinant cell lines generated from human liver carcinoma cells (HepG2), by creating stable transfectants of different mammalian promoter-chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (CAT) gene fusions. Cytotoxicity experiments yielded LC50 values of 11.9 +/- 2.6 microg/mL for arsenic trioxide in de-ionized water, and 3.6 +/- 0.4 microg/mL for arsenic trioxide in 100 microg/mL atrazine; indicating a 3 fold increase in arsenic toxicity associated with the atrazine exposure. Co-exposure of HepG2 cells to atrazine also resulted in a significant increase in the potency of arsenic trioxide to upregulate a number of stress genes including those of the glutathione-S-transferase Ya subunit--GST Ya, metallothioneinIIa--HMTIIA, 70-kDa heat shock protein--HSP70, c-fos, 153-kDa growth arrest and DNA damage (GADD153), 45-kDa growth arrest and DNA damage (GADD45), and 78-kDa glucose regulated protein--GRP78 promoters, as well as the xenobiotic response element--XRE, tumor suppressor protein response element--p53RE, cyclic adenosine monophosphate response element--CRE, and retinoic acid response element--RARE. No significant changes were observed with respect to the influence of atrazine on the modulation of cytochrome P450 1A1-CYP 1A1, and nuclear factor kappa (B site) response element--NFkappaBRE by arsenic trioxide. These results indicate that co-exposure to atrazine strongly potentiates arsenic trioxide-induced cytotoxicity and transcriptional activation of stress genes in transformed human hepatocytes.

The neuropeptide alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) modulates production of proinflammatory cytokines in brain tissue and in peripheral inflammatory cells. Transcription of the genes for these proinflammatory cytokines is regulated by the nuclear factor kappaB (NF-kappaB). NF-kappaB is also activated by proinflammatory cytokines. Degradation of the cytoplasmic inhibitor IkappaBalpha protein results in activation of NF-kappaB. Because of increasing evidence that NF-kappaB is involved in brain injury and inflammation and neurodegenerative disease, we examined whether alpha-MSH inhibits activation of NF-kappaB and limits degradation of IkappaBalpha protein induced by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in human glioma cells (A-172) and in mouse brain. Electrophoretic mobility shift assays of nuclear extracts from A-172 cells and whole mouse brains stimulated with LPS revealed that alpha-MSH does suppress NF-kappaB activation. Western blot analysis demonstrated that alpha-MSH preserved expression of IkappaBalpha protein in vitro (glioma cells) and in vivo (brain tissue). Chloramphenicol acetyltransferase assay indicated that alpha-MSH suppresses NF-kappaB-dependent reporter gene expression induced by LPS in A-172 cells. The findings are consistent with the possibility that the anti-inflammatory action of alpha-MSH in CNS inflammation occurs via modulation of NF-kappaB activation by peptide-induced inhibition of degradation of IkappaBalpha protein.

Each genome segment of the prototypic arenavirus lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV), encodes two genes in ambisense orientation, separated by an intergenic region (IGR). The 3' ends of subgenomic viral mRNAs have been mapped to a stem-loop structure within the IGR, suggesting structure-dependent transcription termination. We have studied the role of the LCMV IGR by using a minigenome (MG) rescue system based on RNA analogues of the short genome segment. An ambisense MG coding for chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (CAT) and green fluorescent protein reporter genes instead of the nucleoprotein and glycoprotein open reading frames, respectively, served as a template for synthesis of full-length anti-MG (aMG) replicate and subgenomic size mRNA for reporter gene expression. An analogous MG without IGR was amplified by the virus polymerase with equal efficiency, but subgenomic mRNA was undetectable. Reporter gene expression from IGR-deficient aMG CAT-sense RNA of genomic length was approximately 5-fold less efficient than that from subgenomic CAT mRNA derived from an IGR-containing MG, but at least 100-fold more efficient than that from a T7 RNA polymerase transcript with the same sequence. Therefore, in the absence of IGR-mediated transcription termination, a fraction of full-length aMG RNA appears to behave as bona fide mRNA. Unexpectedly, MGs without IGR were dramatically impaired in their ability to passage reporter gene activity via infectious virus-like particles. These data suggest that the LCMV IGR serves individual functions in transcription termination for enhanced gene expression and in the virus assembly and/or budding, which are required for the efficient propagation of LCMV infectivity.

Mediterranean herring gulls (Larus cachinnans) were investigated as a possible reservoir of antibiotic resistant bacteria and of cassette-borne resistance genes located in class 1 integrons. Two hundred and fourteen isolates of the family Enterobacteriaceae were collected from cloacal swabs of 92 chicks captured in a natural reserve in the North East of Italy. They showed high percentages of resistance to ampicillin and streptomycin. High percentages of resistance to trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole were found in Proteus and Citrobacter and to chloramphenicol in Proteus. Twenty-two (10%) isolates carried the intI1 gene. Molecular characterization of the integron variable regions showed a great diversity, with the presence of 11 different cassette arrays and of one integron without integrated cassettes. The dfrA1-aadA1a and aadB-aadA2 cassette arrays were the most frequently detected. Also the estX cassette, alone or in combination with other cassettes, was detected in many isolates. From this study it is concluded that the enteric flora of Mediterranean herring gulls may act as a reservoir of resistant bacteria and of resistance genes. Due to their feeding habits and their ability to fly over long distances, these free-living birds may facilitate the circulation of resistant strains between waste-handling facilities, crops, waters, and urban areas.

The availability of genes coding for monoclonal Fab fragments of a desired specificity permits their expression in bacteria and provides a simple method for the generation of good quality reagents. In this paper we describe a new phagemid vector for the production of recombinant Fabs from genes obtained from phage display combinatorial libraries. The phagemid features an antibiotic resistance cassette which, once inserted between the heavy chain fragment and the light chain genes, avoids unwanted recombination and preserves useful restriction sites not affecting the Fab production rate.

Death due to sepsis by S. aureus is rapidly increasing because of their potent weaponries against macrophage mediated killing. Macrophages serve as intracellular reservoirs of S. aureus. Although significant resources have been invested during the last decade in new treatments for sepsis, only antibiotic therapy has failed to improve outcomes. Moreover the host pathogen interaction resulted in host cell death triggering inflammation. So, successful therapy requires amalgamation of therapies to delineate pathogen along with providing protection to host cell. With this idea, LNMMA, the iNOS inhibitor is used along with antibiotics Ofloxacin or Chloramphenicol on S. aureus infected mouse peritoneal macrophage. ROS like H2O2, O2(-) production has been measured. NO inhibition by iNOS inhibitor and antioxidant levels has been analysed. COX2, TLR2 and iNOS expression along with proinflammatory cytokine level was studied. It was found that the use of iNOS inhibitor LNMMA along with antibiotics not only enhances bacterial clearance but also decreases proinflammatory responses in Staphylococcus aureus infected macrophages. Inhibition of TLR2 as well as COX2 has also been found in combined treatment groups. The use of iNOS inhibitor LNMMA plus Ofloxacin or Chloramphenicol pretreatment enhanced bacterial clearance by increasing ROS. Decreases in NO protect the cell from harmful peroxynitril as well as inflammatory damage by changes in iNOS, COX2 activity along with reduced proinflammatory cytokines like TNFα, IFNγ, IL1-β etc. Changes in antioxidant level has been found. This in-vitro realm of augmented bacterial clearance and regulated inflammation may be considered as a novel and important therapeutic intervention.

The strains were susceptible to aminoglycosides (MIC(90) values: gentamicin, 0.75 mg/L; and streptomycin, 6.0 mg/L), tetracyclines (MIC(90) values: tetracycline, 0.5 mg/L; and doxycycline, 1.0 mg/L), quinolones (MIC(90) values: ciprofloxacin, 0.047 mg/L; and levofloxacin, 0.023 mg/L) and chloramphenicol (MIC(90) value: 1.5 mg/L), i.e. antibiotics commonly used in therapy. Tigecycline (MIC(90) value: 0.19 mg/L) and rifampicin (MIC(90) value: 1.0 mg/L) were also active against F. tularensis strains, while resistance to erythromycin (MIC(90) value: >256 mg/L) and linezolid (MIC(90) value: 32 mg/L) was observed in all strains.

Among its other biological activities, pifithrin-alpha is an inhibitor of firefly luciferase activity. Caution must therefore be taken when using this compound, which has been characterised as an inhibitor of p53 transcriptional activity, to investigate effects on gene expression using transiently transfected reporter plasmids. Furthermore, these results demonstrate that when using novel compounds, the choice of vectors used in the experimental procedures might be of great importance for the correct conclusions to be made.

The adequate management of central nervous system (CNS) infections requires that antimicrobial agents penetrate the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and achieve concentrations in the CNS adequate for eradication of the infecting pathogen. This review details the currently available literature on the pharmacokinetics (PK) of antibacterials in the CNS of children. Clinical trials affirm that the physicochemical properties of a drug remain one of the most important factors dictating penetration of antimicrobial agents into the CNS, irrespective of the population being treated (i.e. small, lipophilic drugs with low protein binding exhibit the best translocation across the BBB). These same physicochemical characteristics determine the primary disposition pathways of the drug, and by extension the magnitude and duration of circulating drug concentrations in the plasma, a second major driving force behind achievable CNS drug concentrations. Notably, these disposition pathways can be expected to change during the normal process of growth and development. Finally, CNS drug penetration is influenced by the nature and extent of the infection (i.e. the presence of meningeal inflammation). Aminoglycosides have poor CNS penetration when administered intravenously. Intrathecal gentamicin has been studied in children with more promising results, often exceeding the minimum inhibitory concentration. There are very limited data with intrathecal tobramycin in children. However, in the few patients that have been studied, the CSF concentrations were highly variable. Penicillins generally have good CNS penetration. Aqueous penicillin G reaches greater concentrations than procaine or benzathine penicillin. Concentrations remain detectable for ≥ 12 h. Of the aminopenicillins, both ampicillin and parenteral amoxicillin reach adequate CNS concentrations; however, orally administered amoxicillin resulted in much lower concentrations. Nafcillin and piperacillin are the final two penicillins with pediatric data: their penetration is erratic at best. Cephalosporins vary greatly in regard to their CSF penetration. Few first- and second-generation cephalosporins are able to reach higher CSF concentrations. Cefuroxime is the only exception and is usually avoided due to its adverse effects and slower sterilization of the CSF than third-generation agents. Ceftriaxone, cefotaxime, ceftazidime, cefixime and cefepime have been studied in children and are all able to adequately penetrate the CSF. As with penicillins, concentrations are greatest in the presence of meningeal inflammation. Meropenem and imipenem are the only carbapenems with pediatric data. Imipenem reaches higher CSF concentrations; however, meropenem is preferred due to its lower incidence of seizures. Aztreonam has also demonstrated favorable penetration but only one study has been completed in children. Both chloramphenicol and sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim (cotrimoxazole) penetrate into the CNS well; however, significant toxicities limit their use. The small size and minimal protein binding of fosfomycin contribute to its favorable CNS PK. Although rarely used, it achieves higher concentrations in the presence of inflammation and accumulation is possible. Linezolid reaches high CSF concentrations; however, more frequent dosing might be required in infants due to their increased elimination. Metronidazole also has very limited information but it demonstrated favorable results similar to adult data; CSF concentrations even exceeded plasma concentrations at certain time points. Rifampin (rifampicin) demonstrated good CNS penetration after oral administration. Vancomycin demonstrates poor CNS penetration after intravenous administration. When combined with intraventricular therapy, CNS concentrations are much greater. Of the antituberculosis agents, isoniazid, pyrazinamide and streptomycin have been studied in children. Isoniazid and pyrazinamide have favorable CSF penetration. Streptomycin appears to produce unpredictable CSF levels. No pediatric-specific data are available for clindamycin, daptomycin, macrolides, tetracyclines, and fluoroquinolones. Daptomycin, fluoroquinolones, and tetracyclines have demonstrated favorable CNS penetration in adults; however, data are limited due to their potential pediatric-specific toxicities and newness within the marketplace. Macrolides and clindamycin have demonstrated poor CNS penetration in adults and thus have not been studied in pediatrics.

Emerging research suggests that antioxidant gene expression has the potential to suppress the development of gastroparesis. However, direct genetic evidence that definitively supports this concept is lacking. We used mice carrying a targeted disruption of Nfe2l2, the gene that encodes the transcription factor NRF2 and directs antioxidant Phase II gene expression, as well as mice with a targeted disruption of Gclm, the modifier subunit for glutamate-cysteine ligase, to test the hypothesis that defective antioxidant gene expression contributes to development of gastroparesis. Although expression of heme oxygenase-1 remained unchanged, expression of GCLC, GCLM, SOD1, and CAT was down- buy chloromycetin regulated in gastric tissue from Nrf2(-/-) mice compared to wild-type animals. Tetrahydrobiopterin oxidation was significantly elevated and nitrergic relaxation was impaired in Nrf2(-/-) mouse gastric tissue. In vitro studies showed a significant decrease in NO release in Nrf2(-/-) mouse gastric tissue. Nrf2(-/-) mice displayed delayed gastric emptying. The use of Gclm(-/-) mice demonstrated that the loss of glutamate-cysteine ligase function enhanced tetrahydrobiopterin oxidation while impairing nitrergic relaxation. These results provide genetic evidence that loss of antioxidant gene expression can contribute to the development of gastroparesis and suggest that NRF2 represents a potential therapeutic target.

The treatment of multidrug-resistant enterococcal infections continues to be a challenge for clinicians. Glycopeptide and beta-lactam resistance is now a common feature of the majority of Enterococcus faecium hospital isolates, and resistance to aminoglycosides, quinupristin-dalfopristin, linezolid and daptomycin further complicates the problem. New antibiotics, such as tigecycline, lipoglycopeptides (dalbavancin, oritavancin and telavancin) and cephalosporins with activity against Enterococcus faecalis (ceftobiprole and ceftaroline), may have potential activity against certain resistant enterococcal strains in specific clinical settings, as may some older antibiotics, such as ampicillin, chloramphenicol, doxycycline, minocycline and nitrofurantoin. However, the treatment of endovascular infections (particularly endocarditis, where bactericidal therapy is important for optimal cure rates) caused by resistant enterococci continues to be an immense buy chloromycetin challenge even with the availability of new agents. The optimal therapy for these infections is not well established and clinical data are usually limited to case reports with conflicting results. Therefore, treatment decisions may have to be based on animal models and sporadic experiences and the best approach is for the physician to consider carefully each patient on a case by case manner and gather all the clinical and microbiological information possible regarding species identification and susceptibilities in order to choose a therapeutic regimen that would appear to be active.

The aim of this study was to investigate the evolution with time of ceftiofur-resistant Escherichia coli clinical isolates from pigs in Québec, Canada, between 1997 and 2012 with respect to pathotypes, clones and antimicrobial resistance. Eighty-five ceftiofur-resistant E. coli isolates were obtained from the OIE (World Organisation for Animal Health) Reference Laboratory for Escherichia coli. The most prevalent pathovirotypes were enterotoxigenic E. coli (ETEC):F4 (40%), extraintestinal pathogenic E. coli (ExPEC) (16.5%) and Shiga toxin-producing Asacol Hd 800 Mg Canada E. coli (STEC):F18 (8.2%). Susceptibility testing to 15 antimicrobial agents revealed a high prevalence of resistance to 13 antimicrobials, with all isolates being multidrug-resistant. blaCMY-2 (96.5%) was the most frequently detected β-lactamase gene, followed by blaTEM (49.4%) and blaCTX-M (3.5%). Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) applied to 45 representative E. coli isolates revealed that resistance to ceftiofur is spread both horizontally and clonally. In addition, the emergence of extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing E. coli isolates carrying blaCTX-M was observed in 2011 and 2012 in distinct clones. The most predominant plasmid incompatibility (Inc) groups were IncFIB, IncI1, IncA/C and IncFIC. Resistance to gentamicin, kanamycin and chloramphenicol as well as the frequency of blaTEM and IncA/C significantly decreased over the study period, whereas the frequency of IncI1 and multidrug resistance to seven antimicrobial categories significantly increased. These findings reveal that extended-spectrum cephalosporin-resistant porcine E. coli isolates in Québec belong to several different clones with diverse antimicrobial resistance patterns and plasmids. Furthermore, blaCMY-2 was the major β-lactamase gene in these isolates. From 2011, we report the emergence of blaCTX-M in distinct clones.

We isolated 481 organisms from 378 peritoneal fluid specimens, collected from 135 patients (45 children, 90 adults). There were 191 episodes of peritonitis in children (mean 4.2+/-3.5, range 1 - 15) compared to 187 in adults (2.1+/-1.9, range 1 - 10) (p< 0.001). Two or more episodes occurred in 30 of 45 children (67%) compared to 33 of 90 adults (37%) (p < 0.001).The number of different organisms/patient as well as the total number of isolates/patient were significantly greater in children (respectively, 2.8+/-2.3, range 1 - 12; and 5.3+/-5.2, range 1 - 27) than in adults (2.0+/-1.3, range 1 - 6; and 2.7+/-2.4, range 1 - 10) (p< 0.005). After Staphylococcus epidermidis, S. aureus was the most frequently isolated organism, occurring in 18% of episodes in adults and 12% of episodes in children (p< 0.01). Twenty-two of 33 fungal isolates (67%) in children were Candida parapsilosis compared to 3 of 24 (12%) in adults (p < 0.001). Subanalysis of multiple episodes revealed that Pseudomonas and Candida occurred significantly more often in children (p< 0.01), whereas S. aureus occurred more often in adults (p< 0.001). In polymicrobial episodes S. epidermidis occurred more often in adults (p < 0.05). Significant differences in Cialis 5mg Daily Use Review susceptibilities to ampicillin, ceftriaxone, chloramphenicol, and gentamicin were found between children and adults (p< 0.05 - 0.001).

In the present paper we describe the synthesis and toxicity studies of well-defined tailor made oligo-[R,S]-3-hydroxybutyrates (OHBs). The results indicate potential applicability of these nano-polymers as drug delivery carriers. Several OHBs of number average molecular weight (M(n)) ranging from 800 to 2400 have been synthesized and tested on transformed hamster V79 fibroblasts and murine melanoma B16(F10) cells using the 3-[4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl]2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) based drug resistance and clonogenic survival assays. We show that 96-h incubation of cells with 1-9 microg/ml of OHBs did not Indocin Sr Medication affect cell viability. Incubation of OHBs with rat hepatoma FTO-2B cells stably transfected with chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (CAT) gene ligated to heat-inducible hsp70i gene promoter demonstrated that OHBs did not induce cellular stress response. Finally, we demonstrate that doxorubicin conjugated with OHB is effectively taken up by murine melanoma B16(F10) cells in vitro and localizes in the cytoplasm. These data show for the first time that tailor-made biodegradable and biocompatible oligomers of 3-hydroxybutyric acid can be taken into consideration as effective, non-toxic vectors for delivery of drugs in a conjugated form.

MRSA-induced keratitis in rabbit was used to evaluate the therapeutic effect of F. sycomorus leaves and C. procera latex extracts. Within the 6 rabbit groups tested, group 1 received sterilized saline, while other groups (2 to 6) received 100 μl of intrastromal injections of 1.5×10(3) colony forming unit (cfu) ml(-1) of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). After 12 hours, groups 3 to 6 also received chloramphenicol, aqueous extract of Detrol Dosage Forms C. procera latex, aqueous and alcoholic extracts of F. sycomorus leaves, respectively 3 times daily for 12 successive days. The tested extracts inhibited MRSA growth in vitro (i.e. on culture medium). Colony counts in cornea discs from groups 3 to 6 were significantly reduced (P ≤ 0.001) compared to group 2 (untreated). Clinical signs of keratitis were observed on group 2 until the end of experiment. In groups 3 to 6, gradual recovery was observed and signs disappeared by the 12(th) DPI (days post inoculation). Only mild symptoms persisted in group 5 (aqueous extract of leaves). In group 3 and 5, cornea, iris, ciliary body and conjunctiva showed mild leukocytic infiltration and depigmentation of melanin cells while recovery of cornea and iris was observed in groups 4 and 6. In conclusion, the used extracts have potential therapeutic effects on MRSA-induced keratitis in rabbit.

A high performance liquid chromatographic method with fluorescence detection for the determination of chloramphenicol (CAP) residues in milk was developed. Although CAP itself is non-fluorescent the aromatic nitro group of CAP could be reduced to aromatic primary amino group and fluorescamine can be used as a selective reagent for primary amines. Therefore, the CAP was derivatized with fluorescamine prior to injection in this project. The HPLC method was performed on a Diamond C18 column (250 mm x 4.6 mm i. d., 4.0 microm) with the mobile phase composed of sodium acetate buffer (0.02 mol/L, pH 6.0) -acetonitrile-tetrahydrofuran (76: 16: 8, v/v/v). The flow rate of the mobile phase was set at 1.0 mL/min, and the column was maintained at 40 degrees C. Analytes were detected by a fluorescence detector at 410 nm excitation and 508 nm emission wavelength. The standard curve was linear in the range from 0.4 microg/L to 800 microg/L. The limit of detection (LOD) was 0.2 microg/L, and the limit of quantitation (LOQ) was 0.4 microg/L. Overall recoveries were between 66.6% and 92.8% with relative standard deviations between 4.5% and 9.4%. The procedure provides a Paracetamol Tablets Side Effects rapid, reliable and sensitive method for the determination of CAP in milk.

SPAN-Xb is a novel cancer-testis antigen in multiple myeloma (MM). In this Ventolin Tablet 2mg Dosage study, we determined the mechanisms regulating SPAN-Xb expression in MM. SPAN-Xb promoter sequence was first cloned into the CAT-reporter vector to determine the role of promoter methylation in the regulation of gene expression. Tumor cells were treated with 5-azacytidine and a panel of cytokines were used to determine their ability to induce SPAN-Xb expression. Bisulfite conversion with sequence analysis was applied to a panel of tumor cells and normal tissues to correlate the CpG dinucleotide hypomethylation and SPAN-Xb expression. We found that SPAN-Xb promoter function could be silenced by methylation. 5-Azacytidine induced promoter hypomethylation and resulted in SPAN-Xb expression, at both the transcript and protein levels. Hypomethylation of the CpG dinucleotides at positions -310, -307, -299 and -221 within the SPAN-Xb promoter strongly predict for SPAN-Xb expression. Both IL-7 and GM-CSF were also able to upregulate the expression of SPAN-Xb in myeloma cells, but only after the promoter sequence has been hypomethylated. Our results provide the first evidence showing the role of promoter methylation in the primary regulation of SPAN-Xb and the ability of IL-7 and GM-CSF to further enhance SPAN-Xb gene and protein expression in myeloma cells.

We have previously shown that Noroxin Norfloxacin Generic transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) increases type VII collagen gene (COL7A1) expression in human dermal fibroblasts in culture (Mauviel, A., Lapière, J.-C., Halcin, C., Evans, C. H., and Uitto, J. (1994) J. Biol. Chem. 269, 25-28). To gain insight into the molecular mechanisms underlying the up-regulation of COL7A1 by this growth factor, we performed transient cell transfections with a series of 5'-deletion promoter/chloramphenicol acetyltransferase reporter gene constructs. We identified a 68-base pair region between nucleotides -524 and -456, relative to the transcription start site, as critical for TGF-beta response. Using electrophoresis mobility shift assays (EMSAs) with an oligonucleotide spanning the region from -524 to -444, we discovered that a TGF-beta-specific protein-DNA complex was formed as early as 11 min after TGF-beta stimulation and persisted for 1 h after addition of the growth factor. Deletion analysis of the TGF-betaresponsive region of the COL7A1 promoter by EMSA identified segment -496/-444 as the minimal fragment capable of binding the TGF-beta-induced complex. Furthermore, two distinct segments, -496/-490 and -453/-444, appeared to be necessary for TGF-beta-induced DNA binding activity, suggesting a bipartite element. Supershift experiments with a pan-Smad antibody unambiguously identified the TGF-beta-induced complex as containing a Smad member. This is the first direct identification of binding of endogenous Smad proteins to regulatory sequences of a human gene.

Oncostatin M (OSM) stimulated CCL2 expression in primary human osteoblasts and U2OS cells. In U2OS cells, STAT-1 and STAT-3 were involved in OSM-stimulated CCL2 expression, and both the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase/Akt and MEK/ERK pathways were implicated in the activation of these STATs. STAT-1 and STAT Ponstel Generic Cost -3 modulated the expression of c-Fos and directly transactivated the CCL2 promoter. Moreover, EMSA showed formation of a DNA-protein complex containing STAT-1, STAT-3, and interestingly, c-Fos. Immunoprecipitation confirmed the binding between c-Fos and STAT-1/3. Reporter assay revealed synergistic attenuation of CCL2 promoter activity by shRNA targeting of STAT-1, STAT-3, and c-Fos. AG-490 suppressed OSM-stimulated activation of STAT-1/3 and synthesis of CCL2 in vitro and diminished the severity of CIA and the number of CCL2-synthesizing osteoblasts in vivo.

Approximately 40 samples of animal feces, drinking water, feed, bedding, pine wood shavings, compost, and manure slurry were collected from two animal research farms (one dairy and one poultry) and analyzed for ceftriaxone-resistant bacteria. Our study revealed that the total percentage of aerobic bacteria with reduced susceptibility to ceftriaxone (minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) > or = 16 micro g/mL) ranged from 0.9% to 10.8% in dairy feces and from 0.05% to 3.93% in chicken feces. The percentages of ceftriaxone-resistant bacteria (MIC > or = 64 micro g/mL) were in the range of 0.01% - 2.3% in dairy feces and 0.01% - 0.79% in chicken feces. Environmental samples contained a wide range of ceftriaxone-resistant bacterial populations. Among those environmental samples, fresh pine wood shavings used as chicken bedding contained the highest percentages (41.5%) of ceftriaxone-resistant bacteria, as determined by a plating method. A total of 105 ceftriaxone-resistant (MIC > or = 128 micro g/mL) bacterial isolates Antabuse Medicine were isolated from the above samples and tested for resistance to nine antibiotics: ampicillin, ceftriaxone, streptomycin, kanamycin, gentamicin, chloramphenicol, tetracycline, ciprofloxacin, and nalidixic acid. The most prevalent resistance pattern (34.3%) among isolates included resistance to all nine antibiotics. Results from this study suggest that ceftriaxone-resistant bacteria exist in farm environments, and the ceftriaxone resistance was frequently associated with resistance to multiple antibiotics. Environmental sources such as pine wood shavings used as bedding can be a potential reservoir for transmitting the multidrug-resistant bacteria.

Streptococcus mitis, an important member of viridans streptococci, is found in the normal flora of the oropharynx, gastrointestinal tract, female genital tract and skin. Although it is of low pathogenicity and virulence, it may cause serious infections in immunocompromised patients. Meningitis caused by S.mitis has been described in patients with previous spinal anesthesia, neurosurgical procedure, malignancy, bacterial endocarditis with neurological complications and alcoholics, but it is rare in patients who are previously healthy. In this report, a rare case of meningoencephalitis caused by S.mitis developed in a previously healthy child has been presented. A previously healthy eight-year-old girl who presented with fever, altered state of consciousness, and headache was hospitalized in intensive care unit with the diagnosis of meningitis. Past history revealed that she was treated with amoxicillin-clavulanate for acute sinusitis ten days before her admission. Whole blood count revealed the followings: hemoglobin 13 g/dl, white blood cell count 18.6 x 109/L (90% neutrophils), platelet count 200 x 109/L and 150 leucocytes were detected on cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) examination. Protein and glucose levels of CSF were 80 mg/dl and 40 mg/dl (concomitant blood glucose 100 mg/dl), respectively. Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed widespread white matter lesions, and alpha-hemolytic streptococci were grown in CSF culture. The isolate was identified as S.mitis with conventional methods, and also confirmed by VITEK2 (bioMerieux, France) and API 20 STREP (bioMerieux, France) systems. Isolate was found susceptible to penicillin, erythromycin, clindamycin, tetracycline, cefotaxime, vancomycin and chloramphenicol. Regarding the etiology, echocardiography revealed no vegetation nor valve pathology, and peripheral blood smear showed no abnormality. Immunoglobulin and complement levels were within normal limits. Ongoing inflammation in maxillary sinuses detected in brain MRI suggested that meningitis could be related to previous sinus infection. After 14 days of ceftriaxone treatment, the patient was discharged from the hospital with cure. The aim of this case presentation was to emphasize that S.mitis may cause meningitis and white matter lesions in previously healthy children with concomitant sinusitis.

A population-based case-control study of aplastic anemia has been conducted in Thailand since 1989. This is the largest single epidemiologic study of aplastic anemia ever performed. The objectives have been to document the incidence of the disease and to study the etiologic factors in a case-control analysis. The overall incidence of aplastic anemia was 3.9 per million per year in Bangkok, two times higher than in the West; 3.0 per million in Songkla; and 5.0 per million in Khonkaen. A difference appears in the age incidence pattern between Bangkok and the two rural areas, with double incidence peaks at ages 15 to 24 and over 60 in Bangkok, yet a more steady increase in incidence with increasing age in the rural areas. With regard to possible etiologic factors, there is a strong inverse association between incidence of the disease and socioeconomic status as determined by total household income and years of education. There are also significant positive associations with occupational exposure to solvents and agricultural pesticides. Only a few drugs, including thiazide diuretics, sulfonamide, and mebendazole are associated with the disease. There continues to be no evidence of association with chloramphenicol. The etiologic fraction for all associated drugs is lower than 5%. Household pesticide use is not associated with the disease. Exposure to hepatitis A virus is a risk indicator for aplastic anemia and may be a surrogate marker for another enteric infectious agent.

Penicillin nonsusceptibility (PNS) increased significantly over time (15.6%, 17.8%, and 24.8%; p=0.003). Levels of PNS have changed as well: in 2006-2008, 9.1% of the isolates had an MIC ≥2 μg/ml versus 7.7% in 2002-2005 and 3.4% in 1998-2001. The PNS increase was particularly marked in pediatric isolates (21.4%, 25.5%, and 43.3%; p=0.001). There was no significant difference between the rates of PNS in invasive and noninvasive isolates from children, whereas in adults noninvasive isolates were more penicillin nonsusceptible. Amoxicillin and ceftriaxone nonsusceptible isolates were very rare. An increase of resistance rates was also noticed for erythromycin (9.4%, 12.2%, and 14.4%), tetracycline (20%, 18.6%, and 30.5%), and chloramphenicol (5.6%, 5.6%, and 8.1%). Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole resistance rates remained stable (22.8%, 20%, and 23.8%). Proportions of dual nonsusceptibility to penicillin and erythromycin, increased from 5.6% to 8.9%. Multiple drug resistance (resistance to 3 or more antibiotic classes) was found in 0%, 2.4%, and 7.7% of all isolates, respectively.

The aims of this study were to determine the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) values of vancomycin, teicoplanin, daptomycin, quinupristin/dalfopristin, linezolid, tigecycline, chloramphenicol, rifampicin, ofloxacin and tetracycline and to investigate the reduced vancomycin susceptibility among methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strains isolated in hospitals located in different geographical regions of Turkey. A total of 100 MRSA strains isolated from patients (of which 50% were from intensive care units) hospitalized in seven centers in Turkey [Istanbul (n= 15), Ankara (n= 15), Izmir (n= 15), Adana (n= 15), Diyarbakir (n=15), Erzincan (n= 15), Van (n= 10)], between August 2013 - August 2014, were included in the study. Fourty-three strains were isolated from blood, whereas 21 were from lower respiratory tract, 17 from wounds, eight from catheters, six from urine, four from nasal swab and one from cerebrospinal fluid samples. Methicillin resistance of the isolates was determined by using cefoxitin (30 µg) disk with standard disk diffusion method, while the MIC values of other antibiotics were determined with E-test in accordance with the recommendations of Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI). MIC results obtained for quinupristin-dalfopristin (Q/D) were evaluated according to the CLSI criteria used for methicillin-susceptible S.aureus and for tigecycline according to the criteria recommended by the Food and Drug Administration for MRSA. Primarily, agar screening method (ASM) was used for determination of vancomycin-intermediate S.aureus (VISA) and heterogeneous VISA (hVISA) strains. Brain heart infusion agar containing 6 µg/ml vancomycin was used in ASM, and the strains with suspicion of VISA/hVISA were screened by standard E-test and macro E-test methods. All MRSA strains were susceptible to vancomycin, teicoplanin, daptomycin, Q/D and linezolid by E-test method; and their rates of susceptibility for tigecycline, chloramphenicol, rifampicin, ofloxacin and tetracycline were detected as 89%, 97%, 40%, 39% and 32%, respectively. MIC50/MIC90 values were 1.5/2 µg/ml for vancomycin, 2/4 µg/ml for teicoplanin, 0.19/0.38 µg/ml for daptomycin, 0.19/0.38 µg/ml for Q/D, 0.75/1 µg/ml for linezolid, 0.19/0.75 µg/ml for tigecycline, 3/6 µg/ml for chloramphenicol, 32/32 µg/ml for rifampicin, 32/32 µg/ml for ofloxacin and 32/64 µg/ml for tetracycline, respectively. For the evaluation of reduced vancomycin susceptibility, 2% (2/100) of MRSA strains were defined as VISA and 5% (5/100) as hVISA with ASM. One of those seven isolates identified as VISA/hVISA with ASM was evaluated as suspected hVISA by using both standard E-test and macro E-test methods. In conclusion, no MRSA resistant strain to vancomycin, teicoplanin, daptomycin, Q/D and linezolid was determined in our study. However tigecycline resistance (11%) was found higher than expected. As the glycopeptide resistance is increasing in the world and because of the intense use of these drugs in Turkey, the rates of vancomycin resistance among MRSA strains should be investigated periodically.

Pathogenic Leptospira spp., the causative agents of leptospirosis, are slow-growing Gram-negative spirochetes. Isolation of Leptospira from clinical samples and testing of antimicrobial susceptibility are difficult and time-consuming. Here, we describe the development of a new solid medium that facilitates more-rapid growth of Leptospira spp. and the use of this medium to evaluate the Etest's performance in determining antimicrobial MICs to drugs in common use for leptospirosis. The medium was developed by evaluating the effects of numerous factors on the growth rate of Leptospira interrogans strain NR-20157. These included the type of base agar, the concentration of rabbit serum (RS), and the concentration and duration of CO(2) incubation during the initial period of culture. The highest growth rate of NR-20157 was achieved using a Noble agar base supplemented with 10% RS (named LVW agar), with an initial incubation at 30°C in 5% CO(2) for 2 days prior to continuous culture in air at 30°C. These conditions were used to develop the Etest for three species, L. interrogans (NR-20161), L. kirschnerii (NR-20327), and L. borgpetersenii (NR-20151). The MICs were read on day 7 for all samples. The Etest was then performed on 109 isolates of pathogenic Leptospira spp. The MIC(90) values for penicillin G, doxycycline, cefotaxime, ceftriaxone, and chloramphenicol were 0.64 units/ml and 0.19, 0.047, 0.5, and 2 μg/ml, respectively. The use of LVW agar, which enables rapid growth, isolation of single colonies, and simple antimicrobial susceptibility testing for Leptospira spp., provides an opportunity for new areas of fundamental and applied research.

A total of 184 resistant Salmonella enterica isolated from poultry and swine were investigated for the distribution of and associations between various antimicrobial resistance genes. All the isolates were screened for the presence of class 2 and 3 integrase genes and 18 resistance genes corresponding to their resistance phenotypes. None of the isolates carried class 2 and 3 integrons. The investigated resistance genes were responsible for resistance in 78% of the isolates. All the strains harboring more than one resistance gene were resistant to three or more antimicrobials. The bla(TEM), cmlA, tetA, dfrA12, sul3, aadA1 genes were detected in the majority of strains resistant to ampicillin (87%), chloramphenicol (63%), tetracycline (60%), trimethoprim (42%), sulphonamides (42%) and streptomycin/spectinomycin (61%), respectively. Two ciprofloxacin-resistant isolates had a single point mutation leading to Ser-83-Phe in GyrA or Thr-57-Ser in ParC. Statistical analysis revealed good correlation between the presence of antimicrobial resistance genes and corresponding resistance phenotype (p<0.01).

Antimicrobial resistance of pathogenic bacteria can result in therapy failure, increased hospitalization, and increased risk of death. In Poland, Salmonella spp. is a major bacterial agent of food poisoning. The majority of studies on antimicrobial resistance in Salmonella spp. isolates from food have focused on meat products as the source of this pathogen. In comparison, this study examines the antimicrobial susceptibility of Salmonella spp. isolated from retail food products other than meat in Poland.

Molecular typing showed 3 predominant PFGE types with 6 subtypes among these isolates. High rates of antimicrobial resistance to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (66.7%), tetracycline (66.7%), chloramphenicol (66.7%), ampicillin (55.6%), streptomycin (55.6%), kanamycin (55.6%), and gentamicin (44.4%) were found. All 9 isolates were susceptible to ceftriaxone, cefixime, imipenem, amikacin, and ciprofloxacin. Isolates with PFGE type P1 and subtype P1-1 contained a class 1 integron and resistance genes sulI and str (p=0.048). Plasmids of 3 to 20 kb were found in all isolates belonging to PFGE type P1, subtypes P1-1 and P1-2, which were associated with multidrug resistance (p=0.012) and the resistant gene bla(TEM) (p=0.048). There was no SGI1 found in these 9 isolates.

The aim of the current study was to determine the virulence factors, serogroups, and antibiotic resistance properties of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli isolated from chicken meat samples. A total of 422 chicken meat samples were collected from 5 townships of Iran. Specimens were immediately transferred to the laboratory in a cooler with an ice pack. Samples were cultured, and the positive culture samples were analyzed by PCR assays. Finally, the antimicrobial susceptibility test was performed using the disk diffusion method in Mueller-Hinton agar. According to the results, out of 422 samples, 146 (34.59%) were confirmed to be E. coli positive and among E. coli-positive samples, 51 (34.93%) and 31 (21.23%) were from attaching and effacing E. coli (AEEC) and enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC) subgroups, respectively. All of the EHEC-positive samples had all stx1, eaeA, and ehly virulence genes, whereas only 5 (9.80%) of AEEC subgroup had all stx1, stx2, and eaeA genes. As the data revealed, O157 was the most prevalent and O111 was the least prevalent strains in the Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) population. Among STEC strains, sulI and blaSHV had the highest and lowest incidence rate, respectively. There was a high resistance to tetracycline (76.82%), followed by chloramphenicol (73.17%) and nitrofurantoin (63.41%), but there was low resistance to cephalotine (7.31%) antibiotics in isolated strains. Results shows that the PCR technique has a high performance for detection of serogroups, virulence genes, and antibiotic resistance genes in STEC strains. This study is the first prevalence report of detection of virulence genes, serogroups, and antibiotic resistance properties of STEC strains isolated from chicken meat samples in Iran. Based on the results, chicken meat is one of the main sources of STEC strains and its virulence factors in Iran, so an accurate meat inspection would reduce disease outbreaks.

Salmonella enterica infections are common causes of bloodstream infection in low-resource areas, where they may be difficult to distinguish from other febrile illnesses and may be associated with a high case fatality ratio. Microbiologic culture of blood or bone marrow remains the mainstay of laboratory diagnosis. Antimicrobial resistance has emerged in Salmonella enterica, initially to the traditional first-line drugs chloramphenicol, ampicillin, and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole. Decreased fluoroquinolone susceptibility and then fluoroquinolone resistance have developed in association with chromosomal mutations in the quinolone resistance-determining region of genes encoding DNA gyrase and topoisomerase IV and also by plasmid-mediated resistance mechanisms. Resistance to extended-spectrum cephalosporins has occurred more often in nontyphoidal than in typhoidal Salmonella strains. Azithromycin is effective for the management of uncomplicated typhoid fever and may serve as an alternative oral drug in areas where fluoroquinolone resistance is common. In 2013, CLSI lowered the ciprofloxacin susceptibility breakpoints to account for accumulating clinical, microbiologic, and pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic data suggesting that revision was needed for contemporary invasive Salmonella infections. Newly established CLSI guidelines for azithromycin and Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi were published in CLSI document M100 in 2015.

The efficacy of the ethanol-inducible alc transgene expression system, derived from the filamentous fungus Aspergillus nidulans, has been demonstrated in transgenic tomato. Two direct comparisons have been made. First, this study has utilized two transgenic lines carrying distinct reporter genes (chloramphenicol acetyltransferase and beta-glucuronidase) to distinguish aspects of induction determined by the nature of the gene/gene product rather than that of the plant. Second, comparisons have been made to data generated in other species in order to identify any species-specific effects. The induction profiles for different genes in different species have shown remarkable similarity indicating the broad applicability of this gene switch. While there are minor differences observed between species, these probably arise from diversity in their metabolism. A series of potential alternative inducers have also been tested, revealing that ethanol (through metabolism to acetaldehyde) is better than other alcohols and ketones included in this study. Expression driven by alc was demonstrated to vary spatially, the upper younger leaves having higher activity than the lower older leaves; this will be important for some applications, and for experimental design. The highest levels of activity from ethanol-inducible transgene expression were determined to be the equivalent of those from the constitutive Cauliflower Mosaic Virus 35S promoter. This suggests that the alc system could be an important tool for plant functional genomics.

Quinazolinediones (diones) are fluoroquinolone-like inhibitors of bacterial gyrase and DNA topoisomerase IV. To assess activity against mycobacteria, C-8-methoxy dione derivatives were compared with cognate fluoroquinolones by using cultured Mycobacterium smegmatis. Diones exhibited higher MIC values than fluoroquinolones; however, MICs for fluoroquinolone-resistant gyrA mutants, normalized to the MIC for wild-type cells, were lower. Addition of a 3-amino group to the 2,4-dione core increased relative activity against mutants, while alteration of the 8-methoxy group to a methyl or of the 2,4-dione core to a 1,3-dione core lowered activity against mutants. A GyrA G89C bacterial variant was strikingly susceptible to most of the diones tested; in contrast, low susceptibility to fluoroquinolones was observed. Many of the bacteriostatic differences between diones and fluoroquinolones were explained by interactions at the N terminus of GyrA helix IV revealed by recently published X-ray structures of drug-topoisomerase-DNA complexes. When lethal activity was normalized to the MIC in order to minimize the effects of drug uptake, efflux, and ternary complex formation, a 3-amino-2,4-dione exhibited killing activity comparable to that of a cognate fluoroquinolone. Surprisingly, the lethal activity of the dione was inhibited less by chloramphenicol than that of the cognate fluoroquinolone. This observation adds the 2,4-dione structural motif to the list of structural features known to impart lethality to fluoroquinolone-like compounds in the absence of protein synthesis, a phenomenon that is not explained by X-ray structures of drug-enzyme-DNA complexes.

The question of how glucocorticoid, progesterone, androgen, and mineralocorticoid receptors can generate distinct patterns of gene expression despite similar, if not identical, DNA sequence recognition properties is a central question in steroid biology. This study addresses the hypothesis that glucocorticoid and progesterone receptors can differentially utilize the promoter context created by a series of receptor recognition sites. This hypothesis predicts that for different receptors an individual (often suboptimal) binding site contributes to the overall response element activity to a different degree. Therefore, mutations to an individual binding site of a multipartite hormone response element may differentially affect the response to different steroids. This study tests this hypothesis by introducing mutations into a receptor recognition site that is part of a hormone responsive promoter derived from the mouse mammary tumor virus. We find that weakening one site of a multipartite element differentially affects glucocorticoid and progestin signaling both in fibroblasts and in mammary carcinoma cells. A similar test was done in a simplified promoter context comprised only of a TATA box and a pair of receptor recognition sites. Mutations introduced into one of these sites impaired glucocorticoid response more than the progestin response. However, high receptor expression can partially overcome the effect of some target site mutations. Thus both receptor expression levels and the inherent ability to utilize the context created by a multipartite response element contribute to quantitative differences in the response to receptors that share DNA sequence recognition properties.

Despite the constantly increasing need for new antimicrobial agents, antibiotic drug discovery and development seem to have greatly decelerated in recent years. Presented with the significant problem of advancing antimicrobial resistance, the global scientific community has attempted to find alternative solutions; one of the most promising ones is the evaluation and use of old antibiotic compounds. A number of old antibiotic compounds, such as aminoglycosides, chloramphenicol, and tetracycline, are re-emerging as valuable alternatives for the treatment of difficult-to-treat infections. This study examined the in vitro potency for biofilm formation of five isolates (Klebsiella sp., Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Achromobacter sp., Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Bacillus pumilis) and the effects of antibiotics on these biofilms. Furthermore the quantitative analysis of planktonic, loosely attached cells, and their susceptibility to antibiotics was also determined. Twitching motility was observed to determine any effect in the biofilm forming capability of the isolates. All the isolates tested were efficient biofilm-forming strains in the polypropylene and borosilicate test tubes. Standard bacterial enumeration technique and CV staining produced equivalent results both in biofilm and planktonic assays. The biofilm formation of all the strains was affected in the presence of tetracycline or chloramphenicol. Highly significant decrease (P < 0.01) in biofilm formation was observed by treatment with chloramphenicol compared to tetracycline. In addition, the two antibiotics also affected adversely the planktonic and loosely attached cells of all isolates. Thus, testing the effects of older antibiotics on biofilms may supply useful information in addition to standard in vitro testing, particularly in diseases where biofilm formation is involved in the pathogenesis.
