Chromosomal DNA from several Escherichia coli reference strains was transduced by bacteriophage P1 into E. coli strain K12 W3110 trpA33. Recombination patterns of the transductants were determined by restriction fragment length polymorphism over a 40-kb region centering on a single marker in the tryptophan operon.

He's not a dentist, but Christopher Miller is focused on fluoride. Two studies from his Brandeis University lab provide new insights into the mechanisms that allow bacteria to resist fluoride toxicity, information that could eventually help inform new strategies for treating harmful bacterial diseases.

BACKGROUND:Although genes on the chromosome are organized in a fixed order, the spatial correlations in transcription have not been systematically evaluated. We used a combination of genomic and signal processing techniques to investigate the properties of transcription in the genome of Escherichia coli K12 as a function of the position of genes on the chromosome.RESULTS:Spectral analysis of transcriptional series revealed the existence of statistically significant patterns in the spatial series of transcriptional activity.

In a 2011 germ study conducted by the National Sanitation Foundation International, 22 families swabbed 30 everyday household items ranging from kitchen surfaces to cell phones to pet items to measure contamination levels of yeast, mold and coliform bacteria . The item most frequently used to clean dishes and countertops was actually the germiest place found in most homes.

Mutants of Escherichia coli resistant to the antibiotic clorobiocin are also coumermycin resistant, and the mutation to resistance in at least one mutant was mapped near gyrB. We conclude, therefore, that clorobiocin inhibits deoxyribonucleic acid gyrase, and the drug was used to probe the role of this enzyme in vivo.
The mother of a 4-year-old Oregon girl who died after being diagnosed with an E. coli infection says the first symptoms appeared two days before the Labor Day weekend, when Serena Profitt and her younger sister visited a public swimming pool and then threw up. Rachel Profitt of Otis told The Oregonian that 2-year-old Hannah bounced back, but Serena was sick again the next day.
Gisele Peirano, Patricia A. Bradford, Krystyna M. Kazmierczak, Robert E. Badal, Meredith Hackel, Daryl J. Hoban, and Johann D.D. Pitout We characterized Escherichia coli ST131 isolates among 116 carbapenemase-producing strains. Of isolates from 16 countries collected during 2008-2013, 35% belonged to ST131 and were associated with bla KPC, H 30 lineage, and virotype C. This study documents worldwide incidents of resistance to "last resort" antimicrobial drugs among a common pathogen in a successful sequence type.

A powerful new antiseptic agent, called ozone nano-bubble water, holds promise for the treatment of periodontitis, or severe gum infections, according to research published in the journal Science and Technology of Advanced Materials. Changes in the microstructure of bacterial cells exposed to NBW3 were assessed using a transmission electron micrograph .
