Sensors' array of aspiration ion mobility spectrometer as a tool for bacteria discrimination.

Sensors' array of aspiration ion mobility spectrometer as a tool for bacteria discrimination. Talanta. 2020 Jan 01;206:120233 Authors: Bocos-Bintintan V, Thomas CLP, Ratiu IA Abstract The possibility of achieving bacterial discrimination using a miniaturized aspiration ion mobility spectrometer model ChemPro-100i (Environics Oy) has been tested by interrogating the headspace air samples above in vitro bacterial cultures of three species - Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis and Staphylococcus aureus, respectively. The ChemPro-100i highly integrated seven sensor array, composed of one a-IMS cell, three MOS (metal oxide sensors), one FET (field effect transistor) sensor and two SC (semiconductor) sensors, provided enough analytical information to discriminate between the three bacterial species. Statistical data processing using either principal component analysis (PCA) or partial least squares discriminant analysis (PLS-DA) was accomplished. We concluded that although the data from the aspiration-type ion mobility sensor, with its 16 ion detectors, is absolutely sufficient to discriminate between various bacteria using their volatile compounds' chemical profile, the other six sensors deliver additional, valuable information.

The crude extracts showed strong antimicrobial activity against human pathogens. Biologically active compounds were isolated and purified by chromatographic methods. The structures of the pure compounds were elucidated by spectroscopic methods. They were identified as Violaceol I and Violaceol II. These compounds...

In this study, dopamine (DA) was self-polymerized on the surface of Polylactic acid (PLLA)/Hydroxyapatite (HA) nanowire composite fibers to form an adhesive polydopamine (PDA) membrane, and a stable silver-nanoparticles (Ag-NPs) coating layer was constructed on it by electrochemically driven Ag+ coordination and chelation through Polypyrrole (PPy) mediation, achieving steady and slow release of Ag-NPs. With optimized DA soaking time of 24 hours and soaking concentration of 0.5 g·L-1, nanoparticles were uniformly distributed on PLLA/HA/PDA/PPy/Ag composite fibers and the hydrophilicity of the composite fibers was wel...

AbstractA new series of 4-[(substituted benzylidene)-3-[(5-(pyridine-4-yl)-1,3,4-oxadiazole-2-ylthio)-methyl]isoxazol-5(4H)-one (6a –g) and 4-(substituted benzylidene)-3-((benzo[d]thiazol-2-ylthio)methyl)isoxazol-5(4H)-one(8a –g) was synthesized. All the synthesized compounds were screened for antitubercular activity againstMycobacterium tuberculosis H37Ra (ATCC 25177) andMycobacterium bovis BCG (ATCC 35743) and antibacterial activity againstEscherichia coli (NCIM 2576),Pseudomonas flurescence (NCIM 2059),Staphylococcus aureus (NCIM 2602),Bacillus subtilis (NCIM 2162).

Abstract EchAMP, the tenth most abundant transcript expressed in the mammary gland of echidna, has in vitro broad-spectrum antibacterial effects. However, the effects of EchAMP on mastitis, a condition where inflammation is triggered following mammary gland infection, has not been investigated. To investigate the impact of EchAMP against mastitis, EchAMP transgenic mice were generated. In antibacterial assays, the whey fractions of milk from transgenic mice significantly reduced growth of Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa compared with whey fractions from wildtyp...

Polymorphonuclear myeloid-derived suppressor cells (PMN-MDSCs) are implicated in the progression and outcome of a variety of pathological states, from cancer to infection. Our previous work has identified three antimicrobial peptides differentially expressed by PMN-MDSCs compared to conventional neutrophils isolated from dogs, mice, and human patients with cancer. We therefore hypothesized that PMN-MDSCs in dogs with cancer possess antimicrobial activity. In the current work, we observed that exposure of PMN-MDSCs to Gram-negative bacteria (Escherichia coli) increased the expression of reactive oxygen species by the PMN-MD...

This study highlights the investigation of the green fluorescence in NaTb(WO4)2 materials (NaTbW Bulk and NaTbW Nano) synthesized via template free hydrothermal method as a function of particle size and morphology. Herein, we demonstrated the biocompatibility and intracellular green fluorescence of NaTbW Nano samples using HeLa cells for cell imaging applications. Powder X-ray diffraction studies showed that the as synthesized NaTbW Bulk and NaTbW Nano crystallize in the Scheelite like tetragonal crystal system with the I41/a space group.
