GSE131635 Effect of restricted dissolved oxygen on expression of Clostridium difficile toxin A subunit from E. coli.

Contributors : A K Sharma ; J ShiloachSeries Type : Expression profiling by arrayOrganism : Escherichia coliWe used microarray to identify the global gene expression profile of recombinant E.coli culture expressing repeating unit of the C. difficile toxin A (rARU) C-terminal region. Controlled condition batch runs were performed with E.coli expressing rARU at both restricted and unrestricted DO conditions for collecting samples of log and late-log phases at unrestricted and restricted DO.

Authors: Pavlovska OM, Pavlovska KM, Heryak SM, Khmil SV, Gorban NY Abstract The work assessed the state of the intestinal microbiocenosis in 52 puerperae at the in whom the pregnancy developed against the background of the metabolic syndrome. The diagnosis of metabolic syndrome was determined according to the criteria approved by the World Health Organization for pregnant women. The state of intestinal microbiocenosis was assessed by a bacteriological examination of feces immediately after delivery. The content of the main representatives of the obligate microflora (bifidobacteria, lactobacilli, native intestinal ...

Abstract We aimed to systematically review evidence pertaining to the safety and efficacy of nitazoxanide in treating infectious diarrhea. On September 21, 2017, we identified relevant studies using 12 databases. The estimates of the included studies were pooled as a risk ratio (RR). We conducted a network and pairwise random-effects meta-analysis for both direct and indirect comparisons of different organisms that are known to cause diarrhea. The primary and secondary analysis outcomes were clinical response until cessation of illness, parasitological response and adverse events. We included 18 studies in our ana...

Host defense peptides, abundantly secreted by colonic epithelial cells and leukocytes, are proposed to be critical components of an innate immune response in the colon against enteropathogenic bacteria, including Shigella spp., Salmonella spp., Clostridium difficile, and attaching and effacing Escherichia coli and Citrobacter rodentium. These short cationic peptides are bactericidal against both Gram-positive and -negative enteric pathogens, but may also exert killing effects on intestinal luminal microbiota. Simultaneously, these peptides modulate numerous cellular responses crucial for gut defenses, including leukocyte c...

Sommermeyer A variety of activities potentially contribute to the beneficial effects of probiotic bacteria observed in humans. Among these is a direct inhibition of the growth of pathogenic bacteria in the gut. The present study characterizes head-to-head the in-vitro pathogen growth inhibition of clinically relevant infectious bacterial strains by different types of probiotics and a synbiotic. In-vitro growth inhibition of Escherichia (E.) coli EPEC, Shigella (Sh.) sonnei, Salmonella (S.) typhimurium, Klebsiella (K.) pneumoniae and Clostridioides (C.) difficile were determined. Investigated products were a yeast mono...

Abstract Clostridium difficile 630 possesses a cryptic but functional gene cluster vanG Cd homologous to the vanG operon of Enterococcus faecalis. Expression of vanG Cd in the presence of subinhibitory concentrations of vancomycin is accompanied by peptidoglycan amidation on the meso-DAP residue. In this paper, we report the presence of two potential asparagine synthetase genes named asnB and asnB2 in the C. difficile genome whose products were potentially involved in this peptidoglycan structure modification. We found that asnB expression was only induced when C. difficile was grown in the presence of vancomycin,...

Abstract Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI) is one of the most common causes of nosocomial diarrhea in developed countries and the main cause in healthcare settings. This case-control study was designed to evaluate the composition of the gut microbiota dominant bacterial groups in patients with CDI compared to the healthy control subjects. A total of 100 adult subjects involving 50 inpatients with CDI and 50 healthy persons were enrolled in the study. C. difficile isolates were characterized according to the anaerobic culture and presence of toxin genes with multiplex PCR. An ecological analysis was performe...

Differential Effects of "Resurrecting" Csp Pseudoproteases during Clostridioides difficile Spore Germination. Biochem J. 2020 Apr 03;: Authors: Donnelly ML, Forster ER, Rohlfing AE, Shen A Abstract Clostridioides difficileis a spore-forming bacterial pathogen that is the leading cause of hospital-acquired gastroenteritis. C. difficileinfections begin when its spore form germinates in the gut upon sensing bile acids. These germinants induce a proteolytic signaling cascade controlled by three members of the subtilisin-like serine protease family, CspA, CspB, and CspC. Notably, even though CspC...

Antibiotic treatment of patients undergoing complex medical treatments can deplete commensal bacterial strains from the intestinal microbiota, thereby reducing colonization resistance against a wide range of antibiotic-resistant pathogens. Loss of colonization resistance can lead to marked expansion of vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE), Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Escherichia coli in the intestinal lumen, predisposing patients to bloodstream invasion and sepsis. The impact of intestinal domination by these antibiotic-resistant pathogens on mucosal immune defenses and epithelial and mucin-mediated barrier integ...
