Sixteen Lactobacillus plantarum strains, isolated from fermented table olives, were studied for the presence and expression of genes involved in the production of bacteriocins, pheromones and other peptides. The presence of 13 genes that belong to pln locus was monitored, while for the study of gene expression, producer strains were cultured in growth(More)
Biofilm formation is a phenomenon occurring almost wherever microorganisms and surfaces exist in close proximity. This study aimed to evaluate the possible influence of bacterial interactions on the ability of Listeria monocytogenes and Pseudomonas putida to develop a dual-species biofilm community on stainless steel (SS), as well as on the subsequent(More)
A community-based sessile life style is the normal mode of growth and survival for many bacterial species. Under such conditions, cell-to-cell interactions are inevitable and ultimately lead to the establishment of dense, complex and highly structured biofilm populations encapsulated in a self-produced extracellular matrix and capable of coordinated and(More)
Case A 6 month-old boy fractured his right tibia, when he fell from a couch (50 cm height). One month later, he accidently kicked his leg against a desk. He was diagnosed with a fracture of the right femur. The following month, he again fell from a couch, sustaining a new fracture of the right femur. In addition to the fracture, his x-ray showed thin,(More)
