Applicability of rep-PCR fingerprinting for identification of Lactobacillus species.
PCR amplification of repetitive bacterial DNA elements fingerprinting using the (GTG)(5) primer ((GTG)(5)-PCR) was proven to be useful for differentiation of a wide range of lactobacilli (i.e. 26Expand

Evaluation of New Broth Media for Microdilution Antibiotic Susceptibility Testing of Lactobacilli, Pediococci, Lactococci, and Bifidobacteria
ABSTRACT Nine pure or mixed broth media were evaluated for their suitabilities to determine MICs in a microdilution test of 19 antibacterial agents for lactic acid bacteria (LAB) of the generaExpand

Dysbiosis of the faecal microbiota in patients with Crohn's disease and their unaffected relatives
Background and aims A general dysbiosis of the intestinal microbiota has been established in patients with Crohn's disease (CD), but a systematic characterisation of this dysbiosis is lacking.Expand

Evaluation of the DNA fingerprinting method AFLP as an new tool in bacterial taxonomy.
We investigated the usefulness of a novel DNA fingerprinting technique, AFLP, which is based on the selective amplification of genomic restriction fragments by PCR, to differentiate bacterial strainsExpand

Identification and antibiotic susceptibility of bacterial isolates from probiotic products.
In the present study, a total of 55 European probiotic products were evaluated with regard to the identity and the antibiotic resistance of the bacterial isolates recovered from these products.Expand

Molecular Characterization of tet(M) Genes in Lactobacillus Isolates from Different Types of Fermented Dry Sausage
ABSTRACT The likelihood that products prepared from raw meat and milk may act as vehicles for antibiotic-resistant bacteria is currently of great concern in food safety issues. In this study, aExpand

High-resolution genotypic analysis of the genus Aeromonas by AFLP fingerprinting.
We investigated the ability of a recently developed genomic fingerprinting technique, named AFLP, to differentiate the 14 currently defined DNA hybridization groups (HGs) in the genus Aeromonas. WeExpand

Microbial ecology of sourdough fermentations: diverse or uniform?
Sourdough is a specific and stressful ecosystem inhabited by yeasts and lactic acid bacteria (LAB), mainly heterofermentative lactobacilli. On the basis of their inocula, three types of sourdoughExpand

Antimicrobial susceptibilities of Lactobacillus, Pediococcus and Lactococcus human isolates and cultures intended for probiotic or nutritional use.
OBJECTIVES To determine MICs of 16 antimicrobials representing all major classes for 473 taxonomically well-characterized isolates of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) encompassing the genera Lactobacillus,Expand

In vitro conjugal transfer of tetracycline resistance from Lactobacillus isolates to other Gram-positive bacteria.
The ability of 14 Lactobacillus strains, isolated from fermented dry sausages, to transfer tetracycline resistance encoded by tet(M) through conjugation was examined using filter mating experiments.Expand
