Sulfurimonas autotrophica gen. nov., sp. nov., a novel sulfur-oxidizing epsilon-proteobacterium isolated from hydrothermal sediments in the Mid-Okinawa Trough.
TLDR
A novel mesophilic, sulfur- and thiosulfate-oxidizing bacterium, strain OK10(T), was isolated from deep-sea sediments at the Hatoma Knoll in the Mid-Okinawa Trough hydrothermal field and represents the sole species of a new genus, Sulfurimonas autotrophica, proposed.
Programmable cells: interfacing natural and engineered gene networks.
TLDR
This work employs a modular design strategy to create Escherichia coli strains where a genetic toggle switch is interfaced with: the SOS signaling pathway responding to DNA damage, and a transgenic quorum sensing signaling pathway from Vibrio fischeri.
Genetic Variation among Staphylococcus aureus Strains from Bovine Milk and Their Relevance to Methicillin-Resistant Isolates from Humans
TLDR
Multilocus sequence typing (MLST) showed strong correlation to the results of pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, coa PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP), spa typing, and the coagulase serotyping method, and strains derived from sequence type 97 and ST705 were suggested as dominant bovine S. aureus lineages in Japan.
Sulfurihydrogenibium subterraneum gen. nov., sp. nov., from a subsurface hot aquifer.
TLDR
A polyphasic taxonomic study was performed on a novel facultatively anaerobic, hydrogen- or sulfur/thiosulfate-oxidizing, thermophilic chemolithoautotroph recently isolated from subsurface hot aquifer water in a Japanese gold mine, indicating that it was closely related to an uncultivated group of micro-organisms within the order Aquificales.
Molecular typing of Staphylococcus aureus isolated from bovine mastitic milk on the basis of toxin genes and coagulase gene polymorphisms.
TLDR
A total of 270 strains of Staphylococcus aureus, isolated from mastitic milk, were investigated by the polymerase chain reaction for the presence of genes encoding enterotoxins and a toxic shock syndrome toxin, supporting the theory that superantigenic toxins are important for the udder pathogenesis.
Clinical Significance of Escherichia albertii
TLDR
Systematic analyses showed that E. albertii represents a substantial portion of strains currently identified as eae-positive Escherichia coli and includes Shiga toxin 2f–producing strains.
Biodiversity in deep-sea sites located near the south part of Japan
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of deep-sea isolates based on 16S rDNA sequences revealed that a wide range of taxa were represented in the deep- Sea environments, including extremophilic bacteria, and growth patterns under high hydrostatic pressure were determined.
Prevalence and characteristics of intimin- and Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli from gulls, pigeons and broilers in Finland.
TLDR
Birds cannot be regarded as important carriers of zoonotic stx or eae E. coli in Finland, as they differed from human pathogenic strains by the lack of EHEC-hlyA and bfp/EAF as well as distribution of O-serogroups.
Salmonella isolates from cloacal swabs and footpads of wild birds in the immediate environment of Tokyo Bay.
TLDR
All 19 isolates from cloacal swabs were serotyped as Salmonella Typhimurium susceptible to all five conventional antimicrobial agents tested, and 15 salmonellae isolated from footpads showed multiple drug resistance.
Deferribacter desulfuricans sp. nov., a novel sulfur-, nitrate- and arsenate-reducing thermophile isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent.
TLDR
A novel anaerobic, heterotrophic thermophile was isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent chimney at the Suiyo Seamount in the Izu-Bonin Arc, Japan and could be clearly differentiated from D. thermophilus BMA(T) on the basis of its physiological and genetic properties.
