Swarming of Pseudomonas aeruginosa is dependent on cell-to-cell signaling and requires flagella and pili.
We describe swarming in Pseudomonas aeruginosa as a third mode of surface translocation in addition to the previously described swimming and twitching motilities. Swarming in P. aeruginosa is inducedExpand

Characterization of MexT, the regulator of the MexE-MexF-OprN multidrug efflux system of Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
We investigated the regulation of the MexEF-OprN multidrug efflux system of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which is overexpressed in nfxC-type mutants and confers resistance to quinolones, chloramphenicolExpand

Overexpression of the MexEF-OprN multidrug efflux system affects cell-to-cell signaling in Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Intrinsic and acquired antibiotic resistance of the nosocomial pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa is mediated mainly by the expression of several efflux pumps of broad substrate specificity. Here weExpand

Carbapenem Activities against Pseudomonas aeruginosa: Respective Contributions of OprD and Efflux Systems
ABSTRACT While meropenem MICs were strongly influenced by the presence or absence of the MexAB-OprM efflux pump in both OprD-proficient and -deficient strain backgrounds, MICs of imipenem and ofExpand

Role of TNF and IL-1 in infections with Toxoplasma gondii.
Mice lethally infected with the C56 strain of Toxoplasma gondii and treated with purified recombinant murine tumour necrosis factor (TNF, 1 microgram/day/mouse for 8 days), recombinant humanExpand

Expression of host resistance to Salmonella typhi and Salmonella typhimurium: bacterial survival within macrophages of murine and human origin.
Cell-association of various strains of Salmonella typhi and Salmonella typhimurium with different populations of macrophages was studied. Macrophages were infected, exposed to gentamicin, washed, andExpand

Differential selection of multidrug efflux systems by quinolones in Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Resistance mechanisms selected after in vitro exposure to 12 quinolones were analyzed for Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Efflux-type mutants were predominant. Quinolones differed in their ability to selectExpand

Pan-European Survey of Patients' Attitudes to Antibiotics and Antibiotic Use
This study was carried out to determine patient perceptions of respiratory tract infections and attitudes to taking antibiotics, thus helping doctors to have a better understanding of their patientsExpand
