Antimicrobial Activity.
TLDR
A method using scanning electron microscope to study the morphology of the bacterial and fungal microbes and thus determining antimicrobial activity is presented in the chapter.
An evaluation of the effects of α-tocopherol and ascorbic acid in bovine respiratory disease complex occurring in feedlot calves after transport
TLDR
Evaluating the effects of vitamins E and C on the development of the inflammation process and on selected defence mechanisms against infections induced by M. haemolytica found no differences in the percentage of cells sensitive to Lkt between the group given vitamin E and the calves which received vitamin C.
16S-ARDRA and MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry as tools for identification of Lactobacillus bacteria isolated from poultry
TLDR
The MALDI-TOF MS and 16S-ARDRA assays are valuable tools for the identification of avian lactobacilli to the species level and can be used for discrimination of Lactobacillus bacteria from different habitats.
Characterization of heat-shock proteins in Escherichia coli strains under thermal stress in vitro.
TLDR
The presence of very strong protective adaptation in the bacteria in unfavourable conditions, which is critical for the organism infected by them, is indicated by the localization of Hsps in cell fractions.
Conglutinin, CL-43 and CL-46--three bovine collectins.
TLDR
Northern blot or immunocytochemical analysis confirm biosynthesis of bovine collectins mainly in the liver (conglutinin, CL-43) and in the thymus (CL-46) and show antiviral activities towards influenza A virus and rotaviruses and protective activity against bacterial infections.
Identification and antibiotic susceptibility of lactobacilli isolated from turkeys
TLDR
The high rate of antibiotic resistance observed in this study indicates the need to implement the principles of rational use of antibiotics in poultry and may be useful for committees providing guidance on antibiotic susceptibility of microorganisms in order to revise and supplement current microbiological cut-offs values within the genus Lactobacillus.
Antibiotic Susceptibility and Virulence Factors in Escherichia coli from Sympatric Wildlife of the Apuan Alps Regional Park (Tuscany, Italy).
TLDR
The results show that wildlife from nonanthropized environments can be a reservoir for antibiotic-resistant microorganisms and suggest the need for a deeper knowledge on their origin and diffusion mechanisms through different ecological niches.
Awake fibreoptic intubation.
TLDR
The described method is safe and effective, and can be recommended for cases where there is serious doubt about the possibility of maintaining an open airway during induction of anaesthesia, or in cases where intubation has failed during previous anaesthesia.
Assessment of antibiotic susceptibility in Lactobacillus isolates from chickens
TLDR
The findings indicate that intestinal lactobacilli should be considered a reservoir of resistance genes and that antibiotics must be used prudently in poultry production.
Identification of Lactobacillus strains of goose origin using MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry and 16S-23S rDNA intergenic spacer PCR analysis.
TLDR
The results obtained indicate that ITS- PCR and ITS-PCR/RFLP assays could be used not only for interspecific, but also for intraspecific, typing.
