Apathogenic, intestinal, segmented, filamentous bacteria stimulate the mucosal immune system of mice.
Segmented filamentous bacteria (SFBs) are apathogenic autochthonous bacteria in the murine small intestine that preferentially attach to Peyer's patch epithelium. SFBs have never been cultured inExpand
Comparative analysis of antibiotic resistance, immunofluorescent colony staining, and a transgenic marker (bioluminescence) for monitoring the environmental fate of rhizobacterium.
Field releases of the wild-type plant growth-promoting rhizobacterium Pseudomonas fluorescens 89B-27, its bioluminescent derivative GEM-8 (89B-27::Tn4431), and a spontaneous rifampin-resistantExpand
Intestinal, segmented, filamentous bacteria in a wide range of vertebrate species
Segmented, filamentous bacteria (SFBs) form a group of bacteria with similar morphology and are identified on the basis of their morphology only. The relationships of these organisms are unclear asExpand
Bactericidal concentrations of chlorhexidine-digluconate, amine fluoride gel and stannous fluoride gel for subgingival bacteria tested in serum at short contact times.
In vitro inhibitory and bactericidal concentrations in serum of chlorhexidine-digluconate, amine fluoride gel, stannous fluoride gel, stannous fluoride, metronidazole and amoxicillin were determinedExpand
Influence of a natural-ingredient diet containing Phaseolus vulgaris on the colonization by segmented, filamentous bacteria of the small bowel of mice.
The appearance of segmented, filamentous bacteria (SFBs) in the small bowel of mice is influenced by the composition of the diet, but the dietary components responsible are not known. The addition ofExpand
The influence of stress and cheese-whey on intestinal parameters in mice.
In a mouse model the effects of environmental stress on gastrointestinal parameters and the effects of cheese-whey on the changes induced by stress were studied. Mice were subjected to overcrowding,Expand
Isolation of Streptobacillus moniliformis from the middle ear of rats
Streptobacillus moniliformis was isolated from the middle ear of 9 of 16 rats used for otological studies. Examination of rat sera for the presence of anti-Streptobacillus moniliformis antibodiesExpand
Availability of solid feed and growth rates of pre-weaned mice of different litter size.
The effects of litter size and availability of solid feed before weaning on the growth mice were studied. Pups of small litters (n = 3) grew significantly faster than mice of large litters (n = 10),Expand
Different degree of ileal colonization by segmented, filamentous bacteria in two strains of mice.
Segmented, filamentous bacteria (SFBs) are autochthonous, apathogenic inhabitants of the ileum of various animal species. Outbred Swiss (Cpb:SE) mice have significantly higher degrees of SFBExpand
