Houseflies: not simple mechanical vectors of enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli O157:H7.
An epidemic of enterohemorrhagic colitis caused by Escherichia coli O157:H7 (EHEC-O157) occurred in a nursery school in a rural area of Japan in September 1996. The EHEC-O157 were isolated both fromExpand
Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli O157:H7 Present in Radish Sprouts
ABSTRACT Using cultivation, immunofluorescence microscopy, and scanning electron microscopy, we demonstrated the presence of viable enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli O157:H7 not only on the outerExpand
in Vitro Effect of Deoxynivalenol on the Differentiation of Human Colonic Cell Lines Caco-2 and t84
The effects of low concentrations of deoxynivalenol (DON) on structural and functional characteristics of human colonic adenocarcinoma cell lines Caco-2 and T84 were examined. Scanning electronExpand
Quantitative analysis of proliferation and excretion of Bartonella quintana in body lice, Pediculus humanus L.
Although body louse is a well-known vector of trench fever, the growth kinetics of Bartonella quintana in body lice has not been fully understood. We performed a quantitative analysis of bacterialExpand
Antimicrobial Activity of Electrolyzed NaCl Solutions: Effect on the Growth of Streptomyces spp.
An acidic solution (pH 2.5∼2.6) with a high oxidation-reduction potential (ORP; about +1,170 mV) and an alkaline solution (pH 11.5∼11.7) with a low ORP (about −880mV) that resulted from electrolysisExpand
Comparison of the morphology of oocysts and the phylogenetic analysis of four Ascogregarina species (Eugregarinidae: Lecudinidae) as inferred from small subunit ribosomal DNA sequences.
This study on the ultrastructure of the oocysts of four isolated species of Ascogregarina (A. taiwanensis (Lien and Levine) (Eugregarinidae: Lecudinidae) from Aedes albopictus (Skuse), A. culicisExpand
TPU-0031-A and B, new antibiotics of the novobiocin group produced by Streptomyces sp. TP-A0556.
Two novel antibiotics, TPU-0031-A and B, were isolated from the culture broth of an actinomycete strain. The producing strain, TP-A0556, was identified as Streptomyces sp. based on the taxonomicExpand
Production of novel antibiotic, dopsisamine, by a new subspecies of Nocardiopsis mutabilis with multiple antibiotic resistance.
An actinomycete isolate designated as TS-1980 with multiple resistance to aminoglycoside antibiotics was found to produce novel antibiotics. The strain showed taxonomic features identical to the typeExpand
TPU-0037-A, B, C and D, novel lydicamycin congeners with anti-MRSA activity from Streptomyces platensis TP-A0598.
In screening for anti-MRSA antibiotics, novel lydicamycin congeners, TPU-0037-A, B, C and D, were isolated from a culture broth of an actinomycete strain. The producing strain, TP-A0598, was isolatedExpand
Absolute Configuration and Antitumor Activity of Myxochelin A Produced by Nonomuraea pusilla TP-A0861†
In the screening of antitumor compounds from microbial secondary metabolites, myxochelin A was isolated from a culture broth of Nonomuraea pusilla TP-A0861. The absolute configuration was determinedExpand
