Antimicrobial and antioxidative activity of extracts and essential oils of Myrtus communis L.
TLDR
In this review, the characteristics of myrtle essential oils and extracts are summarized, with particular attention to their chemical composition, biological activities and potential applications. Expand
Taxonomy of prokaryotic viruses: 2017 update from the ICTV Bacterial and Archaeal Viruses Subcommittee
TLDR
Highlights include the creation of a new order, 10 families, 22 subfamilies, 424 genera and 964 species in the ICTV's Bacterial and Archaeal Viruses Subcommittee for the years 2018 and 2019. Expand
A colorimetric microtiter plate method for assessment of phage effect on Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilm.
TLDR
The aim of the study was to develop a method for selection of the most effective Pseudomonas aeruginosa phages for inhibition of biofilm formation and its eradication using the microtiter plate method. Expand
Phage-antibiotic synergism: a possible approach to combatting Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
TLDR
The time-kill curve method showed that a combination of bacteriophages and subinhibitory concentrations of ceftriaxone generally reduced bacterial growth, and synergism was proven for a Siphoviridae phage σ-1 after 300 min of incubation. Expand
Antimicrobial activity of Eucalyptus camaldulensis essential oils and their interactions with conventional antimicrobial agents against multi-drug resistant Acinetobacter baumannii.
TLDR
The proven E. camaldulensis essential oil synergistic interactions with conventional antibiotics could lead to the development of new treatment strategies of infections caused by MDR A. baumannii strains in the term of antibiotic dose reduction. Expand
Sensitivity of bacterial vs. acute Daphnia magna toxicity tests to metals
TLDR
Evaluating the sensitivity of two bacterial tests commonly used in metal toxicity screening in comparison to the standard acute Daphnia magna test found manganese to be slightly toxic to D. magna and non-toxic to the two selected bacteria. Expand
Taxonomy of prokaryotic viruses: 2018-2019 update from the ICTV Bacterial and Archaeal Viruses Subcommittee
TLDR
Highlights include the creation of a new order, 10 families, 22 subfamilies, 424 genera and 964 species in the ICTV’s Bacterial and Archaeal Viruses Subcommittee for the years 2018 and 2019. Expand
Analysis of Spounaviruses as a Case Study for the Overdue Reclassification of Tailed Phages
TLDR
This study used a wide range of complementary methods—including comparative genomics, core genome analysis, and marker gene phylogenetics—to show that the group of Bacillus phage SPO1-related viruses previously classified into the Spounavirinae subfamily, is clearly distinct from other members of the family Myoviridae and its diversity deserves the rank of an autonomous family. Expand
Prevalence of Pf1-like (pro)phage genetic elements among Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates.
TLDR
Infectivity experiments confirmed that strains yielding PCR products with either universal or Pf4 specific primers can release infective virions in P. aeruginosa virulence. Expand
Isolation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa Specific Phages with Broad Activity Spectra
TLDR
Digested DNA of the phages δ and I showed similar patterns, indicating the prevalence and success of this phage type in the environment, and the broad activity spectra isolates, except for 001A, possessed morphological characteristics of family Podoviridae. Expand
