It can be concluded that MTPY medium is highly selective and permits the growth of both glucose fermenting and glucose non-fermenting bifidobacteria.
Screening of some Siberian medicinal plants for antimicrobial activity.
The antimicrobial activity of crude ethanolic extracts of 16 Siberian medicinal plants was tested against five species of microorganisms: Bacillus cereus, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus,
Susceptibility ofEscherichia coli to C2-C18 fatty acids
It can be concluded that caprylic acid, and to a lesser extent also capric acid, has a significant antimicrobial activity toward E. coli.
In vitro growth-inhibitory effect of plant-derived extracts and compounds against Paenibacillus larvae and their acute oral toxicity to adult honey bees.
This study leads to identification of highly potent natural products effective against AFB in vitro with very low MICs compared to those reported in literature, low toxicity to adult honey bees and commercial availability suggesting them as perspective, low cost and consumer-acceptable agents for control of AFB.
Microflora in the honeybee digestive tract: counts, characteristics and sensitivity to veterinary drugs
Des etudes precedentes sur l'interaction entre les medicaments veterinaires et les microorganismes intestinaux, les bacteries aerobies, comme par exemple B cereus, ont ete utilisees en majorite.
Variation in Honey Bee Gut Microbial Diversity Affected by Ontogenetic Stage, Age and Geographic Location
It is found that bacterial counts do not show only yearly cycles within a colony, but vary on the individual level, and redundancy analysis conducted using denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis identified bacterial species that were characteristic of each developmental stage.
Bifidobacterium bombi sp. nov., from the bumblebee digestive tract.
The results presented support the proposal of a novel species to accommodate strain BluCI/TPT, with the name Bifidobacterium bombi sp.
Modulation of natural immunity in the gut by Escherichia coli strain Nissle 1917.
The properties of EcN that have led to the protection of gnotobiotic pigs against lethal enteric infections are documented and could be important in light of the growing number of acquired deficiencies that paralyze gut immunity in humans.
In vitro Inhibitory Activity of Essential Oil Vapors against Ascosphaera apis
The greatest antifungal action was observed for EO vapors from Armoracia rusticana, followed by Thymus vulgaris, Cymbopogon flexosus, Origanum vulgare and Allium sativum, which revealed that the most active EOs contained allyl isothiocyanate, citral, carvacrol and diallyl sulfides as the main constituents.
