Carbapenem resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (CRKP) are isolated with increasing frequency, especially from immunocompromized patients. The capsular polysaccharide (CPS) types of CPKP were not determined. Investigation of two CRKP isolates from a 2011 outbreak at the Clinical Center, the National Institutes of Health, identified a new capsular type shared by(More)
BACKGROUND The effect of high glucose concentration on the transcription levels of the small RNA SgrS and the messenger RNA ptsG, (encoding the glucose transporter IICBGlc), was studied in both E. coli K-12 (MG1655 and JM109) and E. coli B (BL21). It is known that the transcription level of sgrS increases when E. coli K-12 (MG1655 and JM109) is exposed to(More)
The heterogeneous course, severity, and treatment responses among patients with atopic dermatitis (AD; eczema) highlight the complexity of this multifactorial disease. Prior studies have used traditional typing methods on cultivated isolates or sequenced a bacterial marker gene to study the skin microbial communities of AD patients. Shotgun metagenomic(More)
