Phenotypic Adaptation to Antiseptics and Effects on Biofilm Formation Capacity and Antibiotic Resistance in Clinical Isolates of Early Colonizers in Dental Plaque
- Biology, MedicineAntibiotics
Clinical isolates of early colonizers of dental plaque can phenotypically adapt toward antiseptics such as CHX upon repeated exposure, and the underlying mechanisms at genomic and transcriptomic levels need to be investigated in future studies.

Chlorine disinfection promotes the exchange of antibiotic resistance genes across bacterial genera by natural transformation
- BiologyThe ISME Journal
It is demonstrated that the chlorination process promoted the horizontal transfer of plasmids by natural transformation, which resulted in the exchange of ARGs across bacterial genera and the emergence of new ARB, as well as the transfer of chlorine-injured opportunistic pathogen from non-ARB to ARB.
Global Survey of Antibiotic Resistance Genes in Air.
- Environmental ScienceEnvironmental science & technology
It is revealed that urban air is being polluted by ARGs, and different cities are challenged with varying health risks associated with airborne ARG exposure, and gene network analysis indicates that airborne ARGs were differentially contributed by bacterial taxa.
Water Disinfection Byproducts Induce Antibiotic Resistance-Role of Environmental Pollutants in Resistance Phenomena.
- BiologyEnvironmental science & technology
Two common water disinfection byproducts (chlorite and iodoacetic acid) had antibiotic-like effects that led to the evolution of resistant E. coli strains under both high (near MICs) and low (sub-MIC) exposure concentrations.
