Big brains do not explain why only humans use sophisticated language, according to researchers who have discovered that even a species of pond life communicates by similar methods. Dr Thom Scott-Phillips of Durham University's Department of Anthropology, led research into Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a type of bacteria common in water and soil, which showed that they communicated in a way that was previously thought to be unique to humans and perhaps some other primates. The bacteria used...

UVA researchers discover key step in production of slimy biofilms. Charlottesville, VA (PRWEB) April 23, 2014 To build biofilms -- the slimy plaques bacteria create to better cling to surfaces, cause disease and resist antibiotics -- they must first release a built-in brake. Researchers at the University of Virginia School of Medicine have discovered how the breaking of a molecular interaction plays a vital role in the creation of biofilms, a finding that could allow scientists to devise...

Expert says reducing lactose malabsorption by adding lactase to milk may reduce the amount of gas in the infant gut, thereby resulting in a reduction of colic symptoms CHICAGO, April 23, 2014­­ /PRNewswire/ -- Colic affects about one in five infants in the United States annually and accounts for numerous pediatric visits during the first several months after birth. Research into probiotic use for reduction of colic symptoms was showing promise, however, the April 1, 2014 issue of...

Computer model of pathogens paves way for new treatments. Charlottesville, VA (PRWEB) April 22, 2014 The two species of bacteria are genetically similar – both contagious, both drug resistant, both preying upon people with cystic fibrosis or weakened immune systems – yet they go about their sinister work very differently. There is much to be learned both from how they are alike and how they differ, and so researchers at the University of Virginia School of Medicine have recreated them...

Yeast-Based Florastor Balances Beneficial Flora - Top Five Tips San Bruno, CA (PRWEB) April 15, 2014 A lot of factors go into a good run — the weather, proper attire, and personal safety, just to name to few. One of the last things runners want to worry about is their gut. In fact, 81 percent of distance runners experience some type of intestinal disturbance while exercising.1 They want to feel "nothing" — no intestinal upset — exactly the idea behind yeast-based,...

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online From professional chef to housewife, every cook knows that handling raw poultry leaves your hands, tools and surfaces covered in drug-resistant bacteria such as E. coli. These bacteria produce extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs), which are enzymes that make the bacteria resistant to many commonly used antibiotics. A new study from the University Hospital in Basel, Switzerland, examined household and hospital kitchens to...

Resistance to an entire class of antibiotics – aminoglycosides -- has the potential to spread to many types of bacteria, according to new biochemistry research. A mobile gene called NpmA was discovered in E. coli bacteria isolated from a Japanese patient several years ago. Global spread of NpmA and related antibiotic resistance enzymes could disable an entire class of tools doctors use to fight serious or life-threatening infections. Using X-ray crystallography, researchers at Emory...

Staphylococcus epidermidis is one of thirty-three known species belonging to the genus Staphylococcus. It is part of our skin flora and can also be found in the mucous membranes and in animals. It is the most common species found in laboratory test due to contamination. It is not usually pathogenic; however, patients with a compromised immune system often risk infection. Infections can be both nosocomial and community acquired and are more of a threat to hospital patients. Hospitals carry...

Staphylococcus aureus is a facultative anaerobic gram-positive coccus, and is the most common cause of staph infections. It is commonly part of the skin flora found in the nose and on skin. Around 20% of the human population is long-term carriers. It gets its golden color due to its carotenoid pigment staphyloxanthin. The pigment acts as a virulence factor with an antioxidant action that allows the microbe to evade death by reactive oxygen species used by the host immune system. Staphylococci...

Salmonella enterica is a subspecies of Salmonella enterica, the rod shaped, flagellated, aerobic, Gram-negative bacterium. It is a member of the genus Salmonella and many of the pathogenic serovars of the S. enterica species are in this subspecies. Serovars can be designated fully or in a shortened form. The genus, Salmonella, is on the short form lists which are followed by the capitalized and non-italicized serovar. Each serovar can have many strains as well, which allows for a rapid...

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a common bacterium that can cause disease in animals and humans. It can be found in soil, water, skin flora, and most man-made environments throughout the world. It thrives in normal or hypoxic atmospheres; due to this it has colonized many natural and artificial environments. It can infect animals with damaged tissue or people with reduced immunity. Symptoms are generalized inflammation and sepsis. It can be fatal if colonization occurs in critical body organs,...

Lactobacillus casei is a species of genus Lactobacillus found in the human intestine and mouth. Since it produces lactic acid it helps with the propagation of desirable bacteria. This species is documented to have a wide pH and temperature range. It also improves digestion and reduces lactose intolerance and constipation. Most often L. casei is industrial, specifically for diary production. L. Casei is the dominant species of non-starter lactic acid bacteria present in ripening Cheddar...
