Latest Escherichia coli Stories
Border Collies are effective at reducing gull congregation on recreational beaches, resulting in lower E. coli abundance in the sand.
It is well-known that all life on Earth is made up of two base pairs, known as A-T (adenine–thymine) and C-G (cytosine–guanine), which form the standard double helix DNA strand.
Scientists from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have identified a benign bacterium that shows promise in blocking Salmonella from colonizing raw tomatoes. Their research is published ahead of print in the journal Applied and Environmental Microbiology.
LITTLE ROCK, AR, April 22, 2014 /CNW/ - Vivione Biosciences Inc.
Food-poisoning outbreaks linked to disease-causing strains of the bacterium Escherichia coli are normally associated with tainted meat products.
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.
A long-standing challenge in synthetic biology has been to create gene circuits that behave in predictable and robust ways.
Bacteria "plan ahead" by tightening their belts to help them survive looming lean periods, researchers at Cambridge have discovered.
Scientists have for the first time come closer to understanding how a clone of E. coli, described as the most important of its kind to cause human infections, has spread across the world in a very short time.
Q Laboratories, Inc. will conduct independent testing of the RESOLUTION Microbial Genotyping System from PathoGenetix, Inc.
Klebsiella pneumoniae is a Gram-negative, non-motile, encapsulated, lactose fermenting, facultative anaerobic, rod shaped bacterium found in the normal flora of the mouth, skin, and intestines. It is the most important member of the Klebsiella genus of Enterobacteriaceae. It is naturally occurring in soil and about 30% of strains can fix nitrogen in anaerobic conditions. Hans Christian Gram developed the technique now known as Gram staining in 1884 to discriminate between K. pneumoniae and...
Escherichia coli is a Gram-negative rod-shaped bacterium that is commonly found in the lower intestine of warm-blooded organisms. Most strains are harmless; however, some such as O157:H7 can cause food poisoning in humans and are often responsible for product recalls. The normal flora of the gut normally contains the harmless strains and often provide K2 to the body. They are not always confined to the intestine and have the ability to survive briefly outside of the body. It grows easily...
