A simpler and faster way of producing designer bacteria used in biotechnology processes has been developed by University of Adelaide researchers. The researchers have developed a new one-step bacterial genetic engineering process called 'clonetegration', published in the journal ACS Synthetic Biology. Led by Dr Keith Shearwin, in the University's School of Molecular and Biomedical Sciences, the research facilitates faster development of designer bacteria used in therapeutic drug...

Possibly energy-conserving, switch suggests metabolic changes that researchers might exploit to fight systemic illness For the first time, researchers have found a particular kind of molecular switch in the food poisoning bacteria Salmonella Typhimurium under infection-like conditions. This switch, using a process called S-thiolation, appears to be used by the bacteria to respond to changes in the environment during infection and might protect it from harm, researchers report this week...

University of California - Riverside To better understand how bacteria impact the environment a former University of California, Riverside graduate student spent nearly a year building a system that replicates a human colon, septic tank and groundwater and "fed" the colon three times a day during weeklong experiments to simulate human eating. Ian Marcus, who recently earned his Ph.D. from the UC Riverside Bourns College of Engineering, said discussion of the research often left people a...

Rice computational study tracks E. coli cells´ regulatory mechanisms Environment is not the only factor in shaping regulatory patterns – and it might not even be the primary factor, according to a new Rice University study that looks at how cells´ protein networks relate to a bacteria´s genome. The Rice lab of computer scientist Luay Nakhleh reported in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that when environmental factors are eliminated from an...

Research presented at the American Society for Microbiology General Meeting shows that PathoGenetix Genome Sequence Scanning (GSS) technology could be used to reliably differentiate and strain type pathogenic E. coli strains of public health and food safety significance. GSS provided strain level information comparable to PFGE, the current standard for pathogen identification in epidemiological investigation and response. WOBURN, MA (PRWEB) May 21, 2013 PathoGenetix, Inc., a...

Local Swimming Pools A Cesspit Of Human Fecal Matter
2013-05-17 06:12:16

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Just when you thought it was safe to take a dip in your local watering hole this summer, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released a study which found that many swimmers leave behind a little more than a good time in the pool. According to the health agency's data, more than half of the pools they tested contained fecal matter left behind by swimmers. More specifically, the study found that 58 percent...

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...
