High genomic diversity of novel phages infecting the plant pathogen Ralstonia solanacearum, isolated in Mauritius and Reunion islands

High genomic diversity of novel phages infecting the plant pathogen Ralstonia solanacearum, isolated in Mauritius and Reunion islands

Bacterial wilt brought on by the Ralstonia solanacearum species advanced (RSSC) is amongst the most vital plant illnesses worldwide, severely affecting a excessive quantity of crops and decorative vegetation in tropical areas. Only a restricted quantity of phages infecting R. solanacearum have been isolated over the years, regardless of the significance of this bacterium and …

Synergistic Killing and Re-Sensitization of Pseudomonas aeruginosa to Antibiotics by Phage-Antibiotic Combination Treatment

Synergistic Killing and Re-Sensitization of Pseudomonas aeruginosa to Antibiotics by Phage-Antibiotic Combination Treatment

Multidrug-resistant (MDR) Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections pose a severe well being menace. Bacteriophage-antibiotic mixture remedy is a promising candidate for combating these infections. A 5-phage P. aeruginosa cocktail, PAM2H, was examined together with antibiotics (ceftazidime, ciprofloxacin, gentamicin, meropenem) to decide if PAM2H enhances antibiotic exercise. Combination remedy in vitro resulted in a big improve in susceptibility of MDR strains to …

Improving the Inhibitory Effect of Phages against Pseudomonas aeruginosa Isolated from a Burn Patient Using a Combination of Phages and Antibiotics

Improving the Inhibitory Effect of Phages against Pseudomonas aeruginosa Isolated from a Burn Patient Using a Combination of Phages and Antibiotics

Antibiotic resistance causes around 700,000 deaths a year worldwide. Without immediate action, we are fast approaching a post-antibiotic era in which common infections can result in death. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is the leading cause of nosocomial infection and is also one of the three bacterial pathogens in the WHO list of priority bacteria for developing new antibiotics against. …

BlueFeather, the singleton that wasn't: Shared gene content analysis supports expansion of Arthrobacter phage Cluster FE

BlueFeather, the singleton that wasn’t: Shared gene content analysis supports expansion of Arthrobacter phage Cluster FE

Bacteriophages (phages) exhibit excessive genetic variety, and the mosaic nature of the shared genetic pool makes quantifying phage relatedness a shifting goal. Early parameters for clustering of associated Mycobacteria and Arthrobacter phage genomes relied on nucleotide identification thresholds however, extra just lately, clustering of Gordonia and Microbacterium phages has been carried out in line with …

The role of pseudolysogeny in bacteriophage-host interactions in a natural freshwater environment

The role of pseudolysogeny in bacteriophage-host interactions in a natural freshwater environment

Bacteriophages happen in excessive numbers in environmental ecosystems and are thus vital mediators of microbial survival and actions. However, interactions between microbial populations and phages in situ have been largely ignored. Current understanding of the method depends on research carried out with well-fed, laboratory-grown host micro organism. The objective of the experiments reported right here was to …
