Antibiotic Resistance and Phynotypic Detection of AmpC Beta-Lactamase Producing Escherichia coli from Urine of Students Attending Fulafia Clinic

Usman S. Okposhi, Kabiru A. Shuaibu, Chuku Aleruchi, Fatima A. Yusuf, Naja’atu S. Hadi
Escherichia coli also known as E. coli are gram-negative facultative anaerobic, rod-shaped, Coliform bacteria, commonly found in the lower intestine of warm-blooded organisms. This study was designed to determine the antibiotic susceptibility and the phenotypic detection of AmpC beta-lactamase producing Escherichia coli from the urine of students attending FuLafia Clinic, Nasarawa State, Nigeria. A total of 22 urine samples were collected from the students. Eleven (50%) E...

Taxonomy and Characterization of Fungi Isolated from Cocoa Beans during Fermentation in Saf’s Agroforestry System in the Amazon

Mateus Cardoso Barros, Jeferson Santana Quadros, Magnun Antonio Penariol da Silva, Raquel Soares Casaes Nunes
Agroforestry systems (SAFs) are an alternative for sustainable development as they enable the recovery of degraded areas and reduce deforestation, contributing to breaking the cycle of traditional family farming, so common in the Amazon region, which enables the recovery of soils, the increase of organic matter and soil fertility. Cocoa beans are grown and fermented in SAFs. According to the research, the significant appearance of endophytic microorganisms such as fungi in the cocoa bean can ben...

Resonant Absorption of Microwaves by Macromolecules

Boris L. Ikhlov
The objective of the study is to detect the resonant absorption of an ultrahigh-frequency electromagnetic field in the centimeter range by DNA molecules at a frequency corresponding to the natural frequency of torsional vibrations of the DNA helix. Instead of DNA solution, cultures of various bacteria containing DNA were used, for whose DNA spirals the resonant frequencies of torsional vibrations were calculated. The cultures were placed in test tubes or cuvette and irradiated by microwave gener...

A Novel Strain of Moderately Thermophilic Streptomyces from the Fenjiu-Flavor Daqu

Lihong Zhang, Baoyan Guo, Huiqing Yang, Caihui Wang
Fenjiu-flavour Daqu is an important starter to support growth of microorganisms in the fermented process of Fenjiu-flavor liquor. A novel thermophilic microorganism, designated strain gby1, was isolated from Fenjiu-flavour Daqu from Shanxi Xinghuacun Fenjiu Distillery Company Limited, Fenyang country, Shanxi province. The morphological, physiological, chemical taxonomic and phylogenetic characteristics of the strain were described in this paper. The isolate gby1 exhibited higher heat resistance....

Chadrack Kabeya Diyoka, Isabelle Kasongo Omba, Ghyslain Ngongo Lambo, Eric Kasamba Ilunga, Prosper Emmanuel Malangu Mposhy, Criss Koba Mjumbe
Introduction: Food contamination with microorganisms can occur at any stage of the process, from food production to consumption, and can be the result of environmental contamination. This study was carried out in order to identify the microorganisms forming the flora and to determine the level of microbial contamination of the internal surfaces of devices in the cold chain of butcher shops. Method: This is a comparative cross-sectional descriptive study of 30 internal surfaces of ten devices in ...

Bacterial Pathogens in Cattle Egret (Bubulcus ibis) and Pied Crow (Corvus albus) in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo

Kisasa K. Robert, Nduaya N. Clarisse, Kafuti Chadrack, Ekumbo Babby, Ngandu Michel, Liesse Jean Marie, Mbundu L. Cyprien
Purpose: Our study focused on Pied Grow and Cattle Egret, two commensal and ubiquitous birds feeding in dumps and frequenting our homes. Our aim was to identify the bacteria that birds bring to our homes and could be a potential risk to Congolese health. Method: We have done bacteriological analyses of bird feces for to explore its gut microbiota composition. The feces were collected in the uricotelic cloaca by using a swab in 52 Cattle Egrets (Bubulcus ibis) and 23 Pied Crows (Corvus albus) cap...

Production of α-Amylase by Bacillus subtilis QM3 and its Enzymatic Properties

Qingping Hu, Jingjing Liu
Alpha-amylase is a starch hydrolyzing enzyme which has many industrial applications. In this study, Bacillus subtilis QM3 has ability to produce α-amylase. Identification was done by iodine test, based on the clear zone around the sample in starch agar plates. Alpha-amylase activity was measured using 3,5-dinitrosalicylic acid (DNS). The result showed B. subtilis QM3 can produce α-amylase and activity of α-amylase was 50.58 IU/mL. The study on enzymatic properties was found: the optimum temperat...

Study on the Adsorption of Heavy Metal by Extracellular Polymeric Substances Extracted from Proteiniphilum acetatigenes PSB-W

Qingping Hu, Xiaoqi Liu
The negatively charged coordination groups on the structure of these biomolecules, which is the main components of extracellular polymeric substances (EPS), have good adsorption efficiency for heavy metals. In this paper, EPS form Proteiniphilum acetatigenes PSB-W which was extracted by EDTA method, and the effects of pH, EPS dosage, adsorption time and initial metal concentration on the adsorption regularity of Cu2 and Pb2 ions on EPS structure were studied respectively, as well as the adsorp...
