The soilborne fungus Rhizoctonia solani anastomosis group (AG) 8 is a major pathogen of grain crops resulting in substantial production losses. In the absence of resistant cultivars of wheat or barley, a sustainable and enduring method for disease control may lie in the enhancement of biological disease suppression. Evidence of effective biological control of R. solani AG8 through disease suppression has been well documented at our study site in Avon, South Australia. A comparative metatranscriptomic approach was applied to assess the taxonomic and functional characteristics of the rhizosphere microbiome of wheat plants grown in adjacent fields which are suppressive and non-suppressive to the plant pathogen R...

Interactions in the airway ecology of cystic fibrosis may alter organism persistence and clinical outcomes. Better understanding of such interactions could guide clinical decisions. We fitted logistic regression models using generalized estimating equations to longitudinal two-year patient cohorts in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Patient Registry, 2003-2011 to study associations between airway organisms present in each calendar year and their presence in the subsequent year. Models were adjusted for clinical characteristics and multiple observations per patient and tested for sensitivity to cystic fibrosis-specific treatments...

OBJECTIVE: Water in oil emulsions increase oil processing costs and cause damage to refinery equipment which necessitates demulsification. Since chemical demulsifiers cause environmental pollution, biodemulsifiers have been paid more attention. This study aims to identify biodemulsifier-producing bacteria from petroleum contaminated environments. RESULTS: As a result, several biodemulsifier producing strains were found that Stenotrophomonas sp. strain HS7 (accession number: MF445088) which produced a cell associated biodemulsifier showed the highest demulsifying ratio, 98...

The massive accumulation of genome-sequences in public databases promoted the proliferation of genome-level phylogenetic analyses in many areas of biological research. However, due to diverse evolutionary and genetic processes, many loci have undesirable properties for phylogenetic reconstruction. These, if undetected, can result in erroneous or biased estimates, particularly when estimating species trees from concatenated datasets. To deal with these problems, we developed GET_PHYLOMARKERS, a pipeline designed to identify high-quality markers to estimate robust genome phylogenies from the orthologous clusters, or the pan-genome matrix (PGM), computed by GET_HOMOLOGUES...

The microbial communities in air- and vacuum-packed crisp grass carp ( Ctenopharyngodon idella C. et V.) fillets have not been characterized during chilled storage. High-throughput sequencing of bacterial 16S rRNA has now revealed that the bacterial community in fresh fillets is diverse and distinct from that in spoiled samples. The predominant phylum was Proteobacteria, and 66 genera were identified. In fresh fillets, the most abundant genera were Acinetobacter (53.3%), Wautersiella (6.3%), unclassified Alcaligenaceae (4...

The linkage of protease-chaperon system, SmeYZ pump, and aminoglycoside resistance was assessed in Stenotrophomonas maltophilia The clpA , clpS , clpP , and htpX genes were upregulated in response to kanamycin exposure. Of them, clpA and htpX were the primary determinants responsible for intrinsic AG resistance. Inactivation of clpA and htpX compromised protease-mediated intrinsic aminoglycoside resistances and weakened SmeYZ pump-mediated aminoglycoside resistance, signifying HtpX and ClpA as potential AG adjuvant targets for treatment of S...

Stenotrophomonas maltophilia is a non-fermenting Gram-negative bacterium that is ubiquitous in the environment. In humans, this opportunistic multi-drug-resistant pathogen is responsible for a plethora of healthcare-associated infections. Here, we utilized a whole genome sequencing (WGS)-based phylogenomic core single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) approach to characterize S. maltophilia subgroups, their potential association with human infection, and to detect any possible transmission events. In total, 89 isolates (67 clinical and 22 environmental) from Germany were sequenced...

The role of bacteria in chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is still not well understood. Whole microbiome analysis adds new aspects to our current understanding that is mainly based on isolated bacteria. It is still unclear how the results of microbiome analysis and the classical culture based approaches interrelate. To address this, middle meatus swabs and tissue samples were obtained during sinus surgery in 5 patients with CRS with nasal polyps (CRSwNP), 5 patients with diffuse CRS without nasal polyps (CRSsNP), 5 patients with unilateral purulent maxillary CRS (upm CRS) and 3 patients with healthy sinus mucosa...

Stenotrophomonas maltophilia is a gram-negative rod rarely associated with osteomyelitis. To date, only 3 cases of osteomyelitis due to this pathogen have been previously referenced. We describe the case of a 77-year-old male who developed osteomyelitis secondary to S. maltophilia infection after an open distal tibial fracture sustained by falling off a ladder. The purpose of the present case report was to highlight this highly resistant microbe as an infectious etiology.

Stenotrophomonas maltophilia is an opportunistic Gram-negative pathogen with increasing incidence in clinical settings. The most critical aspect of S. maltophilia is its frequent resistance to a majority of the antibiotics of clinical use. Quorum Sensing (QS) systems coordinate bacterial populations and act as major regulatory mechanisms of pathogenesis in both pure cultures and poly-microbial communities. Disruption of QS systems, a phenomenon known as Quorum Quenching (QQ), represents a new promising paradigm for the design of novel antimicrobial strategies...

The field of bio-inert materials is relatively mature as unique molecular designs for antifouling have been regularly presented over the past 30 years. However, the effect of steam sterilization, a common procedure in hospitals for sterilizing biomedical devices in clinical uses, on the stability of antifouling and hemocompatible biomaterials remains unexplored. The only available set of data indicates that poly(sulfobetaine methacrylate) (SBMA) is unstable and loses its antifouling properties when exposed to hot humid air, depriving it of its attractiveness...

Stenotrophomonas maltophilia is a multi-drug resistant opportunistic pathogen that causes nosocomial infections in immunocompromised patients. This pathogen is difficult to treat owing to its intrinsic multidrug resistance and ability to form antimicrobial-tolerant biofilms. In the present study, we aimed to assess the potential use of celastrol as a novel anti-biofilm and/or anti-virulence agent against S. maltophilia . Results showed that celastrol at its sub-inhibitory doses decreased biofilm formation and disrupt the established biofilms produced by S...
