The development of a sensitive and accurate analytical method for monitoring aminoglycosides in food, environmental, and clinical samples is needed for many purposes. This study found that the responses of sodiated and protonated aminoglycosides in hydrophilic interaction chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry were enhanced upon addition of sodium acetate in methanol (5 mg L(-1) at a flow rate of 0.2 mL min(-1)) as a post-column reagent. The sensitivities of sodiated spectinomycin, kanamycin, gentamicins, neomycin, and amikacin were significantly higher than those of the protonated molecules...

Herein, we have reported the development of a simple, rapid, and low cost colorimetric method for the detection of antibiotic based on target-activated split peroxidase DNAzyme coupled with dual nicking enzyme signal amplification (NESA). To lower background signal in G-quadruplex DNAzyme-based detection, the two split G-rich parts are caged into two different hairpin probes, respectively, preventing the two parts from assembling into the G-quadruplex structure. By the combination of restriction endonuclease-assisted cleavage reaction with the spilt G-quadruplex probes, target-modulated release of the two split G-rich parts is achieved, affording high specificity of antibiotic detection...

We assessed the antibiotic resistance and genetic diversity of 27 Enterococcus faecalis isolates from 25 wild bird species in Poland. Resistance to lincomycin (100%) was most common followed by tetracycline (48%), erythromycin (44%), and ciprofloxacin (22%). High-level resistance to streptomycin and kanamycin was observed in 19 and 15% of isolates, respectively. One isolate (4%) exhibited low-level resistance to penicillin and vancomycin, and all isolates were susceptible to gentamicin and chloramphenicol. Antibiotic resistance was linked to the tet(M), tet(L), erm(A), erm(B), msr(A/B), ant(6)-Ia, and aph(3')-IIIa genes...

In Streptomyces, the onset of antibiotic production and sporulation is coordinated through small diffusible molecules known as γ-butyrolactones (GBLs). These are active in very low amounts, and their extraction and characterization are challenging. Here we describe a rapid, small-scale method for the extraction of GBL from Streptomyces coelicolor, from both solid and liquid cultures, which provides sufficient material for subsequent bioassays and partial characterization. We also present two different bioassay techniques for the detection and quantification of the GBL content in the extracts: the antibiotic bioassay and the kanamycin bioassay...

Previous studies have reported that modification of histones alters aminoglycoside-induced hair cell death and hearing loss. In this study, we investigated three FDA-approved histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors (vorinostat/SAHA, belinostat, and panobinostat) as protectants against aminoglycoside-induced ototoxicity in murine cochlear explants and in vivo in both guinea pigs and CBA/J mice. Individually, all three HDAC inhibitors reduced gentamicin (GM)-induced hair cell loss in a dose-dependent fashion in explants...

Nine aph genes, including aph(2″)-Ib, Ic, Ig, If, If1, If3, Ih, aac(6')-Ie/aph(2″)-Ia, and aac(6')-Ie/aph(2″)-If2 were previously identified in Campylobacter. To measure the contribution of these alleles to aminoglycoside resistance, we cloned nine genes into the pBluescript and expressed them in E. coli DH5α. The nine aph expressed in E.coli showed varying levels of resistance to gentamicin, kanamycin and tobramycin. Three genes, aac(6″)-Ie/aph(2″)-Ia, aph2″-If1 and aph2″-Ig showed increased MICs to amikacin and five aph genes were transferrable...

Motile bacteria employ one or more methods for movement, including darting, gliding, sliding, swarming, swimming, and twitching. Multidrug-resistant (MDR) Salmonella carries acquired genes that provide resistance to specific antibiotics, and the goal of our study was to determine how antibiotics influence swimming and swarming in such resistant Salmonella isolates. Differences in motility were examined for six MDR Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium isolates grown on swimming and swarming media containing subinhibitory concentrations of chloramphenicol, kanamycin, streptomycin, or tetracycline...

Several studies have suggested the existence of a close relationship between antibiotic-resistant phenotypes and resistance to other toxic compounds such as heavy metals, which involve co-resistance or cross-resistance mechanisms. A metagenomic library was previously constructed in Escherichia coli with DNA extracted from the bacterial community inhabiting an acid mine drainage (AMD) site highly contaminated with heavy metals. Here, we conducted a search for genes involved in antibiotic resistance using this previously constructed library...
