Department of Biological Sciences, Binghamton Biofilm Research Center, Binghamton University, Binghamton, NY, 13902, USA.

The formation of biofilms is a developmental process initiated by planktonic cells transitioning to the surface, which comes full circle when cells disperse from the biofilm and transition to the planktonic mode of growth. Considering that pyruvate has been previously demonstrated to be required for the formation of P. aeruginosa biofilms, we asked whether pyruvate likewise contributes to the maintenance of the biofilm structure, with depletion of pyruvate resulting in dispersion.

Determination of Qnr allele frequencies in Fluoroquinolone resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated from burn wounds.

J Pak Med Assoc 2019 Feb;69(2):250-252

Institute of Pure and Applied Biology, Microbiology Division.

Effective treatment of burn wound infections is precluded by high prevalence of nosocomial infections coupled with high resistance rates against commonly used antimicrobials. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an important nosocomial pathogen in burn infections due to high morbidity and mortality associated with it. We analyzed fluoroquinolone resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa for the presence of Qnr gene, owing to high genetic mobility of this plasmid-borne gene. Read More
