Stenotrophomonas maltophilia AHL-Degrading Strains Isolated from Marine Invertebrate Microbiota Attenuate the Virulence of Pectobacterium carotovorum and Vibrio coralliilyticus.

Mar Biotechnol (NY) 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Microbiology, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Granada, 18071, Granada, Spain.

Many Gram-negative aquacultural and agricultural pathogens control virulence factor expression through a quorum-sensing (QS) mechanism involving the production of N-acylhomoserine (AHL) signalling molecules. Thus, the interruption of QS systems by the enzymatic degradation of signalling molecules, known as quorum quenching (QQ), has been proposed as a novel strategy to combat these infections. Given that the symbiotic bacteria of marine invertebrates are considered to be an important source of new bioactive molecules, this study explores the presence of AHL-degrading bacteria among 827 strains previously isolated from the microbiota of anemones and holothurians.

Inactivation of ahpC renders Stenotrophomonas maltophilia resistant to the disinfectant hydrogen peroxide.

Antonie Van Leeuwenhoek 2018 Nov 22. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Laboratory of Biotechnology, Chulabhorn Research Institute, 54 Kamphaeng Phet 6 Road, Talat Bang Khen, Lak Si, Bangkok, 10210, Thailand.

Inactivation of ahpC, encoding alkyl hydroperoxide reductase, rendered Stenotrophomonas maltophilia more resistant to HO; the phenotype was directly correlated with enhanced total catalase activity, resulting from an increased level of KatA catalase. Plasmid-borne expression of ahpC from pAhpC could complement all of the mutant phenotypes. Mutagenesis of the proposed AhpC peroxidactic and resolving cysteine residues to alanine (C47A and C166A) on the pAhpC plasmid diminished its ability to complement the ahpC mutant phenotypes, suggesting that the mutagenized ahpC was non-functional.

Microbiological and Cellular Evaluation of a Fluorine-Phosphorus-Doped Titanium Alloy, a Novel Antibacterial and Osteostimulatory Biomaterial with Potential Applications in Orthopedic Surgery.

Appl Environ Microbiol 2019 Jan 9;85(2). Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Department of Clinical Microbiology, IIS-Fundación Jiménez Díaz, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Madrid, Spain

Joint prosthesis failure is mainly related to aseptic loosening and prosthetic joint infections, both of which are associated with high morbidity and substantial costs for patients and health systems. The development of a biomaterial that is capable of stimulating bone growth while minimizing bacterial adhesion would reduce the incidence of prosthetic failure. We report antibacterial and osteostimulatory effects in a novel fluorine-phosphorus (F-P)-doped TiO oxide film grown on Ti-6Al-4V alloy with a nanostructure of bottle-shaped nanotubes (bNT) using five bacterial species (, , , , and ) and MCT3T3-E1 osteoblastic cells.
