Transfer of Pseudomonas pictorum Gray and Thornton 1928 to genus Stenotrophomonas as Stenotrophomonas pictorum comb. nov., and emended description of the genus Stenotrophomonas.

Int J Syst Evol Microbiol 2017 Jun 20;67(6):1894-1900. Epub 2017 Jun 20.

Aix Marseille Univ, Univ Avignon, CNRS, IRD, IMBE, Marseille, France.

A polyphasic taxonomic approach including analysis of phenotypic, physiological and genotypic characteristics, 16S rRNA gene sequence and DNA-DNA hybridization analysis was used to determine the most consistent affiliation of Pseudomonas pictorum. Pseudomonas pictorum ATCC 23328T exhibited phenotypic traits of members of the genus Stenotrophomonas including cellular fatty acid composition, quinone and limited range of substrates that could be used. Antibiotic susceptibility and physiological characteristics were determined. Read More

Plasmid-mediated quinolone resistance determinants among Gram-negative bacteraemia isolates: a hidden threat.

J Med Microbiol 2017 Mar 20;66(3):266-275. Epub 2017 Mar 20.

4th Department of Internal Medicine, Infectious Diseases Laboratory, Molecular Biology Section, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, School of Medicine, Athens, Greece.

Purpose: The aim of the study was to investigate the prevalence of plasmid-mediated quinolone resistance (PMQR) genes in an unselected collection of bloodstream isolates recovered over an 18-month period in a laboratory affiliated to a university hospital in Athens, Greece, and to assess their impact on the in vitro activity of ciprofloxacin and levofloxacin.

Methods: Eight PMQR genes were screened by PCR and sequencing. All PMQR-positive isolates were submitted to isoelectric focusing for β-lactamase detection, conjugation or transformation, time-kill assays, mutant prevention concentrationand inoculum effect evaluation. Read More

The response of maize (Zea mays L.) plant assisted with bacterial consortium and fertilizer under oily sludge.

Int J Phytoremediation 2016 ;18(5):521-6

a Quaid-i-Azam University , Islamabad , Pakistan.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the role of PGPR consortium and fertilizer alone and in combination on the physiology of maize grown under oily sludge stress environment as well on the soil nutrient status. Consortium was prepared from Bacillus cereus (Acc KR232400), Bacillus altitudinis (Acc KF859970), Comamonas (Delftia) belonging to family Comamonadacea (Acc KF859971) and Stenotrophomonasmaltophilia (Acc KF859973). The experiment was conducted in pots with complete randomized design with four replicates and kept in field. Read More

Comparison of two DNA microarrays for detection of plasmid-mediated antimicrobial resistance and virulence factor genes in clinical isolates of Enterobacteriaceae and non-Enterobacteriaceae.

Int J Antimicrob Agents 2010 Jun 30;35(6):593-8. Epub 2010 Mar 30.

Department of Clinical Microbiology, Sir Patrick Dun Translational Research Laboratory, School of Medicine, University of Dublin, Trinity College, St James's Hospital Campus, Dublin 8, Ireland.

A DNA microarray was developed to detect plasmid-mediated antimicrobial resistance (AR) and virulence factor (VF) genes in clinical isolates of Enterobacteriaceae and non-Enterobacteriaceae. The array was validated with the following bacterial species: Escherichiacoli (n=17); Klebsiellapneumoniae (n=3); Enterobacter spp. (n=6); Acinetobacter genospecies 3 (n=1); Acinetobacterbaumannii (n=1); Pseudomonasaeruginosa (n=2); and Stenotrophomonasmaltophilia (n=2).

Quadruplex real-time quantitative PCR assay for the detection of pathogens related to late-onset ventilator-associated pneumonia: a preliminary report.

J Microbiol Methods 2010 Jun 28;81(3):232-4. Epub 2010 Mar 28.

Departamento de Microbiología, Facultad de Medicina, Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León, Mexico.

A quadruplex real-time (RT) qPCR assay for the detection and quantification in 4h of Staphylococcusaureus, Pseudomonasaeruginosa, Acinetobacterbaumannii and Stenotrophomonasmaltophilia directly from bronchoalveolar lavage specimens was developed. The specificity of the assay was 100% for all four species. Read More
