Autolytic characterization of selected Enterococcal strains, (previously Streptococcal)
Autolysins are enzymes that cleave specific structural components within the bacterial cell wall. They contribute to numerous cellular activities such as cell growth, cell division, peptidoglycan recycling and turnover. ...
Characterisation of antibiotic resistance in Streptococcus, Enterococcus and Staphylococcus using a bioinformatics approach.
The rate at which bacterial pathogens are becoming resistant to antibiotics is quite alarming, and therefore much attention has been focussed on this area. The mechanism whereby the bacterial cells acquire resistance is ...
The elucidation of the possible mechanism of vancomycin-resistance in selected streptococcal and enterococcal species.
Three Streptococcal strains: S. milleri P213, S. milleri P35 and S. milleri B200 and three enterococcal strains: E. faecalis 123, E. faecalis 126 and E. faecium were used to test for vancomycin resistance. Two strains were ...
Molecular characterization of selected enterococcus strains (previously streptococcus) using genotyping techniques.
The genus Enterococcus comprises of a group of commensal organisms of the human gut which has been associated with cases of endocarditis and urinary tract infections. In the present study, 12 Enterococcus isolates were ...
