Characterisation of a novel bacteriophage, 0BHG1, and its interactions with its host Rhodopseudomonas blastica Author: Gorham, Hazel Claire ISNI: One-step growth curve studies of 0BHG1 with phage antisera gave a lag period of min, a rise period of min and a final burst size of 25 ± and 30 + for chemohetero-trophically Author: Hazel Claire Gorham. About this book Introduction Bacteriophages: Methods and Protocols pulls together the vast body of knowledge and expertise from top international bacteriophage researchers to provide both classical and state-of-the-art molecular techniques. The rapid increase in the number of worldwide human infections caused by the extremely antibiotic resistant bacterial pathogen Stenotrophomonas maltophilia is cause for concern. An alternative treatment solution in the post-antibiotic era is phage therapy, the use of bacteriophages to selectively kill bacterial pathogens. In this study, the novel bacteriophage AXL3 (vB_SmaS-AXL_3) was isolated Author: Jaclyn G. McCutcheon, Andrea Lin, Jonathan J. Dennis. Application of bacteriophages to eliminate foodborne pathogens in food matrices is an emerging research field. In this study, a promising phage candidate specific for Salmonella strains was screened and its ability to decrease Salmonella counts in some food, such as milk, sausage, and lettuce, was investigated. A total of 58 Salmonella phages were isolated from a wastewater treatment plant.
Written by eminent international researchers actively involved in the disparate areas of bacteriophage research this book focuses on the current rapid developments in this exciting field. The book opens with an excellent chapter that provides a broad overview of the topics and also highlights the multifaceted nature of bacteriophage research. "This book apart from the numerous texts recently published in the area of bacteriophage biology is the focus on the methodology used in this field. This volume focuses largely on the classical protocols - as described by the editors . Bacteriophage research is an extremely dynamic branch of microbiology. This review starts with the discovery of bacteriophages and covers basic phage techniques, ecology and incidence, aspects of phage physiology and replication, host range, classification, morphology, physico-chemical properties, genomics, and selected practical aspects of. Bacteriophage pools were created by mixing the nine bacteriophage stocks and the pools were tested for bactericidal activity in fresh raw oysters by combining a component of oyster extracts that could decrease the V. vulnificus load by 4–5 log units (Pelon et al., ). In addition, bacteriophages CK-2, A-5, and A-7 that infect V.
Characterization of two novel lytic bacteriophages for reducing biofilms of zoonotic multidrug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and controlling their growth in milkRunning title: Biocontrol of MDR. Introduction M13 is a filamentous bacteriophage that infects Escherichia coli (E. coli) strains showing F-pilus. 1 First isolated by P. Hofschneider in , it was subsequently characterised and widely employed in various scientific fields including, for instance, molecular biology and nanotechnology. 2–5 This virus is very well known for the development of the phage display, 6 which allows. Bacteriophages have received attention as biological control agents since their discovery and recently their value as tools has been further emphasized in many different fields of microbiology. Particularly, in drug design and development programs, phage and prophage genomics provide the field with new insights. Bacteriophages reveals information on the organisms ranging from their biology to. Bacteriophage therapy could be a potent alternative to antibiotic therapy for antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The aim of the present study was to isolate and identify a specific bacteriophage against EPEC and characterize bacteriophage in vitro and in vivo. The specific bacteriophage was isolated, and the effect of phage therapy on 48 mice (Balb.
