Photodynamic inactivation of Klebsiella pneumoniae biofilms and planktonic cells by 5-aminolevulinic acid and 5-aminolevulinic acid methyl ester.

The treatment of Klebsiella pneumoniae, particularly extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing K. pneumoniae, is currently a great challenge. Pho...

Photodynamic inactivation induced by carboxypterin: a novel non-toxic bactericidal strategy against planktonic cells and biofilms of Staphylococcus aureus.
Microbial related contamination is of major concern and can cause substantial economic losses. Photodynamic inactivation (PDI) has emerged as a suitable approach to inhibit microorganism proliferation. In this work, PDI induced by 6-carboxypterin (Ca

Spectroscopic and quantum chemical analysis of Isonicotinic acid methyl ester.
In this present study, an organic compound Isonicotinic acid methyl ester (INAME) was structurally characterized by FTIR, FT-Raman, and NMR and UV spectroscopy. The optimized geometrical parameters and energies of all different and possible conformer

The effectiveness of photodynamic therapy on planktonic cells and biofilms and its role in wound healing.
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is the application of a photoactive dye followed by irradiation that leads to the death of microbial cells in the presence of oxygen. Its use for controlling biofilms has been documented in many areas, particularly oral car

Inactivation kinetics of various chemical disinfectants on Aeromonas hydrophila planktonic cells and biofilms.
The present article focuses on the inactivation kinetics of various disinfectants including ethanol, sodium hypochlorite, hydrogen peroxide, peracetic acid, and benzalkonium chloride against Aeromonas hydrophila biofilms and planktonic cells. Efficac

220D-F2 from Rubus ulmifolius kills Streptococcus pneumoniae planktonic cells and pneumococcal biofilms.
Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumococcus) forms organized biofilms to persist in the human nasopharynx. This persistence allows the pneumococcus to produce severe diseases such as pneumonia, otitis media, bacteremia and meningitis that kill nearly a mi

Photodynamic inactivation of staphylococci with 5-aminolaevulinic Acid or photofrin.
Widespread use of antibiotics for bacterial infections is a reason for antibiotic resistance. Therefore, alternatives like photodynamic therapy (PDT) are studied for bacterial eradication.The viability of Staphylococcus (S.) aureus and S. epidermidis

Fatty acid methyl ester profiles of bat wing surface lipids.
Sebocytes are specialized epithelial cells that rupture to secrete sebaceous lipids (sebum) across the mammalian integument. Sebum protects the integument from UV radiation, and maintains host microbial communities among other functions. Native gland

High Production of 3-Hydroxypropionic Acid in Klebsiella pneumoniae by Systematic Optimization of Glycerol Metabolism.
3-Hydroxypropionic acid (3-HP) is an important platform chemical proposed by the United States Department of Energy. 3-HP can be converted to a series of bulk chemicals. Biological production of 3-HP has made great progress in recent years. However,

Characterization of Siphoviridae phage Z and studying its efficacy against multidrug-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae planktonic cells and biofilm.
Biofilm has many serious consequences for public health and is a major virulence factor contributing to the chronicity of infections. The aim of the current study was to isolate and characterize a bacteriophage that inhibits multidrug-resistant Klebs

Production of a value added compound from the H-acid waste water-Bioflocculants by Klebsiella pneumoniae.
A novel strain (designated as ZCY-7) which could convert H-acid into bioflocculants was isolated from H-acid wastewater sludge. Conditions for bioflocculants production were optimized by response surface methodology (RSM) and determined to be inoculu
