selective enrichment of shigella in the presence of escherichia coli by use of 4-chloro-2-cyclopentylphenyl beta-d-galactopyranoside.a procedure involving the use of citrate-buffered lactose broth (ph 6.5) containing an analogue of a beta-galactoside (4-chloro-2-cyclopentylphenyl beta-d-galactopyranoside) has been developed for the enrichment of shigella in competition with a 100-fold higher population of escherichia coli. the system makes use of the beta-galactosidase activity of e. coli which hydrolyzes the phenolic derivative of beta-galactoside to galactose and an aglycone moiety (4-chloro-2-cyclopentylphenol) which is to ...19766138
kinetic properties of serratia marcescens adenosine 5'-diphosphate glucose pyrophosphorylase.the regulatory properties of partially purified adenosine 5'-diphosphate-(adp) glucose pyrophosphorylase from two serratia marcescens strains (atcc 274 and atcc 15365) have been studied. slight or negligible activation by fructose-p2, pyridoxal-phosphate, or reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (nadph) was observed. these compounds were previously shown to be potent activators of the adpglucose pyrophosphorylases from the enterics, salmonella typhimurium, enterobacter aerogenes, e ...19766432
somatic antigens of shigella. structural investigation on the o-specific polysaccharide chain of shigella dysenteriae type 1 lipopolysaccharide.the o-specific polysaccharide obtained from the lipopolysaccharide of shigella dysenteriae type 1 (shigella shiga) by mild acid hydrolysis followed by fractionation on sephadex g-50 was found to be identical to that desribed by morgan's group and was composed of l-rhamnose, d-galactose and n-acetyl-d-glycosamine in a ratio 2:1:1. on the basis of methylation analysis data the polysaccharide was proved to be a linear chain of monosaccharide residues in pyranose forms substituted at position 3, exc ...19768314
diagnosis and treatment: drugs five years later. amoxicillin.amoxicillin is an aminopenicillin available in the united states only for oral use. it has an antibacterial activity and spectrum similar to that of ampicillin and is destroyed by gram-positive and gram-negative beta-lactamases. it is more active against enterococci and salmonellae than ampicillin, but less active against shigella. it is better absorbed than ampicillin from the gastrointestinal tract with blood levels two to two and one half times those of ampicillin. amoxicillin is an excellent ...197934342
importance of colicinogeny for the course of acute bacillary dysentery.the development of acute bacillary dysentery was followed in 23 patients involved in two outbreaks and in three sporadic, mutually unrelated cases. repeated cultivations performed at 2-day intervals for 10 days yielded 386 identifiable strains of "opportune intestinal flora". escherichia coli colicinogenic activity is one of the significant factors of gastrointestinal tract protection. the period of shigella excretion is significantly reduced (p less than 0.02) if an appropriate colicinogenic e. ...197944941

[an oral enteritis-vaccine composed of twelve heat inactivated enterobacteriaceae. 1. communication: theoretical and epidemiological considerations (author's transl)].the infectious diseases of the human intestinal tract which are caused by bacteria must be distinguished into two groups on account of their different pathogenesis: the cyclic infections (typhoid fever, parathyphoid fever) and the local infections (cholera, dysentery, salmonella enteritis, dyspepsia coli infections). the local infections of the intestine do not cause a systemic but only a local immunity of the intestinal mucosa. it is necessary therefore to induce local immunity as active immuno ...197944783

significance of starter cultures for raw sausage aging in view of food and nutrition hygiene.the authors studied the effects of liquid starter cultures on the survival of pathogenic germs. it was found that the foreign bacteria tested differed in growth limitation which is obviously dependent on acidity and the amount of lactic acid produced by fermentation. since the pathogenic bacteria differ in the ability to survive, it is imperative to observe strict hygienic measures in preparing starter cultures and to use absolutely sterile monocultures for raw sausage ageing.19768718
lactulose therapy in shigella carrier state and acute dysentery.antibiotic-resistant shigella are increasingly prevalent. lactulose, a non-absorbable disaccharide, was investigated as an alternative therapy for shigella infection on the hypothesis that the short-chain fatty acids (inhibitory to shigella) resulting from metabolism of lactulose by normal colonic flora would diminish shigella excretion. a long-term antibiotic-refractory carrier (large bowel) excreting 10(4) to 10(7)shigella sonnei/g of feces was given two courses of lactulose (of 24 and 16 days ...19752098

use of lincomycin, methicillin and ristomycin in the nutrient media for isolating pathogenic intestinal microorganisms.elective-differentiating solid nutrient media for simultaneous isolation of vibrioes, salmonella and shigella were developed. antibiotics active against grampostive microflora and dry bile salts inhibiting the growth of proteus were used as the inhibitors of the growth of the accompanying microflora. the medium was lincomycin and the bile salts may be prepared in a dry form.19752096
