phospholipids of clostridium butyricum. v. effects of growth temperature on fatty acid, alk-1-enyl ether group, and phospholipid composition.many anaerobic bacteria have a high proportion of 1-alk-1'-enyl ethers (plasmalogens) among their phospholipids. we have examined the effects of growth temperature on the phospholipid, fatty acid, and alk-1-enyl group compositions of clostridium butyricum. when the growth temperature was decreased from 37 degrees c to 25 degrees c, the proportion of glycerol phosphoglycerides (the sum of phosphatidylglycerol and the corresponding plasmalogen) increased at the expense of the ethanolamine and n-me ...19744415053

synthesis of pyruvate-1-11c as a radiopharmaceutical for tumor imaging.pyruvate-1-11c was prepared enzymatically by the exchange reaction of 11co2 with the carboxyl group of pyruvic acid using pyruvate-ferredoxin oxidoreductase from clostridium butyricum. 11c-labeled pyruvate was purified by sublimation in specially made glassware. the radiochemical yield of pure pyruvate-1-11c was 80% 35 min after the end of bombardment. the distribution of 11c in tumor-bearing rabbits after an i.v. injection of pyruvate-1-11c was observed using a gamma camera. in contrast to norm ...19854076234
metabolic and energetic aspects of the growth of clostridium butyricum on glucose in chemostat culture.the influence of a number of environmental parameters on the fermentation of glucose, and on the energetics of growth of clostridium butyricum in chemostat culture, have been studied. with cultures that were continuously sparged with nitrogen gas, glucose was fermented primarily to acetate and butyrate with a fixed stoichiometry. thus, irrespective of the growth rate, input glucose concentration, specific nutrient limitation and, within limits, the culture ph value, the acetate/butyrate molar ra ...19854062485
survey of neuraminidase production by clostridium butyricum, clostridium beijerinckii, and clostridium difficile strains from clinical and nonclinical sources.neuraminidase production was investigated in 57 clostridium butyricum strains, 16 clostridium beijerinckii strains, and 25 clostridium difficile strains. neuraminidase activity was found only in c. butyricum strains originating from one human newborn with neonatal necrotizing enterocolitis, two newborns with hemorrhagic colitis, one infected placenta, and one adult with peritonitis, it was concluded that neuraminidase was not a major virulence factor in c. butyricum strains.19854056013
phosphatidylserine decarboxylase from clostridium butyricum.phosphatidylserine decarboxylase activity has been characterized in membrane preparations from clostridium butyricum atcc 19398. a particulate fraction was shown to catalyze the formation of phosphatidylethanolamine and plasmenylethanolamine when vesicles containing phosphatidylserine and plasmenylserine were used as substrate. no plasmenylethanolamine was formed when phosphatidylserine alone was used as substrate. the activity with phosphatidylserine was activated by divalent cations and was op ...19854020299
[superoxide dismutase in clostridium butyricum spores].superoxide dismutase was found for the first time in the spores of the anaerobic bacterium clostridium butyricum. the prosthetic group of the enzyme was shown to contain iron. the enzyme was demonstrated to be highly thermostable.19854010556
lesions produced by clostridium butyricum strain cb 1002 in ligated intestinal loops in guinea pigs.heated spores (80 degrees c, 10 min) of clostridium butyricum strain cb 1002 isolated from a fatal case of necrotising enterocolitis in a human neonate were inoculated into ligated intestinal loops prepared in young conventional guinea pigs. necropsy findings 18 h later included congestion, patchy haemorrhage of the intestinal mucosa and bacteraemia. no abnormalities were observed in control loops given inocula of inactivated spores (heated at 100 degrees c for 10 min) or tyg 6 medium. the resul ...19854009690

experimental cecitis in gnotoxenic chickens monoassociated with clostridium butyricum strains isolated from patients with neonatal necrotizing enterocolitis.an animal model for clostridium butyricum necrotizing cecitis has been developed in axenic chickens inoculated orally between 2 and 50 days of life. cecitis was obtained with two c. butyricum strains isolated from neonatal necrotizing enterocolitis and not with a clostridium beijerinckii strain from dairy products; the rate of colonization of the intestinal tract by this strain was lower than that obtained with c. butyricum strains. the clinical findings showed a slow gain in body weight. the ce ...19853972448
phospholipid aliphatic chain composition modulates lipid class composition, but not lipid asymmetry in clostridium butyricum.the phospholipid composition of the butyric acid-producing clostridia is responsive to the degree of enrichment of the lipids with cis-unsaturated fatty acids. when clostridium butyricum and clostridium beijerinckii are grown on oleic acid in media devoid of biotin, the acyl and alk-1-enyl chains of the phospholipids become highly enriched with 18:1 and c19-cyclopropane. under these conditions there is a marked increase in the glycerol acetals of the major plasmalogens of these organisms. we hav ...19853970912
beta-lactamases in anaerobic bacteria.the known mechanisms of beta-lactam resistance in anaerobic bacteria involve production of beta-lactamases, alteration of penicillin-binding proteins and blocked penetration of beta-lactams through the outer membranes. the most important factor in beta-lactam resistance is production of beta-lactamase. beta-lactamases in various bacteroides, fusobacterium and clostridium species have been described. beta-lactam resistance in bacteroides fragilis is most commonly mediated by beta-lactamase produc ...19853877980
[biological activity of a polar lipid of clostridium butyricum spores].a fraction of polar lipids was isolated from spores of the anaerobic bacterium clostridium butyricum 35/11 exerting a noticeable radioprotective effect. the main biological activity of spore extracts was associated with this fraction. the fraction of polar lipids inhibited autolysis of the bacterial cell walls. the fraction was found to contain a phenolic glycolipid and a peptide component. the bacteriostatic and radiotherapeutic properties of the fraction are presumed to be due to its membranot ...19863821590
bifidobacterium, bacteroides, and clostridium spp. in fecal samples from breast-fed and bottle-fed infants with and without iron supplement.bifidobacterium, bacteroides, and clostridium spp. isolated from the feces of 23 neonates during the first 3 months of life were identified. of the 23 neonates, 10 were breast fed, 6 received an infant formula with iron supplement (5 mg/liter), and 7 received the formula without iron supplement (iron concentration, less than 0.5 mg/liter). the bifidobacterium spp. most frequently isolated from the three groups of infants were b. longum, b. breve, b. adolescentis, and b. bifidum. the bacteroides ...19873818925
two cases of type e infant botulism caused by neurotoxigenic clostridium butyricum in italy.the first two confirmed cases of type e infant botulism occurred in two 16-week-old girls in rome, italy. the original diagnosis for the first patient was intestinal blockage due to an ileocecal invagination, which was treated surgically. postoperatively, the patient became unresponsive and required ventilatory assistance. a diagnosis of infant botulism was then made. the second infant presented to the same hospital 7 1/2 months later with profound weakness, hypotonicity, mydriasis, and areflexi ...19863722863
