[experimental study of the action of the rnase from actinomyces rimosus on the variolovaccine virus].the effect of actinomyces rimosus rnaase on the variolovaccine virus was studied. the inhibitory effect of the actinomyces rimosus rnaase on the variolovaccine virus reproduction in the tissue culture cells was shown. in the experiments with the use of chick embryons and rabbits this effect was less pronounced. a 10 time increase in the infection multiplicity both in the tissue culture and the chick embryons had no noticeable effect on the level of the virus inhibition. it was supposed that the ...1979220906
occurrence of anaerobic bacteria in diseases of the dog and cat.a survey for anaerobic bacteria was conducted in 314 clinical specimens from dogs and cats. a total of 187 anaerobic isolates in pure and mixed culture were isolated from 111 of the specimens that contained anaerobic bacteria. common isolated included actinomyces (9.1%), clostridium perfringens (19.3%), other clostridium spp (11.2%), peptostreptococcus anaerobius (7.5%), bacteroides melaninogenicus (13.4%), other bacteroides spp (17.6%), and fusobacterium necrophorum (5.3%). anaerobic bacteria w ...1979224739
rat memory t lymphocytes. ii. differences in macrophage-dependent activation shown by actinomyces viscosus antigens and by mitogens, using silica in vitro.protein-coated silica, a macrophage toxin, was used to assess the requirement for accessory cells in the induction of an in vitro proliferative response to (i) antigens from actinomyces viscosus and (ii) the mitogens conconavalin a (con a) and phytohaemagglutinin (pha). t cells were obtained from ric-sprague-dawley rats primed in vivo with a. viscosus nyl by splenectomy and filtering the spleen cell suspensions through degalan ig-anti-igg columns. in the presence of 100 microgram silica/ml durin ...1979230582
neuraminidase-dependent hamagglutination of human erythrocytes by human strains of actinomyces viscosus and actinomyces naeslundii.human a, b, and o erythrocytes (rbc) were agglutinated by many human strains of actinomyces viscosus and a. naeslundii. at 37 degrees c, these bacterium-mediated hemagglutination reactions required the action of bacterial neuraminidase upon the rbc; however, at 4 degrees c, the requirement for neuraminidase was not as striking. bacterial cell suspensions which caused hemagglutination at 37 degrees c contained both soluble extracellular and cell-associated neuraminidase activities as shown by enz ...1979232691

[comparative characteristics of the ability to coagulate milk in different representatives of the order actinomycetales].the ability to clot milk was studied among 482 cultures of actinomycetales. the highest activity was manifested by thermophilic actinomycetes, the next come globisporous, white, and gray groups of the genus actinomyces. cultures belonging to the genera mycobacterium and mycococcus did not clot milk. the ability to clot milk can be used as an additional taxonomic index while studying ray fungi.1975240108
characterization of a dextranase produced by an oral strain of actinomyces israelii.a dextranase-producing, gram-positive, anaerobic, rod-shaped bacterium isolated from human dental plaque was identified as actinomyces israeli. although the extracellular dextranase (ec formed by this microbe appeared to be constitutively produced, the bacterium did not utilize the reaction products as a carbon source during growth. a striking feature of the dextranase was the formation of two distinct groups of oligosaccharide end products. the two groups presumably correspond to the ...1975240779
[formation of dextranases by mycelial fungi and actinomycetes].the dextranase activity of cultures of mycelial fungi of different genera and actinomycetes from the chromogenes species of the actinomyces genus was studied. about one third of the mycelial fungi and 8% of actinomycetes showed dextranase activity. the resulting extracellular dextranases demonstrated on endotypic pattern of action on the substrate. actinomycete dextranases were several times more active than fungal dextranases and exhibited a significant activity in the neutral and weakly alkali ...1975241997
