serological and biochemical relationships between the alleged avirulent variant of corynebacterium kutscheri and streptococci of group n.morphological, biochemical and serological observations suggested that no close relationship existed between c. kutscheri and its alleged avirulent variant isolated from mice at the rockefeller university. however, both capillary and double diffusion precipitin reactions showed the alleged variant to be a streptococcus of group n, indistinguishable from that previously isolated from rockefeller university mice.1978418113

detection of corynebacterium kutscheri from the oral cavity of rats.a simple and useful method for the detection of c. kutscheri from the oral cavity of living rats was devised. in 10 sacrificed rats from two naturally and subclinically infected conventional colonies, 10(4.28) or 10(3.84) cfu/ml c. kutscheri were isolated from upper incisor swab extractions, while 10(1.38) or 10(1.58) and < 10 or 10(1.56) cfu/ml from the upper soft palate and pharynx, respectively. in another survey with 26 living animals, which were reared on the same rack, organisms were detec ...200211871160
role of il-10 deficiency in pneumonia induced by corynebacterium kutscheri in is an important anti-inflammatory cytokine that can inhibit the production of many pro-inflammatory cytokines. both human and animal studies have shown that pro-inflammatory cytokines play an important role in pneumonia and other inflammatory lung diseases. in the present study, il-10 knockout (ko) and wild-type mice were infected with corynebacterium kutscheri to determine whether the severity of pathogenesis and whether protective immunity could be altered in the absence of il- 10. the s ...200919421001
biodegradation of petroleum hydrocarbons in the presence of nickel and cobalt.bioremediation of environments co-contaminated with hydrocarbons and heavy metals often pose a challenge as heavy metals exert toxicity to existing communities of hydrocarbon degraders. multi-resistant bacterial strains were studied for ability to degrade hydrocarbons in chemically defined media amended with 5.0 mm ni(2+), and co(2+). the bacteria, pseudomonas aeruginosa ca207ni, burkholderia cepacia al96co, and corynebacterium kutscheri fl108hg, utilized crude oil and anthracene without lag pha ...201323457074
chromium (vi) biosorption properties of multiple resistant bacteria isolated from industrial sewerage.chromium (vi) [cr (vi)] biosorption by four resistant autochthonous bacterial strains was investigated to determine their potential for use in sustainable marine water-pollution control. maximum exchange between cr (vi) ions and protons on the cells surfaces were at 30-35 °c, ph 2.0 and 350-450 mg/l. the bacterial strains effectively removed 79.0-90.5 % cr (vi) ions from solution. furthermore, 85.3-93.0 % of cr (vi) ions were regenerated from the biomasses, and 83.4-91.7 % of the metal was adsor ...201323315153
complete genome sequence of corynebacterium kutscheri dsm 20755, a corynebacterial type strain with remarkably low g+c content of chromosomal dna.the complete genome sequence of the type strain corynebacterium kutscheri dsm 20755 comprises 2,354,065 bp and 2,047 protein-coding genes. the mean g+c content of the chromosomal dna is 46.46%, which is the lowest value detected so far in a member of the genus corynebacterium.201526021937
rapid identification of klebsiella pneumoniae, corynebacterium kutscheri, and streptococcus pneumoniae using triplex polymerase chain reaction in rodents.klebsiella pneumoniae, corynebacterium kutscheri, and streptococcus pneumoniae are important pathogens that cause respiratory infections in laboratory rodents. in this study, we used species-specific triplex pcr analysis to directly detect three common bacterial pathogens associated with respiratory diseases. specific targets were amplified with conventional pcr using the tyrb gene from k. pneumoniae, gyrb gene from c. kutscheri, and ply gene from s. pneumoniae. our primers were tested against p ...201323357944
modulation of immune response by interleukin-10 in systemic corynebacterium kutscheri infection in mice.interleukin (il)-10 is an anti-inflammatory cytokine that modulates sepsis by decreasing pro-inflammatory cytokine production and chemokine expression. in this study, il-10-deficient and wild-type (wt) mice were infected with corynebacterium kutscheri to determine if the absence of il-10 altered the protective immunity and pathogenesis. after infection, il-10 knockout (ko) mice had a higher survival rate than wt mice. the decrease of body weight and the increased weight of organs such as liver a ...201222538660
epidemiological study of common diseases and their risk factors in camels in south punjab, pakistan.bacteriological study of mastitis along with common blood protozoan diseases were studied in dromedary camels in cholistan, dera ismail khan and rahim yar khan districts in south punjab, pakistan. for this purpose 300 camels were sampled randomly at different common grazing and watering point. for study of blood parasites clinically suspected and apparently healthy camels, 150 each, were sampled. an overall prevalence of 15%and 5% was recorded for trypanosomiasis and anaplasmosis respectively. t ...201728428133
effect of weak acid hypochlorous solution on selected viruses and bacteria of laboratory rodents.weak acid hypochlorous solution (wahs) is known to have efficacy for inactivating pathogens and to be relatively safe with respect to the live body. based on these advantages, many animal facilities have recently been introducing wahs for daily cleaning of animal houses. in this study, we determined the effect of wahs in inactivating specific pathogens of laboratory rodents and pathogens of opportunistic infection. wahs with an actual chloride concentration of 60 ppm and a ph value of 6.0 was ge ...201424770639
corynebacterium kutscheri invasiveness of the gastrointestinal tract in young mice.corynebacterium kutscheri invasiveness of the tissues of the gastrointestinal tract in mice was investigated by the fluorescent antibody technique. the invasion was clearly recognized in 3-week-old mice infected intragastrically along with gastric mucin and a subcutaneous dose of cortisone; 10(7) organisms caused a notable invasion of the gastric and duodenal tissues. furthermore, marked bacterial invasion of the large intestine appeared in mice challenged perorally with 7 x 10(7) organisms.19827140829
