gordonia sputi bacteremia. 200919788838
infections caused by gordonia species at a medical centre in taiwan, 1997 to 2008.the inability of conventional identification systems to accurately identify gordonia spp. often results in the misdiagnosis of infections by these rare pathogens, which require genomic sequencing for precise identification. in the present study, we describe nine cases of the various types of infection caused by gordonia spp. from 1997 to 2008, 66 isolates (from 30 patients) initially identified as rhodoccus spp. by conventional biochemical methods, by the bacteriology laboratory of national taiw ...201019832703
five cases of bacteraemia due to gordonia species.gordonia species are aerobic gram-positive bacilli and a rare cause of human disease. to our knowledge, there are only two cases of human infection with gordonia sputi reported in the literature. we report five cases of bacteraemia due to gordonia species at our institution since 2005, including four caused by g. sputi. three of these cases were likely related to chronic indwelling central venous catheters.200919528153
the isolation of microorganisms capable of phenol degradation.the results of a study on the composition of microflora settling the pilot biofilter bed that purifies the exhausting gases from a cable factory's coil-wire varnishing division are presented in this study. the ability of isolated bacterial strains to biodegrade phenol was also evaluated using culture media of various compositions. phenol was introduced into the medium at the following concentrations: 0.25, 0.5, 0.75 and 1 g x dm(-3). in addition, air in desiccators, where micro-organisms grew, w ...200616878606
a novel phosphatidylinositol manno-oligosaccharide (dpim-8) from gordonia sputi.the deacylated phosphatidylinositol manno-oligosaccharides (dpims) from the glycosyl phosphatidylinositol (gpi) carbohydrate antigen anchor of gordonia sputi were the known 2,6-di-o-alpha-mannopyranosyl-myo-inositol glycerophosphate (dpim-2) and the illustrated novel compound (dpim-8), which could not be separated from dpim-7 and dpim-6, these three compounds being present in the mixture in the molar ratios 1.0:0.65:0.4. dpim-8 is an analogue of dpim-2 (and also of dpim-7 and dpim-6) in having a ...200515907815
mediastinitis due to gordona sputi after cabg.genus gordona is included in mycolic acid containing bacteria. this genus infection is very rare and occurs classically in immuno-compromised patients. we report a patient who developed mediastinitis due to gordona sputi after coronary artery bypass grafting (cabg) using left internal mammary artery. immunocompromised factors were not noticed in this case but postoperative bleeding, the most important risk factor of mediastinitis, was found in his course. the treatment was antibiotic therapy, su ...199910597001
numerical analysis of the taxonomy of nocardiae and rhodococci.the genera nocardia and rhodococcus were clearly differentiated in the present study. eleven characteristics were shown to be useful for differentiation between these two genera. nocardia asteroides sunsu stricto previously defined by tsukamura was divided into two taxa. one contained the type strain and was considered to retain the name nocardia asteroides in a new sense. another was named in the present study as nocardia nova sp. nov. tsukamura. the type strain of this species is atcc 33726. t ...19826763136
mesenteric lymphadenitis of swine caused by rhodococcus sputi.rhodococcus sputi caused tuberculosislike lymphadenitis of mesenteric lymph nodes in swine. this is the first study reporting that r. sputi can be a pathogen in swine.19883343310
characterization of clinical isolates of gordonia species in japanese clinical samples during 1998-2008.during 1998-2008, there were 31 strains of gordonia species isolated from clinical specimens in our laboratory. our identification of the 31 strains of gordonia species showed that major pathogenic gordonia species in japan were classifiable, respectively into 14 and 13 strains of gordonia sputi and gordonia bronchialis. the four remaining strains were identified as three gordonia species: g. aichiensis (2 strains), and g. terrae (1 strain), and g. otitidis (1 strain). results of drug susceptibi ...200919488833
gordonia otitidis sp. nov., isolated from a patient with external otitis.the taxonomic positions of two clinically isolated actinomycetes were established using a polyphasic approach. the two strains, ifm 10032(t), isolated from ear discharge of a 28-year-old japanese female patient with external otitis, and ifm 10148, isolated from pleural fluid of a 60-year-old japanese male patient with bronchitis, possessed meso-diaminopimelic acid as the diagnostic amino acid, mk-9(h(2)) as the predominant menaquinone and mycolic acids ranging from 58 to 64 carbons. the 16s rrna ...200516166681
a taxonomic note on the authorship and date of valid publication of rhodococcus sputi.authorship of the name rhodococcus sputi is variously attributed to tsukamura 1978 or tsukamura and yano 1985. dna-dna binding data indicate that this species and rhodococcus obuensis tsukamura 1983 and rhodococcus chubuensis tsukamura 1983 are subjective (heterotypic) synonyms. although these organisms have been placed in the genus gordonia as gordonia sputi, the correct name of the taxon created by unification of these three species is directly affected by the date of valid publication of thes ...200111211266
bacteremia due to gordona sputi in an immunocompromised patient.we report a case of bacteremia due to a strain identified as gordona sputi in a patient with metastatic melanoma. the origin of infection remains unknown, but extensive cutaneous lesions due to interleukin-2 treatment may have been the portal of entry. the isolate was related to g. sputi on the basis of its biochemical and genomic properties but exhibited some differences from the type strain.19968818912
isolation and taxonomic study of a new canthaxanthin-containing bacterium, gordonia jacobaea mv-1 sp. nov.this article describes the isolation and taxonomic study of a coryneform isolate of a new gordonia species (g. jacobaea), strain mv-1, which accumulates several carotenoids, including the ketocarotenoid trans-canthaxanthin. identification of this new isolate by morphobiochemical methods did not allow unambiguous taxon assignment, but sequencing of the 16s rrna gene clearly pointed to the genus gordonia, gordonia sputi being the closest fit. differences in certain transversions/transitions in oth ...200011001540
molecular detection and phylogenetic analysis of the catechol 1,2-dioxygenase gene from gordonia spp.the c12o gene (cata gene) encodes for catechol 1,2-dioxygenase, which is a key enzyme involved in the first step catalysis of the aromatic ring in the ortho-cleavage pathway. this functional gene can be used as a marker to assess the catabolic potential of bacteria in bioremediation. c12of and c12or primers were designed based on the conserved regions of the cata amino acid sequence of actinobacteria for amplifying the cata gene from the genus gordonia (16 gordonia representing 11 species). the ...200919428211
