case of paracoccus yeei infection documented in a transplanted heart.after a successful cardiac transplantation, routine endomyocardial biopsies showed severe infiltrates comparable with myocarditis. polymerase chain reaction analysis of native myocardial samples revealed infection with paracoccus yeei, and the clinical condition of the patient deteriorated. after administration of ciprofloxacin, his clinical condition improved, and further biopsies showed no infiltrates in the cardiac specimens. to our knowledge this is the first documented case of p. yeei infec ...201120854281
in vitro antibacterial activity of ibuprofen and acetaminophen.ibuprofen and acetaminophen are common chemical agents that have anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, and analgesic activity.201020606962
paracoccus yeei: a new unusual opportunistic bacterium in ambulatory peritoneal dialysis.paracoccus yeei was identified as the etiologic agent of peritonitis in an ambulatory peritoneal dialysis patient. while the old biochemical identification kits are not able to identify this species, the new colorimetric vitek 2 gn card correctly identified this isolate in 7hours. its identity was confirmed by sequencing of the 16s rrna gene.201019556157
first comprehensively documented case of paracoccus yeei infection in a human.paracoccus yeei was isolated in pure culture from an aerobic blood culture and bulla fluid from a 67-year-old male. the biochemical identification scheme for this recently described species is outlined. because of its reaction pattern it is not unlikely that p. yeei is underdiagnosed.200415243119
cultural and chemical characterization of cdc groups eo-2, m-5, and m-6, moraxella (moraxella) species, oligella urethralis, acinetobacter species, and psychrobacter immobilis.we determined phenotypic characteristics, cellular fatty acid composition, and isoprenoid quinone content of representative strains of cdc groups eo-2, m-5, and m-6, moraxella (moraxella) species, oligella urethralis, acinetobacter species, and psychrobacter immobilis. all organisms contained ubiquinone with eight isoprene units as the major isoprenolog, but distinct differences were observed in fatty acid composition. twenty-eight of the original collection of cdc group eo-2 strains were furthe ...19883356788
Potential activity of the purine compounds caffeine and aminophylline on bacteria.Purine compounds are special types of alkaloids. Caffeine and aminophylline are considered the most important members of purines due to their wide use in therapeutics.201121731299
paracoccus yeeii sp. nov. (formerly cdc group eo-2), a novel bacterial species associated with human infection.cdc eugonic oxidizer group 2 (eo-2) is a group of unclassified gram-negative bacterial strains isolated from various human sources. as determined by biochemical tests and analyses of fatty acid compositions, these organisms form a homogeneous group that appears to be distinct from but related to other paracoccus species. molecular studies were performed on a set of 13 eo-2 strains from various clinical sources and geographic locations in the united states and canada to determine their relationsh ...200312624070
relationship of cdc group eo-2 and psychrobacter immobilis.thirty strains of microorganisms previously classified in the cdc group eo-2 were studied to determine the relationship of this group and the recently proposed psychrobacter immobilis. results of transformation studies indicated that 9 of the 30 studied strains should be reclassified as p. immobilis. while transformation studies should be used to identify the psychrobacter genus definitively, some presumptive characteristics useful in differentiating the cdc group eo-2 and p. immobilis were obse ...19873667912
corneal graft rejection complicated by paracoccus yeei infection in a patient who had undergone a penetrating keratoplasty.a 68-year-old man who had undergone two penetrating keratoplasties of his left eye was admitted with early corneal graft failure. culture of the anterior chamber fluid yielded paracoccus yeei, a nonfermentative gram-negative bacillus which thus far had only been implicated in ocular disease by means of pcr and 16s rrna gene sequencing directly on patient material.201019889897
high prevalence of fastidious bacteria in 1520 cases of uveitis of unknown etiology.the etiologic evaluation of uveitis is frequently unsuccessful when noninvasive methods are used. we conducted a prospective study to evaluate systematic screening for pathogens of uveitis. all patients with uveitis referred to the participating tertiary ophthalmology departments from january 2001 to september 2007 underwent intraocular and serum specimen collection. the standardized protocol for laboratory investigations included universal polymerase chain reaction (pcr)-based detection of any ...200818520326

paracoccus yeei keratitis in a contact lens wearer.paracoccus yeei is an environmental bacterium suspected to be responsible for ocular infections. in this study, culture-based and polymerase chain reaction (pcr) sequencing-based investigations of a corneal scraping specimen confirmed p. yeei keratitis in one contact lens wearer.201424045834

16s ribosomal dna sequence-based identification of bacteria in laboratory rodents: a practical approach in laboratory animal bacteriology diagnostics.correct identification of bacteria is crucial for the management of rodent colonies. some bacteria are difficult to identify phenotypically outside reference laboratories. in this study, we evaluated the utility of 16s ribosomal dna (rdna) sequencing as a means of identifying a collection of 30 isolates of rodent origin which are conventionally difficult to identify. sequence analysis of the first approximate 720 to 880 bp of the 5'- end of 16s rdna identified 25 isolates (83.33%) with ≥ 99% sim ...201424876090
