bacteremia due to a novel microbacterium species in a patient with leukemia and description of microbacterium paraoxydans sp. nov.a yellow-pigmented coryneform rod was isolated from the blood of a child with acute lymphoblastic leukemia who was perfused with a central venous catheter. the culture bottles were positive twice, at a 2-month interval. the isolate was identified as a microbacterium sp. and studied along with five other similar strains. phenotypic, chemotaxonomic, and genetic characteristics indicated that they are closely related to microbacterium oxydans but that they belong to a distinct species, for which th ...200312734292
microbacterium oleivorans sp. nov. and microbacterium hydrocarbonoxydans sp. nov., novel crude-oil-degrading gram-positive bacteria.a taxonomic study of two crude-oil-degrading, gram-positive bacterial strains, designated bas69(t) and bnp48(t), revealed that they represent two novel microbacterium species. 16s rrna gene sequence similarity to their closest phylogenetic neighbours was 98.5 % for bas69(t) (microbacterium paraoxydans dsm 15019(t) and microbacterium saperdae dsm 20169(t)) and 99 % for bnp48(t) (microbacterium luteolum dsm 20143(t)). levels of dna-dna relatedness to the closest phylogenetic neighbours of both str ...200515774639

identification and virulence of aeromonas dhakensis, pseudomonas mosselii and microbacterium paraoxydans isolated from nile tilapia, oreochromis niloticus, cultivated in identify bacterial pathogens of diseased niie tilapia oreochromis niloticus and determine their virulence.201323758410
fluoranthene degradation and binding mechanism study based on the active-site structure of ring-hydroxylating dioxygenase in microbacterium paraoxydans this study, a gram-positive fluoranthene-degrading bacterial strain was isolated from crude oil in dagang oilfield and identified as microbacterium paraoxydans jpm1 by the analysis of 16s rdna sequence. after 25 days of incubation, the strain jpm1 could degrade 91.78 % of the initial amount of fluoranthene. moreover, four metabolites 9-fluorenone-1-carboxylic acid, 9-fluorenone, phthalic acid, and benzoic acid were detected in the culture solution. the gene sequence encoding the aromatic-ring ...201727722881
peritoneal dialysis-related peritonitis caused by microbacterium paraoxydans.a 54-year-old woman receiving continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis was admitted, complaining of diffuse abdominal pain. peritoneal fluid cell analysis showed that the white blood cell count was 2,990 cells/mm(3), with a neutrophil count of 2,510 cells/mm(3). the patient was treated empirically with intraperitoneal cefazolin and ceftazidime. after 6 days, microbacterium species grew on a peritoneal dialysate culture that had been collected on the day of admission. we analyzed the 16s rrna ge ...201727169951
biotransformation of sucrose into hexyl-α-d-glucopyranoside and -polyglucosides by whole cells of microbacterium determine the transglycosylation activity of cell-bound enzymes from microbacterium paraoxydans to catalyze the synthesis of hexyl-α-d-glucoside (hg) and -polyglucosides using sucrose as a glycosyl donor.201525773197
the first case report of peritoneal dialysis related peritonitis caused by microbacterium paraoxydans.peritonitis is still the major complication associated with peritoneal dialysis (pd). microbacterium spp., a type of coryneform bacteria, is an environmental bacterium isolated from soil, waste water and animals. human infection is rare, and only few cases have so far been reported in immunocompromised hosts, such as pd patients. microbacterium paraoxydans, one type of microbacterium spp. was identified for the first time in 2003. only two cases of infection of microbacterium paraoxydans have so ...201323618377
synthesis of hexyl α-glucoside and α-polyglucosides by a novel microbacterium isolate.alkyl-glucosides and alkyl-polyglucosides are the new-generation biodegradable surfactants with good emulsifying and wetting properties. the α-forms of these glucosides occur in antibiotics and also stimulate nasal absorption of many drugs. in this paper, we report the synthesis of hexyl α-glucoside and α-polyglucosides using cell-bound α-glucosidase activity of a novel strain of microbacterium paraoxydans. a number of cell-bound glycosyl hydrolase activities were detected in the isolate with th ...201323579729
arsenic hyper-tolerance in four microbacterium species isolated from soil contaminated with textile effluent.arsenic-contaminated areas of sanganer, jaipur, rajasthan, india were surveyed for the presence of metal resistant bacteria contaminated with textile effluent. samples were collected from soil receiving regular effluent from the textile industries located at sanganer area. the properties like ph, electrical conductivity, organic carbon, organic matter, exchangeable calcium, water holding capacity and metals like arsenic, iron, magnesium, lead and zinc were estimated in the contaminated soil. in ...201222778519
identification of a bacterial strain isolated from the liver of a laboratory mouse as microbacterium paraoxydans and emended description of the species microbacterium paraoxydans laffineur et al 2003.a rod-shaped, gram-positive bacterial strain, designated c57-33, was isolated from the liver of the laboratory mouse strain c57bl/6j and characterised by a polyphasic approach. 16s rrna gene sequence similarity placed strain c57-33 in the genus microbacterium with microbacterium paraoxydans cf36(t) as the next relative (99.9% sequence similarity). major fatty acids ai-c(15:0), i-c(16:0) and ai-c(17:0) and peptidoglycan type b2β with ornithine as the diagnostic cell-wall diamino acid and glycolyl ...200823100717
isolation and characterization of lead-tolerant ochrobactrum intermedium and its role in enhancing lead accumulation by eucalyptus this study, the potential of rhizospheric bacteria in promoting the growth and pb accumulation by the woody plant eucalyptus camaldulensis under hydroponic conditions was investigated for the first time. three pb-tolerant bacteria were isolated from the rhizosphere of e. camaldulensis grown in pb-contaminated soils in the bo ngam pb mine, thailand. based on analysis of partial 16s rrna gene sequence, the three isolates were identified as microbacterium paraoxydans bn-2, ochrobactrum intermedi ...201121764101
