lactobacillus apis sp. nov., from the stomach of honeybees (apis mellifera), having an in vitro inhibitory effect on the causative agents of american and european foulbrood.a taxonomic study was performed on gram-stain-positive, catalase-negative and regular rod-shaped bacterial strains r4b(t) and r4c, isolated from the stomachs of honeybees. 16s rrna gene sequence analysis revealed that the phylogenetic position of the novel strains was within the genus lactobacillus; the highest sequence similarity to r4b(t) was shown by lactobacillus acidophilus bcrc 10695(t) (93.6 %). lower sequence similarities were found to other obligately homofermentative lactobacilli. a pc ...201424096349
changes in the bacteriome of honey bees associated with the parasite varroa destructor, and pathogens nosema and lotmaria passim.the honey bee, apis mellifera, is a globally important species that suffers from a variety of pathogens and parasites. these parasites and pathogens may have sublethal effects on their bee hosts via an array of mechanisms, including through a change in symbiotic bacterial taxa. our aim was to assess the influence of four globally widespread parasites and pathogens on the honey bee bacteriome. we examined the effects of the ectoparasitic mite varroa destructor, the fungal pathogens nosema apis an ...201727730366
novel lactic acid bacteria isolated from the bumble bee gut: convivina intestini gen. nov., sp. nov., lactobacillus bombicola sp. nov., and weissella bombi sp. nov.twelve isolates of lactic acid bacteria (lab) were obtained in the course of a bumble bee gut microbiota study and grouped into four matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionisation time-of-flight mass spectrometry clusters. comparative 16s rrna gene sequence analysis revealed that cluster 1 isolates, represented by strain lmg 28288(t), are most closely related to lactobacillus apis (97.0% sequence similarity to that of l. apis lmg 26964(t)). cluster 2 isolates represented by strain lmg 28290(t) are ...201525783976
