Our investigations revealed that streptomycetes produce -in addition to secondary metabolites- a large repertoire of novel proteins, which contribute to inhibit the growth of certain fungi. Based on these findings, we hypothesized a possible concerted interaction of Streptomyces strain(s) with the fungal plant pathogen Verticillium dahliae. This filamentous fungus causes worldwide the vascular wilt of over 200 dicotyledonous plant species including important field and horticultural crops, flowers and tree species. Due to the absence of specific, and approved fungicides against V. dahliae, and the low-level resistance of the cultivars against this pathogen, losses are immense. We found that Streptomyces lividans strongly reduces the germination of V. dahliae conidia, the subsequent growth of hyphae as well as their differentiation to conidia and microsclerotia, which survive harsh conditions. Plants (Arabidopsis thaliana), which arise in the presence of V. dahliae within agar or soil, have damaged root cells, an atrophied stem and root, as well as poorly developed leaves with chlorosis symptoms. In contrast, S. lividans hyphae settle in bunches preferentially at the outer layer near tips and alongside roots. Resulting plants have a healthy appearance including an intact root system. A. thaliana seeds, which are co-inoculated with V. dahliae and S. lividans, have preferentially proliferating bacterial hyphae within the seed-mucilage and at roots of the outgrowing seedlings. As a result, plants have considerably reduced disease symptoms. As spores of the beneficial S. lividans strain are obtainable in large quantity, its application in biocontrol is discussed.

Potential weapons for the battle against antibiotic resistance discovered

The bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa can produce specific molecular factors that dramatically increase or decrease an antibiotic's ability to kill Staphylococcus aureus, another bacterium that often co-infects with P. aeruginosa. The findings point to the possibility of new antibiotics employing these factors to enhance antibiotic susceptibility.

Walnuts may promote health by changing gut bacteria

A new study has found that walnuts in the diet change the makeup of bacteria in the gut, which suggests a new way walnuts may contribute to better health.

Moćni mikrobi – prikaz knjige Mighty Microbes – The Amazing World of Microorganisms

Skupina znanstvenika i popularizatora znanosti iz Nizozemske se s ovom idejom pozabavila kroz fundaciju Microcanoni, nizozemsku inačicu projekta naziva „Što doista trebate znati o mikrobiologiji“ još 2011. Ta verzija prezentirana je i u amsterdamskom muzeju Artis Micropia, a djelo na engleskome čiji vam prikaz donosim je korak dalje koji je ova skupina ljudi poduzela u ulozi urednika knjige s naslovom Mighty Microbes i podnsalovom The Amazing World of Microorganisms. Osmislili su građu podijeljenu u devet tematskih cjelina, a unutar svake je pet do deset poglavlja (tema) za koje su kao autore ili suautore odabrali znanstvenike koji su sudjelovali u ključnim otkrićima ili su istaknuti stručnjaci u tom području.

Priručnik za vježbe iz opće mikrobiologije

Ovaj sveučilišni priručnik napisalo je petnaestak autora iz desetak visokoškolskih ustanova iz Zagreba i Rijeke, a sadržaj je podijeljen u petnaest, slikama bogato ilustriranih poglavlja u kojima su opisane i obrađene različite bakteriološke, virološke, mikološke, imunološke i molekularno-biološke metode koje se upotrebljavaju u općoj mikrobiologiji koja se studira na nizu različitih fakulteta i visokih škola.
