Antimicrobial activity in culturable gut microbial communities of springtails.

Summary of "Antimicrobial activity in culturable gut microbial communities of springtails."

The rise of antibiotic resistance pushes the pharmaceutical industry to continually search for substances with new structures and novel mechanisms of action. Many environmental niches are still to be explored as sources of antimicrobials. In this paper we assess the antimicrobial potential of gut microbes of springtails, soil invertebrates which live in a microbe-dominated environment and are known to be tolerant to entomopathogenic microorganisms.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Enumeration by direct count of viable, isolated bacterial, archaeal, or fungal CELLS or SPORES capable of growth on solid CULTURE MEDIA. Each colony (i.e., microbial colony-forming unit) represents the progeny of a single cell in the original inoculum. The method is used routinely by environmental microbiologists for quantifying organisms in AIR; FOOD; and WATER; by clinicians for measuring patients' microbial load; and in antimicrobial drug testing.

The ability of microorganisms, especially bacteria, to resist or to become tolerant to chemotherapeutic agents, antimicrobial agents, or antibiotics. This resistance may be acquired through gene mutation or foreign DNA in transmissible plasmids (R FACTORS).

The natural bactericidal property of BLOOD due to normally occurring antibacterial substances such as beta lysin, leukin, etc. This activity needs to be distinguished from the bactericidal activity contained in a patient's serum as a result of antimicrobial therapy, which is measured by a SERUM BACTERICIDAL TEST.

A hydroxynaphthoquinone that has antimicrobial activity and is being used in antimalarial protocols.

A broad-spectrum antimicrobial fluoroquinolone. The drug strongly inhibits the DNA-supercoiling activity of DNA GYRASE.
