Summary of "Molecular and Biochemical Characterization of Carbendazim-Resistant Field Isolates."

Stem-end rot caused by is a destructive disease of mango. field isolates resistant to carbendazim (MBC) were collected in Hainan Province, China. In this study, the characteristics of these field isolates with resistance to MBC were investigated. The resistance of isolates to MBC was stably inherited. Both the MBC-resistant and MBC-sensitive isolates had similar mycelial growth rates, pathogenicity, sensitivity to high glucose, glycerol content, and peroxidase activity. Compared with MBC-sensitive isolates, MBC-resistant isolates were more sensitive to low temperature and had a significant decrease in sensitivity to high NaCl and a significant increase in catalase (CAT) and glutathione S-transferase GST) activities. After MBC treatment, the cell membrane permeability of the sensitive isolates was markedly increased compared with that of the resistant isolates. Analysis of the β-tubulin gene sequence revealed point mutations resulting in substitutions at codon 198 from glutamic acid (GAG) to alanine (GCG) in moderately resistant isolates, and at codon 200 from phenylalanine (TTC) to tyrosine (TAC) in highly resistant isolates. These β-tubulin gene mutations were consistently associated with MBC resistance. Overall, we infer that the altered cell membrane permeability and the increase in CAT and GST activities of the resistant isolates are linked to MBC resistance.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The field of medicine concerned with understanding the biochemical basis of health and disease and involved in developing diagnostic and therapeutic methods that utilize MOLECULAR BIOLOGY techniques.

Tuberculosis resistant to chemotherapy with two or more ANTITUBERCULAR AGENTS, including at least ISONIAZID and RIFAMPICIN. The problem of resistance is particularly troublesome in tuberculous OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS associated with HIV INFECTIONS. It requires the use of second line drugs which are more toxic than the first line regimens. TB with isolates that have developed further resistance to at least three of the six classes of second line drugs is defined as EXTENSIVELY DRUG-RESISTANT TUBERCULOSIS.

Using MOLECULAR BIOLOGY techniques, such as DNA SEQUENCE ANALYSIS; PULSED-FIELD GEL ELECTROPHORESIS; and DNA FINGERPRINTING, to identify, classify, and compare organisms and their subtypes.

Strains of the genus Enterococcus that are resistant to the antibiotic VANCOMYCIN. The enterococci become resistant by acquiring plasmids carrying genes for VANCOMYCIN RESISTANCE.

A COAGULASE-negative species of STAPHYLOCOCCUS found on the skin and MUCOUS MEMBRANE of warm-blooded animals. Similar to STAPHYLOCOCCUS EPIDERMIDIS and STAPHYLOCOCCUS HAEMOLYTICUS, it is a nosocomial pathogen in NICU settings. Subspecies include generally antibiotic susceptible and BIOFILM negative capitis and antibiotic resistant and biofilm positive urealyticus isolates.
