The responses of bacterial communities to halocarbon were examined using a 28-d incubation of bromoform- and methanol-enriched subarctic surface seawater. Significant increases were observed in dibromomethane concentrations and bacterial 16S rRNA gene copy numbers in the treated substrates incubated for 13 d. The accumulated bacterial community was...
Cyanobacteria of biological soil crusts (BSCs) represent an important part of circumpolar and Alpine ecosystems, serve as indicators for ecological condition and climate change, and function as ecosystem engineers by soil stabilization or carbon and nitrogen input. The characterization of cyanobacteria from both polar regions remains extremely impo...

In the present work, water soluble chitosan (WSC) was prepared and growth curves of Lactobacillus delbrueckii and Escherichia coli were examined in vitro. In vivo, mice were randomly divided into three groups (10 mice in each group), treated with water, 1 g/kg WSC and 0.25 g/kg of WSC respectively for 24 days. Subsequently, levofloxacin (65 mg/kg) ...

This study aimed to study whether the Sortase A (srtA) gene helps mediate coaggregation and co-adherence between Streptococcus mutans (S. mutans) and other salivary bacteria. S. mutans UA159 and srtA-deficient mutant served as “bait” in classical co-aggregation assays and membrane-based co-adherence assays were used to examine interactions of S. mu...

This study investigated the gastrointestinal microbiota in three genetically identical cloned dogs (A, B and C) by somatic cell nuclear transfer. We collected feces from three cloned dogs and their feed to investigate gastrointestinal microbiota using both culture-dependent and culture-independent methods. A total of 962 strains from the feces of c...
Diabetes is a serious endocrine and metabolic disorder. Food supplements attract people's attention in mitigating health problems from the aspect of gastrointestinal microflora. Maydis stigma (Zea mays subsp. mays L. [Poaceae]), has been used as water decoction for treating diabetes in folk medicine. It has great potential, and feasibly a stable fo...

Micro-communities are supposed to have more potential functions of biodegradation of polysaccharides than single strain; however, the intestinal micro-communities involved in the biodegradation of Enteromorpha polysaccharides (EP) were seldom reported. In order to obtain the EP-degrading micro-community, the intestines of Siganus oramin was obtaine...
