Pseudomonas aeruginosa uses a phage to trick the host’s immune system into ignoring it, in turn suppressing bacterial clearance from infected wounds, according to new research.
New research reveals how Pseudomonas aeruginosa delivers toxins via communication molecules to cause illness.
Overcoming intrinsic resistance in Pseudomonas aeruginosa using non-ribosome targeting tobramycin-based adjuvants
In this article, the authors discuss their research using non-ribosome targeting tobramycin-based adjuvants to overcome the intrinsic resistance observed in bacteria, Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
A new gene identified in P. aeruginosa could act as a prognostic biomarker and treatment target for patients with bloodstream infections.
Synergistic and antibiofilm properties of ocellatin peptides against multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa
In this article, the authors test ocellatin peptides against one of the most concerning priority pathogens, Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Investigating heat-shock gene htpG and the production of virulence factors in Pseudomonas aeruginosa
This study, recently published in Future Microbiology, aimed to study the effects of encoded heat-shock protein 90 homolog (htpG) on the selected virulence factors responsible for pathogenesis and biofilm formation of P. aeruginosa.
Insights into the evolution of the mutational resistome of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in cystic fibrosis
The term resistome was first used to account for the set of primary antibiotic resistance genes that could be eventually transferred to human pathogens, this editorial delves into the evolution of the mutational resistome of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in cystic fibrosis.
Green synthesis of capped gold nanoparticles and their effect on Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria
This research reports the synthesis of capped gold nanoparticles by reducing HAuCl4 with flower and leaf extracts of Ocimum tenuiflorum, leaves of Azadirachta indica and Mentha spicata and peel of Citrus sinensis plants and assessed their activity on Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Klebsiella pneumoniae.
