Disease relevance of Sarcina


High impact information on Sarcina

  • A novel bioselective membrane electrode for L-glutamine has been constructed by coupling living bacteria of the strain Sarcina flava to a potentiometric ammonia gas sensor [6].
  • A white, carotenoid-negative mutant strain of Sarcina lutea was more susceptible to the acetaldehyde-xanthine oxidase system than was the yellow, carotenoid-positive parent strain [7].
  • The concentration of cefotaxime in serum was assayed by agar diffusion, with Sarcina lutea ATCC 9341 as the indicator strain [8].
  • The methanol extract of Sarcina lutea, one of the most susceptible bacteria, was found to reverse the antimicrobial activity of copiamycin [9].
  • Production of L-serine by Sarcina albida [10].

Chemical compound and disease context of Sarcina

  • We called this polymer purinogen and devised a means of assaying it quantitively [Patel, B., Sarcina, M. & Mowbray, J. (1994) Eur. J. Biochem. 220, 663-669] [11].
  • 2. The plasma, bone, hip capsule and drain fluid concentrations of ampicillin and flucloxacillin were measured by a differential small plate microbiological assay method using Sarcina lutea and a penicillinase producing Staph. aureus Russell as the test organisms [12].
  • Miocamycin was measured by a microbiological procedure using Sarcina lutea ATCC 9341 [13].
  • In contrast to previous results with Sarcina lutea, the NCS-induced DNA degradation was stimulated by chloramphenicol in B. subtilis and the DNA fragment were not the final breakdown products, but were further degraded into acid-soluble materials [14].
  • New isoprenologs of vitamin K2 series in Sarcina lutea [15].

Anatomical context of Sarcina


Gene context of Sarcina

  • A PDC gene from the Gram-positive bacterium Sarcina ventriculi (Spdc) was introduced into an LDH-deficient strain, L. plantarum TF103, in which both the ldhL and ldhD genes were inactivated [16].
  • Drug concentrations in serum and CSF of these patients were measured by a microbiological tube dilution method using a strain of Sarcina lutea [17].
  • In the laboratory study, polished and etched bovine enamel specimens were stained for 4 days with a coffee, tea, and mucin, Sarcina lutea tartox culture in trypticase soy broth [18].
