Disease relevance of Peptostreptococcus


High impact information on Peptostreptococcus

  • It has been shown that L-serine dehydratase from the anaerobic bacterium Peptostreptococcus asaccharolyticus contains an iron-sulfur cluster but no PLP [6].
  • Some strains of the anaerobic human commensal and pathogen Peptostreptococcus magnus bind human serum albumin (HSA), whereas other strains of this species express protein L, an immunoglobulin light chain-binding surface protein [7].
  • Protein L of the anaerobic bacterial species Peptostreptococcus magnus binds Ig light chains, whereas streptococcal protein G has affinity for the constant (Fc) region of IgG [8].
  • Protein L is an immunoglobulin (Ig)-binding protein produced by the Gram-positive bacterium Peptostreptococcus magnus that interacts with the variable region of Ig kappa light chains [9].
  • Faropenem had MICs of 8 and 16 micro g/ml, respectively, for two strains of Peptostreptococcus anaerobius (MICs of imipenem were 2 micro g/ml) [10].
