Disease relevance of Micrococcaceae


High impact information on Micrococcaceae

  • Production of porphobilinogen correlated 100% with membership in the family Micrococcaceae [3].
  • It is also suggested that when working with the Staph-Ident strip, additional testing such as furazolidone susceptibility or oxidase activity should be performed to provide increased accuracy in the differentiation and characterization of members of the family Micrococcaceae [4].
  • Clinical isolates of Micrococcaceae were tested in microtiter plates containing phenol red-novobiocin-turanose broth and phenol red-arabinose broth [5].
  • A total of 520 clinical and environmental isolates of the family Micrococcaceae that fermented glucose anaerobically were tested for their ability to produce coagulase, thermostable nuclease, and deoxyribonuclease [6].
  • Studies on the effect of mecillinam upon Micrococcaceae and faecal streptococci under conditions simulating urinary tract infection [7].

Chemical compound and disease context of Micrococcaceae

  • In contrast, changes in numbers of Micrococcaceae were slight and, after 12 weeks, erythromycin-resistant strains were predominant in both treatment groups [8].
  • Lactic acid bacteria and Micrococcaceae were not greatly affected by the added curing salt [9].
  • Novobiocin-resistant staphylococci matching Staphylococcus saprophyticus (mainly) and S. xylosus dominated Micrococcaceae populations, ranged between 10(5) and 10(6) cfu g(-1) [10].
  • The disk-diffusion method confirmed resistance to erythromycin and/or spiramycin in 86 and 65% of the coryneform bacteria and Micrococcaceae tested, respectively [11].
  • Sausages fermented with starters had lower amounts of tyramine than naturally fermented sausages (control), but differences in the Micrococcaceae counts were only significant during the first week of the ripening process [12].

Anatomical context of Micrococcaceae

  • Although the fusidic acid reduced the micrococcaceae count by 1 log cycle, inferring adequate compliance, there was no reduction in the counts of P. acnes, surface free fatty acids or sebum excretion rate [13].
