Disease relevance of Bacteroidaceae


High impact information on Bacteroidaceae

  • Composition of peptidoglycans in Bacteroidaceae: determination and distribution of lanthionine [4].
  • Unlike results with most other prokaryotes, but similar to results with other members of the family Bacteroidaceae, NADPH-utilizing specific activity was greatest in all species following ammonia-limited growth [5].
  • Antibodies that react with the polysaccharide part of LPSs isolated from members of the Bacteroidaceae are present in healthy human serum [6].
  • The susceptibility of 220 fresh clinical isolates of Bacteroidaceae, clostridia and propionibacteria to imipenem, ceftazidime, ciprofloxacin and four further substances were established by agar dilution tests [7].
  • To our knowledge, this is the first paper to report that isolates of the family Bacteroidaceae and the genus Streptococcus produce chitinase and/or beta-GlcNAcase [8].
