RSC ADVANCES 27/07/20 Multi-omics based characterization of antibiotic response in clinical isogenic isolates of methicillin-susceptible/-resistant Staphylococcus aureus

Introduction Staphylococcus aureus, a Gram-positive bacterial species, is found asymptomatically colonizing approximately 20–30% of the healthy population in the nares, on the skin, and in the gastrointestinal tract.1 However, this species can cause very serious infection once these bacteria are able to penetrate internal tissues and/or blood vessels.2 Currently, especially, global spread of methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) is notorious for complicating the treatment of infection.1,3 Even, MRSA accounts for approximately 50% of S. aureus infection cases and becomes resistant to almost all antibiotics.1 Therefore, there is an urgent need to develop new antibiotic compounds and/or therapeutic strategies, and numerous studies are underway in an effort to control MRSA.3,4 2. Materials and methods 2.1 S. aureus strain, culture condition and oxacillin treatment.

Effect of S. aureus exoproducts on P. aeruginosa in a biofilm slide chamber model New onset P. aeruginosa isolates were collected from 46 patients with cystic fibrosis undergoing standardized Antibiotic Eradication Therapy with inhaled tobramycin.12,13 Thirty-three P. aeruginosa isolates were obtained from patients who underwent successful eradication therapy (eradicated isolates) and 13 isolates obtained from patients who failed eradication therapy (persistent isolates).

NATURE 19/10/17 Staphylococcus aureus interaction with Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilm enhances tobramycin resistance

To assess the effect of S. aureus on P. aeruginosa, we exposed P. aeruginosa isolates to S. aureus filtrates (SaF) (bacteria-free supernatants of S. aureus). Staphylococcus aureus filtrates (SaF) do not affect initial attachment of Pseudomonas aeruginosa to borosilicate slide chambers. a Schematic representation of how SaF biofilm formation was assessed. P. aeruginosa was grown overnight in liquid culture prior to seeding in 8-well slide chambers.

ELIFESCIENCES 02/10/18 An essential Staphylococcus aureus cell division protein directly regulates FtsZ dynamics

Reviewer #1:In this manuscript, the authors analyze the function of the GpsB protein in S. aureus. GpsB and its paralog DivIVA are well-studied in Firmicutes and Actinobacteria. In these species, these two proteins have been shown to be involved in regulation of cell growth, regulation of cell division and/or in chromosome segregation. Here, it is reported that overproduction of GpsB from S. aureus in B. subtilis gives rise to filamentous cells; overproduction of GpsB in S. aureus gives rise to large spherical cells; depletion of GpsB in S. aureus results in inhibition of cell division; a gspB mutation is isolated that does not affect cell shape upon expression in B. subtilis; GpsB localization is determined and found to be dynamic over the cell cycle: and, that GpsB interacts with FtsZ in vitro.Previously, it has been reported that GpsB is essential in S. aureus.

Abstract The success of Staphylococcus aureus, as both a human and animal pathogen, stems from its ability to rapidly adapt to a wide spectrum of environmental conditions.

PLOS 15/03/18 SpdC, a novel virulence factor, controls histidine kinase activity in Staphylococcus aureus

Two-component systems (TCSs) play a crucial role in this process. Here, we describe a novel staphylococcal virulence factor, SpdC, an Abi-domain protein, involved in signal sensing and/or transduction. We have uncovered a functional link between the WalKR essential TCS and the SpdC Abi membrane protein. Expression of spdC is positively regulated by the WalKR system and, in turn, SpdC negatively controls WalKR regulon genes, effectively constituting a negative feedback loop.

MEDICAL PRESS 26/03/18 A new mechanism involved in Staphylococcus aureus virulence and antibiotic resistance

These results open up new avenues for understanding the control of S. aureus virulence mechanisms. This work was recently published in the journal PLoS Pathogens. Staphylococcus aureus is part of the natural skin flora, preferentially colonizing external mucosa in 30 to 50 percent of the population, healthy carriers who develop no symptoms. But it is also a major human pathogen, causing diseases ranging from skin lesions (boils, impetigo, etc.) to endocarditis, acute pneumonia, osteomyelitis or sepsis.

INRA 05/10/16 Staphylocoque doré : décryptage d’une stratégie de résistance à certains antimicrobiens

Il appartient à une famille de composés antimicrobiens qui inhibent la voie de biosynthèse des acides gras (dénommée FASII pour Fatty Acid Synthesis), éléments vitaux pour les bactéries. Cette molécule étant soupçonnée d’être un perturbateur endocrinien, la Commission européenne a, en 2016, retiré le triclosan de la liste des composés approuvés comme additifs dans des produits de Type 1 (produits d’hygiène)2. Les autorités sanitaires américaines (Food and Drug administration) ont également limité son utilisation en 2016 dans la fabrication des savons antibactériens3. Cependant, ce type de molécules constitue toujours une piste privilégiée pour le développement de nouveaux antibactériens. FRONTIERS IN MICROBIOLOGY 18/10/16 Systematic Review on Global Epidemiology of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus pseudintermedius: Inference of Population Structure from Multilocus Sequence Typing Data.

Introduction Staphylococcus pseudintermedius is a bacterial commensal of the skin and mucosae of dogs and also the most prevalent cause of canine bacterial infections (Bannoehr and Guardabassi, 2012). Although primarily adapted to the canine host, this coagulase-positive staphylococcal species may infect other pet animals, mainly cats (Kadlec et al., 2010), and humans (Van Hoovels et al., 2006). Multilocus sequence typing (MLST) has proven to be an invaluable DNA sequence-based technique for analysis of population structure and long-term epidemiological trends at a global level (Spratt and Maiden, 1999). A first MLST scheme based on five loci was initially proposed in 2007 to provide insight into the overall population genetic structure of the Staphylococcus intermedius Group (SIG), which includes S. intermedius and S. delphini in addition to S. pseudintermedius (Bannoehr et al., 2007).

EMA 26/09/12 Researchers discover link between use of antibiotics and MRSA. Researchers discover link between use of antibiotics and MRSA [Date: 2012-09-26] Researchers tracking a penicillin-type resistant bacterium that leads to infection in some hospital patients have discovered that occurrence falls significantly when prescriptions of a common antibiotic of the fluoroquinolone family also fall. The research team, was led by St George's, University of London, United Kingdom, has published its results in the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy.

The bacteria tracked by the researchers was methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA, and is also known as multidrug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus as it has developed resistance to beta-lactam antibiotics. This includes antibiotics in the penicillin family which are typically used in hospitals to prevent and treat infection. From 1999 to 2009, the researchers tracked MRSA infection at St George's Hospital. CORDIS 16/06/11 Des scientifiques découvrent des gènes contre le système de défense du SARM.

The dissemination among Staphylococcus aureus of the Staphylococcal Chromosome Cassette mec (SCCmec) which confers multiresistance. New tool helps trace MRSA's local, global spread. Jan 21, 2010 (CIDRAP News) – A multi-national team of researchers has applied a new genomic tool to a 50-year-old bacterial foe, using minute mutations to track the spread of drug-resistant staph both across continents and within a single hospital. On a global scale, their sleuthing tracked the movement of one clone of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) back and forth across the planet, pinpointing when individual cases transported infections across national borders to spark new outbreaks.

Separately, their method demonstrated that what appeared to be a hospital epidemic of MRSA was not a single outbreak, but rather a mixed event of patient-to-patient transmission of one strain that was accompanied by multiple importations from outside the hospital of similar but unrelated strains. The work was published today in Science. Harris SR, Feil EJ, Holden MTG, et al. Evolution of MRSA during hospital transmission and intercontinental spread.
