Micrococcus Luteus


Presentation

  • Micrococcus luteus was repeatedly isolated in blood cultures during a prolonged feverish syndrome in a patient who presented with multiple hepatic abscesses as well.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We are presenting a new case of meningitis due to the Micrococcus luteus species. This germ was isolated twice in eight days from the CSF of a 57-year old woman.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A review of the literature regarding the pathogenicity of this organism and, in particular, its occurrence as a cause of pneumonia is presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A three-step model for the incision step of excision repair of cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers is presented.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The present method is more convenient and reproducible than the conventional lysozyme assay with bacterial cells. Application of the system to the determination of lysozyme in human serum is described.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Weakness
  • From these observations, we conclude that the selective use of synonymous codons in M. luteus may be largely determined by GC-biased mutation pressure and that in the highly expressed genes tRNAs would act as a weak selection pressure in some family boxes[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Plethora
  • The plethora of IS elements in M. luteus may be responsible, at least in part, for the intraspecies heterogeneity that has been described previously ( 90, 138 ).[doi.org]

Agitation
  • M. luteus and C. glutamicum strains were grown at 30 C and 225-rpm agitation for 24 h, and E. coli strains for cloning purposes were grown at 37 C and 225-rpm agitation overnight.[doi.org]
Tremor
  • On the 30 th day of hospitalization our patient again had a high fever, up to 39 C with fever tremors, and showed dysarthria lasting about three hours. A second Transthoracic echocardiography was performed showing no differentiation.[jmedicalcasereports.biomedcentral.com]

Treatment

  • The treatment of the labeled substrate with lysozyme resulted in the release of soluble blue products which can be easily measured spectrophotometrically at 600 nm.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • However, the most promising antibiotic regimen proposed for treatment of Micrococcus luteus seems to be a combination of vancomycin, amikacin, and rifampicin.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Our patient was immunosuppressed due to methotraxate treatment and a history of breast cancer.[jmedicalcasereports.biomedcentral.com]
  • Formalin ethyl alcohol mixture baths and oral applications of enrofloxacin were successfully used for the treatment of naturally infected fish in 1996.[medwelljournals.com]
  • Genetics March 1, 1975 vol. 79 no. 3 361-376 ABSTRACT Histidine auxotrophs of Micrococcus luteus strain ATCC 27141 were induced by treatment of the parent strain with N-methyl-N′-nitro-N-nitro-soguanidine.[genetics.org]

Prognosis

  • Abstract A rare case of prosthetic valve endocarditis caused by Micrococcus luteus is described and compared with the few cases reported in the literature, as well as the clinical features, microbiological profile, therapy, and prognosis of common prosthetic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • Etiologic importance of coagulase-negative Micrococcaceae isolated from blood cultures. Acta Pathol Microbiol Immunol Scand B 1985;93:1-6. 2. Adang RP, Schouten HC, van Tiel FH, Blijham GH.[journals.lww.com]
  • A black leafspot disease of unknown etiology causes considerable leaf fall, reduces fruit set, and ultimately leads to fruit loss in the mango production regions in India.[apsjournals.apsnet.org]

Epidemiology

  • These methods can also be applied in typing of micrococci for epidemiologic purposes. Acknowledgments. This work was supported by a grant from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, Bonn, Germany. We thank Richard A.[journals.lww.com]
  • While some studies have focused on the function of Rpf protein from the perspective of medicine and epidemiology (Dwivedi and Jaykus 2011 ; Hett and Rubin 2008 ), little has been done to investigate the capability of proteins from M. luteus culture supernatant[springerplus.springeropen.com]

Prevention

  • The presence of calcium in the solution was essential for enzyme activity and to prevent autolysis. Optimal activity occurred between pH 9.0 and 9.5, with 60% maximal activity from pH 6.5 to 11.0.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Keep tubes sealed with caps or plugs to prevent cross-contamination and dehydration. Bacterial cultures should be sub-cultured to fresh medium every two to three weeks to maintain active growth.[flinnsci.com]
