Dangerous bacteria survive and spread diseases in which two places of home and hospital?
Norwich: Dangerous bacteria can spread diseases by surviving on kitchens or hospital counters, according to a new study from the UK.
According to a study published in the research journal PLOS Biology, dangerous bacteria can spread diseases by maintaining their presence on the surface of a man-made space such as kitchens or hospital counters.
Researchers at the John Innes Center, an independent research institute for plant and microbiology, have identified the reasons why these dangerous bacteria not only survive but also have the potential to spread disease.
The research focused on mechanisms that enable opportunistic human pathogens (Pseudomonas aeruginosa) to survive at different locations, and could lead to new ways to target harmful bacteria.
Researchers say that these pathogenic bacteria tolerate all kinds of pressures in different environments, with a mechanism of sugar molecule (tree helium) that is associated with different types of external pressures, especially osmotic shock (ie cells). Sudden changes in the amount of salt around.
In order to find out how bacteria withstand external stress, the researchers analyzed how P. aeruginosa metabolizes sugar molecules (ie, tree halos).
Experiments have shown that the obstruction of the phylogenetic or glycogen pathways significantly reduces the ability of P. aeruginosa to survive on man-made surfaces.
