    Measurement of Intracellular cAMP Levels Using the Cyclic Nucleotide XP Enzymatic Immunoassay Kit in Bacteria
    Authors:  Sarah K Giles, Uwe H Stroeher and Melissa H Brown, date: 04/20/2016, view: 7023, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Cyclic AMP (cAMP) is a ubiquitous secondary signaling molecule, commonly associated with many bacterial processes, including the regulation of virulence factors, such as biofilms, pellicles and motility (Wolfgang, 2003). The quantity of available cAMP is controlled by the interplay between the synthesis of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) to cAMP by ...
    Induction of Tigecycline Resistance in Acinetobacter baumannii
    Authors:  Ming-Feng Lin, Yun-You Lin and Chung-Yu Lan, date: 12/05/2014, view: 5614, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Multidrug resistance Acinetobacter baumannii (A. baumannii) (MDRAB) has emerged as a serious threat in hospitals in recent years. Currently, there are few antibiotics, including tigecycline, available to treat infections caused by MDRAB effectively. Both tigecycline-resistant and tigecycline-susceptible isogenic strains of MDRAB ...
    Minimal Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) Assay for Acinetobacter baumannii
    Authors:  Ming-Feng Lin, Yun-You Lin and Chung-Yu Lan, date: 12/05/2014, view: 29349, Q&A: 3
    [Abstract] Minimal inhibition concentration (MIC) is the lowest concentration of an antimicrobial agent that can inhibit the visible growth of a microorganism after overnight incubation. MIC determination is used as not only a diagnostic tool in treating bacterial infections for clinicians but also a research method in evaluating the efficacy of an ...
