Transcriptional and Adaptive Responses of Enterococcus Faecium to the Antiseptic Chlorhexidine
Enterococcus faecium and E. faecalis are Gram-positive cocci that naturally colonize the gastrointestinal tracts of humans and animals. However, they are opportunistic pathogens that are particularly associated with central ...
Genomic and Transcriptomic Analysis of Enterococcus Faecalis Responses to Cationic Antimicrobials
Over the last decade, antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections have been occurring at an alarming rate and are an increasing risk to public health. Unfortunately, the pace of discovery and approval of new antibiotics is ...
CRISPR-Cas systems in Enterococcus faecalis and their application in probiotics for the removal of antibiotic resistance
The gut microbiome is composed of diverse bacterial, fungal and archaeal species which function dynamically and reside commensally within a host, proving health benefits such as immune stimulation, nutrient supplementation, ...
Enterococcus Faecalis Genome Defense Systems and Their Impact on Conjugative Antibiotic Resistance Plasmid Transfer
Enterococcus faecalis is a Gram-positive bacterium that naturally colonizes humans and opportunistically causes life-threatening infections. Multidrug-resistant (MDR) E. faecalis strains have emerged that are replete with ...
The Impact of Genome Defense Systems on Antibiotic Resistance Dissemination in the Opportunistic Pathogen Enterococcus faecalis
Since the advent of the modern antibiotic era there has been an increasing number of bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics. The growing antibiotic resistance and the lack in development of new antibiotics poses a ...
