A study of the interaction between Pseudomonas aeruginosa alginate and bronchial mucins Author: Smedley, Y. ISNI: Awarding Body: Brighton Polytechnic Current. Purified Pseudomonas aeruginosa alginate stimulated mucin and lysozyme secretion in a dose-dependent fashion (mucin = +%: P = ; lysozyme = +20%: P = at microg/mL).
Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus are versatile bacterial pathogens and common etiological agents in polymicrobial infections. Microbial communities containing both of these pathogens are shaped by interactions ranging from parasitic to mutualistic, with the net impact of these interactions Cited by: P.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic pathogen that causes chronic lung infections in people suffering from cystic fibrosis (CF). In CF airways, P. aeruginosa forms surface-associated.

Introduction. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an autosomal recessive disorder affecting 1 in live births in the UK .This life-limiting condition (median predicted survival age ˜47 years)  is the result of mutations in the CF transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene, characterized by impaired epithelial chloride transport, leading to an abnormally viscous mucous and poor lung Author: Manon F.

Recent studies performed by Hoiby and colleagues show that treatment with azithromycin, which interferes with quorum sensing signaling, as well as alginate production, in vitro helps clear P.

To determine whether mucins affect the integrity of established biofilms, P. aeruginosa cells were grown in a previously characterized flow-cell system.
