25) With the progression of cirrhosis, it is hypothesized that the hyperammonemia and the pro-inflammatory potentiation occur via the relative reduction in autochthonous (indigenous) commensal organisms and the increase in microbes such as Enterobacteriaceae and Streptococcaceae, which can produce endotoxin and ammonia through their urease activity, respectively.
The enumeration of mesophilic Streptococcaceae on selective media without antibiotic revealed the presence of 184 [10.
The identified microorganisms were classified according to their morphological, tinctorial and biochemical pattern in species belonging to the families Enterobacteriaceae, Enterococcaceae, Streptococcaceae, Moraxellaceae, Aerococcaceae, Aeromonadaceae, Micrococcaceae, Pasteurellaceae, Pseudomonadaceae, Sphingomonadaceae, Burkholderiaceae and Dermacoccaceae.
At a finer taxonomic resolution, this study also shows a significant increase in potentially dangerous bacteria from the families Prevotellaceae, Enterobacteriaceae, Veillonellaceae, and Streptococcaceae in subjects with alcoholic cirrhosis, compared with subjects with hepatitis B cirrhosis and with control subjects.
Nevertheless, Propionibacteriaceae, Methylobacteriaceae, Lactobacillaceae, and Streptococcaceae which were present in tissues of dogs number 1 and number 2 have also been detected in the previous report on biofilms from wounds of a single dog (Figure 2) [4].
The VITEK MS can identify yeasts such as those from the Candida, Cryptococcus and Malassezia groups, and bacteria from the Staphylococcaceae, Streptococcaceae, Enterobacteriaceae, Pseudomonadaceae, and Bacteroidaceaefamilies, which are associated with skin infections, pneumonia, meningitis, and bloodstream infections.
La mayoria de las bacterias del genero Streptococcus que tienen como habitat la boca, se identifican como pertenecientes a una misma familia Streptococcaceae que se relaciona de manera antigenica, por las proteinas de superficie que poseen, las cuales facilitan una union intima del microorganismo con las glicoproteinas salivares y en consecuencia, con la superficie del diente; esta union hace que el microorganismo tenga una accion de descalcificacion en el esmalte dental, hasta producir su cavitacion, conocida como caries dental.
