Bacillus cereus

[bə‚sil·əs ′sir·ē·əs]
(microbiology)
A spore-forming bacterium that often survives cooking and grows to large numbers in improperly refrigerated foods; it produces both a diarrheal toxin and an emetic toxin in the gastrointestinal tract following its ingestion via contaminated meats, dried foods, and rice.

The MIC and MBC values stem and root extracts of Citrus sinensis against Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumonia, Enterococcus faecalis and Bacillus cereus are given in Table-2.
Stool cultures obtained the following day revealed a preponderance of Bacillus cereus with the absence of usual enteric flora.
Bacterial isolates that were positive for alkB 1 gene were D4 yn-Brevibacillus borstelensis, B1,1-Pseudomonas putida, and A5,a1- Bacillus cereus. Alkane biodegradation is initiated through terminal oxidation to the corresponding primary alcohol, which is further oxidized by dehydrogenases to fatty acids which can enter the TCA cycle [39].
coli and Bacillus cereus which were 85, 91, 95, and 93% fewer than Staph.
Analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequences of bacterial isolates revealed that most abundant sequence types were, Bacillus cereus, Bacillus thuringiensis and Bacillus spp.
The goal of this study was to test for cross-immunity between bacteria and viruses by scoring the incidence of the vertically transmitted rhabdovirus Sigma (DMelSV) infection in progeny of DMelSV-infected females and males from lines subjected to three selection regimes related to resistance to the Gram-positive bacterium, Bacillus cereus. Cross-immunity among viruses has been previously demonstrated for flies selected for survival following infection with DCV [1].
