Phenotypic and genetic characterization of antimicrobial resistance in Salmonella isolates from different sources in Turkey
Acar, Sinem; Soyer, Yeşim; Ögel, Zümrüt Begüm; Department of Food Engineering (2015)
Salmonella enterica subsp. enteric serovars are responsible for causing the highest number of bacterial foodborne infections in the world. Antimicrobial resistance (AR) and virulence of Salmonella isolates play a critical role in systemic infections and they impose great concern to human health in severe salmonellosis cases when multidrug resistance interferes with treatment. Also, antimicrobial resistance genes might be shared with closely related human pathogens. Therefore, antimicrobial susceptibility mo...

192 Food samples (commonly consumed 8 food types), 355 animal samples (animal feces of bovine, ovine, goat and chicken) and 50 samples from clinical human cases in Sanliurfa city, Turkey in a year were collected to determine the Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica mosaic in Turkey. 161 Salmonella isolates represented 17 serotypes, 20 sequence types (STs) and 44 PFGE patterns (PTs). 3 serotypes, S. Enteritidis, S. Typhimurium and S. Kentucky, were recovered from three different hosts. The highest discriminat...
Phenotypic rescue of a Bacilysin-silenced strain of Bacillus Subtilis with Bacilysin supplementation
Ertekin, Ozan; Özcengiz, Gülay; Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics (2020-9)
Bacillus subtilis, the model organism for the gram positive bacteria, is distinguished for its secondary metabolite synthesis. Remarkably, most of these metabolites are small peptides which are generally synthesized non-ribosomally with multifunctional enzyme complexes. Bacilysin, a dipeptide composed of L-alanine and L-anticapsin, is the smallest peptide antibiotic which is produced by several enzymatical steps, however, its biosynthesis does not fully fit the general mechanisms of NRPSs. This small molecu...
Phenotypical characterization of microRNA-106B overexpression in MCF10A breast cell line
Saygılı, Cansaran; Erson Bensan, Ayşe Elif; Department of Biology (2013)
MicroRNAs are small non-coding RNAs which regulate gene expression by binding to 3’UTR of their target mRNAs. Deregulated expression of microRNAs is detected in many pathologies including different types of cancers. miR-106b, is a member of miR-106b-25 cluster and overexpressed in many cancers including breast cancer. Based on miR-106b overexpression, we hypothesized that miR-106b may be an oncogene candidate. To explore miR-106b related phenotypes, we used an already miR-106b transfected model cell line sy...

Sixty Streptococcus thermophilus and 111 Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus isolates from traditionally produced Turkish yogurts were biochemically identified and examined for their technologically important features. Acidification profiles of the isolates were examined. Isolates with acidification rates comparable to those of commercial isolates were also tested for final pHs and acetaldehyde production after 24-h incubation. Selected isolates were also examined for their bacteriophage resistance ...
