Novel insights into the potential role of ion transport in sensory perception in Acanthamoeba
(Springer Nature, 2019)
Background: Acanthamoeba is well known to produce a blinding keratitis and serious brain infection known as encephalitis. Effective treatment is problematic, and can continue up to a year, and even then, recurrence can ...
Gut Bacteria of Water Monitor Lizard (Varanus salvator) Are a Potential Source of Antibacterial Compound(s)
For the past few decades, there has been limited progress in the development of novel antibacterials. Previously, we postulated that the gut microbiota of animals residing in polluted environments are a forthcoming supply ...
Gut bacteria of Cuora amboinensis (turtle) produce broad-spectrum antibacterial molecules
(Nature Research, 2019)
Antimicrobial resistance is a major threat to human health, hence there is an urgent need to discover antibacterial molecule(s). Previously, we hypothesized that microbial gut flora of animals are a potential source of ...
Effects of Shape and Size of Cobalt Phosphate Nanoparticles against Acanthamoeba castellanii
T4 genotype Acanthamoeba are opportunistic pathogens that cause two types of infections, including vision-threatening Acanthamoeba keratitis (AK) and a fatal brain infection known as granulomatous amoebic encephalitis ...
