  • Stable microbial communities in the sponge Crambe crambe from inside and
           outside a polluted Mediterranean harbor
    • Authors: Gantt SE; López-Legentil S, Erwin PM.
      Abstract: Marine sponges have been shown to harbor diverse microbial symbiont communities that play key roles in host functioning, yet little is known about how anthropogenic disturbances impact sponge–microbe interactions. The Mediterranean sponge Crambe crambe is known to accumulate heavy metals in polluted harbors. In this study, we investigated whether the microbiome of C. crambe differed between sponges inhabiting a polluted harbor in Blanes (Spain) and a nearby (<1 km) natural environment. Triplicate sponge and ambient seawater samples were collected from each site and the microbial composition of each sample was determined by 16S rRNA gene sequence analysis (Illumina Hi-Seq platform). No significant differences in the diversity or structure of microbial communities in C. crambe were detected between habitats, while a significant difference in community structure was observed in ambient seawater inside and outside of the polluted harbor. The microbiome of C. crambe was clearly differentiated from free-living seawater microbes and dominated by Proteobacteria, specifically a single betaproteobacterium that accounted for >86% of all sequence reads. These results indicate that sponge microbiomes exhibit greater stability and pollution tolerance than their free-living microbial counterparts, potentially mitigating the effects of pollutants on coastal marine communities.

  • Anti- Helicobacter pylori activity of non-living, heat-killed form of
           lactobacilli including Lactobacillus johnsonii No.1088
    • Authors: Aiba Y; Ishikawa H, Tokunaga M, et al.
      Abstract: Some strains of lactic acid bacteria are reported to inhibit the growth of Helicobacter pylori and proposed to be useful to support so-called triple therapy for H. pylori. Although most strains must be alive to exert their anti-H. pylori activity, some lactobacilli strains are effective even when dead. One possible underlying mechanism of such an activity of non-living lactobacilli is reportedly co-aggregation with H. pylori. In this study, we found that a non-living heat-killed form of Lactobacillus johnsonii No.1088 (HK-LJ88) and also that of some other lactobacilli inhibited the growth of H. pylori in vitro. Furthermore, the number of H. pylori in the infected stomach of germ-free mice was significantly decreased by the repeated oral administration of HK-LJ88. Observation by scanning electron microscopy revealed that no co-aggregation had occurred between H. pylori and HK-LJ88; instead, deformations of H. pylori (e.g. disappearance of spiral, bending of cell body, coccoid formation, degradations, etc.) appeared after incubation for 24 h with HK-LJ88. These results suggest that HK-LJ88 inhibited H. pylori activity probably not by co-aggregation but by some unknown mechanism involving HK-LJ88's cell surface molecules and that even non-living lactobacilli are possibly useful to support H. pylori eradication therapy.

  • Phylogenetic distribution of tir-cytoskeleton coupling protein ( tccP and
           tccP2 ) genes in atypical enteropathogenic Escherichia coli
    • Authors: Martins FH; Nepomuceno R, Piazza RF, et al.
      Abstract: Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (EPEC) strains employ the type III secretion system (T3SS) effector Tir to induce actin cytoskeletal rearrangements. While some EPEC require tyrosine phosphorylation (Y-P) of Tir to trigger actin assembling, certain strains whose Tir is not tyrosine phosphorylated utilize the T3SS effector Tir-cytoskeleton coupling protein (TccP/TccP2) for efficient actin polymerization. The presence of tccP/tccP2 in typical EPEC belonging to distinct evolutionary lineages is well established but, in contrast, little is known about the distribution of these genes in atypical EPEC (aEPEC) showing distinct phylogenetic background. In this study, we screened 72 pathogenic aEPEC for the presence of tccP/tccP2 genes, and further characterized positive strains regarding tir type, phylogroups and production of TccP/TccP2. The tccP and/or tccP2 genes were detected in 45.8% of the strains, with a predominance of tccP2 allele. Most of these strains carried tirY-P, suggesting that can trigger actin polymerization using both Tir tyrosine phosphorylation and TccP/TccP2 pathways. aEPEC strains carrying tccP or tccP2 were significantly associated to phylogroups E and B1, respectively. We also observed a strain-to-strain variation regarding TccP/TccP2 production. Our results demonstrate a wide distribution of tccP/tccP2 genes among pathogenic aEPEC strains, as well associations between specific alleles and phylogenetic backgrounds.

  • Using self-assessment to develop metacognition and self-regulated learners
    • Authors: Siegesmund A.
      Abstract: Student success is too often challenged by a lack of metacognition and ability to self-regulate learning. This commentary argues that the use of self-assessment to increase student metacognition positively impacts student learning and self-regulation. In addition, several strategies for incorporating self-assessment will be presented.

  • Effect of halotolerant rhizobacteria isolated from halophytes on the
           growth of sugar beet ( Beta vulgaris L.) under salt stress
    • Authors: Zhou N; Zhao S, Tian C.
      Abstract: Utilization of rhizobacteria that have associated with plant roots in harsh environments could be a feasible strategy to deal with limits to agricultural production caused by soil salinity. Halophytes occur naturally in high-salt environments, and their roots may be associated with promising microbial candidates for promoting growth and salt tolerance in crops. This study aimed to isolate efficient halotolerant plant-growth-promoting rhizobacterial strains from halophytes and evaluate their activity and effects on sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L.) growth under salinity stress. A total of 23 isolates were initially screened for their ability to secrete 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate deaminase (ACD) as well as other plant-growth-promoting characteristics and subsequently identified by sequencing the 16S rRNA gene. Three isolates, identified as Micrococcus yunnanensis, Planococcus rifietoensis and Variovorax paradoxus, enhanced salt stress tolerance remarkably in sugar beet, resulting in greater seed germination and plant biomass, higher photosynthetic capacity and lower stress-induced ethylene production at different NaCl concentrations (50–125 mM). These results demonstrate that salinity-adapted, ACD-producing bacteria isolated from halophytes could promote sugar beet growth under saline stress conditions.
