Cocaine use disorder (CUD), a major health crisis, has traditionally been considered a complication of the CNS; however, it is also closely associated with malnourishment and deteriorating gut health. In light of emerging studies on the potential role of gut microbiota in neurological disorders...

In a recent study, researchers from South-West University “Neofit Rilski”explored the influence of light irradiation on the sediment microbial fuel cell's (SMFCs) electrical outputs. The experiments at both natural and artificial illumination firmly show that current grows up during the photoperiods. The intensity the current increases was shown to depend on the duration of the photoperiod as well as on the wavelength of the monochromatic light source applied...

Enteric bacteria contribute to nitrogen balance in diverse vertebrates because they produce urease, the enzyme needed to liberate nitrogen from urea. Although this system of urea-nitrogen recycling is as yet unknown in Amphibia, a recent study by researchers from Miami University of the wood frog (Rana sylvatica), a terrestrial hibernator that is strongly hyperuremic during winter, documented robust urease activity in bacteria inhabiting the hindgut...

Plastic trash is common in oceans. Terrestrial and marine ecosystem interactions occur in the intertidal zone where accumulation of plastic frequently occurs. However, knowledge of the plastic-associated microbial community (the plastisphere) in the intertidal zone is scant. Scientists recently utilized 16S gene sequencing to profile the bacterial communities attached to microplastic samples from intertidal locations around the Yangtze estuary in China...

Metabolome irregularities are known to induce a variety of disease states in patients and mounting evidence has implicated the microbiome as a key player in properly regulating the flow of metabolites. Not surprisingly, health care professionals have discovered strong correlations between healthy/irregular cellular function and microbial diversity. To enhance our understanding of how bacteria regulate […]

The 16S rRNA gene is a highly conserved component of the transcriptional machinery of all DNA-based life forms and thus is highly suited as a target gene for sequencing DNA in samples containing up to thousands of different species. 16S rRNA gene sequencing is commonly used for identification, classification and quantitation of microbes in complex biological mixtures such as environmental samples like water, soil or air, and microbiome samples such as milk or feces...

Recently, inhalable particulate matter has been reported to carry microorganisms responsible for human allergy and respiratory disease. The unique geographical environment and adverse weather conditions of Urumqi cause double pollution of dust and smog, but research on the microbial content of the atmosphere has not been commenced.
