Enterobacter aerogenes


Also found in: Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

En·ter·o·bac·ter aer·o·genes

a bacterial species found in water, soil, sewage, dairy products, and the feces of humans and other animals. Organisms previously identified as motile strains of Aerobacter aerogenes are now placed in this species.
Synonym(s): Klebsiella mobilis

(en'tĕr-ō-bak'tĕr ār-oj'ĕ-nēz)
A bacterial species often recovered from wounds, urine, blood, and spinal fluid of hospitalized patients.

Enterobacter aerogenes

A species that occurs normally in the intestines of humans and other animals and is found in decayed matter, on grains, and in plants. It causes opportunistic infections of the urinary tract and of the intestine when antibiotic therapy diminishes other microorganisms.

Antimicrobial activity of almond oil itself did not show any antibacterial activity while the extracted fatty acids of almond oil showed intermediate inhibition against microbial activity raised due to gram-positive (Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus subtilis) and Gram negative bacteria (Escherichia coli, Salmonella enterica and Enterobacter aerogenes).
The highest prevalence rate of AmpC production was detected among Acinetobacter baumannii 7(87.5%), followed by Klebsiella pneumoniae, Enterobacter aerogenes, and Escherichia coli respectively.
GNR isolates (n=33) were Escherichia coli (n=18), Klebsiella pneumoniae (n=6), Enterobacter cloacae (n=2), Klebsiella oxytoca (n=2), Citrobacter braakii (n=2), Enterobacter agglomerans (n=2) and Enterobacter aerogenes (n=1).
The studied oil demonstrated moderate inhibitory effect against Gram negative bacteria (Enterobacter aerogenes, Escherichia coli, Salmonella enterica, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa) with IZ (0.0-22.2 mm).

The twenty strains of Gram-negative bacteria tested in this study were MDR isolates (laboratory collection) and reference strains (American Type Culture Collection) of Escherichia coli (ATCC8739, AG100A, AG100ATet, AG102, MC4100, and W3110), Enterobacter aerogenes (ATCC13048, CM64, EA27, EA289, and EA294), Klebsiella pneumoniae (ATCC11296, KP55, KP63, and K24), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA01 and PA124), and Providencia stuartii (NEA16, PS2636, and PS299645).

Thus, clinical strains of Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia Coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus species, Citrobacter freundii, Citrobacter Koseri, Enterobacter cloacae, Klebsiella oxytoca, Enterobacter aerogenes, and Yersinia enterocolitica were isolated from the collected clinical samples.
