Shewanella putrefaciens


Also found in: Wikipedia.

Shewanella putrefaciens

A gram-negative facultative anaerobic bacterium primarily isolated from sea water, which reduces iron and manganese and produces trimethylene—the chemical responsible the stench of rotting fish; it is not part of normal human flora.
 
Clinical findings
Shewanella putrefaciens is a rare human pathogen and may be found in mixed cultures from the respiratory tract, urine, faeces and pleural fluid; it has been implicated in cellulitis, otitis media, septicaemia.

(1987), en el cual se describe la sintesis de nanoparticulas de magnetita por parte de una cepa de Shewanella putrefaciens. Este microorganismo reductor de hierro fue capaz de producir grandes cantidades de magnetita granulada ultra fina, observandose que las nanoparticulas biosintetizadas estaban en un rango de medida de entre 10 a 50 nm.
In addition, single-effect of NaN[O.sub.2] and NaCl was identified in several Gram-negative bacteria related to meat (Salmonella Typhimurium, Escherichia coli, Serratia grimesii, and Shewanella putrefaciens), but multi-effect was observed in only S.
reported that the Fe dissimilatory reduction (DIR) promoted by Geobacter sulfurreducens and Shewanella putrefaciens strains caused Fe isotopic fractionation of approximately 2.2[per thousand], with final Fe(II) species enriched in light isotopes [76], which demonstrated that the Fe isotope composition of Fe[(II).sub.aq] is largely controlled by isotopic exchange with a reactive Fe(III) pool that lies in the outer layers of the ferric oxide substrate.
typhimurium, and Shewanella putrefaciens were inhibited by some commercial essential oils including those of Ocimum basilicum, Petroselinum sativum, and Rosmarinus officinalis [22].
