Expanding Fungal Diversity, One Cell at a Time

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Reported October 8, 2018, in Nature Microbiology, a team led by U.S. Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute researchers developed a pipeline to generate genomes from single cells of uncultivated fungi. The approach was tested on several uncultivated species representing early diverging fungi.

Researchers Link Gut Bacteria to Heart Transplant Success or Failure

University of Maryland School of Medicine

In a new study, researchers have found that the gut microbiome appears to play a key role in how well the body accepts a transplanted heart. The scientists found a causal relationship between the presence of certain microbes and transplant outcome.

Cancer Hijacks the Microbiome to Glut Itself on Glucose

University of Colorado Cancer Center

A University of Colorado Cancer Center study published today in the journal Cancer Cell shows that leukemia undercuts the ability of normal cells to consume glucose, thus leaving more glucose available to feed its own growth.

Mannose’s Unexpected Effects on the Microbiome and Weight Gain

Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute

Scientists continue to unravel links between body weight and the gut microbiome. Now, researchers from Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute (SBP) report an unexpected finding: mice fed a fatty diet and mannose, a sugar, were protected from weight gain, leaner and more fit—and this effect tracked with changes in the gut microbiome. The study published today in Cell Reports.

Scientists Use Bear Saliva to Rapidly Test for Antibiotics

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

If you’re looking into the mouth of a brown bear, one of the world’s top predators, your chances of survival probably aren’t good. But a team of Rutgers and other scientists has discovered a technology that rapidly assesses potentially lifesaving antibiotics by using bacteria in saliva from an East Siberian brown bear. The technology involves placing a bacterium from a wild animal’s mouth – or other complex source of microbes with potential antibiotic properties – in an oil droplet to see if it inhibits harmful bacteria, such as Staphylococcus aureus, according to a study published online by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
