El #calamar hawaiano (Euprymna scolopes) ha atraído una gran atención en los últimos años, y no solo por su adorable apariencia, sino por su relación simbiótica con una pequeña #bacteria muy particular que hace que se encienda como una bombilla. 🦑💡 Image
Los calamares hawaianos tienen un órgano especializado fascinante en su saco de tinta que produce luz todas las noches (tanto para que los calamares puedan evitar a los depredadores como para ayudarlos en la caza de sus propias presas). Image
Y, ¿a quién agradecer esta capacidad de iluminación nocturna? Pues, a un pequeño #microorganismo bacteriano, conocido como Vibrio fischeri.

Great to have our work on bacterial attachment in stent-on-chips published in @micromach_mdpi at…!

Obstructions of the ureter can be caused by a number of factors and affect the physiological flow of urine from kidney to bladder. To overcome this issue, ureteral stents which have side-holes bypassing urine from ureter to stent and viceversa, are clinically implanted. 2/7 Image
However, stents are prone to complications leading to infection. We employed microfluidics to mimic flow dynamics in ureteral stents in different obstruction (obs) conditions: 1) unobstructed 2) obs at proximal side-hole 3) obs in between side-holes 4) obs next to side-hole. 3/7 Image

#Covid19 and other creepy #virusses & #bacteria are rampaging through our hospitals and nursing homes. Mostly killing the elderly and vulnerables.
Do we protect them enough, do we desinfect correctly, do we use PPE 😷 correctly and what are the best practices on this subject?

In biology, a pathogen (Greek: pathos "suffering", "passion") in the oldest and broadest sense, is anything that can produce disease. A pathogen may also be referred to as an infectious agent, or simply a germ.

Sometimes there is truth behind old legends… and some of them involve #AwesomeMicrobes! 🦠 Are you ready for another time travel? ⌛ Hold on tight, here’s our #BactToTheFuture section!
Welcome to Tenessee, US! We are on the night of April the 7th, 1862, in the middle of the American Civil War. The Battle of Shiloh just happened and the battlefield is crowded with wounded soldiers waiting for the doctors to arrive 👨‍⚕️
The soldiers have been lying on the cold mud for almost a day when some of them notice something strange: their wounds are glowing with an eerie blue light.

Life is just action and reaction at it's simplest.
So is there no life as we know it?
Is nothing really alive?
If so, the dead are not really dead.
How about love and fear?
People die from virus like COVID 19.
Respiratory system collapses and oxygen supply reduces resulting in complications that lead to death.
Death occurs to all beings large and small.
Insects die, so does bacteria.
Bacteria being the smallest form of life that I know of
How is bacteria different from a virus.
Bacteria has the ability to reproduce on its own while the virus can not do so.
How is reproduction of a bacteria really different from a viruses?
One is self sufficient and the other not.

Speaking of #bacteria
I am wondering if the stars are living masses of glowing bacteria that connect together in a grid like a web
To me, I have not seen evidence of a dome, even though its pushed on us daily by 95 % of #flatearthers
I see something like a flat ceiling of clouds, stars, solar movement.
Layers of flatness, Earth, water, air, clouds, stars. No curving dome.
It may appear round to us if our Earth is rotating below the ceiling. Or the ceiling could be turning overhead, who knows. We can't go up there so we won't be able to check.
Some people say its projected but due to the energy connections from the stars/planets, I doubt that.

@jenbrea Hey! Yes several people spoke on that topic at the recent #ILADs conference I was at 👉 and remember this case history which found that a woman treated w/ antibiotics to target persistent #Bartonella had substantial improvement in EDS symptoms:…
@jenbrea 2/2 As for #mast cell activation in response to persistent #pathogens...there is extensive literature on how a range of bacterial, viral and fungal pathogens can drive #MCAS-like symptoms 👉 for example:…
@jenbrea 3/3 There is even a receptor common in #connective tissue who’s activity controls mast cell activation in response to bacterial signaling molecules that drive #biofilm formation:…

Unlike the two-parent #inheritance typical to (but not ubiquitous among) #complex organisms, #technology inherits features from n parents - a "vast ancestral #network" more like horizontal gene transfer networks in #bacteria.

Yes 👉 And when #bacteria enter the #blood, they are even more likely to infect + persist inside the cells of the immune system 👉 There, the proteins + #metabolites they create can directly modulate the activity of human genes that regulate #metabolism + immune response etc
Also a growing # of organisms can persist in the #blood itself 👉 This @StanfordMed study found 1000s of never before discovered bacteria + #viruses in the blood of immunocompromised patients (99% of microbes identified were previously unknown to science):…
The team contends these newly discovered microbes 👉 “have potential consequences for human #health. They may prove to be the cause of acute or #chronic diseases that, to date, have unknown etiology”☝️This technology has not yet been used to study blood in conditions like #ME/CFS

Microbes/viruses interact to drive disease 👉 Here, a #bacteriophage (Pf) that infects bacterial pathogen p. aeruginosa (Pa)☝️promoted Pa virulence (in wounds) by triggering maladaptive anti-viral responses in human cells + suppressing bacterial clearance:…
In addition 👉 1. The data suggest that a natural (unmodified) #bacteriophage may be able to produce mRNA within human cells☝️2. Consistent with a pathogenic role for Pf #phage, a vaccine against Pf phage protected against P. aeruginosa wound infections in mice
Simple summary 👉 This marks the first time a #bacteria-infecting #virus, otherwise known as a #bacteriophage...has been observed inducing the immune system to mount an antiviral response and, in doing so, causing it to ignore the bacterial infection:…
