Perhaps the mucus that includes slippery fish is the new effective antibiotic product against multi-insular obstacles such as Staphylococcus aureus, which causes serious diseases, researchers say t the present presentation.
The slow material protects fish from bacteria, fungi and viruses in the water by capturing microorganisms before they can rubbish between the fish material and, according to the survey, displayed at the annual meeting of the American Chemical Society, also an affiliation of polysaccharides (charcoal which combines organic structures) and peptides (bio-cycles that emit amino acids) with recognized antibacterial features.
A team of researchers from the universities of Oregon and California in the USA, led by Sandra Loesgen, produced 47 different species of bacteria from a sample of fish mucus taken from deep waters and seawater, five of which formed Staphylococcus aureus buildings. , which is responsible for many hospital diseases, and three have been shown as clues to the fungus 'Candida albicans', which cause diseases such as candidiasis.
Sandra Loesgen, who was told in a American Chemical Society report, said that a bacterium found in mucus of a snake family has shown an activity in the vicinity of spinal cancer cells and reaffirms the possibility of not being diagnosed. to account for natural microorganisms and materials. In marine animals, the discovery of the importance of the protective and protective bacteria present in the human body, especially in the microwaves; gastrointestinal.
In today's study, researchers investigated juvenile fish mucus caught on southern coast of California, as they have a more developed adult protection system and are covered by a more rapid return. house of the goods.
The team of researchers has aimed to explore active materials that could be a source of new antibiotics to combat human pathology, but, said Sandra Loesgen, also investigating other applications for possible detection, such as reducing usage t general antibiotics in the aquaculture industry and in the creation of functional materials particularly aimed at panels associated with particular fish species.
However, the researchers note that there is still a lot of basic work to be done, such as identifying the bacteria and organic organisms that are naturally part of a series of protective fish and those which t perhaps part of the environment and is present in fish, but not part of natural defensive equipment.
