AB  - Cadmium (Cd) ranks seventh on the list of most significant potential threats to human health based on its suspected toxicity and the possibility of exposure to it. It has been reported that some bacterial exopolysaccharides (EPSs) have the ability to bind heavy metal ions. We therefore investigated the capacity of eight EPS-producing lactobacilli to adsorb Cd in the present study, and Lactiplantibacillus plantarum BGAN8 was chosen as the best candidate. In addition, we demonstrate that an EPS derived from BGAN8 (EPS-AN8) exhibits a high Cd-binding capacity and prevents Cd-mediated toxicity in intestinal epithelial Caco-2 cells. Simultaneous use of EPS-AN8 with Cd treatment prevents inflammation, disruption of tight-junction proteins, and oxidative stress. Our results indicate that the EPS in question has a strong potential to be used as a postbiotic in combatting the adverse effects of Cd. Moreover, we show that higher concentrations of EPS-AN8 can alleviate Cd-induced cell damage.

AB  - An increasing lack of available therapeutic options against Acinetobacter baumannii urged researchers to seek alternative ways to fight this extremely resistant nosocomial pathogen. Targeting its virulence appears to be a promising strategy, as it offers considerably reduced selection of resistant mutants. In this study, we tested antibiofilm potential of four synthetic chalcone derivatives against A. baumannii. Compound that showed the greatest activity was selected for further evaluation of its antivirulence properties. Real‐time PCR was used to evaluate mRNA expression of biofilm‐associated virulence factor genes (ompA, bap, abaI) in treated A. baumannii strains. Also, we examined virulence properties related to the expression of these genes, such as fibronectin‐ and collagen‐mediated adhesion, surface motility, and quorum‐sensing activity. The results revealed that the expression of all tested genes is downregulated together with the reduction of adhesion and motility. The conclusion is that 2′‐hydroxy‐2‐methoxychalcone exhibits antivirulence activity against A. baumannii by inhibiting the expression of ompA and bap genes, which is reflected in reduced biofilm formation, adhesion, and surface motility.

AB  - Acinetobacter baumannii je globalno rasprostranjen nozokomijalni patogen koji se odlikuje izuzetnom sposobnošću ekstremno brzog sticanja rezistencije na antibiotike, kao i adaptacije na preživljavanje u suvim uslovima bolničke sredine [1]. Zbog velike zastupljenosti rezistentnih sojeva protiv kojih ne postoji delotvorna terapija, Svetska zdravstvena organizacija (WHO, 2017) i Centri za kontrolu i prevenciju bolesti (CDC, 2019), označili su A. baumannii kao patogen od kritične važnosti za otkriće novih antimikrobnih agenasa ili novih terapijskih strategija [2]. Targetiranje virulencije je oblik alternativnog terapijskog pristupa koji pruža mogućnost prevencije teže kliničke slike kod inficiranih pacijenata posredstvom inhibicije ekspresije ključnih faktora virulencije, uz istovremenu redukovanu selekciju rezistentnih mutanata [3].Rezultati i Diskusija: Od četiri različito supstituisana hidroksihalkona, sintetisanih u postupku bazno-katalizovane Claisen-Schmidt kondenzacije, selektiran je metkosi-supstituisani derivat kao najpotentniji inhibitor produkcije biofilma kod A. baumannii. Primenom Real-Time kvantitativne PCR metode sa reverznom transkriptazom ispitan je uticaj subinhibitornih koncentracija selektiranog jedinjenja (70, 35 i 10 μg/mL) na ekspresiju gena faktora virulencije povezanih sa produkcijom biofilma kod A. baumannii: ompA, bap i abaI.

AB  - Over the last two decades, Acinetobacter baumannii has emerged as one of the most troublesome pathogens, rapidly acquiring resistance to virtually all available antibiotics. This has urged researchers to seek alternative ways to fight this pathogen. Targeting its virulence appears to be a promising strategy, as it offers considerably reduced selection of resistant mutants. In this study, we tested antibiofilm activity of four synthetic chalcone derivatives against A. baumannii. Compound that showed the greatest activity was selected for further evaluation of its antivirulence properties. We used quantitative Real-Time PCR to evaluate mRNA expression of virulence-associated genes (ompA, bap, abaI) in extensively drug-resistant (XDR) A. baumannii wound isolate and A. baumannii ATCC 19606 strain, treated with selected compound. Also, we tested biofilm production, fibronectin- and collagen-mediated adhesion, surface motility and quorum-sensing activity of treated strains. The results revealed downregulation of the expression of all tested virulence genes together with the reduction of biofilm production, adhesion and motility. The most notable finding is significant reduction of ompA gene expression, whose encoded protein product is associated with numerous virulence traits of A. baumannii. Therefore, we conclude that selected methoxy-substituted hydroxychalcone exhibits antivirulence activity against A. baumannii by inhibiting the expression of the bacterial adhesins, most importantly OmpA, which is reflected in reduced biofilm formation, adhesion and surface motility.

AB  - The aim of this study was to test the potential of high molecular weight exopolysaccharide (EPS) produced by the putative probiotic strain Lactobacillus paraplantarum BGCG11 (EPS CG11) to alleviate inflammatory pain in Wistar rats. The EPS CG11 was isolated from bacterial surface and was subjected to Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and thermal analysis. FTIR spectra confirmed the polysaccharide structure of isolated sample, while the thermal methods revealed good thermal properties of the polymer. The antihyperalgesic and antiedematous effects of the EPS CG11 were examined in the rat model of inflammation induced by carrageenan injection in hind paw. The results showed that the intraperitoneal administration of EPS CG11 produced a significant decrease in pain sensations (mechanical hyperalgesia) and a paw swelling in a dose-dependent manner as it was measured using Von Frey anesthesiometer and plethysmometer, respectively. These effects were followed by a decreased expression of IL-1β and iNOS mRNAs in rat’s paw tissue suggesting that the antihyperalgesic and antiedematous effects of the EPS CG11 are related to the suppression of inflammatory response. Additionally, we demonstrated that EPS CG11 exhibits immunosuppressive properties in the peritonitis model induced by carrageenan. Expression levels of pro-inflammatory mediators IL-1β, TNF-α and iNOS were decreased, together with the enhanced secretion of anti-inflammatory IL-10 and IL-6 cytokines, while neutrophil infiltration was not changed. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study which reports an antihyperalgesic effect as the novel property of bacterial EPSs. Given the high demands of pharmaceutical industry for the replacement of commonly used analgesics due to numerous side effects, this study describes a promising natural compound for the future pharmacological testing in the area.
