2 Biotechnology Applications
2.1 Phage Therapy
2.1.1 Treat Bacterial Infections Growth/Harvest Isolation from Environmental Samples Soil Sewage Feces Water Retail Foods Safety Host Range Host Specificity Genera Immune Response To enzymes? Not in mice USSR Research Testing for residual phages Sample contamination issues? Administer in Food or Water Pre-Biotic Control of Salmonella in Chickens If this works, why aren't we using it?

2.6 Which pathogens are targetable
2.6.1 Phage Selection
2.6.2 How long of exposure is necessary? High Phage Concentration Overwhelm Pathogenic Cells During Primary Infection Phage Resistance Not Relevant Cell Lysis without Phage Replication Membrane Electric Potential Disrupted Cell Wall Degradation Enzymes Low Phage Dose - Relying on Secondary Infection Phage Replication and Subsequent Cell Lysis Transmission to Neighboring Target Cells Differences between object to be decontaminated
2.6.3 Enzybiotics Hollin Works with lysins to lyse cells from within Export lysins through inner membrane to gain access to peptidoglycan layer Bacteriocins Peptidoglycan (murein) hydrolases


  • Lysin/Endolysin Chimeolysins Cell Wall Binding Domains (CBDs) Catalytic Domains Artificial lysins (artilysins) Whole or partial lysin plus a peptide or protein Gram positive and negative bacteria simultaneously Gram negative bacteria may be less susceptible to lysins due to outer membrane differences? Improved activity Six categories Lethal 'from without' Digest cell walls MDR gram positive baceria Restriction enzymes not a problem? Treatment of systematic infections MRSA E. faecium Streptococcus pneumoniae Is activity lost over time? Removal of CBD Retains specificity Phages neutralized by sanitizers? Do not affect normal microflora Effective on mucosal surfaces

Cell Death: Phage Life Lytic Infection Cell Life: Phage Life Temperate Phase Lysogenic Infection Gene Expression Prophage Lamda Antimicrobial Resistance Is it possible to encode a gene sequence into a pathogen genome, through use of a phage, to impede virulence or enhance a desirable trait? Insertion of lethal gene to kill cells without lysis Prevent release of endotoxins in cells Genes to increase sensitivity to antibiotics Insert genes for bacteriocins into probiotic cells
