Acinetobacter baumannii is gram-negative aerobic bacteria that can be found in different environment such as food which is contain vegetables, meat, fish, also in soil and fresh water. Acinetobacter baumannii has globally considered as opportunistic nosocomial bacteria in the healthcare setting, contributing to increased morbidity and mortality. Th...
Article
Acinetobacter baumannii, is widespread, opportunistic pathogen that has conceded as a global threat because of high levels of resistance to many antibiotics. Many study report the molecular characterization of sulphonamide resistance genes and gene cassettes associated with class I integrons in various Enterobacteriaceae including extended spectrum...

Pseudomonas aeruginosa possesses two types of iron transport systems and one of them is Pyoverdine, which is fluorescent under the UV light and encoded by the PvdA gene. This pigment is great importance in iron deficiency or its loss affects to cell division and stops the DNA manufacturing process. The other type of pigment is Pyochelin, and that b...

Fifty samples were collected from different hospitals in Baghdad city for the period (1/10 – 30/11/2019). Isolates were diagnosed depending on cultural characterizes the bacteria were inoculated on Blood agar, MacConkey agar, and selective CHROMagar orientation, and were diagnosed depending on biochemical tests. Thirty isolates were identified as P...
