J. Bacteriol. 2011 Apr; 193(7):
Klebsiella pneumoniae is a Gram-negative bacterium of the
family Enterobacteriaceae that possesses diverse metabolic
capabilities: many strains are leading causes of
hospital-acquired infections that are often refractory to
multiple antibiotics, yet other strains are metabolically
engineered and used for production of commercially valuable
chemicals. To study its metabolism, we constructed a
genome-scale metabolic model (iYL1228) for strain MGH 78578,
experimentally determined its biomass composition,
experimentally determined its ability to grow on a broad range
of carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and sulfur sources, and
assessed the ability of the model to accurately simulate growth
versus no growth on these substrates. The model contains 1,228
genes encoding 1,188 enzymes that catalyze 1,970 reactions and
accurately simulates growth on 84% of the substrates tested.
Furthermore, quantitative comparison of growth rates between
the model and experimental data for nine of the substrates also
showed good agreement. The genome-scale metabolic
reconstruction for K. pneumoniae presented here thus provides
an experimentally validated in silico platform for further
studies of this important industrial and biomedical

Project description:This SuperSeries is composed of the following subset Series: GSE35746: Comparative analysis of regulatory elements between Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae by genome-wide transcription start site profiling [tiling arrays] GSE35821: Comparative analysis of regulatory elements between Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae by genome-wide transcription start site profiling [TSS-Seq] Refer to individual Series
Project description:Genome-wide gene expression analysis was performed with the cells in exponential and stationary growth phases. Through these two growth status, 89.6% of currently annotated genes were expressed. High-density oligonucleotide tiling arrays consisting of 379,528 50-mer probes spaced 30 bp apart across the whole Klebsiella pneumoniae MGH 78578 genome was used (Roche NimbleGen).
Project description:Bacteria can circumvent the effect of antibiotics by transitioning to a poorly understood physiological state that does not involve conventional genetic elements of resistance. Here we examine antibiotic susceptibility with a Class A β-lactamase+ invasive strain of Klebsiella pneumoniae that was isolated from a lethal outbreak within laboratory colonies of Chlorocebus aethiops sabaeus monkeys. Bacterial responses to the ribosomal synthesis inhibitors streptomycin and doxycycline resulted in distinct proteomic adjustments that facilitated decreased susceptibility to each antibiotic.
Project description:Purpose: The goal of this study was to use RNA-seq to define the Klebsiella pneumoniae transcriptome recorded under 5 different experimental conditions, and to identify signature genes of each condition by comparing global transcriptional profiles. Methods: mRNA profiles were generated for Klebsiella pneumoniae CH1034 clinical isolate, in triplicate, by deep sequencing. Total RNAs were harvested from bacteria cultured at 37°C in M63B1 minimal media under different conditions: (i) planktonic aerobic condition at OD 620nm=0.250 (exponential growth-phase), (ii) overnight planktonic aerobic condition (stationnary growth-phase), (iii) biofilm in a flow-cell chamber after 7 hours of incubation (7-hours old biofilm), (iv) biofilm in a flow-cell chamber after 13 hours of incubation (13-hours old biofilm), (v) bacteria self-dispersed from biofilm recovered in the flow-cell effluent (biofilm-dispersed bacteria). Ribosomal RNAs were removed using the Bacteria Ribo-Zero Magnetic kit (Epicentre Biotechnologies). Libraries were prepared using the TruSeq Stranded mRNA Sample Preparation kit (Illumina), and 50bp single-reads were obtained by HiSeq 2000 (Illumina).The sequence reads that passed FastQC quality filters were mapped to the CH1034 genome using Burrows–Wheeler Aligner (BWA) (0.7.12-r1039 version). The transcript levels were determined using HTSeq-count (0.6.1p1 version) with union mode followed by DESeq (1.16.0 version) analysis. qRT–PCR validation was performed using SYBR Green assays. Results: We found that each condition has a specific transcriptional profile, and we identify 4 robust signature genes for each. Conclusion: Our study represents the first detailed analysis of K. pneumoniae transcriptomes under different experimental conditions generated by RNA-seq technology. The data reported here should permit the dissection of complex biologic functions involved in the transition between the sessile and planktonic modes of growth. Overall design: Determination of the transcriptional profiling of Klebsiella pneumoniae under 5 different experimental conditions. mRNA profiles were generated for bacteria under exponential planktonic growth-phase, stationary planktonic growth-phase, 7 hours-old biofilm, 13 hours-old biofilm and biofilm-dispersed modes, each in three biological replicates, by deep sequencing using Illumina HiSeq
Project description:Efflux of antimicrobial compounds from bacterial cells is one of the important mechanisms responsible for multi-drug resistance (MDR). Inhibiting the activity of efflux pumps using chemosensitizers like 1-(1-naphthylmethyl)-piperazine (NMP) is currently considered as a promising strategy to overcome MDR. However, additional effects of NMP other than inhibition are rarely if ever considered. Here, using phenotypic, phenotypic microarray and transcriptomic assays we show that NMP plays a role in membrane destabilization in MDR Klebsiella pneumoniae MGH 78578 strain. The observation of membrane destabilization was supported by RNA-seq data which showed that many up-regulated genes were either directly involved in responses to envelope stress or bacterial repair systems which are essential to maintain viability in an environment containing NMP. Membrane destabilization happens as early as 15 minutes post-NMP treatment. We postulate that the early membrane disruption leads to destabilization of inner membrane potential, impairing ATP production and consequently resulting in efflux pump inhibition. Overall design: β-Lactamase activity, membrane potential and Transmission Electron Microscopy assays were used to assay the NMP mediated membrane destabilisation in MDR Klebsiella pneumoniae MGH 78578 strain. We further used the Phenotypic Microarray (Biolog) and RNA-seq to elucidate the transcriptional and metabolic signals. Crystal violet-based assays were also used to assay the biofilm formation ability of NMP treated bacterial cells.
