Lecithin is suitable for foods as well industrial applications. It contains a high level of natural, functional lecithin phospholipids. Given its ability to neutralize quaternary ammonium compounds, lecithin allows for the isolation of microorganisms from surfaces sanitized with these agents. The third major route for catabolism of pyruvate leads to ethanol. In some plant tissues and in certain invertebrates, protists, and microorganisms such as brewer's yeast, pyruvate is converted anaerobically into ethanol and CO 2, a process called alcohol (or ethanol) fermentation (Fig. ).. The focus of this chapter is catabolism, but pyruvate has other, anabolic, fates.
A new class of phospholipids, N-Acyl-O-phosphocholineserines, has been described for the first time in in plasma of subjects suffering Niemann-Pick disease type C1 (Sidhu R et al., J Lipid Res , 60, ). These lipids were also shown to be present in plasma and brain of Nieman-Pick’s cat models. Short chain fatty acids (SCFA), including propionate, are produced by the bacterial fermentation of carbohydrates in the colon. Propionate has many potential roles in health, including inhibiting cholesterol synthesis, de novo lipogenesis and increasing satiety. The profile of SCFA produced is determined by both the substrate available and the bacteria present and may be influenced by Author: Hannah Charlotte Harris.

Andrew B. Onderdonk, Wendy S. Garrett, in Mandell, Douglas, and Bennett's Principles and Practice of Infectious Diseases (Eighth Edition), Pathogenesis. All strains of C. perfringens produce α-toxin, a lecithinase that causes damage to cell membranes. During severe sepsis with C.
perfringens, rapid hemolytic anemia may occur due to hemolysis caused by the α-toxin. Lecithinase is a type of phospholipase that acts upon lecithin.
It can be produced by Clostridium perfringens, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa or Listeria monocytogenes. perfringens alpha toxin (lecithinase) causes myonecrosis and lecithinase of S. aureus is used in detection of coagulase-positive strains, because of high link between lecithinase activity and Carboxylic ester hydrolases:.
Lecithinase test or Nagler’s reaction is a biochemical test used to identify organisms that liberate phospholipases (lecithinases) e.g.
Clostridium alpha (α) toxin of C. perfringens has phospholipase activity and hence, helps in the differentiation of C.

This pathogen is an usually strong positive producer of lecithinase enzyme, strongly hemolytic on sheep blood agar, and is actively motile. Other lecithinase positive or weakly positive cultures may be B.
thuringiensis and cis. The isolated bacteria were screened for lecithinase enzyme (toxin) production by the cup plate clearing zone technique. All isolates were positive on the basis of their ability to grow aerobically on egg yolk agar, giving black colonies as a characteristic feature of lecithinase production and opaque zones with diameters of 4–27 mm.
Isolates Cited by: 6. Nagler’s reaction is a test for the identification of alpha toxin of Clostridium toxin is lecithinase which hydrolyses the phospholipid lecithin (a component of cell membranes). The activity of the alpha-toxin(lecithinase) can be demonstrated by growth on agar containing egg yolk (as a source of lecithin): an opaque zone representing insoluble diglyceride, becomes evident.
lecithinase: [ les´ĭ-thin-ās″ ] an enzyme that splits up lecithin ; called also phospholipase. The plc gene encoding the alpha-toxin (phospholipase C), an important virulence factor of Clostridium perfringens, has been cloned, sequenced and expressed in Escherichia coli.
Transcriptional analysis of mRNAs produced in vivo by C. perfringens and E. coli, and in vitro using purified RNA polymerase from C. perfringens revealed that plc is transcribed constitutively from a Cited by: Define lecithinase.
