Proteases of Infectious Agents

Proteases are enzymes that primarily "eat" protein. with out proteases, infectious organisms can't accurately mount an assault opposed to a bunch. it's therefore that proteases became well known goals for drug discovery. examine has proven that should you can inhibit the protease, you could safeguard opposed to the invading microbe.

As described by Barry, the critical population is one of the three critical parameters in determining zone size. Higher inoculum densities will result in bacterial numbers reaching the critical population sooner, at a time when the critical concentration has diffused less than with lower inoculum densities (12). In the case of very dense inocula, it is likely that no zone at all will be formed, even if the organism is susceptible. Inoculum density is particularly important when the bacteria produce inactivating enzymes such as β-lactamases, especially if the enzyme requires induction, such as in the case of staphylococcal penicillinase.

When one or more results are out of this range, the test run must be considered invalid and be rerun. Use in Routine Susceptibility Testing Agar dilution can been adapted to routine susceptibility testing. Essentially, it is a truncated method that incorporates one or two selected concentrations of antimicrobial, usually at breakpoint values (so-called breakpoint susceptibility testing). It has been advocated as an option for routine testing by some authorities (153) but is slowly being supplanted by other methods.

Intermediate results are sometimes seen when the urine bacterial concentration is higher than the inoculum in the standardized test. Some authors have also noted that the accuracy of direct testing drops when resistance to an antibiotic class is prevalent (77) and have attributed this to the proximity of many zone diameters to breakpoint values when resistance is present. If all the just described criteria are followed, then direct results could be considered valid and should not require repeat testing by the conventional method (77).
