Dear all,

Currently, i am working on identification of new bacteria using biochemical tests from neonate faecal samples.
I would like to know is it likely for Melisossococcus spp. to appear in the faecal sample.
As far as i know, this genus is responsible for the pathogenic in honey. That's all i can find.
Is there anywhere that i can know more about it?? Please do let me know.
Thank you.

Regards,
Josephine :lol:

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee



you have 7 posts all 7 are "eeeee" ? Do you have some sort of mental instability?

@hhtan, it is Melissococcus spp and not Melisossococcus spp ;) and indead it is known for the problems with the honey bee.
I know you can find it in the bee faecal , but in humans? no idea.

I know (vaguely) someone who worked with it, I'll ask him if he knows something, however I doubt it because he mainly focusses on bees and not really humans.

If you don't know it, then ask it! Better to ask and look foolish to some than not ask and stay stupid.

Argh, I forgot that the one I was goint to ask about is on holiday ;)

However I did find this:document its a general text on lactic acid bacteria, Melissococcus (the genera) being on of them.. and they speak of them being found in faecals, however its a very general text, with no real details, but maybe some of the references might help you.

I also seem to remember vaguely that the genera Melissococcus is a type used in probiotics? but I am not sure about this.
(probiotics)
But about your specific question, its harder to get some info. I wonder whether they have really searched for it in human faecals.

Only ref I saw was to foul brood for this bacterium - formerly a Streptococcus sp.

Why would you think it to be a fecal isolate from neonates?

Hhatan, I asked your question but the person I know did not know if they ever looked for it in human feacal samples he did suggest to read the following article: article
And you might wanne contact the writers of this article maybe they know more about your specific question.

You might also want to check (contact) with one of the following organisms:

CSL National Bee Unit (NBU)
Central Science Laboratory National Bee Unit,
Sand Hutton, York, North Yorkshire, YO41 1LZ
Tel: 01904 462510
Fax: 01904 462240
Email: nbu@csl.gov.uk
Web: www.nationalbeeunit.com

Bee health pages:
www.defra.gov.uk/hort/bees.htm

He also suggested to look up some universities that are studying bees and they might be able to help you more.

If you don't know it, then ask it! Better to ask and look foolish to some than not ask and stay stupid.
