Revista Argentina de Microbiología is published by the Asociación Argentina de Microbiología (AAM) on a quarterly basis. The aim of this journal is to publish current scientific works in the different areas of Microbiology and Parasitology. Some of the topics considered of special interest are: infections caused by bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses; mechanisms of pathogenicity, and virulence factors; resistance to antimicrobial agents; taxonomy; epidemiology and phenotypic, immunologic and molecular diagnostic methods. RAM also publishes articles on microbial ecology and diversity, zoo- and phytopathogens and microorganisms of value for food, agronomic, industrial and environmental applications. With the purpose of covering basic aspects of research in the area, the journal is also interested in the publication of manuscripts on microorganism genomics, proteomics and enzymology, as well as in those articles dealing with regional impact.

Detection of plasma anti-lipopolysaccharide (LPS) antibodies against enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) in asymptomatic kindergarten teachers from Buenos Aires province
Romina J. Fernandez-Brando, Flavia Sacerdoti, María M. Amaral, Alan M. Bernal, Marcelo Da Rocha, Marcela Belardo, Marina S. Palermo, Cristina A. Ibarra

  • Fifty-one percent of teachers had circulating antibodies against O157, O145, O121 and O103 LPS.

  • Anti-O157 antibodies were the most abundant found in 43% of the samples.

  • Twenty-one of the samples reacted against more than one LPS serotype.

  • Twenty percent showed IgM antibodies against at least one LPS serotype.

  • Continuous educational programs could help to reduce cases of HUS.

Molecular detection of SARS-CoV-2 in Argentina: Evaluation of alternative diagnostic tools for the decentralization of the diagnosis
Gonzalo Manuel Castro, Paola Sicilia, Robertino Gierotto, Julieta Sosa, Andrés Marcos Castellaro, María Gabriela Barbás, María Belén Pisano, Viviana E. Ré
Rev Argent Microbiol. 2023;55:206-13

  • Tested SARS-CoV-2 molecular assays showed good performance and allowed decentralization.

  • The 9-min RNA extraction was the less time-consuming method yielding quality results.

  • FlashPrep® reagent showed excellent results to perform direct RNA detection.

  • Isothermal amplification assays showed acceptable sensibility and specificity.

  • All the assays were useful for detection of the COVID-19 waves in the central region of Argentina.

Primera evidencia de actividad enzimática nitrilasa en Xylaria sp., y su relación con la biosíntesis de ácido indol-3-acético
Jorge Ricaño-Rodríguez, Celeste Ricaño-Rodríguez, Daniela Luis-Yong, Oswaldo Guzmán-López
Rev Argent Microbiol. 2023;55:214-25

  • Xylaria sp. es capaz de llevar a cabo actividad enzimática nitrilasa.

  • Una secuencia homóloga de ADN transcribiría enzimas nitrilasas.

  • La expresión genética es inducible con diversas fuentes de carbono y nitrógeno.

  • El hongo produce AIA y promueve el desarrollo radicular en Arabidopsis thaliana.

  • Las enzimas nitrilasas son intermediarias metabólicas de AIA.
