Abstract

Fifty of urine samples were collected from patients with urinary tract infection
(UTI). The samples were collected from AL- Yarmuk hospital in Baghdad. All of
the isolates were diagnosed using biochemical test and vitek. The result showed that
30 (60%) isolates identified as E.coli from 50 urine samples. The colicinogenic
isolates were determined using cup assay methods. The results showed that 10 out of
30 isolates (33.3%) were detect as colicin producers from 30 isolate identified as
E.coli depending on the clear zone that observed against the sensitive isolate.
Colicin was extracted from the efficient isolate. Colicin activity (320 U/ml) was
determined by well assay method. The protein concentration (520 μg /ml) estimated
by using Bradford assay. The watery extract of Chilli papers (Capsicum baccatum)
was extracted and used it as reducing and capping agent for gold nanoparticles
synthesis. The characterization of the gold nanoparticles was done by UV-Visible
Spectrophotometer, Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM), and resulting
spherical nanoparticles with diameter ranging between (35-70 nm). The antibacterial
activity of colicin alone and gold nanoparticles alone and combination of colicin
with gold nanoparticles against ten isolates Pseudomonas aerugensa isolated from
burn samples, using tube method. The results showed that all the three treatment had
antibacterial activity but the combination of gold nanoparticles and colicin is better
than used each one separately.
