Expansion of variant diversity associated with high prevalence of pathogen strain superinfection under conditions of natural transmission
(Infection and Immunity, 2012-07)
Superinfection occurs when a second, genetically distinct pathogen strain infects a host that has already mounted an immune response to a primary strain. For antigenically variant pathogens, the primary strain itself ...
BlaCMY-2 positive Inc A/C plasmids from Escherichia coli and Salmonella enterica are a distinct component of a larger lineage of plasmids
(Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, 2009-11)
Large multidrug resistance plasmids of the A/C incompatibility complex (IncA/C) have been found in a diverse group of Gram-negative commensal and pathogenic bacteria. We present three completed sequences from IncA/C plasmids ...
Whole-proteome analysis of twelve species of Alphaproteobacteria links four pathogens
Thousands of whole-genome and whole-proteome sequences have been made available through advances in sequencing technology, and sequences of millions more organisms will become available in the coming years. This wealth of ...
