Like several other bacterial pathogens,
Growth of Mannheimia haemolytica:Inhibitory agents and putative mechanism of inhibition
Pneumonia is the most important disease of bighorn sheep (BHS). Pathogens detected in pneumonic BHS lungs include Mannheimia haemolytica, Bibersteinia trehalosi, Pasteurella multocida and Mycoplasma ovipneumoniae. Although ...
Factors involved in the proliferation of blaCMY-2 plasmid-bearing Escherichia coli in cattle
Third-generation cephalosporins are a crucial component of the antibiotic arsenal for human and veterinary medicine. Resistance to third-generation cephalosporins is often conveyed by blaCMY-2 plasmids. The prevalence of ...
IDENTIFICATION OF THE MECHANISM RESPONSIBLE FOR ATENNUATION OF RIFAMPICIN-PASSAGED FLAVOBACTERIUM PSYCHROPHILUM, ETIOLOGIC AGENT OF BACTERIAL COLDWATER DISEASE
Flavobacterium psychrophilum is the etiologic agent of bacterial coldwater disease (CWD) and rainbow trout fry syndrome (RTFS) in salmonids. Presently there are no licensed vaccines for this disease, but earlier work showed ...
The role of excreted antibiotics in the establishment of persistent on-farm reservoirs of antibiotic-resistant bacteria
Bioavailable antibiotic residues from treated animals likely contribute to the persistence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in agricultural systems. To determine the magnitude of this effect, we evaluated changes in the ...
Phenazine antibiotic-producing rhizobacterial strains belonging to the genus
COMPARATIVE INVESTIGATION OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEMS OF TWO OVINE SPECIES (OVIS ARIES AND OVIS CANADENSIS)
Chapter 1 describes the economic and ecologic significance of respiratory disease in domestic sheep (DS; Ovis aries) and bighorn sheep (BHS; Ovis canadensis) and the need for interspecies comparative immune analyses. In ...
ELUCIDATING MECHANISMS FOR PERSISTENT INFECTION BY THE RELAPSING FEVER SPIROCHETE BORRELIA HERMSII
Relapsing fever is a tick-borne bacterial disease caused by a number of species in the genus Borrelia. Persistence is a key component of the lifecycle of relapsing fever Borrelia as it improves the chance for tick acquisition ...
