Immunogenicity and Linked Recognition of
Like several other bacterial pathogens,
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 ...
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 ...
The Role of the Nipah Virus G Head and Stalk Regions in Modulating Viral Fusion
Nipah virus (NiV) is an emerging zoonotic virus within the paramyxovirus family that causes severe neurological and respiratory disease in its victims and has mortality rates in humans of up to one hundred percent. Membrane ...
TRANSCRIPTOME ANALYSIS OF VIBRIO PARAHAEMOLYTICUS IN TYPE III SECRETION SYSTEM 1 INDUCING CONDITIONS
Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a bacterial pathogen capable of causing gastroenteritis, wound infections and septicemia. Its virulence factors include two type III secretion systems (T3SS1 and T3SS2) that cause host-cell ...
CONTRIBUTION OF SALMONELLA ENTERITIDIS VIRULENCE FACTORS TO INTESTINAL COLONIZATION AND SYSTEMIC DISSEMINATION IN DAY-OLD CHICKENS
Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis (S. Enteritidis) is one of the most common serovars associated with poultry and poultry product contamination in the USA. We previously identified fifteen mutant strains of S. ...
DECIPHERING MECHANISMS OF VLSE-MEDIATED IMMUNE AVOIDANCE BY BORRELIA BURGDORFERI
The current work has focused on antigenic variation of the VlsE surface lipoprotein, a key mechanism for immune evasion and persistent infection by the Lyme disease spirochete,
IDENTIFICATION OF GENES THAT REGULATE TYPE-III SECRETION SYSTEM I OF VIBRIO PARAHAEMOLYTICUS IN RESPONSE TO HOST-CELL CONTACT
Vibrio parahaemolyticus pandemic serotype O3:K6 causes acute gastroenteritis, wound infections and septicemia in humans. This organism encodes two type - III secretion systems (T3SS1 and T3SS2) of which host - cell ...
