Abstract

Yersinia pestis is the causative agent of plague. This bacterium evolved from an ancestral enteroinvasive Yersinia pseudotuberculosis strain by gene loss and acquisition of new genes, allowing it to use fleas as transmission vectors. Infection frequently leads to a rapidly lethal outcome in humans, ...

AbstractFull Text

In last decades was initiated the concept of bacterial pathogen evolution from non-pathogenic ancestors by pathoadaptation by loss of gene function and it was defined an "antivirulence genes" as a gene whose expression in a bacterial pathogen is incompatible with the virulence of the pathogen. This ...

Abstract

The present study characterizes, for the first time, two emerging avian pathogenic Escherichia coli (APEC) clonal groups of serogroup O111: O111:H4-D-ST117 and O111:H4-D-ST2085. The clonal group O111:H4-D-ST117 was already present in APEC strains isolated between 1991 and 2000, and was still...

Abstract

Background: Edwardsiella tarda is an enterobacterium which causes edwardsiellosis, a fatal disease of cultured fishes such as red sea bream, eel, and flounder. Preventing the occurrence of E. tarda infection has thus been an important issue in aquaculture. E. tarda has been isolated from other...

Abstract

Thirty four avian Escherichia coli isolates were collected from different cities of Punjab province, Pakistan during 2008-2009. Twenty five phenotypic highly ampicillin-resistant (MICs ≥256 µg/ml) avian E. coli strains were selected for the investigation of occurrence and transmission of class 1, 2 ...

Abstract

Escherichia coli is an excellent model for studying the evolution of pathogenicity since within one species various genes can be found in pathogenic islands and plasmids causing a wide spectrum of virulence. A collection of 122 strains from different human and wild mammal hosts were analysed by PCR ...
