Abstract

Clostridium chauvoei causes blackleg disease in domestic animals, especially cattle and sheep. The pathogen produces several toxins including CctA - a hemolysin and protective antigen. Molecular pathogenesis of the disease is poorly understood, possibly due to lack of genetic manipulation tools for ...

Abstract

Blackleg disease, caused by Clostridium chauvoie, of cattle and sheep in Russia is prevented by a single vaccine. The vaccine is highly effective against C. chauvoie with an efficacy of upto six months. This vaccine is very efficient in all parts of Russia since stall period is 6-7 months. However, ...

Abstract

Full genome sequences of 20 strains of Clostridium chauvoei, the etiological agent of blackleg of cattle and sheep, isolated from four different continents over a period of 64 years (1951-2015) were determined and analyzed. The study reveals that the genome of the species C. chauvoei is highly...

Abstract

In the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, biosecurity measures were implemented by many governments to protect agricultural industries from disease. These measures were informed by developments in the understanding of disease, as the science of bacteriology began to influence both public...

AbstractFull Text

A standardized immunochemistry method for the diagnosis of clostridial myonecrosis was applied to 38 formalized tissue samples from ruminants with clinical and post mortem history suggestive of blackleg or gas gangrene. The diagnosis of clostridial myonecrosis was confirmed in 37 out of 38 (97.4%)...

AbstractFull Text

Aim: Blackleg disease is caused by Clostridium chauvoei in ruminants. Although virulence factors such as C. chauvoei toxin A, sialidase, and flagellin are well characterized, hyaluronidases of C. chauvoei are not characterized. The present study was aimed at cloning and sequence analysis of...

Abstract

Blackleg is a highly fatal disease of cattle and sheep, caused by Clostridium chauvoei, a Gram positive, anaerobic, spore forming bacteria. Cell surface-associated proteins play a major role in inducing the protective immunity. However, the identity of a majority of cell surface-associated proteins ...
