The mechanisms whereby Campylobacter jejuni translocates across the host intestinal epithelium are not yet understood and the transepithelial route remains undefined. During C. jejuni translocation, the transmonolayer electrical resistance (TER) across polarised monolayers of Caco-2 cells is not affected and the penetration of [(14)C]inulin across the(More)
Campylobacter jejuni colonizes the intestines of domestic and wild animals and is a common cause of human diarrheal disease. We identified a two-component regulatory system, designated the RacR-RacS (reduced ability to colonize) system, that is involved in a temperature-dependent signalling pathway. A mutation of the response regulator gene racR reduced the(More)
Amantadine acetylation was demonstrated to occur both in vivo and in vitro using transgenic male mice overexpressing spermidine/spermine N-acetyltransferase (SSAT). We previously reported that neither NAT1 nor NAT2 was responsible for catalyzing acetylation of the primary amine group of amantadine. We hypothesized that the inducible polyamine-catabolizing(More)
