Multilocus Sequence Typing for Characterization of Clinical and Environmental Salmonella Strains
ABSTRACT Multilocus sequence typing (MLST) based on the 16S RNA, pduF, glnA, and manB genes was developed for Salmonella, and its discriminatory ability was compared to those of pulsed-field gelExpand

Multilocus Sequence Typing for Studying Genetic Relationships among Yersinia Species
ABSTRACT The intra- and interspecies genetic relationships of 58 strains representing all currently known species of the genus Yersinia were examined by multilocus sequence typing (MLST), usingExpand

Improved Pulsed-Field Gel Electrophoresis for Typing Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococci
ABSTRACT A rapid protocol for subtyping vancomycin-resistant enterococci by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis is reported. The procedure is simple and potentially cost-effective and allowsExpand

Comparative Analysis of Multilocus Sequence Typing and Pulsed-Field Gel Electrophoresis for Characterizing Listeria monocytogenes Strains Isolated from Environmental and Clinical Sources
ABSTRACT One hundred seventy-five Listeria monocytogenes strains were characterized by serotyping, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE), and multilocus sequence typing (MLST) based on loci inExpand

Purification and characterization of an extracellular cytolysin produced by Vibrio vulnificus.
An extracellular cytolytic toxin produced by the halophilic bacterium Vibrio vulnificus was isolated free of detectable contamination with medium constituents and other bacterial products byExpand

Multilocus Sequence Typing Has Better Discriminatory Ability for Typing Vibrio cholerae than Does Pulsed-Field Gel Electrophoresis and Provides a Measure of Phylogenetic Relatedness
ABSTRACT Twenty-two Vibrio cholerae isolates, including some from “epidemic” (O1 and O139) and “nonepidemic” serogroups, were characterized by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) and multilocusExpand

Phospholipase D activity of Vibrio damsela cytolysin and its interaction with sheep erythrocytes.
Exposure of sheep erythrocytes to sublytic amounts of Vibrio damsela cytolysin markedly reduced their membrane sphingomyelin content and their sensitivity to lysis by the sphingomyelin-dependentExpand

Purification and properties of staphylococcal delta hemolysin.
Large amounts (200 mg per liter of culture supernatant fluid) of highly purified staphylococcal soluble delta hemolysin were obtained by adsorption to and selective elution from hydroxyapatiteExpand
