AIMS To study the antibiogram of 40 seafood isolates of Salmonella and use of PCR to detect the presence of integrons and genes coding for antibiotic resistance. METHODS AND RESULTS In this study, 40 isolates of Salmonella were used for antibiogram analysis. The multidrug-resistant isolates were analyzed for the presence of integron using(More)
Thermostable direct hemolysin (TDH) and TDH-related hemolysin (TRH) are considered important virulence factors of Vibrio parahaemolyticus and strains producing either of these or both are considered pathogenic. In this study, we generated monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) against purified TRH recombinant protein of pathogenic V. parahaemolyticus. Sandwich(More)
This paper presents a transient solution for the system size in an M/M/2 queue where the service rates of the servers are not identical with the possibility of catastrophes at the system. The time dependent probabilities for the number in the system are obtained. The steady state probabilities of the system size are also provided. Some important performance(More)
Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a seafood-borne pathogen autochthonous to the marine and estuarine ecosystem, which is responsible for gastroenteritis due to the consumption of contaminated raw seafood. Here, we report the draft genome sequence of V. parahaemolyticus VP-49, isolated from seafood, to identify the different virulence attributes and to study the(More)
