JAIN, B., A. TEWARI, B. B. BHANDARI, M. K. JHALA: Antibiotic resistance and virulence genes in Streptococcus agalactiae isolated from cases of bovine subclinical mastitis. Vet. arhiv 82, 423-432, 2012. ABSTRACT Twenty-seven S. agalactiae isolates obtained after screening 89 cows for subclinical mastitis were studied for antibiotic resistance and virulence(More)
Legionella pneumophila is the causative agent of a severe form of pneumonia in humans (Legionnaires' disease). A major virulence factor, the Mip protein (FK506-binding protein, FKBP25mem), belongs to the enzyme family of peptidyl-prolyl cis/trans isomerases (PPlases). Here we show that L. pneumophila Philadelphia I possesses an additional cytoplasmic PPlase(More)
Legionella pneumophila is a facultative intracellular parasite which is able to survive in various eukaryotic cells. We characterised a Tn5-mutant of the L. pneumophila Corby strain and were able to identify the insertion site of the transposon. It is localised within an open reading frame which shows high homology to the alpha-subunit of the oxaloacetate(More)
Legionella pneumophila, the causative agent of Legionnaires' disease is sensitive to ampicillin. However, the slowly growing bacteria are not killed even by high doses of this antibiotic. This natural tolerance was used for counter-selection of trans-conjugants in heterospecific matings with Escherichia coli as donor. This approach is useful for gentic(More)
