Host adapted serotypes of Salmonella enterica
Salmonella constitutes a genus of zoonotic bacteria of worldwide economic and health importance. The current view of salmonella taxonomy assigns the members of this genus to two species: S. entericaExpand

Isolation and curing of the Klebsiella pneumoniae large indigenous plasmid using sodium dodecyl sulphate.
The ability of Klebsiella pneumoniae (NCTC, CL687/80) to produce and, in turn, excrete glutamate has been equated with the presence of a large indigenous plasmid with an apparent molecular mass inExpand

Differences in the carriage and the ability to utilize the serotype associated virulence plasmid in strains of Salmonella enterica serotype Typhimurium investigated by use of a self-transferable
Most strains of Salmonella enterica subspecies enterica serotype typhimurium (S. typhimurium) naturally harbour a virulence plasmid which carries the salmonella plasmid virulence (spv) genes.Expand

The Salmonella virulence plasmid enhances Salmonella-induced lysis of macrophages and influences inflammatory responses.
The Salmonella dublin virulence plasmid mediates systemic infection in mice and cattle. Here, we analyze the interaction between wild-type and plasmid-cured Salmonella strains with phagocytes inExpand

The carbohydrate-binding domain on galectin-1 is more extensive for a complex glycan than for simple saccharides: implications for galectin–glycan interactions at the cell surface
gal-1 (galectin-1) mediates cell–cell and cell–extracellular matrix adhesion, essentially by interacting with β-galactoside-containing glycans of cell-surface glycoconjugates. Although mostExpand

Detection and characterisation of integrons in Salmonella enterica serotype enteritidis.
Integrons have been widely described among the Enterobacteriaceae including strains of multi-resistant Salmonella enterica serotype Typhimurium DT104; however, information with respect to theExpand

Phage type conversion in Salmonella enterica serotype Enteritidis caused by the introduction of a resistance plasmid of incompatibility group X (IncX).
The plasmid pOG670, a 54 kb, conjugative plasmid that specifies resistance to ampicillin and kanamycin and belonging to the incompatibility group X (IncX), was transferred into 10 isolates ofExpand
