Previous work has suggested that a group of alpha/beta-type small, acid-soluble spore proteins (SASP) is involved in the resistance of Clostridium perfringens spores to moist heat. However, this suggestion is based on the analysis of C. perfringens spores lacking only one of the three genes encoding alpha/beta-type SASP in this organism. We have now used(More)
Clostridium perfringens type A food poisoning is caused by enterotoxigenic C. perfringens type A isolates that typically possess high spore heat-resistance. The molecular basis for C. perfringens spore heat-resistance remains unknown. In the current study, we investigated the role of small, acid-soluble spore proteins (SASPs) in heat-resistance of spores(More)
The molecular basis for the differences in heat resistance between spores of Clostridium perfringens food-borne versus nonfoodborne isolates remains unknown. Since a recent study demonstrated the role of small, acid-soluble spore proteins (SASPs) in heat resistance of spores of food-borne isolates, in the current study, we evaluated the expression of(More)
An enterotoxin (cpe) plasmid was cured from a Clostridium perfringens non-food-borne gastrointestinal disease (NFBGID) isolate, and the heat resistance levels of wild-type, cpe knockout, and cpe plasmid-cured strains were compared. Our results demonstrated that (i) wild-type cpe has no influence in mediating high-level heat resistance in C. perfringens and(More)
Clostridium perfringens type A food poisoning is caused by C. perfringens isolates carrying a chromosomal enterotoxin gene (cpe), while non-food-borne gastrointestinal (GI) diseases, such as antibiotic-associated diarrhea (AAD) and sporadic diarrhea (SD), are caused by C. perfringens plasmid cpe isolates. A recent study reported the association of beta2(More)
Previous work showed that C. perfringens spores lacking the majority of alpha/beta-type small, acid-soluble spore proteins (SASPs) (termed alpha(-) beta(-) spores) exhibit greatly decreased resistance to moist heat and UV radiation. The current study demonstrated that these alpha(-) beta(-) spores had reduced resistance to hydrogen peroxide, hydrochloric(More)
Recent epidemiological studies suggested that cpb2-positive Clostridium perfringens isolates are associated with gastrointestinal (GI) diseases in horses. These putative relationships, indicated by PCR genotyping, were tested in the present study by further genotyping and phenotyping of 23 cpb2-positive C. perfringens isolates from horses with GI disease(More)
In this paper Ransac algorithm is used to detect the motion is happened or not and this is by finding out the matching features between the two images. And then finding out the motion using optical flow algorithm. A common problem of optical flow judgment is fine motion structures cannot always be correctly estimated, especially for regions with significant(More)
