Role of several Staphylococcus aureus virulence factors on the inflammatory response in bovine mammary gland.
TLDR
Analysis of the association between virulence genes and the presence of a subclinical mastitis showed the role of spa and sej gene as risk factors, which support that the development of subclinicalmastitis could be related to strains characteristics and to the expression of specific combinations of the virulence factors. Expand
Direct detection of unamplified DNA from pathogenic mycobacteria using DNA-derivatized gold nanoparticles.
TLDR
The proposed colorimetric method could be used as a highly specific and sensitive screening tool for the detection of mycobacteria directly from clinical samples in a very simple manner, without the need of high-cost dedicated equipment. Expand
Avian mycobacteriosis in companion birds: 20-year survey.
TLDR
Interestingly, a few cases of avian mycobacteriosis were recorded in very young birds, and the most commonly affected species were the canary, the Eurasian goldfinch and the red siskin. Expand
Detection of Pathogenic Mycobacteria Based on Functionalized Quantum Dots Coupled with Immunomagnetic Separation
TLDR
The first stage of development of an assay incorporating cadmium selenide quantum dots (QDs) for the detection of mycobacterial surface antigens is presented and can be easily adjusted for any other protein target of either the pathogen or the host. Expand
Mycobacterium genavense and avian polyomavirus co-infection in a European Goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis)
TLDR
Systemic mycobacteriosis associated with avian polyomavirus infection was diagnosed histologically in an 8-year-old, captive European goldfinch with a history of nervous signs, and it was suggested that inhalation may have been the primary route of infection with M. genavense. Expand
Estimation of the spread of pathogenic mycobacteria in organic broiler farms by the polymerase chain reaction.
TLDR
Considering that avian tuberculosis has been eradicated from conventional farms, the level and the pattern of positivity recorded here, indicates that the results may be associated with the specific conditions that apply to organic breeding. Expand
Specific Detection of Unamplified Mycobacterial DNA by Use of Fluorescent Semiconductor Quantum Dots and Magnetic Beads
TLDR
The proposed diagnostic assay offers a simple, rapid, specific, and cost-effective method for direct detection and identification of mycobacterial DNA in clinical samples. Expand
Evaluation of the performance of selected in-house and commercially available PCR and real-time PCR assays for the detection of Leishmania DNA in canine clinical samples.
TLDR
The results that were recorded indicate that evaluation of PCR assays before their application for research and clinical diagnosis can provide useful evidence for their reliable application and the use of internal amplification controls and the confirmation of the specificity of the amplification product is recommended. Expand
Emerging Trichinella britovi infections in free ranging pigs of Greece.
TLDR
The practice of organic pig production systems in Greece has grown in popularity over the last years due to the increasing interest of consumers for products considered as traditional, however, this type of pig production increases the risk for Trichinella spp. Expand
