As an indispensable virulence determinant, Salmonella pathogenicity island 1(SPI-1) has gained much attention in host–pathogen interactions. More and more studies on SPI-1 have demonstrated that it is far more complex than the one we used to expect. It not only affects sophisticated activities during infection, including invasion, replication, and host(More)
To investigate the effect of the pRST98 plasmid, originally isolated from Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi (S. Typhi), on biofilm (BF) formation, we carried out in vitro experiments using S. Typhi, Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium (S. Typhimurium) and Escherichia coli (E. coli). We further explored the effects of pRST98 in vivo by establishing two(More)
