Interaction of Listeria monocytogeneswith Human Brain Microvascular Endothelial Cells: InlB-Dependent Invasion, Long-Term Intracellular Growth, and Spread from Macrophages to Endothelial Cells
ABSTRACT Invasion of endothelial tissues may be crucial in a Listeria monocytogenes infection leading to meningitis and/or encephalitis. Internalization of L. monocytogenes into endothelial cells hasExpand

A new PrfA‐regulated gene of Listeria monocytogenes encoding a small, secreted protein which belongs to the family of internalins
A mutant of Listeria monocytogenes EGD was constructed that carries an extended deletion removing the entire PrfA‐regulated gene cluster from plcA to plcB and a second deletion inactivating the inlAExpand

Immunological crossreactivity between a cloned antigen of Onchocerca volvulus and a component of the retinal pigment epithelium
Onchocerciasis (river blindness) is a major blinding disease in Africa, Central America, and South America. Loss of vision can be due to corneal change, optic atrophy, or chorioretinal disease. ItExpand

Sequence comparison of the chromosomal regions encompassing the internalin C genes (inlC ) of Listeria monocytogenes and L. ivanovii
Abstract We have recently cloned and characterized the inlC gene of Listeria monocytogenes which belongs to the listerial internalin multigene family and codes for a 30-kDa secreted proteinExpand

A novel PrfA‐regulated chromosomal locus, which is specific for Listeria ivanovii, encodes two small, secreted internalins and contributes to virulence in mice
Several large, cell wall‐associated internalins and one small, secreted internalin (InlC) have been described previously in Listeria monocytogenes. Using degenerate primers derived from sequencedExpand

Inefficient replication of Listeria innocua in the cytosol of mammalian cells.
The efficiency of adherence to, internalization by, and replication in the cytosol of J774 macrophages and HEp-2 epithelial cells was compared between a nonspreading Listeria monocytogenes actAExpand

Wie fakultativ intrazelluläre Bakterien Krankheiten auslösen
Einige der grosten Geiseln der Menschheit wie die Pest, die Tuberkulose und die Bakterienruhr werden von Bakterien verursacht, die sich in Wirtszellen vermehren.Doch erst seit den letzten zehn JahrenExpand
