Identification of a novel transposon-associated phosphoethanolamine transferase gene, mcr-5, conferring colistin resistance in d-tartrate fermenting Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar
The findings suggest that the transfer of colistin-resistance-mediating phosphoethanolamine transferase genes from bacterial chromosomes to mobile genetic elements has occurred in multiple independent events raising concern regarding their variety, prevalence and impact on public health. Expand
Substrate specificity of cellobiose dehydrogenase from Phanerochaete chrysosporium.
Kinetic data show that beta-di or oligosaccharides are favored electron donors with respect to both KM and kcat, and surprisingly, thiocellobiose showed an even higher kcat than cellobiose, although the KM value was somewhat higher. Expand
Time course of infection with Salmonella typhimurium and its influence on fecal shedding, distribution in inner organs, and antibody response in fattening pigs.
A positive correlation between bacteremia-associated fever and fecal shedding rate was observed, and the proportion of pigs that tested seropositive was higher over the entire fattening period, revealing the advantage of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for Salmonella screening on herd level.

Family 7 cellobiohydrolases from Phanerochaete chrysosporium: crystal structure of the catalytic module of Cel7D (CBH58) at 1.32 A resolution and homology models of the isozymes.
The results suggest that at least two of the five other family 7 genes found in P. chrysosporium will have differences in specificity and possibly catalytic mechanism, thus offering some explanation for the presence of Cel7 isozymes in this species, which are differentially expressed in response to various growth conditions.

Influence of a Probiotic Strain of Enterococcus faecium on Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhimurium DT104 Infection in a Porcine Animal Infection Model
The results of this study suggest that E. faecium NCIMB 10415 treatment enhanced the course of infection in weaning piglets challenged with Salmonella serovar Typhimurium DT104, however, the probiotic treatment also appeared to result in greater production of specific antibodies against Salmonellosis.

Colonization Kinetics of Different Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Sequence Types in Pigs and Host Susceptibilities
Differences in colonization potential of the different MRSA types in pigs are suggested, as colonization of lymph nodes (e.g., the ileocecal lymph node) with MRSA of the clonal lineage ST398 was demonstrated. Expand
The active component in the flax-retting system of the zygomycete Rhizopus oryzae sb is a family 28 polygalacturonase
The zygomycete Rhizopus oryzae sb is a very efficient organism for retting of flax, the initial microbiological step in the process of making linen. An extracellular polygalacturonase, when isolatedExpand
VIM-1-producing Salmonella Infantis isolated from swine and minced pork meat in Germany
High-throughput identification of bacteria and yeast by matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry in conventional medical microbiology laboratories is demonstrated. Expand
Olivibacter oleidegradans sp. nov., a hydrocarbon-degrading bacterium isolated from a biofilter clean-up facility on a hydrocarbon-contaminated site.
Physiological and chemotaxonomic data further confirmed the distinctiveness of strain TBF2/20.2(T) from recognized members of the genus Olivibacter. Expand
Cloning and characterization of a cDNA encoding a cellobiose dehydrogenase from the white rot fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium
The cDNA of cellobiose dehydrogenase (CDH) from Phanerochaete chrysosporium has been cloned and sequenced and no homologous sequences were found for the heme domain, however, the FAD domain appears to be distantly related to the GMC oxidoreductase family. Expand
