Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (MAP) strains with two new IS900 restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) BstEII types intermediate suspected to belong to the MAP Type III group were isolated from migrating sheep in Germany. Such strains have only been sporadically identified in a few studies. For a better understanding of the genomic(More)
Multitarget genotyping of the etiologic agent Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis is necessary for epidemiological tracing of paratuberculosis (Johne's disease). The study was undertaken to assess the informative value of different typing techniques and individual genome markers by investigation of M. avium subsp. paratuberculosis transmission(More)
Bovine Johne's disease (paratuberculosis), caused by Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis, poses a significant economic problem to the beef and dairy industry worldwide. Despite its relevance, however, pathogenesis of Johne's disease is still only partially resolved. Since mycobacterial membrane proteins expressed during infection are likely to(More)
