Comparative phylogenies of the housekeeping genes atpD, infB and rpoB and the 16S rRNA gene within the Pasteurellaceae.
Phylogenies of housekeeping gene and 16S rRNA gene sequences were compared to improve the classification of the bacterial family Pasteurellaceae and knowledge of the evolutionary relationships of itsExpand

Bacterial decimation times in anaerobic digestions of animal slurries
Abstract The reductions of pathogenic and indicator bacteria in animal slurry subjected to mesophilic (35°C) and thermophilic (53°C) anaerobic digestion have been measured in small-scale, as well asExpand

Role of Flagellin and the Two-Component CheA/CheY System of Listeria monocytogenes in Host Cell Invasion and Virulence
ABSTRACT The flagellum protein flagellin of Listeria monocytogenes is encoded by the flaA gene. Immediately downstream of flaA, two genes, cheY and cheA, encoding products with homology to chemotaxisExpand

Influences of temperature, salinity and starvation on the motility and chemotactic response of Vibrio anguillarum.
The role of growth factors for the motility and chemotaxis of the fish pathogen Vibrio anguillarum was determined. Cells of V. anguillarum were chemotactic to serine in the temperature range 5-25Expand

Increase in the prevalence of oxolinic acid resistant Acinetobacter spp. observed in a stream receiving the effluent from a freshwater trout farm following the treatment with oxolinic acid-medicated
Acinetobacter spp. were used as bacterial indicators to monitor antimicrobial resistance in a freshwater trout farm before and after treatment with oxolinic acid (OA)-medicated feed. The level ofExpand
