When Salmonella enterica invades mammalian cells, it activates signals leading to increased expression of inflammatory mediators. One such mediator is nitric oxide (NO), which is produced under control of the enzyme inducible NO synthase (iNOS). Induction of iNOS in response to Salmonella infection has been demonstrated, but the bacterial effector molecules(More)
AIMS Different indicator enzymes and fluorogenic or chromogenic substrates were compared as detector systems in a novel polymyxin-based enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for Escherichia coli O157 lipopolysaccharide (LPS) antigens. METHODS AND RESULTS An ELISA system was developed using polymyxin immobilized in the wells of a microtitre plate as a(More)
Polymyxin-based enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (polymyxin-ELISA) systems were developed for the detection of Escherichia coli O111 and O26 in ground beef after enrichment. Polymyxin immobilized in the wells of a microtiter plate served as a high affinity adsorbent for lipopolysaccharide (LPS) antigens, which were detected immunoenzymatically using(More)
An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) system was developed using polymyxin immobilized in the wells of a microtiter plate as a high-affinity adsorbent for Escherichia coli O157 lipopolysaccharide (LPS) antigens. Extracts from cell suspensions were reacted with polymyxin-coated microwells followed by immunoenzymatic detection of captured LPS antigens(More)
Transformants of Fusarium graminearum were derived using linearized DNA of plasmids designed to replace the trichodiene synthase gene, a cutinase gene or a xylanase gene with a hygromycin-resistance marker cassette by homologous recombination between 1-kbp segments of flanking DNA. Most transformants did not exhibit the DNA structure expected of integration(More)
