Streptococcussuis serotype 2 (SS 2) is an important zoonotic pathogen that has caused two major infectious outbreaks of streptococcal toxic shock syndrome (STSS) in China. A novel gene located in the 89K pathogenicity island (PAI) encoding a putative hemolysin-III-related protein (Hhly3) has been previously characterized. In this study, the SS2 deletion(More)
Streptococcus equi ssp. zooepidemicus (SEZ) is responsible for a wide variety of infections in many species, including pigs, horses and humans. Biofilm formation is essential for pathogenesis, and the ability to resist antibiotic treatment results in difficult-to-treat and persistent infections. However, the ability of SEZ to form biofilms is unclear.(More)
Streptococcus equi ssp. zooepidemicus (S. zooepidemicus) is responsible for a wide variety of infections in many species. Fibronectin-binding protein is a bacterial cell surface protein, which specifically binds fibronectin (FN). Considering the specific role of FN-binding protein in host-pathogen interactions, we investigated the function of a novel(More)
Streptococcus suis (SS) is an important zoonotic pathogen causing a variety of life-threatening infections in pigs and humans. Tran, a novel transcriptional regulator which was identified to be an infection-related factor in S. suis serotype 2 using suppression subtractive hybridization (SSH), has been reported by our group. In this study, a tran deletion(More)
