Infections of the udder by Escherichia coli very often elicit acute inflammation, while Staphylococcus aureus infections tend to cause mild, subclinical inflammation and persistent infections. The molecular causes underlying the different disease patterns are poorly understood. We therefore profiled the kinetics and extents of global changes in the(More)
A mutant strain of Escherichia coli K-12, designated 618, accumulates glycogen at a faster rate than wild-type strain 356. The mutation affects the ADPglucose pyrophosphorylase regulatory properties (N. Creuzat-Sigal, M. Latil-Damotte, J. Cattaneo, and J. Puig, p. 647-680, in R. Piras and H. G. Pontis, ed., Biochemistry of the Glycocide Linkage, 1972). The(More)
We examined if and how mammary epithelial cells (MECs) calibrate and confine the intensity of an inflammatory response elicited by different concentrations of mastitis pathogens. Therefore we quantified in primary bovine MEC the effect of different E. coli pathogen concentrations upon the abundance of mRNA molecules encoding factors of immune defence.(More)
