Twenty-one Vibrio parahaemolyticus isolates representing 21 samples of coastal seawater from three beaches in peninsular Malaysia were found to be sensitive to streptomycin, norfloxacin and chloramphenicol. Resistance was observed to penicillin (100%), ampicillin (95.2%), carbenicilin (95.2%), erythromycin (95.2%), bacitracin (71.4%), cephalothin (28.6%),(More)
Three hundred and ninety-one consecutive heptapeptides derived from the VP6 protein of bovine rotavirus (397 AA) were synthesized using the "pepscan" method and were assayed on the synthesis pins with monoclonal antibodies to VP6. Heptapeptides reactive with MAbs were located in four main regions: regions AA 32-64, AA 155-167, AA 208-274, and a fourth(More)
Chemical cleavage of the VP6 protein of bovine rotavirus showed that VP6-specific monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) reacted with the amino acid sequence between glycine 48 and asparagine 107. Furthermore, three synthetic peptides (amino acids 48 to 64, 60 to 75 and 91 to 108) containing part of this sequence and 22 consecutive overlapping heptapeptides(More)
Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a foodborne pathogen and their human infection is regularly associated with the consumption of raw or undercooked seafood and contaminated water supplies. Many conventional biochemical identification and confirmation procedures are performed to detect the presence of this pathogen, both from seafood or environmental samples.(More)
