BACKGROUND Primary pyogenic liver abscess (PLA) with septic complication by Klebsiella pneumoniae is an emerging infectious disease. METHODS AND RESULTS Using DNA microarray hybridization, we identified a 20-kb chromosomal region that contained 15 open-reading frames (ORFs), including an iron-uptake system (kfu), a phosphoenolpyruvate sugar(More)
Klebsiella pneumoniae liver abscess with metastatic complications is an emerging infectious disease in Taiwan. To identify genes associated with liver infection, we used a DNA microarray to compare the transcriptional profiles of three strains causing liver abscess and three strains not associated with liver infection. There were 13 clones that showed(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Klebsiella pneumoniae liver abscess with metastatic complications is an emerging infectious disease in Taiwan. The present study aimed to identify virulence genes involved in the pathogenicity of K. pneumoniae. METHODS The closely related Escherichia coli genome array was employed to study the expression of the putative genome of K.(More)
