Pseudomonas aeruginosa Population Structure Revisited
At present there are strong indications that Pseudomonas aeruginosa exhibits an epidemic population structure; clinical isolates are indistinguishable from environmental isolates, and they do notExpand
Some coagulase-negative Staphylococcus species affect udder health more than others.
A longitudinal study in 3 dairy herds was conducted to profile the distribution of coagulase-negative Staphylococcus (CNS) species causing bovine intramammary infection (IMI) using molecularExpand
Rapid identification of bacteria of the Comamonadaceae with amplified ribosomal DNA-restriction analysis (ARDRA).
Ribosomal rRNA gene fragments (rDNA) encompassing the 16S rDNA, the 16S-23S rDNA spacer region and part of the 23S rDNA of 95 strains belonging to 13 well-described taxa of the eubacterial familyExpand
Active Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis can be specifically diagnosed and monitored based on the biostructure of the fecal flora
Background: The intestinal microflora is important in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The impact of its spatial organization on health and disease is unknown. Methods: WeExpand
Identification of Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis isolates from sheep and goats by PCR.
The present study was carried out to estimate the prevalence of caseous lymphadenitis (CL) in sheep and goats slaughtered at the local abattoir in Elazig province located in the east of Turkey,Expand
Staphylococcus pseudintermedius sp. nov., a coagulase-positive species from animals.
Four staphylococcal isolates from clinical and necropsy specimens from a cat, a dog, a horse and a parrot (Psittacus erithacus timneh) were found to constitute a distinct taxon. 16S rRNA geneExpand
Species-Level Identification of Isolates of the Acinetobacter calcoaceticus-Acinetobacter baumannii Complex by Sequence Analysis of the 16S-23S rRNA Gene Spacer Region
ABSTRACT The species Acinetobacter calcoaceticus, A. baumannii, genomic species 3, and genomic species 13TU included in the Acinetobacter calcoaceticus-Acinetobacter baumannii complex are geneticallyExpand
Identification of Acinetobacter genomic species by amplified ribosomal DNA restriction analysis.
A total of 53 field and reference strains, including the type strains of the seven named species (nomenspecies) and belonging to the 18 described genomic species (DNA groups) of the genusExpand
Distribution of Acinetobacter species on human skin: comparison of phenotypic and genotypic identification methods.
At least 19 genomic species are recognized as constituting the genus Acinetobacter. However, little is known about the natural reservoirs of the various members of the genus. An epidemiological studyExpand
Emended description of Gardnerella vaginalis and description of Gardnerella leopoldii sp. nov., Gardnerella piotii sp. nov. and Gardnerella swidsinskii sp. nov., with delineation of 13 genomic
Whole genome sequence analysis (digital DNA-DNA hybridization and average nucleotide identity) was carried out for 81 sequenced full genomes of the genus Gardnerella, including ten determined in thisExpand
