The presence and restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) of DNA fragments hybridizing with virulence and "house keeping" gene probes were analyzed for 87 group B streptococcal (GBS) strains of human and bovine origin. Most characteristics obtained for bovine strains were similar when compared with those for human strains. The most significant degree(More)
The first pan-European harmonized active epidemiological surveillance program on honeybee colony mortality (EPILOBEE) was set up across 17 European Member States to estimate honeybee colony mortality over winter and during the beekeeping season. In nine Member States, overwinter losses were higher and statistically different from the empirical level of 10 %(More)
Holko I. The main goal of our work was to solve the problems of normative diagnostic method for the detection of Listeria monocytogenes in foods by STN ISO 10560 (1999), i.e. to shorten the long time of analysis (5-10 days) and differentiate the non-haemolysed strains of Listeria monocytogenes from non-pathogenic Listeria innocua yielding the same results(More)
Nineteen serogroup 1/2a Listeria monocytogenes strains isolated from raw milk, dairy products and salt water in one dairy were analyzed. Pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) and ribotyping were used to determine whether these strains isolated over a 8-month period are epidemiologically related. The samples of raw milk were contaminated by different L.(More)
In this review data on the pathogenicity factors of streptococci and their genetic control are presented. Attention is paid mainly to protein antigens alpha and beta, C5a peptidase, CAMP factor, R, Rib and X proteins. The problems of making the genetic and physical charts of the genome of group B streptococci, the genetic regulation of the synthesis of(More)
