AIMS To determine the presence of toxin genes in 22 Clostridium perfringens isolated from turkey meat samples by molecular typing. METHODS AND RESULTS For this purpose, alpha (cpa), beta (cpb), beta 2 (cpb2), epsilon (etx), iota (iA) and enterotoxin (cpe) toxin genes were analysed by multiplex PCR. All 22 turkey meat Cl. perfringens isolates were found to(More)
A total of 102 Escherichia coli O157:H7 colonies recovered from 11 cattle and 14 sheep were collected and tested for their antibiotic resistance profiles using a disc diffusion method, according to the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute. Four (36.36 %) of the 11 cattle E. coli O157:H7 isolates were resistant to cephalothin, one (9.09 %) isolate was(More)
A total of 200 bile samples of cattle collected from two slaughterhouses from May to September 2007 were analyzed by immunomagnetic separation (IMS)-based cultivation technique. Two (1.0%) of the samples were found to be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7. One of the two isolates was found to carry all five virulence genes (fliC h7 , stx 1 , stx 2 , eaeA and(More)
The aim of the study was to find out the serotype distribution of 169 Salmonella colonies recovered from 112 Salmonella positive ground turkey (115 colonies) and 52 turkey meat parts (54 colonies). Out of 15 Salmonella serotypes: S. Corvallis, S. Kentucky, S. Bredeney, S. Virchow, S. Saintpaul and S. Agona were identified as the predominant serovars at the(More)
