BACKGROUND Shigellosis is a major public health concern worldwide, especially in developing countries. It is an acute intestinal infection caused by bacteria of the genus Shigella, with a minimum infective dose as low as 10-100 bacterial cells. Increasing prevalence of Shigella sonnei as the etiologic agent of shigellosis in Malaysia has been reported. As(More)
One hundred and fourteen strains of Pasteurella multocida were isolated from different domestic animals species (cattle, buffalo, sheep, goat, pig, rabbit, dog, cat), avian species (chicken, duck, turkey) and wild animals (deer, tiger, orang utan, marmoset). The serogroups of P. multocida were determined by both conventional capsular serotyping and a(More)
Kosakonia radicincitans (formerly known as Enterobacter radicincitans), an endophytic bacterium was isolated from the symptomatic tissues of bacterial wilt diseased banana (Musa spp.) plant in Malaysia. The total genome size of K. radicincitans UMEnt01/12 is 5 783 769 bp with 5463 coding sequences (CDS), 75 tRNAs, and 9 rRNAs. The annotated draft genome of(More)
A blood disease pathogenic strain, Ralstonia syzygii subspecies celebesensis was used to study the possible association of biofilm-forming bacteria with the development and severity of blood disease in banana plants. Therefore, the objective of this study was to determine the effects of mono-culture and co-culture inoculation of isolated biofilm-forming(More)
During meiosis and spore formulation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, changes that occur in a/alpha diploids, but not in isogenic nonsporulating a/a diploids, have been detected in cellular polypeptides. These were found by the technique of prelabeling growing cells with 35SO4(2-) and suspending them in sulfur-free sporulation medium. Under the conditions used,(More)
Banana is one of the most important fruits cultivated in Malaysia, and it provides many health benefits. However, bacterial wilt disease, which attacks bananas, inflicts major losses on the banana industry in Malaysia. To understand the complex interactions of the microbiota of bacterial wilt-diseased banana plants, we first determined the bacterial(More)
