Pertussis toxin (PT) and filamentous hemagglutinin (FHA) were purified from culture supernatant of Bordetella pertussis Saadet and Tohama strains, using CM-Sepharose CL-6B cation-exchange chromatography. By the rapid purification method described here, both proteins were separately eluted from the same column in pure forms. The PT and FHA in the extract of(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to demonstrate the occurrence of potential pathogenic Vibrio parahaemolyticus in seafoods using DNA-based techniques in comparison with bacteriological methods. METHODS AND RESULTS From 120 fresh and processed fish and mussel samples collected from Middle Black Sea, 32 isolates were identified as V. parahaemolyticus by(More)
Mycoplasma gallisepticum is the primary agent of chronic respiratory disease causing important economic losses in the poultry industry. Serological monitoring is essential to maintain mycoplasma-free breeder flocks and often complicated by the cross-reactions between different mycoplasma species. To overcome serological cross-reactions, a large fragment of(More)
The present study aimed to produce the relatively conserved central fragment of the Mycoplasma gallisepticum PvpA cytadhesin as recombinant antigen and to determine its species-specific diagnostic potential in comparison with the full-length recombinant rPvpA336 protein. For this purpose, a recombinant protein (rPvpA134) consisting of 134 amino acids with(More)
