DC-SIGN Is the Major Mycobacterium tuberculosis Receptor on Human Dendritic Cells
Early interactions between lung dendritic cells (LDCs) and Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the etiological agent of tuberculosis, are thought to be critical for mounting a protective anti-mycobacterialExpand

The Cell Surface Receptor DC-SIGN Discriminates betweenMycobacterium Species through Selective Recognition of the Mannose Caps on Lipoarabinomannan*
Interactions between dendritic cells (DCs) and Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the etiological agent of tuberculosis, most likely play a key role in anti-mycobacterial immunity. We have recently shownExpand

Evaluation of Three Techniques for Detection of Low-Level Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA): a Disk Diffusion Method with Cefoxitin and Moxalactam, the Vitek 2 System, and the
ABSTRACT Very-low-level methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), or class 1 MRSA, is often misdiagnosed as methicillin-susceptible S. aureus (MSSA). We evaluated the performances of threeExpand

Constrained Intracellular Survival of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in Human Dendritic Cells 1
Dendritic cells (DCs) are likely to play a key role in immunity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis, but the fate of the bacterium in these cells is still unknown. Here we report that, unlikeExpand

Molecular epidemiology of Klebsiella pneumoniae strains that produce SHV-4 beta-lactamase and which were isolated in 14 French hospitals.
Preliminary results suggested that the diffusion in France of the SHV-4 extended-spectrum beta-lactamase was probably due to the spread of one single epidemic strain of Klebsiella pneumoniae. In thisExpand

Explosion of tuberculin-specific Th1-responses induces immune restoration syndrome in tuberculosis and HIV co-infected patients
Objectives:To test the hypothesis that an acute exacerbation of mycobacteria-specific Th1 response after HIV infection control by HAART causes immune restoration syndrome (IRS) in HIV–tuberculosisExpand

Deciphering the molecular bases of Mycobacterium tuberculosis binding to the lectin DC-SIGN reveals an underestimated complexity.
Interactions between dendritic cells and Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the aetiological agent of tuberculosis in humans, are thought to be central to anti-mycobacterial immunity. We have previouslyExpand

Salmonella enteritidis: AmpC Plasmid-Mediated Inducible β-Lactamase (DHA-1) with anampR Gene from Morganella morganii
ABSTRACT DHA-1, a plasmid-mediated cephalosporinase from a single clinicalSalmonella enteritidis isolate, conferred resistance to oxyimino-cephalosporins (cefotaxime and ceftazidime) and cephamycinsExpand

Molecular characterisation by PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism of TEM beta-lactamases.
To rapidly characterise TEM-derived extended-spectrum beta-lactamases a fast and easy method using polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism was developed. This method wasExpand

A Novel Integron in Salmonella enterica Serovar Enteritidis, Carrying the blaDHA-1 Gene and Its Regulator Gene ampR, Originated fromMorganella morganii
ABSTRACT The genetic organization of the gene coding for DHA-1 and the corresponding ampR gene was determined by PCR mapping. These genes have been mobilized from the Morganella morganii chromosomeExpand
