Amoebae and algae can prolong the survival of Campylobacter species in co-culture.
Several species of free-living amoebae can cause disease in humans. However, in addition to the direct pathogenicity of e.g. Acanthamoebae and Naegleria species, they are recognized as environmentalExpand

Ceramide as a TLR4 agonist; a putative signalling intermediate between sphingolipid receptors for microbial ligands and TLR4
Mucosal Toll‐like receptors (TLRs) respond to pathogens, but remain inert to the indigenous flora, suggesting that the TLRs can receive pathogen‐specific signals. For example, TLR4 signalling isExpand

Increase in Acid Tolerance of Campylobacter jejuni through Coincubation with Amoebae
ABSTRACT Campylobacter jejuni is a recognized and common gastrointestinal pathogen in most parts of the world. Human infections are often food borne, and the bacterium is frequent among poultry andExpand

Campylobacter jejuni Actively Invades the Amoeba Acanthamoeba polyphaga and Survives within Non Digestive Vacuoles
The Gram-negative bacterium Campylobacter jejuni is able to enter, survive and multiply within the free living amoeba Acanthamoeba polyphaga, but the molecular mechanisms behind these events areExpand

Acanthamoeba-Campylobacter Coculture as a Novel Method for Enrichment of Campylobacter Species
ABSTRACT In this study, we present a novel method to isolate and enrich low concentrations of Campylobacter pathogens. This method, Acanthamoeba-Campylobacter coculture (ACC), is based on theExpand

Characterization of clinical Campylobacter jejuni isolates with special emphasis on lipooligosaccharide locus class, putative virulence factors and host response.
Recent studies have indicated a role of the lipooligosaccharide (LOS) of Campylobacter jejuni in the severe neurological Guillain Barré syndrome, as well as in development of more severe symptoms ofExpand
