In order to help radiologists differentiate viral infections, viruses in the same viridae that have similar pathogenesis and can have similar imaging characteristics are shown.
Identification and characterization of the Vibrio vulnificus rtxA essential for cytotoxicity in vitro and virulence in mice.
The functions of the rtxA gene, assessed by constructing an isogenic mutant and evaluating its phenotypic changes, demonstrated that RtxA is essential for the virulence of V. vulnificus in mice as well as in tissue cultures.
Contribution of dps to Acid Stress Tolerance and Oxidative Stress Tolerance in Escherichia coli O157:H7
It is established that Dps contributes to acid tolerance in E. coli O157:H7 and confirmed the importance of Dps in oxidative stress protection and implementation of the mutant with a functional dps gene restored acid and hydrogen peroxide tolerance to levels equal to or greater than those exhibited by the parent strain.
Identification of a new subfamily of salt-tolerant esterases from a metagenomic library of tidal flat sediment
It is demonstrated that the metagenomic approach using marine tidal flat sediment as a DNA source expanded the diversity of lipolytic enzyme-encoding genes.
Detection of qnr in Clinical Isolates of Escherichia coli from Korea
ABSTRACT qnr was detected in 2 of 260 Escherichia coli clinical isolates collected from a Korean hospital during the period 2001 to 2003. The two strains were not clonally related. qnr was located in…
Vibrio vulnificus RTX toxin plays an important role in the apoptotic death of human intestinal epithelial cells exposed to Vibrio vulnificus.
Vibrio vulnificus rtxE Is Important for Virulence, and Its Expression Is Induced by Exposure to Host Cells
It is demonstrated that the rtxBDE genes are transcribed as one transcriptional unit under the control of a single promoter, PrtxB DE, indicating that RtxE is essential for the virulence of V. vulnificus.
Paradoxical responses in non-HIV-infected patients with peripheral lymph node tuberculosis.
Vibrio vulnificus Has the Transmembrane Transcription Activator ToxRS Stimulating the Expression of the Hemolysin GenevvhA
Results demonstrate that ToxR(Vv) may regulate the virulence expression of V. vulnificus and show a reversed outer membrane protein expression profile in comparison to the isogenic wild-type strain.
