Deletion of peb4 gene impairs cell adhesion and biofilm formation in Campylobacter jejuni.
Proteomic analysis revealed that the expression levels of proteins involved in various adhesion, transport, and motility functions, which are required for biofilm formation by the pathogen, were lower in the peb4 mutant than in the wild-type strain.
Gene expression profile of Vibrio cholerae in the cold stress-induced viable but non-culturable state.
This is the first report of a comprehensive transcriptome analysis of V. cholerae in the VBNC state and the significance of this gene expression profile compared with those of in vivo isolates and non-stressed bacteria (culturable in vitro) is its potential to provide information about the public health risk from dormant bacteria.
An outbreak of food-borne listeriosis due to cheese in Japan, during 2001.
Immunogenicity and protective efficacy of orally administered recombinant Lactococcus lactis expressing surface-bound HIV Env.
The protective efficacy of this recombinant L lactis vector expressing the envelope protein of HIV on its cell surface was demonstrated by challenging mice intraperitoneally with an HIV Env-expressing vaccinia virus and their viral loads were 350-fold lower than those of control mice.
Complete Genome Sequence of the Probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus ATCC 53103
The finished and annotated genome sequence of L. rhamnosus ATCC 53103 is reported, one of the most widely used and well-documented probiotics.
Differential expression of the outer membrane protein W (OmpW) stress response in enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli O157:H7 corresponds to the viable but non-culturable state.

Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) O157 strain F2, a food isolate of an outbreak, is resistant to oxidative stress, but has increased stress‐sensitivity after passage through mice, indicating that the cells enter a viable but non‐culturable (VBNC) state.

No clear difference in the extracellular enzyme or toxin profiles, nor in the PFGE patterns, was demonstrated between the OE and non-OE isolates of S. coagulans, a recent etiologic agent of canine OE.
Genomic Adaptation of the Lactobacillus casei Group
The complete genome sequences of L. rhamnosus and L. paracasei will provide valuable insights into the evolution of the L. casei group, and the genome of ATCC 53103 is re-annotated, confirming that ATCC 393 is distinct from other strains previously described as L. PARACasei.
