Six broad-host-range plasmid vectors were developed to study gene expression in Bartonella henselae. The vectors were used to express a beta-galactosidase reporter gene in B. henselae and to generate antisense RNA for gene knockdown. When applied to ompR, a putative transcription response regulator of B. henselae, this antisense RNA gene knockdown strategy(More)
Streptococcus pneumoniae is an invasive organism that causes a wide range of common diseases, including sinusitis, acute otitis media, and pneumonia. Splenic abscesses and purpura fulminans (PF) are rare complications of pneumococcal disease. Splenic abscesses caused by S pneumoniae have only been reported in the adult literature. PF has been described in(More)
