JlpA, a novel surface‐exposed lipoprotein specific to Campylobacter jejuni, mediates adherence to host epithelial cells
A 1116 bp open reading frame (ORF), designated jlpA, encoding a novel species‐specific lipoprotein of Campylobacter jejuni TGH9011, was identified from recombinant plasmid pHIP‐O. The jlpA geneExpand
FlaC, a protein of Campylobacter jejuni TGH9011 (ATCC43431) secreted through the flagellar apparatus, binds epithelial cells and influences cell invasion
Type III secretion systems identified in bacterial pathogens of animals and plants transpose effectors and toxins directly into the cytosol of host cells or into the extracellular milieu. Proteins ofExpand
Expression and characterization of Campylobacter jejuni benzoylglycine amidohydrolase (Hippuricase) gene in Escherichia coli.
The basis for the difference between Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli is the presence and expression of the N-benzoylglycine amidohydrolase (hippuricase) gene only in C. jejuni. A pBR322Expand
JlpA of Campylobacter jejuni interacts with surface‐exposed heat shock protein 90α and triggers signalling pathways leading to the activation of NF‐κB and p38 MAP kinase in epithelial cells
Campylobacter jejuni is a leading cause of acute bacterial gastroenteritis in humans. The mechanism by which C. jejuni interacts with host cells, however, is still poorly understood. Our previousExpand
Campylobacter upsaliensis: Waiting in the Wings
SUMMARY Despite strong epidemiological evidence supporting an important role for Campylobacter upsaliensis as a human enteropathogen, it remains relatively unknown in the realm of clinicalExpand
Phylogenetic and molecular characterization of a 23S rRNA gene positions the genus Campylobacter in the epsilon subdivision of the Proteobacteria and shows that the presence of transcribed spacers is
The nucleotide sequence of a 23S rRNA gene of Campylobacter coli VC167 was determined. The primary sequence of the C. coli 23S rRNA was deduced, and a secondary-structure model was constructed.Expand
Cloning and transcription regulation of the ferric uptake regulatory gene of Campylobacter jejuni TGH9011.
A Campylobacter jejuni (Cj) TGH9011 (ATCC 43431) gene homologous to the Escherichia coli ferric uptake regulatory gene (fur) has been cloned and characterized. Cj fur encodes a polypeptide consistingExpand
Campylobacter jejuni Mediated Disruption of Polarized Epithelial Monolayers is Cell-Type Specific, Time Dependent, and Correlates With Bacterial Invasion
The precise mechanism by which the most common cause of bacterial enterocolitis in humans, Campylobacter jejuni, perturbs the intestinal mucosa remains elusive. To define effects of C. jejuniExpand
Campylobacter hyoilei Alderton et al. 1995 and Campylobacter coli Véron and Chatelain 1973 are subjective synonyms.
The taxonomic affiliation of Campylobacter hyoilei was reevaluated by examining a variety of phenotypic and genotypic criteria. Whole-cell protein electrophoresis and a comparison of 66 phenotypicExpand
Mammalian cells with altered forms of RNA polymerase II.
Mutants of Chinese hamster ovary cells that are resistant to alpha-amanitin can be isolated. At least some of these mutants contain an altered form of DNA-dependent RNA polymerase II, as indicated byExpand
