AIMS To study the antibiogram of 40 seafood isolates of Salmonella and use of PCR to detect the presence of integrons and genes coding for antibiotic resistance. METHODS AND RESULTS In this study, 40 isolates of Salmonella were used for antibiogram analysis. The multidrug-resistant isolates were analyzed for the presence of integron using(More)
UNLABELLED Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a seafood-borne pathogen autochthonous to the marine and estuarine ecosystem, responsible for gastroenteritis when contaminated raw seafood is consumed. The pathogenicity has been associated with thermostable direct haemolysin (TDH) and TDH-related haemolysin (TRH). Of late, the presence of T3SS2α and T3SS2β gene(More)
Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a seafood-borne pathogen autochthonous to the marine and estuarine ecosystem, which is responsible for gastroenteritis due to the consumption of contaminated raw seafood. Here, we report the draft genome sequence of V. parahaemolyticus VP-49, isolated from seafood, to identify the different virulence attributes and to study the(More)
Salmonella enterica serovars are virulent pathogens of humans and animals with many strains possessing multiple drug resistance traits. They have been found to carry resistance to ampicillin, chloramphenicol, florfenicol, streptomycin, sulfonamides, and tetracycline (ACSSuT-resistant). A rapid and sensitive multiplex PCR (mPCR)-based assay was developed for(More)
Antimicrobial-resistant salmonellosis is a significant public health concern globally. A study was conducted to screen for Salmonella species from a total of 120 samples, of which 50 were retail meat samples purchased from five randomly selected sales outlets in the city of Mangalore, India. Twenty poultry fecal materials freshly voided before slaughter(More)
Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Weltevereden is the most frequent serovar isolated from Asia. Here, we report a draft genome sequence of multidrug resistant Salmonella Weltevreden 9 isolated from seafood. Whole-genome of this isolate and annotation will help enhance the understanding of this pathogenic multidrug-resistant serovar.
AIMS To investigate the differential expression of virulence genes and role of gyrA mutations in quinolone resistant and susceptible strains of Salmonella isolated from seafood. METHODS AND RESULTS Forty Salmonella isolates from seafood were tested for antibiotic sensitivity. Minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) was determined and two nalidixic(More)
