Listeria monocytogenes is one of the most important foodborne pathogens causing severe diseases with a mortality rate of 24%. However, the genetic diversity and evolution of L. monocytogenes, particularly at the worldwide level, are poorly defined. In this study, we performed multilocus sequence typing (MLST) and multi virulence locus sequence typing… (More)
Listeria monocytogenes is an important foodborne pathogen that causes infections in humans and animals and has a high mortality rate. The complete genome sequence of L. monocytogenes strain NTSN, a highly virulent and serovar 4b strain isolated from the brains of sheep in Jiangsu Province, China, is presented here.
OBJECTIVE Tuberculosis is a chronic infectious disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex. Hence, novel vaccines against TB are urgently needed and important to the public health. METHODS Immunobiologic characteristics of a recombinant attenuated Listeria monocytogenes strain LMdeltahly: :Ag85b-esat-6 was evaluated. RESULTS LMdeltahly:… (More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate specific immune responses elicited by a recombinant Listeria monocytogenes strain LM4 deltahly::E7 and assess protective effect in C57BL/6 mice. METHODS C57BL/6 mice were intraperitoneally immunized with LM4 deltahly:: E7 at 1-week intervals. After the second immunization, cellular immunity elicited by this recombinant L.… (More)
OBJECTIVE Gram-positive brevibacterium Listeria monocytogenes (Lm) is an important zoonotic foodborne pathogen, engaged in both saprophytism and parasitism. It could adapt, survive and display pathogenicity under different environmental stress challenges, which is associated with the regulatory network consisting of regulating factors. The biological… (More)
