The life cycle of Plasmodium falciparum is very complex, with an erythrocytic stage that involves the invasion of red blood cells and the survival and growth of the parasite within the host. Over the past several decades, numbers of studies have shown that proteins exported by P. falciparum to the surface of infected red blood cells play a critical role in(More)
Fecal samples were collected from diarrheic camel-calves owned by nomadic pastoralists in the Butana Region. They were examined for 5 types of bacteria reported to cause the diarrhea. Sixty nine E. coli (66%), 14 Salmonella spp. (13%) and 11 Clostridium perfringens (10%) isolates were obtained from the samples. However, neither Campylobacter spp. nor(More)
In this study, the effects of wild-type and deletion mutant hepatitis C virus (HCV) core proteins on the induction of immune responses in BALB/c mice were assessed. p2HA-C145-S23, encoding a core protein with the C-terminal 46 amino acids truncated, significantly produced stronger antibody and cellular responses than p2HA-C191-S23. The induction of immune(More)
Staphylococcus aureus with the ability of staphylococcal enterotoxins (SEs) production is one of the most common causes of bacterial foodborne outbreaks worldwide. In our study, 336 S. aureus isolates were recovered from 3476 food samples during 2010-2014. A total of 86 S. aureus isolates were proved to be enterotoxin-producing strains with PCR and(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence and characteristics of staphylococcal enterotoxin B (SEB) producing Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) isolated from food sources. A total of 412 S. aureus isolates were recovered from 1970 milk and dairy samples (n = 236) and 2450 meat samples (n = 176) in China from 2009 to 2014. Of the 412 isolates,(More)
