Brucella suis urease encoded by ure1 but not ure2 is necessary for intestinal infection of BALB/c mice

Abstract

In prokaryotes, the ureases are multi-subunit, nickel-containing enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of urea to carbon dioxide and ammonia. The Brucella genomes contain two urease operons designated as ure 1 and ure 2. We investigated the role of the two Brucella suis urease operons on the infection, intracellular persistence, growth, and resistance to low… (More)
