INTRODUCTION Salmonella enterica serotype Kentucky was isolated from septic poultry in Nigeria. The objective of this study was to characterize this isolate by screening for SGI1 and hyper-virulence. METHODOLOGY The strain was characterized by identification of Salmonella genomic island 1 (SGI1) through a PCR assay and we used a tissue culture invasion assay to assess protozoa-mediated hyper-invasion. RESULTS Salmonella genomic island 1 (SGI1) was identified in the strain along with an SGI1… CONTINUE READING
