TWO Ogawa strains of V. cholerae maintained for six months in the laboratory by fortnightly subculture on agar slopes, and two Inaba strains maintained similarly for about eighteen months have been used for this study. All the strains, which were smooth, were checked for their identity and particularly for their inability to lyse sheep red blood cells. 5 ml. of an 18-hr. culture of each strain in Dunham's peptone water medium was aseptically transferred to a 1-litre Roux bottle containing 200… Expand
Experimental canine cholera. II. Production by cell-free culture filtrates of Vibrio cholerae.
TLDR
The present paper will describe the production of cholera in dogs challenged with V. cholerae, Inaba 569B, grown under varying cultural conditions. Expand
Vibrio mimicus with multiple toxin types isolated from human and environmental sources.
TLDR
This study was able to identify strains of V. mimicus that produced, or had the genetic potential to produce, several toxin types simultaneously, and the role of these strains as genetic reservoirs is discussed. Expand
Toxin(s), other than cholera toxin, produced by environmental non O1 non O139 Vibrio cholerae.
A total of 39 Vibrio cholerae non O1 non O139 strains were isolated from surface waters of different parts of Dhaka City, Bangladesh. All these strains showed lack of ctx or zot gene, as demonstratedExpand
Vibrio cholerae 1 Description Taxonomy and serological classification
    Description Taxonomy and serological classification Vibrio cholerae, a member of the family Vibrionaceae, is a facultatively anaero-bic, Gram-negative, non-spore-forming curved rod, about 1.4–2.6 mmExpand
    Antitoxic immunity in experimental canine cholera.
    TLDR
    The canine data suggest that the major pathophysiological derangements in cholera are caused by a toxin1 elaborated by the vibrio and confirm earlier studies in the rabbit model in this regard. Expand
    DISCUSSION: THE CHOLERA ENTEROTOXIN AND LOCAL IMMUNITY *
    TLDR
    Substantially concurrent studies with enteropathogenic coliforms, beginning with the work of De in India and of Taylor lo, z1 in England with coliform strains of human origin, and by others in this country, Canada, and England were, therefore, of particular interest. Expand
    Purification and Characterization of Novel Toxin Produced by Vibrio cholerae O1
    TLDR
    It is indicated that WO7 toxin is structurally and functionally distinct from other cholera toxins and that the enterotoxic activities expressed by WO6 toxin appear to contribute to the pathogenesis of disease associated with V. cholerae O1 strains. Expand
    THE CHOLERA FAMILY OF ENTEROTOXINS
    TLDR
    Efforts to prevent the spread of cholera focus on improving sanitation, protecting water supplies, and developing effective vaccines, which have failed to provide long-term immunity. Expand
    Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli
    TLDR
    Investigation of pathogen-host interactions reveal a surprisingly complex and intricately orchestrated engagement involving the interplay of classical and “novel” virulence genes, as well as participation of genes highly conserved in the E. coli species. Expand
    Protective Antigens of Vibrio Cholerae
    The disease cholera in the epidemic form is mainly caused by the gram- negative bacterium Vibrio cholerae, belonging to the 01 serovar. The or-ganism also exists in two serotypes (Inaba and Ogawa)Expand
