Campylobacter spp. are one of the leading bacterial etiologic agents of acute human gastroenteritis among industrialized countries. Poultry are implicated as a major source of the organism for human illness; however, the factors involved with colonization of poultry gastrointestinal systems remain unclear. Genomics and proteomics analyses were used to identify differences between poor- versus robust-colonizing Campylobacter jejuni isolates, 11168(GS) and A74/C, respectively. Sequence analyses… CONTINUE READING
