Mutations in the genes recA and recBC were constructed in the virulent Salmonella typhimurium strain 14028s. Both the recA and recBC mutants were attenuated in mice. The mutants were also sensitive to killing by macrophages in vitro. The recombination mutants were no longer macrophage sensitive in a variant line of J774 macrophage‐like cells that fail to generate superoxide. This suggests that repair of DNA damage by Salmonella is necessary for full virulence in vivo and that the oxidative… 
Role of the RecBCD Recombination Pathway in Salmonella Virulence
TLDR
It is proposed that systemic infection by S. enterica may require RecBCD-mediated recombinational repair to prime DNA replication inside phagocytes, and exonucleases V and IX provide alternative functions for Rec BCD- mediated recombinational Repair during Salmonella infection.
The role of DNA base excision repair in the pathogenesis of Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium
TLDR
Data indicate that DNA oxidation is a mechanism that macrophages use to damage intracellular Salmonella, and suggest that BER‐mediated repair of this damage may be important in the establishment ofSalmonella infection.
The transcriptional regulator SoxS is required for resistance of Salmonella typhimurium to paraquat but not for virulence in mice
TLDR
In Escherichia coli, the SoxRS regulon is required for resistance to redox-cycling agents which elevate cytosolic superoxide levels, and in Salmonella typhimurium, SoxS is also required for enhanced expression of Mn-superoxide dismutase and resistance to paraquat.
Characterization of Escherichia coli DNA Lesions Generated within J774 Macrophages
TLDR
It is found that under these conditions, early in the infection the majority of E. coli cells are viable but gene expression is inhibited, and protection against the macrophage-induced DNA damage is an important component of the bacterial defense mechanism within macrophages.
Attenuated Salmonella typhimurium htrA mutants cause fatal infections in mice deficient in NADPH oxidase and destroy NADPH oxidase-deficient macrophage monolayers.
TLDR
The present results suggest that htrA is somehow involved in resistance to oxidative stress in vivo, with the avirulence of htrC mutants in mice being due to mechanisms which involve NADPH oxidase and suppression of bacterial growth within macrophages.
Effect of mutS and recDMutations on Salmonella Virulence
ABSTRACT Hybrid derivatives of closely related bacteria may be used to dissect strain-specific functions that contribute to virulence within a host. However, mismatches between DNA sequences are a
Salmonella typhimurium loci involved in survival within macrophages
TLDR
16 insertions define loci, termed ims for impaired macrophage survival, which have not yet been described in S. typhimurium but have been shown previously to be necessary for full virulence in mice.
Overexpression of the recA Gene Decreases Oral but Not Intraperitoneal Fitness of Salmonella enterica
TLDR
These data demonstrate that an equilibrium between the intracellular concentrations of RecA and CheW is necessary for swarming in S. enterica, and are the first to point out that the SOS response plays a critical role in the prevention of DNA damage by abolishing bacterialSwarming in the presence of a genotoxic compound.
Molecular Characterization of the Prototrophic Salmonella Mutants Defective for Intraepithelial Replication
TLDR
Three MudJ prototrophs demonstrated that intracellular replication is a Salmonella virulence trait and loss of Salmoneella pathogenicity island 2 function underlies the intrACEllular replication defect of 3-11 and 17-21.
Contribution of TonB- and Feo-mediated iron uptake to growth of Salmonella typhimurium in the mouse
TLDR
Results indicate that TonB-mediated iron uptake contributes to colonization of the Peyer's patches and mesenteric lymph nodes but not the liver and spleen of the mouse, indicating that additional iron acquisition systems are used during growth at systemic sites of infection.

Salmonella typhimurium is a facultative intracellular pathogen capable of surviving within phagocytic cells of the reticuloendothelial system. To identify the genes important for intracellular
Intracellular survival of wild-type Salmonella typhimurium and macrophage-sensitive mutants in diverse populations of macrophages
TLDR
It is demonstrated that survival of S. typhimurium within macrophages varies with the source of cells, with a distinct ability to survive in macrophage from mouse spleens, where S. Typhimurio grows rapidly.
A Salmonella locus that controls resistance to microbicidal proteins from phagocytic cells.
TLDR
A gene of the intracellular pathogen Salmonella typhimurium that is required for virulence and intrACEllular survival was identified and shown to have a role in resistance to defensins and possibly to other microbicidal mechanisms of the phagocyte.
Genetic control of the innate resistance of mice to Salmonella typhimurium: expression of the Ity gene in peritoneal and splenic macrophages isolated in vitro.
TLDR
It is demonstrated directly that Ity is expressed by the macrophage and shown for the first time with Ity congeneic mice that the basis for differential net growth of virulent S. typhimurium in Ityr and Itys macrophages is a variation in the degree of bacterial kill.

TLDR
Using an in vitro system, a genetic locus is isolated that confers to a noninvasive strain of Salmonella typhimurium the ability to penetrate tissue culture cells and show decreased ability to colonize the Peyer's patches, the small intestinal wall, and the spleen when administered perorally and intraperitoneally.
Characterization of porin and ompR mutants of a virulent strain of Salmonella typhimurium: ompR mutants are attenuated in vivo
TLDR
OmpR mutants failed to kill BALB/c mice after oral challenge and the intravenous 50% lethal dose was reduced by approximately 10(5), and mice orally immunized with these ompR mutant strains were well protected against challenge with virulent SL1344.
Aromatic-dependent Salmonella typhimurium are non-virulent and effective as live vaccines
TLDR
The use of a tetracycline-resistance transposon, Tn10 (refs 5, 6), inserted in gene aroA to produce non-reverting, aromatic-requiring derivatives of virulent S. typhimurium strains were virtually non-virulent; their use as live vaccines conferred excellent protection against challenge with a virulent strain.
Positive control of a regulon for defenses against oxidative stress and some heat-shock proteins in Salmonella typhimurium
TLDR
The oxyR regulatory network is a previously uncharacterized global regulatory system in enteric bacteria that is resistant to a variety of oxidizing agents and overexpresses at least five enzyme activities involved in defenses against oxidative damage.
INFECTION-IMMUNITY IN EXPERIMENTAL SALMONELLOSIS
TLDR
Immunization of mice with increasing doses of living Salmonella montevideo resulted in progressively greater killing of a challenge dose of S. enteritidis despite the absence of common somatic antigens between the two strains, and the degree of protection varied with the size of the residual population ofS.
