Mycoplasma gallisepticum is an etiologic agent of chronic respiratory disease in chickens and infectious sinusitis in turkeys. Other than proteins important for cytadherence, few M. gallisepticum factors or pathways contributing to host cell interactions have been identified. In this study, an oligonucleotide-based microarray was utilized to investigate transcriptional changes in M. gallisepticum strain R(low) upon exposure to eukaryotic cells. Fifty-eight genes were either up- or downregulated… CONTINUE READING
