Using an insect model to assess correlation between temperature and virulence in Bacillus weihenstephanensis and Bacillus cereus.

Abstract

The closely related bacterial species Bacillus cereus and Bacillus weihenstephanensis are adapted to the mesophilic and the psychrotrophic temperature range, respectively. While B. cereus strains are associated with foodborne diseases, B. weihenstephanensis strains are so far not, although similar virulence genes are found in both species. Our… (More)
