  journal={PLoS ONE},
Virulence and persistence in the BALB/c mouse gut was tested for 32 strains of Salmonella enterica for which genome sequencing is complete or underway, including 17 serovars within subspecies I (enterica), and two representatives of each of the other five subspecies. Only serovar Paratyphi C strain BAA1715 and serovar Typhimurium strain 14028 were fully virulent in mice. Three divergent atypical Enteritidis strains were not virulent in BALB/c, but two efficiently persisted. Most of the other… 

Comparative phenotypic and genotypic virulence of Salmonella strains isolated from Australian layer farms

Variation in virulence profiles suggest that serovars with low virulence are likely to have both invasion and within host replication defects that ultimately limit their pathogenicity.

Use of Attenuated but Metabolically Competent Salmonella as a Probiotic To Prevent or Treat Salmonella Infection

The fra locus was added to the probiotic bacterium Escherichia coli Nissle 1917 (Nissle) to increase its ability to compete with Salmonella in mouse models to test the hypothesis that probiotic organisms could compete for the preferred nutrient sources ofSalmonella and thus prevent or treat infection.

Systemic responses of BALB/c mice to Salmonella typhimurium infection.

The results indicate that infection leads to a severe impact on mice spleen and ileum, which are characterized by splenomegaly and edematous villi, respectively, and increased levels of itaconic acid were correlated with the presence of splenomesgaly during infection and may play an important role in Salmonella-containing vacuole acidification.

Pathogenicity of Salmonella Strains Isolated from Egg Shells and the Layer Farm Environment in Australia

The aim of the present study was to generate a pathogenicity profile of nontyphoidal Salmonella isolates obtained from Australian egg farms using both in vitro and in vivo model systems, and to expand the knowledge of strain-to-strain variation in the pathogenicicity of Australian egg industry-related Salmoneella spp.

Virulence Gene Profiling and Pathogenicity Characterization of Non-Typhoidal Salmonella Accounted for Invasive Disease in Humans

A common core of virulence genes might be required for invasive salmonellosis, but also an impressive degree of genetic and phenotypic heterogeneity is demonstrated, highlighting that bacteremia is a complex phenotype, which cannot be attributed merely to an enhanced invasion or intracellular growth of a particular strain.

Refined Live Attenuated Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhimurium and Enteritidis Vaccines Mediate Homologous and Heterologous Serogroup Protection in Mice

Findings suggest that a bivalent S. Typhimurium and S. Enteritidis vaccine would provide broad protection against the majority of invasive NTS infections in sub-Saharan Africa.

Factors Affecting Variation in Salmonella Virulence

Transitioning towards whole genome sequencing as an epidemiologic, investigative tool, will reveal more about Salmonella virulence and provide markers for rapid identification of virulent serovar/strain types in foods.

Integrated analysis of population genomics, transcriptomics and virulence provides novel insights into Streptococcus pyogenes pathogenesis

Genome-wide association study, expression quantitative trait loci analysis, machine learning, and isogenic mutant strains identified and confirmed a one-nucleotide indel in an intergenic region that significantly alters global transcript profiles and ultimately virulence.

Prevalence, Characterization, and Pathogenicity of Salmonella enterica Subspecies enterica Serovar Derby from Yaks in the Aba Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, China

Results indicate that the S. Derby from yaks can cause infection in mice and suggest that Salmonella Derby excreted by diarrheic yaks is a source of contamination for other yaks and the environment and is highly pathogenic to mice.

The ability of the vaccine to protect the mice against virulent challenge correlated with the able of the strain to establish a persisting population in the liver and spleen, which revealed extensive growth of S. enteritidis occurred in animals which showed "protection," as assessed by progressive mortality data.

Resistance to Infection with Salmonella paratyphi C in Mice parasitized with a Relatively Avirulent Strain of Salmonella typhimurium

The present communication illustrates that there is also a considerable non-specific element in the resistance produced by avirulent Salm.

Molecular and Phenotypic Analysis of the CS54 Island of Salmonella enterica Serotype Typhimurium: Identification of Intestinal Colonization and Persistence Determinants

Data suggest that colonization of the murine cecum is required for efficient fecal shedding in mice and DNA hybridization analysis revealed that the CS54 island is comprised of two regions with distinct phylogenetic distribution within the genus Salmonella.

Virulence Attenuation and Live Vaccine Potential of aroA, crp cdt cya, and Plasmid-Cured Mutants of Salmonella enterica Serovar Abortusovis in Mice and Sheep

ABSTRACT Three live vaccine candidates of Salmonella enterica subspecies I serotype Abortusovis (aroA, cya crp cdt, and plasmid-cured strains) have been developed, and their efficacies in inducing

Salmonella typhimurium Persists within Macrophages in the Mesenteric Lymph Nodes of Chronically Infected Nramp1 + / + Mice and Can Be Reactivated by IFNγ Neutralization

Host-adapted strains of Salmonella are capable of establishing a persistent infection in their host often in the absence of clinical disease and interferon-γ, which may affect the level of macrophage activation, plays an essential role in the control of the persistent S. typhimurium infection in mice.

Reference collection of strains of the Salmonella typhimurium complex from natural populations.

A collection of 72 reference strains of the Salmonella typhimurium complex of clones recovered from a variety of hosts and environmental sources in diverse geographic locations has been established

Salmonella reference collection B (SARB): strains of 37 serovars of subspecies I.

A reference collection of 72 strains representing 37 serovars of Salmonella subspecies I has been established, and genetic relationships among the ETs are indicated in an evolutionary tree constructed by the neighbour-joining method from a matrix of Nei's standard genetic distance.
