Assessing the diversity of the virulence potential of Escherichia coli isolated from bacteremia in São Paulo, Brazil
(Associação Brasileira de Divulgação Científica, 2013-11-01)
Most of the knowledge of the virulence determinants of extraintestinal pathogenic Escherichia coli (ExPEC) comes from studies with human strains causing urinary tract infections and neonatal meningitis and animal strains ...
Backbone chemical shift assignment of macrophage infectivity potentiator virulence factor of Trypanosoma cruzi
Chagas disease is a trypanosomiasis disease inflicted by Trypanosoma cruzi parasite. In Latin America, at least 10 million people are infected and annually, 10,000 casualties are deplored. Macrophage infectivity potentiator ...
Biochemical characterization of potential virulence markers in the human fungal pathogen Pseudallescheria boydii
(TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD, 2009)
The ubiquitous Pseudallescheria boydii (anamorph Scedosporium apiospermum) is a saprophytic filamentous fungus recognized as a potent etiologic agent of a wide variety of infections in immunocompromised as well as in ...
Photodynamic inactivation of virulence factors of Candida strains isolated from patients with denture stomatitis
(Elsevier B. V., 2015-09-01)
Candida species are major microorganisms isolated in denture stomatitis (DS), an inflammatory process of the mucosa underlying removable dental prostheses, and express a variety of virulence factors that can increase their ...
Putative virulence factors of Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis FRC41: vaccine potential and protein expression
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2016-05-16)
Background: Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis, a facultative intracellular bacterial pathogen, is the etiological agent of caseous lymphadenitis (CLA), an infectious disease that affects sheep and goats and it is responsible ...
The ceja-1 sequence as a potential new molecular marker for Paracoccidioides brasiliensis infection
(WILEY-BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, INC, 2010)
P>We have developed a two-step PCR assay that amplifies a region of the ceja-1 sequence that is specific for virulent strains of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis. An internal region of the ceja-1 sequence was chosen for ...
Bacteriocinogenic and virulence potential of Enterococcus isolates obtained from raw milk and cheese
Aims To provide molecular and phenotypical characterization of Enterococcus isolates obtained from raw milk and cheese, regarding their bacteriocinogenic and virulence activity. Methods and Results Forty-three bacteriocinogenic ...
Pathogenic potential and genetic diversity of environmental and clinical isolates of Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Cold atmospheric pressure plasma jet modulates Candida albicans virulence traits
The occurrence of Candida-related infections depends on the interplay between fungal virulence factors and host's immune system. For this reason, interfering with fungal virulence is a promising approach to prevent or treat ...
Comparative transcriptomic analysis of Listeria monocytogenes reveals upregulation of stress genes and downregulation of virulence genes in response to essential oil extracted from Baccharis psiadioides
Listeria monocytogenes is a pathogenic microorganism in humans and is frequently transmitted by food. Methods to control the presence of Listeria in foods are necessary. In the present study, transcriptomics of L. monocytogenes ...
