Typification of virulent and low virulence Babesia bigemina clones by 18S rRNA and rap-1c
The population structure of original Babesia bigemina isolates and reference strains with a defined phenotypic profile was assessed using 18S rRNA and rap-1c genes. Two reference strains, BbiS2P-c (virulent) and BbiS1A-c ...
Pathogenomic Inference of Virulence-Associated Genes in Leptospira interrogans
(Public Library of Science, 2013)
Leptospirosis is a globally important, neglected zoonotic infection caused by spirochetes of the genus Leptospira. Since genetic transformation remains technically limited for pathogenic Leptospira, a systems biology ...
Virulence and antimicrobial resistance of Escherichia coli isolated from chicken meat, beef, and raw milk
(Faculty of Veterinary Sciences - Universidad Austral de Chile, 2022)
Bovine mastitis caused by streptococcus uberis. Virulence factors and biofilm
(OMICS International, 2017-12)
Bovine mastitis is a multifactorial disease, commonly caused by microorganisms. The pathology affects dairy farms worldwide and causes significant economic losses. Different pathogens can cause the disease and they are ...
Genome sequence and comparative analysis of Avibacterium paragallinarum
(Biomedical Informatics, 2013)
Background: Avibacterium paragallinarum, the causative agent of infectious coryza, is a highly contagious respiratory acute disease of poultry, which affects commercial chickens, laying hens and broilers worldwide. ...
ROP18 and ROP5 alleles combinations are related with virulence of T. gondii isolates from Argentina
(Elsevier Ireland, 2021-03)
The allelic combination of ROP18/ROP5 genes of Toxoplasma gondii has been shown to be highly predictive of mouse virulence in canonical isolates and strains. The aims of this study were to analyze the alleles present in ...
Traceability of potential enterotoxigenic Bacillus cereus in bee-pollen samples from Argentina throughout the production process
(Elsevier Science, 2020-12)
Bee-pollen is a functional food sold for human and animal consumption but also is a favorable microhabitat for many spore-forming bacteria. Among them, Bacillus cereus can produce several toxins and other virulence factors, ...
Virulence profile comparison between LEE-negative Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) strains isolated from cattle and humans
(Elsevier Science, 2010-07)
For comparison purposes, the prevalence of 8 virulence markers was investigated, by PCR, in 153 cattle and 47 human Locus for Enterocyte Effacement (LEE)-negative Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) strains ...
Understanding the Detection of Shiga Toxin Producing Escherichia Coli: Virulence Factors, Pathogenicity Islands or Serotypes?
(Biomedical Research Network, 2018-03)
Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) are important food borne pathogens that can cause severe disease in children by producingtwo toxins (Stx1 and Stx2). This bacteria harbor several additional virulence factorsand ...
Protection efficacy of Argentinian isolates of Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis with different genotypes and virulence in a murine model
Paratuberculosis is a chronic disease caused by Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (Map). The disease causes economic losses and, therefore, it is imperative to follow proper control strategies, which should include ...
