Narjol González-Escalona, Marc A. Allard, Eric W. Brown, Shashi Sharma, Maria Hoffmann Whole genome sequencing can provide essential public health information. However, it is now known that widely used short-read methods have the potential to miss some randomly-distributed segments of genomes. This can prevent phages, plasmids, and virulence factors from being detected or properly identified....

Moloko G. Mathipa, Arun K. Bhunia, Mapitsi S. Thantsha Background Listeria monocytogenes is an intracellular foodborne pathogen that employs a number of strategies to survive challenging gastrointestinal conditions. It proliferates in the gut and subsequently causes listeriosis in high-risk individuals. Therefore, inhibition of its adherence to the intestinal receptors is crucial in controlling...

Abstract Wild animals are involved in zoonotic disease transmission cycles. These are generally complex and poorly understood, especially among animals adapted to life in human ecosystems. Raccoons are reservoirs and effective carriers for infectious agents such as Salmonella throughout different environments and contribute to the transference of resistance genes. This study examined the presence...

Vibrio parahaemolyticus RIMD2210633 secretes both chitinase and chitin oligosaccharide deacetylase and produces β-N-acetyl-d-glucosaminyl-(1,4)-d-glucosamine (GlcNAc-GlcN) from chitin. Previously, we reported that GlcNAc-GlcN induces chitinase production by several strains of Vibrio harboring chitin oligosaccharide deacetylase genes (Hirano et al. Glycobiology 19:1049-1053, 2009). The...

Summary The opportunistic human pathogen Vibrio vulnificus inhabits warm coastal waters and asymptomatically colonizes seafood, most commonly oysters. We previously characterized an isolate that exhibited greater biofilm formation, aggregation and oyster colonization than its parent. This was due, in part, to the production of a Type IV Tad pilus (Iam). However, the locus lacked key processing...

Summary Although many typical Outer membrane proteins (OMPs) have been well characterized, the biological functions of many OMPs remain largely elusive. In this study, we successfully constructed 29 OMP knock‐out strains in the pathogen Aeromonas hydrophila, which account for about 50% of all predicted OMPs in this bacterial species. We then further validated the antibiotics' susceptibility...

e-First Articles. Whole genome sequencing (WGS) is rapidly replacing other molecular techniques for identifying and subtyping bacterial isolates. The resolution or discrimination offered by WGS is significantly higher than that offered by other molecular techniques, and WGS readily allows infrequent differences that occur between 2 closely related strains to be found. In this investigation, WGS...
