Manipulation of intestinal epithelial cell function by the cell contact-dependent type III secretion systems of Vibrio parahaemolyticus
(Frontiers Media, 2014-01-10)
Vibrio parahaemolyticus elicits gastroenteritis by deploying Type III Secretion Systems (TTSS) to deliver effector proteins into epithelial cells of the human intestinal tract. The bacteria must adhere to the human cells ...
The Vibrio parahaemolyticus Type III Secretion Systems manipulate host cell MAPK for critical steps in pathogenesis
(BioMed Central, 2011)
Background:Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a food-borne pathogen causing inflammation of the gastrointestinal epithelium. Pathogenic strains of this bacterium possess two Type III Secretion Systems (TTSS) that deliver effector ...
The Vibrio parahaemolyticus ToxRS Regulator Is Required for Stress Tolerance and Colonization in a Novel Orogastric Streptomycin-Induced Adult Murine Model
(American Society for Microbiology, 2012-03)
Vibrio parahaemolyticus, a marine bacterium, is the causative agent of gastroenteritis associated with the consumption of seafood. It contains a homologue of the toxRS operon that in V. cholerae is the key regulator of ...
Pathogenic bacteria in our oceans' shellfish
(Microbiology Society, 2019-02)
Mussels, oysters, clams – some of the most appetising culinary dishes, such as moules-frites, feature shellfish. These foods are considered healthy as they are fresh from the ocean, but looks can be deceiving.
In vitro comparative cytotoxicity study of a novel biocidal iodo-thiocyanate complex
Novel biocides, which avoid the induction of cross-resistance to antibiotics, are an urgent societal requirement. Here, we compared the cytotoxic and bactericidal effects of a new antimicrobial agent, the iodo-thiocyanate ...
