Lectin typing of campylobacter concisus
(American Society for Microbiology, 2002-02-01)
A total of 44 clinical isolates and the type strain of the putative pathogen Campylobacter concisus were grouped based on their reactions with plant lectins. The optimized lectin typing system used C. concisus strains ...
Characterisation and differentiation of lactobacilli by lectin typing
(Microbiology Society, 2001-12-01)
Lactobacillus isolates from healthy Estonian and Swedish children were characterised by a lectin typing technique; 56 isolates from six species (L. acidophilus, L. paracasei, L. plantarum, L. fermentum, L. brevis and L. ...
Distribution of oxytetracycline resistance plasmids between aeromonads in hospital and aquaculture environments: implication of tn1721 in dissemination of the tetracycline resistance determinant tet a
(American Society for Microbiology, 2000-09-01)
Oxytetracycline-resistant (OTT) mesophilic aeromonads were recovered from untreated hospital effluent (72 isolates) and from fish farm hatchery tanks (91 isolates) at sites within the English Lake District, Cumbria, England. ...
Evaluation of culture methods and a dna probe-based pcr assay for detection of campylobacter species in clinical specimens of feces
(American Society for Microbiology, 2003-07-01)
Campylobacter species are the leading agents of bacterial gastroenteritis in developed countries. In this study 320 specimens of feces from patients with symptoms of acute gastroenteritis were cultured for Campylobacter ...
Distribution, localization, and phylogeny of abundant populations of crenarchaeota in anaerobic granular sludge
(American Society for Microbiology, 2005-11-01)
Eight anaerobic granular sludges were surveyed for Crenarchaeota using rRNA gene cloning. Microbial arrangement and substrate uptake patterns were elucidated by fluorescent in situ hybridization and beta imaging. Group 1.3 ...
An improved genetic programming technique for the classification of raman spectra
(Elsevier BV, 2005-08-01)
In vivo phase variation and serologic response to lipooligosaccharide of campylobacter jejuni in experimental human infection
(American Society for Microbiology, 2004-01-23)
Some Campylobacter jejuni strains which exhibit mimicry of gangliosides in their lipooligosaccharides (LOSs) are associated with development of Guillain-Barre syndrome, which complicates the selection of a suitable C. ...
An abnormal but functionally active complement component c9 protein found in an irish family with subtotal c9 deficiency
Two independently segregating C9 genetic defects have previously been reported in two siblings in an Irish family with subtotal C9 deficiency. One defect would lead to an abnormal C9 protein, with replacement of a cysteine ...
Characterization of two autoreplicative regions of the inchi2 plasmid r478: rephi2a and rephi1a(r478)
(Microbiology Society, 2001-06-01)
Plasmids of the incompatibility groups HI and HII (IncH plasmids) generally confer multiple antibiotic resistances upon their host pathogenic strain. IncHI group plasmids are distinguished by their property of optimal ...
High-throughput inference of protein-protein interfaces from unassigned nmr data
(Oxford University Press (OUP), 2005-06-01)
One of the limiting factors in deciphering transcriptional regulatory networks is the effectiveness of motif-finding software. An emerging avenue for improving motif-finding accuracy aims to incorporate generalized binding ...
