identification of different regions among strains of yersinia pestis by suppression subtractive hybridization.yersinia pestis, the causative agent of bubonic and pneumonic plague, has been classified into four biovars: antiqua, mediaevalis, orientalis and microtus. although the entire genome sequences of three y. pestis strains, co92, kim and 91001, of biovar orientalis, mediaevalis and microtus, respectively, have been decoded, the genome sequence of the biovar antiqua strain is unknown. in an initial effort to find antiqua-specific sequences, suppression subtractive hybridization (ssh) was performed a ...200515993571
wildlife plague surveillance near the china-kazakhstan border: 2012-2015.plague is a zoonotic disease caused by the bacterium yersinia pestis. this pathogen can be transmitted by fleas and has an enzootic cycle, circulating among small mammals, and occasionally epizootic cycles, infecting other species. in china, infected wild rodents are primarily reservoirs of y. pestis and are related to human infection (int. j. infect. dis., 33, 2015 and 67; bmc microbiol., 9, 2009 and 205). because shepherd dogs prey on and eat rodents (e.g. marmots and mice), they are valuable ...201728117561
