detection of zoonotic enteropathogens in children and domestic animals in a semirural community in ecuador.animals are important reservoirs of zoonotic enteropathogens, and transmission to humans occurs more frequently in low- and middle-income countries (lmics), where small-scale livestock production is common. in this study, we investigated the presence of zoonotic enteropathogens in stool samples from 64 asymptomatic children and 203 domestic animals of 62 households in a semirural community in ecuador between june and august 2014. multilocus sequence typing (mlst) was used to assess zoonotic tran ...201627208122
survival and growth of escherichia coli o157:h7, yersinia enterocolitica and salmonella enteritidis on decontaminated and untreated meat.decontamination of meat or carcasses may have an effect in reducing the number of pathogens. recontamination with other pathogens during cutting or packaging may, however, result in higher growth on decontaminated than on untreated meat due to the lack of competing non-pathogenic microorganisms. in this study we compared the growth of pathogens during storage at 10°c (worst case condition) on untreated meat and meat that had been decontaminated by steam vacuuming combined with spraying with 0.2 ...200122061504

the invasin protein of yersinia enterocolitica: internalization of invasin-bearing bacteria by eukaryotic cells is associated with reorganization of the cytoskeleton.yersinia enterocolitica, a facultative intracellular pathogen of mammals, readily enters (i.e., invades) cultured eukaryotic cells, a process that can be conferred by the cloned inv locus of the species. we have studied the mechanism by which the product of inv, a microbial outer membrane protein termed "invasin," mediates the internalization of bacteria by hep-2 cells and chicken embryo fibroblasts. invasin-bearing bacteria initially bound the filopodia and the leading edges of cultured cells. ...19921730744
