an evaluation of two methods of substrate alkalinization for the identification of bordetella avium and other similar organisms.the effect of using two different techniques for the detection of substrate alkalinization by bordetella avium and reference strains of alcaligenes faecalis and b. bronchiseptica was evaluated. the techniques used were those described by otto and pickett and hinz et al. each test was in tubes sealed by either screw caps or cotton wool plugs. the alkalinization patterns obtained depended upon both the technique and the type of seal used.19863739213
glycoconjugates as components of receptors for bordetella avium on the tracheal mucosa of turkeys.bordetella avium is an important respiratory tract pathogen of turkeys. in common with other pathogenic bordetellae, b avium manifests a tissue tropism for cilia of the respiratory tract epithelium. to determine the molecular characteristics of the host cell receptors for b avium, we used hemagglutination and in vivo adherence assays. carbohydrates, mucus, sialic acid-specific lectin, and other glycoconjugates were evaluated for their ability to competitively inhibit binding of b avium to host c ...19938116933
further characterization of the agent causing coryza in turkeys.a total of 128 isolates of alcaligenes faecalis, from the respiratory tract of turkeys and chickens, were identified and divided into two types designated type i and type ii. type i isolates were pathogenic in poults, hemagglutinated guinea pig red blood cells (rbcs), and did not grow on minimal essential medium (mem) agar, and most did not grow in 6.5% nacl broth. type ii isolates were nonpathogenic and nonhemagglutinating and grew on mem agar, and most grew in 6.5% nacl broth. hemagglutination ...19854074238
tracheal mucus transport rate in normal turkeys and in turkeys infected with bordetella avium (alcaligenes faecalis).using the radiopharmaceutical 99mtechnetium-sulfur colloid, the tracheal mucus transport rate (tmtr) was measured in healthy unanesthetized turkeys and in turkeys infected with bordetella avium. the tmtr of uninfected turkeys was 35.6 +/- 14.4 cm/min. the tmtr of b. avium-infected turkeys was normal on days 0 through 14 postexposure (pe), despite heavy bacterial colonization of the tracheal epithelium. on day 21 pe, the tmtr of b. avium-infected turkeys was significantly depressed (p less than o ...19863729858
passive immunization versus adhesion of bordetella avium to the tracheal mucosa of turkeys.three-week-old turkeys were passively immunized with convalescent serum or treated with tracheal washings from turkeys infected with bordetella avium. western blot analysis of the convalescent serum and tracheal washings revealed at least two bands of interaction with outer membrane protein preparations of b. avium. adherence of b. avium in vivo to tracheal mucosa was determined and compared in treated and untreated turkeys. passive immunization with convalescent serum reduced adherence of b. av ...19883196265
immune response of poults following intranasal inoculation with artvax vaccine and a formalin-inactivated bordetella avium bacterin.poults 3 weeks and older developed temporary tracheal resistance to intranasal challenge following inoculation of either artvax vaccine or formalin-inactivated bordetella avium bacterin by the intranasal and eyedrop routes. resistance usually persisted for 3-4 weeks after b. avium challenge. however, with constant exposure to infected controls, the vaccinated birds eventually developed tracheal infection. day-old poults did not respond to either the artvax or the bacterin and were completely sus ...19854074243

clearance of bacteria in turkeys with bordetella avium-induced tracheitis.quantitative clearance of aerosolized escherichia coli from the trachea, lung, and air sacs was measured in turkeys infected with bordetella avium. clearance of e. coli in turkeys with b. avium-induced tracheitis was minimally affected early in infection. sixteen to 23 days after infection with b. avium, sporadic, mild depressions in clearance of e. coli were observed in the tracheas, which had large areas of deciliated tracheal epithelium or replacement of normal epithelium by immature hyperpla ...19863524545
production of monoclonal antibodies to the bordetella avium 41-kilodalton surface protein and characterization of the hemagglutinin.production of monoclonal antibodies (mabs) to bordetella avium surface proteins led to further characterization of the hemagglutinin. proteins obtained by homogenization of whole-cell b. avium were used to immunize mice for the production of monoclonal antibodies. immunoprecipitation and western blot techniques were used to determine the specificity of three mabs, which all recognized the b. avium 41-kilodalton (kd) surface protein. in addition, all of the mabs inhibited hemagglutination (ha) of ...19947980267
mucosal and systemic humoral immune response to bordetella avium in experimentally infected turkeys.antibody response to bordetella avium was measured in serum and mucosal secretions of experimentally infected turkeys. two-day-old turkeys were inoculated with b. avium, and four inoculated turkeys and four uninoculated control birds per trial were euthanatized weekly from 1 through 8 weeks postinoculation (pi). maternal antibody of the igg isotype, present in all 2-day-old birds sampled, decreased to background levels by 3 weeks of age. antibody (igg, igm, iga) was detected in serum, tracheal w ...19947980268
bordetella avium hemagglutination and motility mutants: isolation, characterization, and pathogenicity.transposon mutagenesis was used to produce bordetella avium mutants, which were screened for the lack of potential virulence factors, including a hemagglutinin, flagella, pili, and toxins. a mini-tn10 transposon containing a kanamycin-resistance gene was introduced into the chromosomal dna of the virulent 002/s isolate by electroporation. a hemagglutination-negative (ha-) mutant and a motility-negative mutant were obtained. southern blot analysis showed that only the motility-negative mutant con ...19948002900
cloning and sequencing of a bordetella pertussis serum resistance locus.we have characterized a new virulence factor in bordetella pertussis: serum resistance. compared with escherichia coli hb101, wild-type b. pertussis was relatively resistant to classical-pathway, complement-dependent killing by normal human serum. however, a mutant of b. pertussis (bpm2041) which is less virulent in mice and which has tn5 lac inserted in a previously uncharacterized bvg-regulated gene was found to be at least 10-fold more susceptible to serum killing than the wild type. we have ...19947927748
identification and characterization of the treponema pallidum tpn50 gene, an ompa homolog.treponema pallidum is a pathogenic spirochete that has no known genetic exchange mechanisms. in order to identify treponemal genes encoding surface and secreted proteins, we carried out tnphoa mutagenesis of a t. pallidum genomic dna library in escherichia coli. several of the resulting clones expressed enzymatically active t. pallidum-alkaline phosphatase fusion proteins. the dna sequence of the 5' portion of a number of the treponemal genes was obtained and analyzed. a recombinant clone harbor ...19948112835
uptake of ferritin and bordetella avium in bronchus-associated lymphoid tissue of turkeys.the uptake of macromolecular and particulate materials in bronchus-associated lymphoid tissue (balt) in turkeys was examined using transmission electron microscopy. tracer materials used were live and ultraviolet-killed (uv-killed) bordetella avium and ferritin. suspensions of bacteria and ferritin were instilled via intratracheal catheterization and allowed to remain in contact with the respiratory surfaces for 0, 10, 30, 60, 90, and 120 min. ferritin and b. avium were taken up by both ciliated ...19948042286
identification of bordetella avium using the polymerase chain reaction.a dna fragment from bordetella pertussis, encoding the fim2 fimbrial subunit gene with adjacent sequences, was used as a probe for the detection of homologous sequences in chromosomal dna of bordetella avium. a 1.8 kb sa1i-psti fragment from the genome of b. avium, which hybridized with the probe, was isolated and sequenced. no fimbrial subunit gene was located on the b. avium dna fragment. two regions could be distinguished in the sequence of the fragment. region 1, which was 80% identical to t ...19938271920
isolation of a putative fimbrial adhesin from bordetella pertussis and the identification of its gene.we report the purification of a minor bordetella pertussis fimbrial subunit, designated fimd, and the identification of its gene (fimd). fimd could be purified from the bulk of major fimbrial subunits by exploiting the fact that major subunit-subunit interactions are more stable in the presence of sds than minor-major subunit interactions. to locate the gene for fimd, internal peptides of fimd were generated, purified and sequenced. subsequently, an oligonucleotide probe, based on the primary se ...19938105363
tracheal lesions in young turkeys infected with bordetella avium.forty-six turkeys were inoculated intranasally with bordetella avium at 3 days of age. inoculated and non-inoculated turkeys (n = 72) were necropsied sequentially from post-exposure days (ped) 3 to 53. tracheal lesions were studied histologically. mild fibrinopurulent tracheitis, associated with bacterial colonization of ciliated epithelium, was seen at ped 7 to 10. at ped 14 and 21, there were numerous bacterial colonies, loss of ciliated cells, epithelial hyperplasia, depletion of mucus, and d ...19846497122
identification of a bordetella pertussis regulatory factor required for transcription of the pertussis toxin operon in escherichia coli.transcription of the pertussis toxin operon (ptx) is positively regulated in bordetella pertussis by the bvgas locus. however, a ptx-lacz transcriptional fusion in escherichia coli cannot be activated by bvgas in trans. this suggests that an additional factor(s) is required for transcription of ptx. a gene encoding a bvg accessory factor (baf) was identified by its ability to activate an e. coli ptx-lacz fusion in the presence of bvgas. the expression of ptx-lacz was decreased by the addition of ...19957601846
isolation of a bordetella avium-like organism from a human specimen.the isolation of a strain of bordetella for which the species could not be determined but which most closely resembled bordetella avium is reported. the strain was isolated in mixed culture from an ear swab of a patient suffering from chronic otitis media. the bacterium showed the typical biochemical reactions of bordetella avium but differed in antimicrobial resistance pattern, protein and fatty acid composition, and dna-dna and dna-rrna hybridization. further studies will clarify the taxonomic ...19957556237
bordetella avium: an opportunistic pathogen in leghorn chickens.experiments were conducted in order to produce bordetellosis in specific-pathogen-free (spf) leghorn chickens. in the first and second of three experiments, young turkeys and chickens, respectively, were allotted into groups and challenged at 2 weeks of age with one of seven different isolates of bordetella avium and two isolates of b. avium-like bacteria. isolates of b. avium with the smooth colony type were pathogenic in turkeys but not in chickens. the b. avium-like bacteria and b. avium isol ...19957677659
