combining real-time polymerase chain reaction using sybr green i detection and sequencing to identify vertebrate bloodmeals in fleas.programs that aim to control vector-borne zoonotic diseases require information on zoonotic hosts and on the feeding behavior of bridging vectors that are capable of transmitting pathogens from those hosts to humans. here we describe an assay developed to identify bloodmeals in field-collected cat fleas (ctenocephalides felis bouché) to assess this species' potential role as a yersinia pestis bridging vector in a plague-endemic region of uganda. our assay uses a single primer set and sybr green ...023270174

immunological distinctions of two strains of the mouse typhoid group isolated during two spontaneous outbreaks among the same stock.two strains of the paratyphoid b-enteritidis group causing separate epidemics of mouse typhoid among 2,500 to 4,000 cancer breeding mice are found to be antigenically different. mouse typhoid i, isolated from the first outbreak, is related but not identical with two strains of enteritidis, while mouse typhoid ii is related to but not identical with the human paratyphoid b strains. in a separate paper in this series, webster has identified mouse typhoid ii strain with bacillus pestis caviae smith ...192219868651
experimental epidemiology : ii. effect of the addition of healthy mice to a population suffering from mouse typhoid.1. a kind of mouse village was set up into which was introduced a small number of mice fed on a culture of so called mouse typhoid (bacillus pestis cavice of the bacillus paratyphosus b group) bacillus. the spread of the infection so induced to the cages, or "homes," of the other mice was left to accident through the attendant who fed the animals and cleaned the cages. that this means was likely to be sufficient was deduced from the epidemic reported by lynch. a spot map was kept throughout the ...192219868657
experiments on normal and immune mice with a bacillus of mouse typhoid.if live cultures of a mouse strain of bacillus pestis caviae are injected intrapleurally or intraperitoneally into normal mice, there occurs an initial lag in the rate of bacterial multiplication lasting a few hours, followed by a rapid and continued acceleration of growth until the death of the animal. if live cultures of this organism are given per os to normal mice, there occurs an incubation period of 5 to 6 days, after which the animal usually develops symptoms of disease and succumbs. a sm ...192219868658
the intestinal flora in mouse typhoid infection.the normal flora of laboratory mice at the rockefeller institute, fed on a bread and milk diet, was determined. bacillus acidophilus and bacillus bifidus outnumber the bacillus coli, bacillus acidi lactici, and bacillus coli communior group about twenty-five to one. white and yellow cocci which may or may not liquefy gelatin are occasionally noted; spirochetal and vibrio forms and yeasts are usually seen in stained preparations. this flora does not change when mice are artificially infected per ...192319868710
microbic virulence and host susceptibility in mouse typhoid infection.mice bred at the rockefeller institute vary in their susceptibility to mouse typhoid infection caused by a certain strain of bacillus pestis caviae. this graded variation may be roughly analyzed as follows: in any series infected per os with a fixed dose, 20 to 30 per cent show no sign of infection, no positive blood cultures, and no agglutinins; 5 or 10 per cent present symptoms of disease, positive blood cultures, and then recover with or without homologous agglutinins; 70 or 80 per cent devel ...192319868724
the virulence of an epidemic strain of bacillus pestis caviae.ever since pasteur's demonstration of the modifying effect of animal passage on the virulence of bacteria, this device has been regarded as of great importance in intensifying infective capacity. it is not often, however, that extensive parallel tests have been made of the power of a microorganism to produce infection in a species of animal which is its natural habitat and under conditions in which the normal as well as artificial portal of entry is employed, and the potency of the microorganism ...192319868759
microbic virulence and host susceptibility in paratyphoid-enteritidis infection of white mice : vi. the relative susceptibility of different strains of mice to per os infection with the type ii bacillus of mouse typhoid (bacillus pestis caviae).five separate strains of mice have been tested for their relative susceptibility to per os infection with the type ii bacillus of mouse typhoid (bacillus pestis caviae), more than 500 individuals of each strain having been employed in the course of 12 months. clear-cut differences in the susceptibility of these strains to the infection have been shown to exist.192519868981
microbic virulence and host susceptibility in paratyphoid-enteritidis infection of white mice : vii. seasonal variation in the susceptibility of different strains of mice to per os infection with the type ii bacillus of mouse typhoid (bacillus pestis caviae).seasonal variations are described in the response of five strains of mice to inoculation with the type ii bacillus of mouse typhoid (bacillus pestis caviae). there occurred in the case of all strains a high peak of mortality during the spring, a lower death rate during the summer, and a subsequent autumn rise in the number of deaths.192519868982
studies on the bacteriophage of d'herelle : iv. concerning the oneness of the bacteriophage.lytic filtrates, active against bacillus dysenterioe shiga, bacillus coli, bacillus pestis cavioe, and staphylococcus respectively, proved to be differently affected by changes in hydrogen ion concentration. anti-staphylococcus lysin was the least resistant of the four, showing deterioration in 3 hours at 7 degrees c. beyond the zone of hydrogen ion concentration limited by c(h) = 6.3 x 10(-5) and c(h) = 1.6 x 10(-9). under the same conditions, the zone of resistance of anti-coli filtrate lay be ...192519869092
microbic virulence and host susceptibility in paratyphoid-enteritidis infection of white mice : ix. the relationship of dosage to mortality rate, survival time, and cage population.epidemics of mouse typhoid set up among the rockefeller institute strain of mice were studied over a period of 6 months. during this time the relationship of cage number of mouse typhoid bacilli to mortality, total population, and survival time was determined. a single virulence titration of the epidemic strain was made, and at the end of the experiment all survivors were examined for evidence of infection. the following conclusions may be drawn for the data here presented. 1. the available dosa ...192619869111
microbic virulence and host susceptibility in paratyphoid-enteritidis infection of white mice : x. the relative susceptibility of different strains of mice to per os infection with the type ii bacillus of mouse typhoid (bacillus pestis cavlae). further studies.four separate strains of mice have been tested for their relative susceptibility to per os infection with the type ii bacillus of mouse typhoid (bacillus pestis caviae), 300 to 600 individuals of each strain having been employed in the course of 12 months. in confirmation of a previous paper, clear-cut differences in the susceptibility of these strains have been shown to exist. in general, the colored strains were distinctly less resistant than the albino strains.192619869112
microbic virulence and host susceptibility in paratyphoid-enteritidis infection of white mice : xi. seasonal variation in the susceptibility of different strains of mice to per os infection with the type ii bacillus of mouse typhoid (bacillus pestis caviae). further studies.four unrelated strains of mice were tested over a period of 1 year for their seasonal variation in susceptibility to per os feeding with a culture of bacillus pestis caviae of known virulence. certain consistent fluctuations, determined to be in general agreement with those already recorded in a previous paper, were found and described.192619869113
studies on the bacteriophage of d'herelle : vi. on the virulence of the overgrowth in the lysed cultures of bacillus pestis caviae (m. t. ii).resistants isolated from the overgrowth of cultures of b. pestis caviae (m. t. ii) lysed by various strains of specific bacteriophage proved to be avirulent when administered to mice by feeding, or by intraperitoneal injection. these cultures remained resistant to the action of bacteriophage so long as they were carried on agar. when transferred to broth, however, one group of resistants, namely, those isolated by means of "weak" phages, became susceptible to lysis after five to seven daily pass ...192619869210

the enzymic hydrolysis of phloridzin.1. considering previously published data on the velocity of hydrolysis of glucosides by acids, it is shown that phloridzin, judged from the standpoint of the velocity coefficient and the critical increment for hydrolysis, resembles the gamma-fructosides (sucrose, raffinose and melezitose) more closely than it does the normal glucosides (salicin, arbutin, maltose, etc.). 2. previous work on the enzymic hydrolysis of phloridzin shows that it is not hydrolysed by emulsin, but that it is hydrolysed ...193019872565
observations on the infection of chick embryos with bacterium tularense, brucella, and pasteurella pestis.1. comparison of the infections of chick embryos by the chorio-allantoic route indicates that bacterium tularense and brucella suis, abortus, and melitensis exhibit varying degrees of facultative intracellular parasitism. pasteurella pestis is adapted to rapid proliferation and spread in the intercellular fluids. 2. in the early stages of infection bacterium tularense has a marked affinity for growth within ectodermal epithelial cells. brucella suis and brucella abortus differ in their selectivi ...194119871129
