aeromonas flagella (polar and lateral) are enterocyte adhesins that contribute to biofilm formation on surfaces.aeromonas spp. (gram-negative, aquatic bacteria which include enteropathogenic strains) have two distinct flagellar systems, namely a polar flagellum for swimming in liquid and multiple lateral flagella for swarming over surfaces. only approximately 60% of mesophilic strains can produce lateral flagella. to evaluate flagellar contributions to aeromonas intestinal colonization, we compared polar and lateral flagellar mutant strains of a diarrheal isolate of aeromonas caviae for the ability to adh ...200415039313
differential proteomic analysis of aeromonas salmonicida outer membrane proteins in response to low iron and in vivo growth conditions.aeromonas salmonicida subsp. salmonicida is the etiological agent of furunculosis, a serious infectious disease of salmonids. bacterial phenotypes are known to change in vivo compared to the in vitro state. proteomic analysis of in vivo phenotypes is usually not possible due to insufficient biomass. using an in vivo growth chamber model, the pathogenic fish bacterium a. salmonicida was cultured in pure culture in vivo in its host, the atlantic salmon, to obtain sufficient biomass to allow proteo ...200415048988
expression of chitinase-encoding genes in bacillus thuringiensis and toxicity of engineered b. thuringiensis subsp. aizawai toward lymantria dispar larvae.chitinase genes from aeromonas hydrophila and bacillus circulans no.4.1 were cloned into the plasmid phy300plk and designated as phya2 and phyb43, respectively. both plasmids were introduced into various strains of b. thuringiensis by electroporation. plasmid phyb43 was generally structurally stable, but showed lower segregrational stability than phya2 in b. thuringiensis subsp. aizawai when grown under nonselective conditions. the production of chitinase from b. thuringiensis subsp. aizawai har ...200415057461

differential expression of the enolase gene under in vivo versus in vitro growth conditions of aeromonas hydrophila.aeromonas hydrophila is an emerging human pathogen that leads to gastroenteritis and other invasive diseases. by using a murine peritoneal culture (mpc) model, we identified via restriction fragment differential display pcr (rfddpcr) five genes of a. hydrophila that were differentially expressed under in vivo versus in vitro growth conditions. the gene encoding enolase was among those five genes that were differentially up regulated. enolase is a glycolytic enzyme and its surface expression was ...200312668143
coordination geometries of metal ions in d- or l-captopril-inhibited metallo-beta-lactamases.d- and l-captopril are competitive inhibitors of metallo-beta-lactamases. for the enzymes from bacillus cereus (bcii) and aeromonas hydrophila (cpha), we found that the mononuclear enzymes are the favored targets for inhibition. by combining results from extended x-ray absorption fine structure, perturbed angular correlation of gamma-rays spectroscopy, and a study of metal ion binding, we derived that for cd(ii)1-bcii, the thiolate sulfur of d-captopril binds to the metal ion located at the site ...200312668674
influence of polarisation and differentiation on interaction of 43-kda outer-membrane protein of aeromonas caviae with human enterocyte-like caco-2 cell has been recognised that adherence and invasion to host cells are important steps in the pathogenesis of entero-pathogenic bacteria, including aeromonas caviae. however, the virulence factors of a. caviae remain, for the most part, poorly known. this study examined the interaction of a. caviae isolates to caco-2 cells in different polarisation and differentiation conditions. the adherence of a. caviae may be related to accessibility of host cell basolateral receptors. aggregative a. caviae is ...200312684708
